    I must admit I'm a compulsive app buyer, having purchased about 300 or 400 apps in the past two years (nearly all of which are games). Some of my all-time favourites with prices (they're not listed in any particular order):

    Plants Vs Zombies (£1.79) - probably one of the best executed games on the iOS platform, utterly charming and engaging - this is a cut above the rest

    Angry Birds (£0.59) - the champion of all games when it comes to sales, this is a lovely timewaster that will keep you going back for more; the originial is better than the Halloween edition

    Mr.Aahh!! (FREE) - this was a paid app for years until this month, I cannot recommend it enough. So simple yet addictive

    Charadium (FREE) - this is being phased out by We Doodle but Charadium is so much better; my friends and I used to host a multiplayer game every afternoon last year, hours of endless fun. Alas, the paid ad-free version is gone from the app store

    Subway Shuffle (£1.19) - arguably one of the most challenging and fun puzzle games on the iOS platform (if not ever!), you can try the Lite version first to see if this is your thing - no one has ever completed the last level in the optimal solution; it's that difficult

    Snail Mail (£1.19) - undoubtedly the most fun racing game as you're a snail instead of a car, excellent intuitive controls too

    Solipskier (£1.79) - this has become another obsession of mine, it's a simple port of the free Flash game (Google it to play online on your PC) but the touch controls really take the game to whole new levels of fun; I can't get enough of this one

    Rolando (£1.79) - the first great game on the iPhone, this was a legend back in the early days and still loads of fun

    Rage HD (£1.19) - purely for the awe-inspiring graphics, this is a game to try (the non-HD version is 59p if you don't have an iPhone4/iPod Touch 4G or just don't care about graphics)

    Peggle (£1.79) - again, a beautifully simple port of the original PC game, this will undoubtedly make you smile when the music plays at the end of the level

    N.O.V.A. (£2.99) - I didn't play this very much until the update for retina graphics and gyroscope support, and it looks gorgeous and plays incredibly well as the gyroscopic control adds a whole new level of gameplay

    Sally's Salon (£0.59) - there's no shortage of time management apps but this is a great one and cheap

    Flight Control (£0.59) - arguably the first app store 'superstar' that dominated the charts for a long time, this is still an incredible game of strategy and control

    Cut The Rope (£0.59) - a fun, Angry Birds-esque game that recently hit the app store, definitely worth buying

    Doodle Jump (£0.59) - how could I not mention this one? The replayability factor here is definitely its USP

    Cube Runner (FREE) - this was one of the first games on the app store and is technically very basic, but so enjoyable and free, so why not

    i actually have all of those games apart from a few. doodle jump never gets old, flight control is timeless (i bought it centuries ago), and i completed rage hd within an hour of getting it. i was never a big fan of angry birds though, and i have cut the rope on my phone but havent really got into it yet. you obviously like puzzle games!

    have you tried need for speed hot pursuit yet? it really is good. i would also highly recommend modern combat 2, dark nebula 2 and galaxy on fire 2; they really are excellent. also try zombie highway and reckless racing. you wont be let down!

    DN2 and GoF2 are really good, especially Nebula. I gotta say MC2 fell short of my expectations in terms of gameplay.

    I haven't bought NfS Hot Pursuit yet cos I've bought about a dozen games in thanksgiving sales so I'm still playing them for now. I'm LOVING the update EA released for Need for Speed Shift today though, giving it jizztastic retina graphics.

    Have you bought the new(ish) Sonic 4 game? It was pretty well-made.

    I dont like angry birds too - i reckon it appeals to the masses cos its really easy and involves no strategy - its just flicking a bird thing

    CUT THE ROPE IS AMAZING - play it, you'll love it

    I like WorldCard Mobile app for business cards management. I can scan all my business cards and organize the details within sometime. It's avoid me to typing contacts one by one into my iPhone contacts.

      IMDB app. I torture myself during movies about who's been in what, so I can check their filmography using the app. It's real helpful
