4.Apple Reader
If you want RSS feeds right into your iPhone, Apple’s got the right app for you. Just point your browser to any RSS feed (like this) and you’ll get all the info downloaded in a jiffy into your RSS reader. But the problem seems to be in remembering the locations/url of the feeds, but again you have your Favourites list in there to help you.

5. iZoho
The iPhone as you all know by now, doesn't have an in-build app to do document editing. So installing the iZoho is the right choice. Zoho is one of the best office suites on the web and is a competitor to Google Docs. It is also being used by more businesses everyday. Docs/spreadsheets/presentations on iPhone - the only solution seems to be iZoho.

6. Pedometer
Pedometer is a very simple app that makes best use of the accelerometers of your iPhone/iPod Touch and churns that data with complex mathematical algorithms (using US Army calculations) to calculate the steps you take whether you're walking, jogging or running. Pedometer will also calculate the number of calories you have burnt in a day. It uses a simple interface which has been carefully designed and colored in order for the user to understand it at a glance during motion. Now do you need a costly Garmin?

  3. Hi! Apple approved today (04/07) the OrkUp app - a photo uploader for Orkut. I know that India, just like Brazil and USA, is a big fan o Orkut. So just take a look and I'm pretty sure you will want to add OrkUp to this list. ;) Regards!
