Best Free iPhone/iPodTouch Apps?

Anybody who has the iPhone or iPod Touch (as I do), have any recommendations for good FREE apps from the iTunes Application Store?

Having a hard time sifting through them. You can also recommend really cheap apps (like under 5 bucks).

So far, I've got these free games:

Tap Tap Revolution
Aurora Feint
Tris (touchpad tetris)

As well as various other apps that bypass the browser (eBay, Facebook, Pandora, AOL Radio)

I used to have jailbreaked iPod Touch before the 2.0 software, but I'm giving 'legit' a try. So far i've found pretty much everything I used back in Jailbreak days except for a "wi-fi toggler" that lets you turn on/off wi-fi straight from the Home page without going through settings... and an easy to use text/html eBook reader.

Re: Best Free iPhone/iPodTouch Apps?

AIM - Free
AOL IM chat. Currently won't notify you of messages when app is closed, but that will change in Sept. and it will work more like the SMS app when it's closed.

AOL Radio - Free
Online CBS radio stations.

Simplify Media - Free (for now, will charge soon)
Best app ever! Stream your (non-DRM) music from iTunes to your iPod over the internet. I just turned my 16 GB iPhone into a 40 GB music device!

Remote - Free
Control iTunes over a Wi-fi network. (Just plays on the computer. Simplify Media streams it TO your iPod.)

Shazam - Free (for now)
Identifies music by listening to it (iPhone only, needs mic)

Koi Pond ($1)
Kind of simple and silly, but totally worth the dollar. Very relaxing and a fun way to play with the touch screen.

Galcon $10
Yes, it's a $10 game, but I've played this far, far more than the cheaper games I've bought. Terribly addictive and lots of fun.

Chopper $8
I can't suggest this as strongly as Galcon, but if you like helicopter shooting games, this delivers.

Speed - Free
Speedometer. Only accurate above 15 mph or so, (my own guesstimate) but kind of fun if you're riding with someone else and you like to backseat drive. (Needs iPhone 3G with the GPS.)

PapiJump - Free
IT WILL CONSUME YOUR LIFE. Don't download this if you value your time!

Cubes Lite - Free
Weird cube puzzle game. It's ok. Try it and see if you like it.

That Simplify Media software sounds pretty cool. I'm surprised Apple let it be released, actually.
