Apple iPhone Enables Independent Software Success

With all the hubbub over Apple's iPhone 3G, it keeps you thinking of how big they must be getting. And add to that fact, the minor backlash against the phone and/or company and it becomes east to forget how many small, independent developers wildly thrive and help make the Macintosh platform so great. Same is now true about the iPhone! I have an old-model iPhone. No fancy 3G here, just your plain old revolutionary phone, web, iPod combo. What has me so excited is the App Store (which Apple released the same day and the new phone)! This is the most exciting new phone feature in my opinion, and all iPhone owners have access! From just about anywhere you get service, you can now download cheap and free utilities for your phone that do everything from baseball scores to restaurant ideas to blog publishing (yes, I am posting this from my phone). Some of my favorites include Twitterriffic [app store], Tipulator [app store], Urban spoon [app store], Comic Touch [app store], Aurora Feint [app store], Dizzy Bee [app store], andWordPress [app store]. And so I pose the question to you, which (independent) iPhone apps are your favorites?
