    Here are some of my favorite everyday-use iTunes-purchased apps (excluding games) for the iPod...

    Todo (Biz / Productivity) - Appigo's Todo is one of the best task-based apps out there, items can be categorized into Focus (priority) or "Normal". Currently only able to sync with iCal on the Mac OS X but Outlook sync is currently under development. Also my most expensive iTunes purchase ever, cost me US$9.99 which amounts to around RM$36-plus!

    iXpenseit (Biz / Productivity)- a great expense tracker (with customizable fields and categories) that can generate reports on spending patterns based on a day up to a year or more!

    Remote (Leisure) - free Apple-designed app, enables the iPod to control the song selection and volume via WiFi signals.

    The Converter (Utility) - units conversion for various categories such as speed, area, length, temperature, time, and even technical ones like luminance and pressure + stress!

    Packing (Travel) - the app's name says it all, it's for tracking of stuff to be brought along for your travels, including clothing, essentials, and gadgets.

    Speaking English Dictionary (Utility) - a great dictionary with a huge glossary of words as well as a Google feature for translation of words and sentences. The best thing is the speaking feature, helps in pronounciation of unfamilar words!

    Facebook (Leisure) - iPod version of the every popular social networking site... 'Nuff said!

    MPG (Utility) - tracks the amount of fuel used for every pump-in of gasoline.

    Currencies (Travel) - displays the rates for hundreds of world currencies, including the fictional Linden Dollar used in Second Life. Rates are updated on user-set intervals but a WiFi connection is requred.

    Night Stand (Utility) - a beautiful digital clock for the touch, can be viewed either in Portrait or Landscape mode. Alarms can also be set and there are eight sounds to choose from.

    Flashlight (Leisure) - converts the screen of your iPod touch / iPhone to an emergency torch light.
