So I've had a good amount of time using the ipod touch and I've come up with a solid little list of great applications I'd like to mention. Also, I highly underestimated how awesome this piece of technology is. It's fulfilling everything I had been wanting and I didn't have to spend an extra $30 on a monthly data plan to get it. The app store was a great idea.
Amazon Mobile: A free special app that is formatted for the touch and allows you to shop Amazon
Ambiance: A great little program with alot of different "white noise" type sounds, such as "campfire", "waves", etc. It was a couple bucks if I remember correctly. I turn on the campfire at work at I swear it makes me feel warmer at my desk.
Magic Kingdom Mini guide: For .99 a piece, you can get this one in addition to the other disney "worlds". It's basically an interactive map detailing attractions, restaurants (complete with links to allears.net for full menus), and restroom locations. We're headed to Disney in a few months, so these guides will be invaluable.
AroundMe: A free app that detects your location and instantly gives you a very nicely formatted kind of "yellow pages".
Bible: A free Bible! Works great.
Bubblewrap: (free)Pop bubblewrap for points (this is for my daughter, not me, it's for keeping her entertained in the event that we are waiting somewhere)
Ebay Mobile: It's free and presents you with a nicely formatted look at your "my ebay" page.
Facebook: Free again, great app.
Google Earth: Free, all the features of google earth.
Grocery IQ: This cost like 2-3 dollars if I remember, but it's a great grocery list app. Save lists, etc. It does a bunch of crap that I'm still discovering.
GW Helmet: A free Game and Watch game!
iDoodle2lite: Free, mainly for the little one to draw with her finger.
iFood Assistant by Kraft: This cost a couple of bucks but its a great recipe program that gives you ideas for meals.
Now Playing: A free program that auto detects your location and pops up with theaters, what's playing, what's new on dvd, and it all ties in with Rotten tomatoes. Very nice.
Quickpedia: A free wikipedia app specially designed for perusing wikipedia
Remote: A free program that allows me to control itunes on my computer straight from the touch anywhere in my house.
Units: A free units conversion app, tons of great uses for this (I've always been bad at this so this reference is good for me)
USA Today: A free news app, fantastic, this is one of my favorites.
The Weather Channel: A free weather app, lots of great info at the touch of a button.
WordJong: My most expensive app at $4.99 but I love WordJong on the DS and this is a grrreat game for having available to kill some time.
