Anon iPhone 3GS Facebook

Andy, Staines T-Mobile G1 Locale (brilliant for automation), Google Listen (Great for listening to FrequencyCast), HulloMail (free voice mail in my gmail). And the FrequencyCast App of course!
John, Bristol iPhone Most useful app: pocket informant - Sync with Google Calendar, sync with toodledoo task list. Other apps I use - Sky+, Flixster, aroundme, pocket universe, redlaser, vouchercloud, docs2go
Darryn Reid Nokia N97 Favourite apps have to be mobbler for streaming music. Joukispot light allows me to use phone data plan with laptop. The built-in podcasting app to pick up your brilliant show, and phone torch when I can't see the light. Have to say I'm amazed you didn't mention ovi maps which comes with full voice navigation , can be used in offline mode (so no data charges) and most importantly, is free!
Jerry HTC Hero Apps: Beeb player, Dolphin browser, Listen (podcasts), Google Maps, iheart radio, Skype, Twittv, London City Tube, Barcode scanner... all free
Malcolm, Glasgow HTV620 Use phone almost purely for data use. Web, email and the odd text. Very rarely use voice calls. Also use the camera and upload photos to Facebook. Don't run apps on HTC620 as memory is too small to handle. Runs web and e-mail well so that's the important bit
Michael Google G1 Apps on my G1: barcode scanner, break the blocks, hangman, co-pilot, frequencycast, gps test, my tracks, phonalyzr and weatherbug
John Hawthorn, Eastwood Motorola Startac The greatest app is that the battery gets hot. Ideal for long fishing trips
Michael Johnson, Braintree iPhone 3GS I love the following apps: Brightkite, Gowalla, Facebook, LinkedIn, Fluther, Trillian, What'sApp, RoboForm, Slingplayer, Sky+, Shazam, ICE, Distant Stars, VisualMap, Aardvark, Starbucks, toptable, Flixster, iFlight UK, JamCam, POI-lite, HA Traffic, Kayak, Fuel Prices, ATM Hunter, ASBOrometer, Ship Finder, Plurk, Wakoopa, Kindle, NightCamera and Spoilers
Anon Nokia 5800 Calendar
Anon iPhone 3GS Listening to the FrequencyCast podcast on the train at the moment. One of the apps I use is BC Reader on the iPhone. Take a picture of a business card and it scans and adds to contacts
Anon Nokia E71 Browsing: Opera Mini; Maps: Google Maps ; Messaging: Fring
S L V Aaron iPhone Trapster is very good for mapping and speed camera locations. Also Facebook, voiceband, tweet deck, and ebuddy is a firm favourite. Oh, and bump, ivideo camera and camera+, ustream viewer and broadcaster
Peter Sturgeon, UCA Radio iPhone I use Wonder Radio most of the time for the iPhone. The biggest problem when you're tuning around is that some radio stations stream really low. Come on broadcasters - get with it!
Simon, Yorkshire Nokia E71 Google Maps, Mail from Exchange, Skype
