Happy 1st BD to Apple App Store. (What's your favourite App)

Well the Apple App store has hit its first birthday.

It now has over 50,000 Apps and over a billion downloads so I would say that qualifies as a success.

So now that its a year old and you've played with a lot of silly apps, now tell us your top apps and what they do. (please limit to five or six)

Remote is my favourite app, especially using the new iTunes DJ feature. Now, when I have a get-together, anyone of my friends with an iPhone or Touch can request a song from my library and it will seamlessly queue up next in the mix.
