HearPlanet is a great app for NYC (available for iPhone and Android). We cover the whole world, but also have tons of premium audio content in NYC (just type #hearplanet in the search field to filter out other content channels)

Now we don't just have 'cougars' (40-something women who date younger men), we also have 'cheetahs', the thirty-something, 'younger cousins' of cougars who date men in their twenties, and (gasp) sometimes want to stay the night, because they are 'on the prowl'. Confused yet? There are also the 'pumas', women in their late twenties to early thirties who hit on men in their early twenties. best htc widlfire deals

SpareRoom is a great app for the iphone for anyone looking for a room to rent in New York. It takes out the hassle of the room or roommate finding experience, which can be equivalent to a full time job if you're searching classified sites. SpareRoom removes dodgy scams and spam listings before you have the chance to see them.

I like that new Locations:NYC app, there's almost too many places to check out. They just have Manhattan spots now but I hear they're working on the other boroughs

Thanks for this great list. I'd add Subway Gopher to the list. I just tried it. Works great. It would come handy when nothing else seem to work. This app covers all mode of transportation in all corner of NYC and without network connectivity.
