I set up my new Touch today (which means my spelling will be worse than normal).

Backed up, transferred content, then upgraded to iOS 7. It's certainly different, but I think it'll be fine once I turn off the new junk (like FaceTime). I'm coming from iOS 5.

I'm sure I will appreciate the camera, but that's not so much the OS.

I should soften that. I can see where FaceTime would be handy, but I'm glad you can shut it off.

I love FaceTime! And Skype! But I have friends in faraway places so these two are great for us.

Same here. The only way I can see my closest friends, is with Skype and FaceTime. Same with DW.

Kayak (travel)
RT Stocks (real-time market quotes)
eBay
Zillow
Trulia
Temple Run (great app to kill time on a plane)
WeatherBug
Soundhound (to identify songs)
