LOL

Well... where to start? Theres the usual run of the mill like Facebook, Twitter. I have Netflix on my iPhone. For movie theater times and movies... you MUST get Trailers by Apple. Its an awesome App. TuneIn Radio is great for listening to radio stations that are on the internet.

News wise I have USA Today, Fox News. Got eBay... heh... have TomTom on my iPhone as well. Games... anything Angry Birds. Bejeweled Blitz is a lot of fun. You play it against your Facebook friends. Words with Friends is also a blast to.

For Photo's and taking Videos... iMovie is a must for videos. Helps you make some cool vids!

Thats an example of what you can do. PS Express will help edit photos nicely and give it effects. Photobucket... so you can upload your photos fast. Oh... and Camera by Facebook... easily upload your photos to Facebook.

Ummmm... Disney wise.... Magic Guide... love it. My review of it is somewhere on here. Disney Gift Card helps you keep track of those pesky gift card totals. Then of course WDW Lines.

Grab Shazam. Open up the app and it will help you figure out what a song is. Trust me... you never realize you need it till you hear something and want to know what it is... lol. Some kind of free Flashlight App. Layar is a fun augmentation tool. Wont say too much about it because its a cool surprise... lol.

For shopping I have Best Buy, Amazon. Food wise I have Papa Johns, Pizza Hut, Dominos, Chipotle. You can order online with all of those.

For searching... since im into movies alot... I have IMDB which is a movie database. Google. Wikipanion for Wikipedia.

Oh... a MUST.... Find iPhone. If you EVER lose your iPhone... you can get on your PC or Mac, and find it. Someone stole it? You can wipe it out so they cant use it.

Night Sky is fun with the kids. Helps you find planets, and constellations.

OH! And Disney just released free apps of there channels... Disney Channel, Disney Junior, and Disney XD. My kids love them!

I hope thats a start... lol

I have two countdown apps for my Disney trips, the Disney store app, the where's my water game, the full bejeweled, scrabble, and Draw free apps, iBooks, c25k run app to keep in shape, say Hi translator, the undercover tourist app, beers and ears, and animation trivia Disney edition, which is great when you're waiting in line awesome

I have an iPad 1 which I let my kids use, and got an iPad 3 for my birthday. Was fine with just the one iPad but my daughter kept stealing it from me... lol! So ended up getting a 3 just so I could have my own. Also... like you know... got an iPhone 4 (Not an S... waiting for the iPhone 5... heh) and have a MacBook Pro. Im not a full convert... seems like I am, but im not. I have a PC that is connected to my HDTV for movies and tv shows. As far as I can tell... a Mac doesnt do that as well.

I personally just throw everything I can in iTunes or convert but I asked my old roommate and he said he downloaded a QuickTime codec and some other extension for VLC and he can watch them.
