What APPS do you use regularly (not games)

What IOS applications do you use regularly on your iPad, iPhone or iPod (not including games or the default apps)?

For example, I often use:
- TouchArcade application.
- Testflight - For beta testing
- AppShopper
- Clear - To do list
- Air Video - Streaming vids from Mac to iPad.

What apps do you regularly find useful?

I regularly use...

NewsRack - Add lots of RSS feeds to this, very useful
ComicZeal - My favourite app, import comic .cbr or .pdf's to this to read. Love this app !

Dropbox - Can access so many of my files online, can then download them to use in some apps such as ComicZeal or iBooks

MyBookPlayer - Can add mp3's to this, great for audio books

iCatcher! - Use this for podcasts, download tons of shows to listen to in the car

I am not going to mention stock apps since that would be pretty silly so..

Notetaker HD <--best notetaking app in the App store [totally not subjective] PS, notability isn't that good for notetaking with a stylus.
https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B6j...U9hNE5xU3hwbHc <--An example of the type of notes I usually write out on Notetaker HD with my Adonit Jot Pro Stylus
Planetary <---awesome visual way of going through your music collection [Provided everything is properly tagged]
AudioMemos <--the iPad doesn't have voice memos!
AV Player HD <--- Only video player that can play Hi10p [Has been pulled from the App store]
Comic Zeal
XBMC( for jailbroken devices)
Jump RDP <---I use this quite often too ..Love how easy it is to manipulate the mouse
The Weather Channel
GoodReader for iPad <-- Best PDF reader with built in dropbox functionalities, smb drive sharing etc
Splashtop <--Best RDP app
Notes Plus <--an interesting notetaking app with handwriting recognition..inkstrokes arent as smooth and the zoom function isn't as intuitively utilized as Notetaker HD though
Noteshelf <---Another pretty looking notetaking app..too bad it doesn't have PDF import functionalities.
Display Recorder <---Records what is on your screen!
Manga BDR
Comikon (Free app for downloading chinese scanlated mangas)
Isle of Tunes <---Something cool
Air Display <---Using your iPad as a 2nd or 3rd monitor!
Flipboard <---A very pretty looking interface for going through rss feeds
Agenda <---I prefer this to the stock calender app for marking out important events/tasks
Evernote <---self explanatory
IM+ <---messenger app
TapAlarm <---A very pretty and functional alarm [The iPad doesn't have the stock clock app for iOS 5!]
Groove <---Metro styled 3rd party music player
Procreate <---- Best app for digital art

Yes..comiczeal is awesome..but it has to uncompress the cbz/cbr/zip/rar files to be able to read them. It is annoying to wait for it to do that when you are importing a large number of graphic novels etc. The nearest competitor Comic Glass is more functional but less pretty ..so I am definitely not switching over =p
