Choose Wisely

If you had to pick five, and only five third-party iPhone
apps, what would they be? These can be from AppStore or CydiaStore
whatever, it doesn't matter. Just five apps, and why.


Pic related, it's my springboard

My Five:

  1. MyWi

    I use MyWi all the time! It's an Internet tethering app from Cydia
    that allows you to share your phones 3G with other devices. It's great
    for laptops if you want to use wifi, and great for desktops because
    you can tether through the USB cable also. This is what we use at my
    house for all of our Internet needs. Speedtest.net always ranks us in the
    high 3mbps. Which is good enough to watch netflix, and get a torrent
    going on the side.
  2. Netflix

    Ever since the Netflix app was released, all productivity stopped.
    Seriously, it's amazing to be able to watch your whole instant queue
    whenever you want. Why would you even need to sync movies to your
    iPod? Tv shows maybe? Which brings me to...
  3. Hulu+

    For shows you can't find on Netflix, try Hulu! With the plus
    subscription you get access to everything Hulu has to offer. Yes the
    ads are annoying, but think of all the shows you can watch!
  4. Words With Friends

    This one isn't really a recommendation to everyone, unless you really like Scrabble. This has just grown on me the past few months and now I'm addicted.
  5. Carcassonne

    A game I had never heard of before, and one day my brother-in-law gifted this to my wife and I. We tried it out, and didn't know what the heck was going on. As we figured it out, it quickly became one of our favorite games. Not only is a challenge mentally, but it looks great! It was one of the first apps we had with full retina display support. It looks fantastic! Greatly addictive.

So, those are my five. Please share which apps you can't live without!

I definitely agree with you on the first three you listed, especially the Netflix app. I also use a fitness app for my weight lifting routine, and a guitar tuner app quite a bit as well.
