    Getting mine later today. Wondering what some must haves are. I'm sticking with AT&T-- not jailbreaking.

    Fox News? Bwahahah! That stuff is "news" about as much as it is "fair and balanced".

    If you aren't jailbreaking then there really aren't any apps you can install til the SDK comes out.

    Uhm, did I have to be specific and put 'web' before the apps? I figured it was a given since I mentioned I wasn't jailbreaking.

    well i have the LA times on mine as well, but i went off the assumption that not everybody would want the LA times as they dont live in LA

    An apps thread needs to cover all apps, both in web and native.... most especially since the majority of people give a damn less about non native apps.

    As far as an apps thread goes, now is a bad time. 1.1.3 and it's little "mobile" folder switch from the previous OS firmware has boned everydamnthing. It'll be a couple months before things get straight, and with the devs going over to the SDK and abandoning the "free shit" route it might be even longer than that.

    the apps you love so much from 1.0.2 through 1.1.2 aren't going to be worth saying "I like that one" because you won't be able to find the fugger anywhere as the sites are updating to 1.1.3 firmware or pulling the old stuff completely.
