David Prager: Scramble2 for the iPhone
Version 2.0 | Developed by Zynga | Free
The game is simple, in your playing space, letters are arranged in a grid as 4 or 5 across and 4 or 5 down. Your goal is to link as many words as possible within a 2 or 3 minute time period. Drag your fingers across letters or press on them sequentially to complete words. The longer the words you get, the more points you get. At the end of each round, you can see a list of every possible word you could have gotten. The total number of possible words is always displayed.
If you want to get competitive, and I know you do, not only can you play and pass the same grid to a friend right next to you, but you can challenge friends (or strangers) to play online and see their high scores through integration with Facebook Connect.
A definite DOWNLOAD if you are into word games.
Stephanie Chu: WhatTheFont for the iPhone
Version 1.1 | Developed by MyFonts | Free
Half novelty and half utility, this free app lets the type geeks out there identify fonts around town and on the street. It works by simply taking or loading in a photo, cropping your focus area, then defining letters. WhatTheFont then processes the photo and gives you a list of similar, but not exact matches of fonts.
Hopefully, you have decent lighting and a good angle since the app can be a little sensitive... but all in all, it's a fun, easy to use app that allows you to identify fonts to use later.

Patrick Norton: Sheep Launcher Free for the iPhone
Version 1.0.1 | Developed by Kronos Games | Free
If the ninety nine cent price for Sheep, Sheep Abduction, Zombies vs. Sheep or Sheep Launcher Plus! is too much to bear... try out Sheep Launcher Free! Kronos games combines a sheep, a WW 1 style flight helmet and your iPhones touch screen into a poke based time waster that distracted me from my undersized seat and total lack of legroom for at least half my last cross country frlight from SFO to EWR before I finally tore myself away.
