What iPhone Apps Do I Want?

So I have my new iPhone. The number transfered from Verizon seemingly without problem. It's doing it's first sync now and then I'll do the 2.1 update (since with 2.0 I'm currently getting zero or one bar at home. Since I'm basically the last person I know with an iPhone, what applications do I want?

Thanks, that was really helpful. I went through most of the apps in the store and now have 2+ screens of free ones. I've loaded 8GB of music and TED videos and now have to build an album in iPhoto of what I want on the camera.

Pandora radio is the most used app that I have. Also:

WeatherBug
SplashID (!free)
GoSkyWatch (esp for you Howard, !free)
Labyrinth
Remote

I have Remote and I've played through all the levels in the free version of Labyrinth, very fun. I see WeatherBug is popular but I'm not getting much with it. I think I like just a web link to the National Weather Service page. Who is Hot is a clever twist on it, showing the weather of people in your address book.

My SpashID info from my palm sadly isn't even remotely current anymore. I use keychain on the mac.

GoSkyWatch looks good and I was going through the competitors last night. Starmap is the other and I'm not sure which I like more (Uranis and iAstronomica don't seem to be competitive). iCSC gives a nice chart for seeing conditions for the next 48 hours.

Get the free Facebook application - you can check in for two minutes once a day while otherwise waiting in line, etc....

I have TED videos on my iPhone now too- great suggestion!
