Every week a few of us from team TiPb, bloggers and forum crew alike, will bring you our current favorite, funnest, most useful App Store apps, WebApps, jailbreak apps, even the occasional accessory, web site, or desktop app if the mood strikes us. As long as they're iPhone (or iPod touch) related, they're fair game.

So who's on deck this week and what are our picks? Find out after the break!

Chad's Pick: iPhone 3G S

The iPhone 3GS is my pick for the week! Though the outside may seem old, it is "all new" on the inside! Look for my post about what I specifically like about this model of iPhone, till then! [$199/$299 on subsidy - Apple link]

[Easy out! - Ed]

Chris' Pick: iPhone 3G S

Is there anyone who wouldn't pick the iPhone 3GS as the pick of the pick?

[Apparently not! - Ed]

James' Pick: Mophie Juice Pack Air

As with most of us TiPBers, I use my iPhone for everything, which causes the battery to drain by noon. Enter the Juice Pack Air. I am able to recharge the battery in the go so I can still check the latest news from TiPB. A must for the heavy iPhone users out there!

[Let me guess, for the iPhone 3G S?! TiPb's iPhone Store actually carries Mophie products for ALL iPhone models, b'okay? - Ed]

Leanna's Pick: The Sims 3

The Sims 3 on iPhone 3GS - I have always been a fan of The Sims and was disappointed when it didn't meet my expectations on iPhone 3G because of lag and crashes. On iPhone 3GS, however, The Sims 3 is a great game and I have yet to experience any performance issues. I now control my sim (named affectionately after my dear husband) with smooth scrolling, quick load times, and zero lag thanks to iPhone 3GS! [$9.99 - iTunes link]

Matt's Pick: TxtDrop

TxtDrop is a web-app that allows you to send text messages to anyone's cell phone (it also supports international users; however, it is not an iPhone web-app). I was initially concerned about privacy, but after reading their Private Policy (and viewing other trust-website-lookups), it look safe. If you are worried about getting spammed you can add your phone number to their block call list. I thought this was a nice as I have never found a "truly" free text messaging as some of the apps that do this still cost to purchase them [Free- Web link]

Rene's Pick: BeeJiveIM 3.0

I was worried when I tried some beta Push Notification apps. The alerts themselves were great, but the apps took a long time to load, login to their own servers, and fetch the original data. BeeJiveIM 3.0 helped assuage those worries. It's quick -- on the iPhone 3G thank you very much! -- and when you add BeeJiveIM's already great functionality with iPhone 3.0 push convenience... swoon

Apple, what's taking so long to approve this?!
