Read it three times a day and you'll know what happened outside your box

Engadget Mobile (p.s. Make a phonearena App already....)
Good mobile conversion of the site.

Alarm Clock Plus
It works, well. Only downer is it wont turn on the phone to alarm.

Chase Mobile Banking
Depositing checks from my phone, checking my balance.

Evernote
Great for taking down a note on the fly like during a project or team meeting.
