iphone apps that look cool

Well, the new iphone app store is on-line, and I am browsing it. I don't have an iPhone yet, but the app store is the most exciting part of the new phone. So far, some of the most interesting ones to pop-up are:

- Melodis. search for music. in particular by singing a tune, or holding the iphone up to a speaker playing the song. Shazam does this too.

- Sound Machine. funny and simple sound effects machine. applause, laughter, zoom away. great example of super simple ap

- A bunch of instrument tuners that work from the microphone

- A full drum kit. predictable, but I'm still psyched for that.

- Nearpic. shows you pictures from panaramio that were taken near where you are standing.

- Signal Scope. A realtime oscilloscope to take input from either microphone or accelerometers. nice. very nice. Same company also makes a signal generator. This is the kind of stuff I want to be seeing more of.

Thanks for the comments - I am the developer for Drummer and Sound Machine. They were a lot of fun to create and I get a huge kick out of the smiles I get when people do use the apps. So much of what is on the store has a "feel good" approach. Now about that iBeer app... :)
