    Fantastic post, thanks for the roundup already grabbed a few off the list :D

  • http://marlinclark.com Marlin

    I would have to add Gas Cubby because it’s beautifully designed. Also Textie because of it’s simplicity compared to the rest of the texting apps. Both take advantage of the retina display.

  • http://www.2miniman.com/ Elise

    I do like the design of the TipTheWaiter app (not mentioned here). Looks great, great custom keyboard, easy to use.

  • Sc

    You mentioned Pennies that died ages back and you missed out MoneyBook ? How could you do that ? :-|

    • John Burke

      MoneyBook is a cool app. Good suggestion.

  • Butter

    Nice collection but i really don’t understand how you find Tweetie to be the best Twitter client out there. It lacks way too many features.
    I have tried them all. The best Twitter client is Twittelator pro.
    Plus i would have to add Momento, ifiles, Tripdeck, 20 min meals and Convert

    • John Burke

      Thanks for the feedback. Everyone has their own opinion about which Twitter app is the best. Depending on what features you’re looking for, what kind of user experience and interface you like, etc. can all play into what makes it “the best”. Twittelator Pro certainly is a nice app, I’m sticking for Tweetie though.

      The other apps you mentioned are great too!

  • David

    So, which is better to use as a student: iStudiez Pro or Bento? I believe only one is a real word…

    • John Burke

      I’m a big fan of iStudiez Pro. It’s more student oriented “out of the box” and is designed to be used daily as a class companion, etc. Bento is a GREAT database tool but will require a little more customization to get it to do what you would want it to.

    Folks, Billings Touch is NOT free. It is $15. I really love the parent desktop app, but this herring that the iPhone app is free gets tossed around far too much.

    • http://emrah.omuris.com/ Emrah Omuris

      Billings Touch IS free. It has some premium features that you can purchase via In-app Purchasing. But you don’t have to. There are many free features you can use without purchasing the premium features.

      • http://www.moosedesign.com MooseDesign

        Exactly. The full version is NOT free. Don’t get me wrong, its great teaser marketing and I am not making the argument that its not worth it, but its extremely misleading if you are expecting to not have to pay because review sites call it free without any of the shades of grey.

  • dorian_grey

    Instapaper for iPhone, seriously? I LOVE the service and use it excessively, but the iPhone app is one of the most boring looking apps in the whole AppStore (the dark theme with its grey shades looks better, but readability is far from optimised).

    The iPad Version looks great though …

    I played flight control on a friends iPad the other day and lost an hour. Seriously addictive game and so simple, Absolutely gutted I didn’t come up with the idea myself.

  • Alan

    Sorry to see Pennies on here- but only because it’s been abandoned. Which is fair enough except that they’re still charging for it. Also, Interface has removed the live view due to SDK restrictions. Awesome Note has become my go-to app and I’m hoping for a high res update for an already beautiful app.

    Thank you for sharing! I have played some of this apps. Very addictive.
