What sites offer useful iPhone App listings & reviews?

The App store on the iPhone is so cluttered it's practically unbrowsable for me. Things are only a little bit better on the desktop version of iTunes. For the most part I've been finding cool applications as they are mentioned in some of the blogs I already read. Surely there are some websites out there that keep up a good overview of the best iPhone apps. What sites are you using to find good apps for the iPhone?

I've been going to ipod touch fans for app recs for my ipod touch, and I know there are many apps that work on both. iLounge seems to review iPhone apps on a weekly basis.

I subscribe to Pinch Media's RSS feed of recently-added free apps. It's not reviews, but it keeps me aware of what's fresh. Most are prima facia uninteresting, so it's a relatively quick skim whenever Apple approves new apps for the store (which it seems to do in fits and starts).

Slidetoplay.com is an iPhone/iPod Touch game review site that I'm only aware of because it currently sponsors YoungAmerican's Jordan Jesse Go! podcast. I'm not a phone-gamer, though, so I can't attest to the site's quality.

Have a look at appshopper.

I've actually found that Macworld has done a great job of reviewing apps on a regular basis.

For gaming, I read TouchArcade and FingerGaming.

Appshopper I find useful for a "what's new" view, but it's not a review source.

AppleiPhoneApps.com is in my reader, but a little too light on volume. They just announced that they're hiring, so perhaps the posting will pick up soon. They have a daily 'price drops' feature, which is nice.

FreshApps is another site that focuses on iphone apps.

I go to The iPhone Blog and Top iPhone News blogs daily. They often feature reviews on the latest and greatest apps.

For iPhone games, I also keep up to date with the iPhone page at IGN.

Have just been trying a few of these out - the Macworld reviews are the best so far. They're actually written by reviewers and not just descriptions submitted by the app programmer. Thanks, Remy.

The iPhone section of I Use This is pretty useful - you can filter it by popular apps, new apps that are causing a stir, &c.
