My best apps and games so far

After having the iPod Touch for some months now I’ve installed hundreds of apps so far. Some of them have been great, some of them have been pure crap. On the whole I’ve had way more successes than failures when it comes to purchases.

Quite frankly most of the apps I get are either $0.99 or Free. A few have been $1.99 and only a slight few have been in the $4.99 range. And there has only been one which was more than that, and at $9.99 (WritePad Pro) it’s the worst app I’ve bought.

What’s funny is that many of the apps I grabbed at $0.99 are now double or triple that price. Sometimes jumping in early is a good thing. Plus at $0.99 I really can’t complain if the app doesn’t have everything I need. Offering up that small token encourages development.

So far, here are the best games and apps I have. I use or play these on a regular basis.

– Lose It!
– Gas Tycoon/2
– Audiobooks Premium
– Texas HoldEm
– Bookworm
– Wordsworth
– Dungeon Scroll
– Let’s Golf
– ZombieVille
– Inkvaders
– Mahjongg Artifacts 2
– Ebay/Paypal
– Amazon
– WordPress
– Dungeon Hunter
– Real Racing
– Swords & Poker
– Need for Speed – Undercover and Shift
– Classics2Go
– Card Shark Collection
– Worded
– Notes N More

Bu they’re not all gems. Here’s two apps I bought which I can’t stand to use. Shopper was only $0.99 but it used to be an excellent app. Now it’s bloated and greedy.

WritePad Pro was $9.99 and I can’t stand to use it.

– WritePad Pro – This app would be perfect if they would fix the editor. They added and extra bar which consumes nearly the entire screen in landscape mode. You only get one line of text and then the autocorrect covers up everything else.
– Shopper – Used to be such a great and easy to use app for making a quick list of items. Now it’s overly complicated and riddled with completely unnecessary extras. You pay for the app then have to pay again to turn off these great features.

So what great games or apps am I missing? Which titles do you keep coming back to over and over again?
