The apps on my homescreen, left to right, top to bottom:
- Simplenote: I don’t use Simplenote because Gruber blogged about it. I’m sure that made them a lot of money, but I use it because it’s just a great, simple app. It’s a one-stop drop point for shopping lists, ideas for articles, ideas for presentations, to-do’s (which I later add to The Hit List)...
- Instapaper: Marco hit gold with his online service called Instapaper. I didn’t really like the first version of Instapaper’s iPhone app, but the latest one is great. It downloads all articles you add to Instapaper, and makes them available for reading offline. When I bump into an interesting article while I’m working, I just click the bookmarklet, and read it in the evening.
- Ego: Ego (created by Garrett Murray) is the best way to keep track of your sites and accounts on the iPhone. I use it to detect sudden spikes in traffic to my websites and to track the number of people subscribed to my RSS-feeds. Beautiful and simple, a killer combination for an iPhone app.
- Birdbrain: If you’re a Twitter-addict, you must buy Birdbrain. It gives you precise reports of who’s following and unfollowing you. Bonus: You see when Twitter attacks a spammer, resulting in 20 people who unfollow because their accounts have been suspended. Stellar interface by my favorite New-Zealander: Matthew Buchanan.
- Flightcontrol: I’m not going into this one, just buy the damn game!
- Rolando 2: Superfun game, much better than Rolando 1 (levels are better balanced, puzzles can be really mind boggling).
- Keymote: On the home screen for testing purposes, but will probable soon be banned to the second screen. It’s fun, it’s well-designed, but it’s actually pointless, unless you’re spending a lot of time in one app (watching a movie, giving a presentation in Keynote).
- W. Europe: Better known as "TomTom". Currently reviewing this for my blog. Crashed quite a lot, but it’s definitely a keeper.
The apps are grouped by category and how frequently they are used.
On screen 2 I have all my less-used apps, and screen 3 is for the default apps I don’t use (and can’t bloody hide/remove).
I own a 32Gb black iPhone, and don’t think I’ll ever buy a non-Apple mobile phone again.
