My favorite are as follows

Nectar Card - really helpful on getting those extra points with having to remember to have vouchers at the cashier.

Argos - Very useful for ordering things for my father to then pick up in my home town.

Cross Country Trains - Very good app for finding out if a train is delayed and where on the line it is delayed at

Vintage Inns - Really handy for finding a decent pub in a new area

Bike Apps - Bike Hub, Map My Ride, Every Trail

I assume these are SmartPhone apps ?

Haven't got, or interested, in one of those just yet, my trusty Nokia 6300 still giving sterling service :)

I like Whatsapp too - I have unlimited texts on my contract but pictures cost me a fortune to send so Whatsapp is brilliant for that.

I'll have a look for the crossword solver - I never thought of using the phone to help me with crosswords :D

There are loads to choose from.

Whatsapp's amazing... it's even easier to send pix and music files between 2 phones using whatsapp than it is using Bluetooth.

Can't seem to find it when I search, is it for I-phone rather than I-pad

My brother has it on his iPad, so it must work on them as well as Androids.

Perhaps not suprisingly I have several weather related apps. ( Android )

Accu Weather / The Weather Channel / Rainfall Radar / sat24.com / Met Office ( Dissapointingly this has proved to be my worst weather app )

Then....in no particular order

Google Sky ( this is brilliant for anyone who has even the slightest interest in stargazing ) / Simple Moon Phase / Google Earth / Maps / Voice Search / Sound Hound ( similar to Shazam ) / Buildings / Convertor Pad / Locations / Trip Advisor / Dictionary / Barcode Scanner / Food Hygiene ( very useful if you eat out a lot or like take-aways ) / Compass / Bubble ( its a spirit level ) / Several camera apps / BBC News / The Guardian / Daily Mail / Sky Sports News / Sky Sports Score Centre / Flashlight / Skype / Facebook / Gmail / Calendar / You Tube/ Battery Doctor / Yell.com / Wi-Fi Finder /

And most importantly....AVG Antivirus.

All of the above are free apps, and while I tend to use just 5 or 6 of them regularly, they have all proved useful at some time or another. I have quite a few others stored as widgets, but not on my main screens. Not that I really understand the difference between an App and a Widget !!

I have AVG antivirus too - that was the first app I downloaded when I got my phone.
