IMDb Trivia: IMDb's trivia app for the iPhone is a great time spender/waster for any TV and movie buff.

Pixel Ranger: Kotaku says that Pixel Ranger "feels as deep, engaging and modern as most Atari 2600 games, a CMYK-colored blend of Pitfall! meets Galaga, light on substance, heavy on visual charm." You play as a 8-bit cowboy with a shotgun shooting pixelated aliens. $1
Vulture Clickables: Vulture, New York Mag's excellent entertainment arm, has an iPhone app that's all about viral videos, songs, trailers, clips and more. It's like having access to what's hot in entertainment on your iPhone-it'll totally make you feel like you're in the know. The app isn't a reproduction of Vulture's content but rather gives access to videos or pictures or anything that has the most virility. Viralness? Viralnessility?
Slam Dunk King: It's silly stupid fun like Fruit Ninja but all sportified. Basketballs fly into the air and then you swipe those flying balls into the hoop. There are bombs that you have to swipe away from the hoop and combo points can be scored by being a master swiper. Free
Quora: The iPhone app uses location-based services to show questions in the area around your location, super useful when you're trying to learn about a new place (just moved, traveling, etc.).

Untappd: The concept: every time you drink a beer, you check it off in Untappd and it'll keep track of how often you've drank it, give you a few details on the beer, see who else is drinking it, let you take a picture and tag your location to it too. It's pretty much like Foursquare but strictly for beer drinkers. There's features like seeing a real time feed of what adult beverages other people are drinking and see what's the most popular micro and macro beers. And of course, you can share to Facebook, Twitter, and Foursquare too.
