Wolfenstein 3D Classic: Running around 8-bit halls blasting Nazis just doesn't get old, does it? If you loved Wolfenstein on your Packard Bell in 1991, you'll love it even more on your iPhone. It's $5, from iD.

New York Times 2.0: I've wanted to love the NYT app since it came out in the early days of the App Store, but now I actually kind of do.

It's the only GPS app that can cache significant chunks of open-source maps, and it also can upload geocaching tracks, geotag photos, and do just about everything else one would hope from an outdoor-centric GPS. There's a nearly cripple-free lite version for free and a $3 paid that adds a few additional functions.

New Yorker Animated Cartoons: If you just can't get enough of that high-falutin', single-cell New Yorker cartoon wit, they've gone and animated several and present a new one each day via a free app. If you ask me, putting these in motion kind of messes with the aesthetic, but hey, it's free.
