Now, I’ll list all the iPhone apps I have paid for, and I’ll also explain why I have paid for them and what I’m using them for (they’re in no particular order):
Instapaper is an app that lets me read the blog post or the articles I am currently reading later. It saves what I am reading, and lets me read it when I am more focused and have more time. I can read it offline, and I can share the article by using Twitter. I use it all the time.
I have only used Keynote Remote once, but it really helped save my day. I was speaking and I wanted to do something extraordinay. I knew that I had to either use a mouse to get to the next slide, or click on a key on the keyboard. With Keynote Remote, I did everything with my iPhone. It was perfect, and very easy to use. I even saw all the slides on my iPhone.
I have been looking for a way to track my running for a while. I also wanted a way to get more motivated, and help me get out of the couch and start running more often than a few times a week. I found Runmeter, and it’s perfect (although it doesn’t really help me run more often). It tracks close to everything and it uses GPS. I can even send all the details of my runs to Twitter and Facebook (I don’t really see the point though). What I do is I publish the details to my calendar, hence I get an overview of how many times I have been running during the week/month (the length, the calories etc..).
NAVV GPS for Scandinavia
I needed a GPS for my car, I bought the one from NAVV. It was very cheap, and it works fairly well (probably not as good as the best ones, but it has been really helpful).

One of my friends told me about geocaching. I downloaded the free app first, tested it with my kids, and I was sold. Geocaching is the perfect way for a family to have fun outside. It’s a lot like treasure hunting. My kids can’t get enough of it, they ask me every single day, “please dad can we find a treasure today?” Just got to have this if you have kids.
I am using Disqus to manage the comments on my blogs. I love this system. When I discovered that they’ve made an application where I can manage all my comments (apply, delete, spam) and write replies from my phone, I just had to buy it. It’s awesome, and I highly recommend it, although I would also want a new feature where I can actually see the name of the blog post people are commenting on.
