It's hard to deny that the iPhone is a great gadget. But also the iPhone is obviously a temptation. I bet that $1.99 apps can add up. And, like pretty much anything, it seems to me that the iPhone can be used to aid or to hinder communicating with people.
I am not going to go into any kind of deep reflection on the pros and cons of owning an iPhone. So far, I've mostly liked having it. A few times I have thought it too much of a distraction. For what it is worth, here's my favorite iPhone things to date:
The Essentials: Pictures (I've liked having the camera available), Gmail, Facebook, Tweetie 2, Flickr, Dropbox
Really Like: Logos Bible (free version), GuitarToolkit, Surf Report, 2010 World Factbook, Wikipedia Mobile
Fun Games: Ragdoll Blaster (love physics games!), ... from ustwo, Glaurung Chess
Dangerous: 5-0 Radio (handy to have, not to listen to all day), Doodle Jump (which I didn't put on my iPhone cause I've played it on my wife's iPod - way too addictive)
Anyway, curious about your thoughts on iPhones (or Nexus Ones). Handy tool? Distracting menace? Favorite apps? Horror stories?
