I'm going to suggest taking the free Ipod classes from the Apple store - assuming there is one in your area.

Apps...hmm, I like the level, some of the free games...not sure why but can't think of much else right now.

Anyway...go online and do some searches!!

Stahl's Psychopharmacology perhaps?

As far as games I like: Topple, Dr. Awesome, Trism

Also Air sharing is neat (allows you to put txt, html files on your ipod that you can access on it)

Welcome to the Ipod Touch club! I love mine. The visual user interface is great for browsing through music albums and podcast lists (including yours, of course!)

But I admit that it was a bit tricky to figure out how to turn it on at first--I got my almost two years ago, and I can still remember a certain amount of frustration with that. It's hard to describe, but once you get the hang of turning it on, the rest of it is a snap. The friendly people at the Apple Store should be able to help you.

Can't turn your itouch on? There's an ap for that... ;)

ePocrates, of course.
Major League Baseball, the free version and I don;t even get that much into BB.
Whatever online banking app your bank uses
I bought iChart but have not gotten in the groove yet
Grocery Quiz, a techie shopping list.

Thanks everyone.
MWAK: Why not? Why is Illinois even a sidebar subject choise? Roy does the sidebar.

Hmm... I'm not sure which apps would be most useful for psychiatry, but I I'm starting my clinical rotations in a couple of weeks, and the programs I like (for now) are Epocrates Essentials, Skyscape, an eponyms program, and Diagnosaurus. The last two are probably geared more toward students.

I also have a twitter app called twitterfon that seems to work pretty well. Free games are fun for a while, but it's easy to beat them quickly... and then they're useless unless you pay for the full version. I agree with crazypsychmajor - Topple is fun. But beware - games drain your battery quickly.

I love my iTouch. I'm looking for medical lecture podcasts that I can listen to as I commute to and from my rotations - we're talking 3 hours of driving daily, and I might as well make good use of the time, so I'd love to hear suggestions from anyone who happens to read this.

PS - I'm SHOCKED that Roy actually posted. How long had it been? ;)

With the Blackberry, there's a GPS app that will let you locate/disable/partially control your phone via the internet. The company will also help you track it down.

If there is something similar for iPhones, I would suggest it, because my friend had to pay $700 to replace his outside of a contract (and had someone steal the new one a week later...rough!!).

Enjoy your stay at Apple's iTax Club. Hang on tight.
