    I took all the apps I had on 1.1.4 and decided to see how much money it would cost, and how many were available on the App Store. Sorry for the font, I had to use a fixed width font for everything to line up correctly.

    If you find anything that is actually available but I didn't know it, or I got something else wrong feel free to post it!
    ==================================================

    My Findings:

    Available - 13 - 19%
    Similar Available - 16 - 22%
    Exact + Similars - 29 - 41%
    Cost to replace everything (Using similars also) - $80.85
    Apps I can do without - 17 - 23%
    ==================================================

    Touchpad
    MobileScrobbler
    LEDBanner

    I would make minor corrections to those three (those are just ones i noticed specifically)...

    there is remote, which controls your itunes (although it does not have all the features that touchpad does), but it is free... which touchpad wasn't even free...

    there is an official last.fm application now, which i would imagine is better than MobileScrobbler... although i havent used either lol... (free by the way)

    also, there is an app that i saw (cant remember the name)... something about "shout" or "iShout" or something... not exactly the same, but very similar to LEDBanner...

    Wow that was really hard to read. A simple Yes or No would make it a lot easier.
