    Is the most recent Facebook update (came out a week or two ago) buggy as hell for anyone else?

    in terms of notification messages... like it'll pop up and say i have 70
    new notifications... when i don't...

    is that what you mean?

    That's one of them. Also, normally when I have notifications it displays the notice along the bottom in that red strip, when I have the app opened. It isn't usually showing it anymore, but when it does, the notice won't go away. Even after I click the red strip and view my notifications it stays there (even after newer notifications have come in). I have to power off my phone and reboot it in order to have it refresh.

    Mine's been perfect since the last update.

    Try deleting and reinstalling it.

    Good call. Do you have an iPhone 4 (I do)? Although if you have OS 4, which I imagine you do, I guess it makes no difference?

    Wow, I really appreciated this. I would never have spent the money without this recommendation. We have two iphones and an ipod that can use it so it's not really "expensive" once we get the app. I've really been enjoying it and tonight I was playing with my daughter. Thanks!

    What does the livestrong app do?

    The game is essentially an online version of Pictionary. Each player in the round must draw a picture using the touch-screen, and the other players must figure out what the picture is from a group of multi-choice answers.

    It sounds simple in concept, but I swear to you, it is seriously the most addictive game on the entire App Store that i have ever played, period.

    Tango. 3G video chat. It works as it should - simple and quick. Makes traditional phone calls feel archaic.

    Facebook. This is an essential app from the get-go, and it's been steadily evolving—like the site—for the last year. Version 3.0 was a total refresh, and supports nearly every one of Facebook's sprawling features, sometimes better than the site itself.

    Yelp. Yelp is built on the premise that people really, really love to review things, and that this bizarre impulse should be harnessed for good. With a massive database of food/drink/everything else reviews, easy navigation, inbuilt maps, and augmented reality.

    Flixster. One of the best movie applications available (also one of my favorites), and as an added bonus: it’s free!

    SoundHound. Social music search service, powered by a community-created database. Originally known as Midomi, the iPhone app isn’t as popular as Shazam - but that’s not to say it isn’t more effective. In contrast to Shazam, SoundHound can recognize tunes that are hummed or sung.

    RedLazer. Ever wondered if you can get a better deal on that cool item at Target? Scan the barcode and it searches the internet for the best deals.

    Netflix. TV in your pocket. Stream movies on your iPhone. I recommend using WiFi if you are a heavy internet user. an 89min movie takes about 300MB.

    Hipstamatic. Probably the most cleverly designed of the iPhone photography apps, and certainly among the most loved, Hipstamatic's recent upgrade brings all sorts of good stuff.

    Geocaching. This simply-named app offers real-time access to new information in the databases at geocaching.com. Search more than 800,000 worldwide geocaches, access their details, and let the hunt begin!

    Fruit Ninja. Such a simple concept it's impossible to put down. Just swipe your finger across the screen to slash the fruit. Zen Mode lasts a minute and a half - just long enough to sneak a game in line at the grocery store.

    Cut the Rope. My latest discovery! Charming graphics, simple gameplay that gets complexity steadily layered on top of it in a way that feels natural, almost without even feeling like it’s getting more difficult.

    Words With Friends. Similar to Scrabble, Words With Friends allows you to play against a random opponent or someone you know, all in real time.

    Facebook. This is an essential app from the get-go, and it's been steadily evolving—like the site—for the last year. Version 3.0 was a total refresh, and supports nearly every one of Facebook's sprawling features, sometimes better than the site itself. Don't use facebook as much as I used to, however, I do have and use the Farmville app lol

With a massive database of food/drink/everything else reviews, easy navigation, inbuilt maps, and augmented reality. Cool, I've used yelp online before but not on iphone, will try it out.

    Flixster. One of the best movie applications available (also one of my favorites), and as an added bonus: it’s free! Nice, too bad hulu is a paid for app...that's bs.

    SoundHound. Social music search service, powered by a community-created database.

I d/l'ed Shazam a long time ago and I've yet to put it to the test really. I thought I'd be using that shit left and right.

    RedLazer. Ever wondered if you can get a better deal on that cool item at Target? Scan the barcode and it searches the internet for the best deals. Check

    Netflix. TV in your pocket. Stream movies on your iPhone. I recommend using WiFi if you are a heavy internet user. an 89min movie takes about 300MB. Always use it around wifi, check.

    Hipstamatic. Probably the most cleverly designed of the iPhone photography apps, and certainly among the most loved, Hipstamatic's recent upgrade brings all sorts of good stuff. Curious about this.

    Geocaching. This simply-named app offers real-time access to new information in the databases at geocaching.com. Search more than 800,000 worldwide geocaches, access their details, and let the hunt begin! ?

    Fruit Ninja. Such a simple concept it's impossible to put down. Just swipe your finger across the screen to slash the fruit. Zen Mode lasts a minute and a half - just long enough to sneak a game in line at the grocery store.

    Cut the Rope. My latest discovery! Charming graphics, simple gameplay that gets complexity steadily layered on top of it in a way that feels natural, almost without even feeling like it’s getting more difficult.

    The games also sound fun, will try. Anyone use Pocket Frogs? I'm addicted to that!
