Foodie iPhone Apps?

Do you have a favorite? So far, I like Food Network, but I'd like to expand that. :)
Seafood Watch is my favorite. I can look up almost any fish I've ever seen on a menu and find out if it is a sustainable choice. Epicurious is good too, primarily if you already have an account. Very handy if you are at the grocery store and forget the ingredients for a new recipe you want to try, or see an ingredient at the farmer's market that you've never used and want to search for some recipe ideas.
I have Drync Wine and Hello Vino, but never really use them. I guess I'm not sure what I want from a wine app, but whatever it is, I haven't found it yet. . . . ideas?
Honestly, my most frequently used "food" app is my tip calculator. ;)
I downloaded a bunch of food related apps (Food Network, Allrecipes, Urbanspoon, Jamie Olivier... etc) when I purchased my iphone. Six months later, the only app I still use is Yelp.
However, I really enjoy listening to podcasts - BBC Food Programme and The Splendid Table.
I have a few that I like. Among them Seafood Watch, which I use before I buy fish or before I order fish in a restaurant.
I have the Mark Bittman "How To Cook Everything Vegetarian" app and it's super handy. I browse for dinner ideas on my commute home.
