Hey Blaize with both have an iphone and a Blackberry.  I thought I was the only one in the world with both!  

MCDermk---Awesome Answers!!!   I didn't even know about the loyalty one.  I'm downloading that one later.  I'm sick of my keychain weighing more than my purse b/c of all the loyalty cards!

I had an i-Pod touch for years. After moving to an Android I quickly tried to replace my favorite apps.
my favorites on my i-Pod were:
Stanza
Grocery IQ
Pandora radio
Awesome note
Tweetdeck
Twitter for i-Phone
Google apps
dropbox
1 password

now that I have an Android phone I found all of the above apps and plenty more except for Stanza and of course i-Book but there are some pretty good replacements in the Android market and most of them are free or cost very little. I use Calibre for book management now too.Firefox has made Firefox 4 available for the Android phone too as of just a few days ago and I like it very much.
