>> Welcome to CNET Top 5, where each time we meet we count down another juicy CNET list. I'm Tom Merritt. The iPhone 3G has been out for awhile now. We're going up to the App Store to be filled some pretty excellent software. Now there's a lot of good niche apps for certain services, but what are the best overall? Here are our thoughts on the Top 5 iPhone Apps. At number 5, Motion X Poker. This is a diced poker game and it's addictive. CNET Downloads' Jason Parker can't say enough nice things about it. The app is $4.99 -- 5 bucks pretty much or you can get the more basic Motion X dice, no poker for free. Coming in at number 4, Pandora, by far the most popular and widely acclaimed streaming music app, like it's website forefather, the app lets you build the music channel around your taste. Best of all, it's free. Up to number 3, Koi Pond. I'll be honest. I was considering this for worst apps until Josh Lowenson of CNET's Webware convinced me of its beautiful soothing wonderfulness. Hello pretty fish. For 99 cents in the pond port. Sliding in at number 2, Wurdle. The iTunes Podcasting team of all people introduced me to this little digital version of Boggle. It's just finding words and comparing scores and it's so darn addictive and the first one isn't even free. It's a buck ninety-nine. Before we get to number 1, let's look at the rest of the top ten best iPhone apps. The mode is awesome, but ask yourself, do you use it? Alright, let's get to our number one, the best iPhone app in the whole store. At number 1, it's Shazam. Hold your phone app to any sound source, radio, stereo, etcetera, it will identify the song that's playing. I have never had it failed to identify recorded music -- most impressive and absolutely free. That's it for this edition of CNET Top 5. Disagree with our choices? We'd be disappointed if you didn't.
