Best bowling app?

I know there is a handful out there but I'm looking for one that is closest to the wii version as possible (so obviously uses the accelerometer).

iBowl by SGN. It uses the accelerometer and it's free.

Action bowling. Can play like a wii if you want, or if your in a public place and want to be more discreet you can use the swipe method. Best pin physics of any of the bowling apps by far. And there's a lite version for you to check out.

Beyond that, try searching the forums. This topic has come up several times.

300 Bowl is my favorite bowling game. Although it is not like the Wii version.
It offers a 2D mode and a 3D mode.

Midnight Bowling is the most polished. Flick interface but you can tilt once to help steer the ball. Works very well.

There's also different modes like Story and Party that add depth.
