(Newser) – The best part about the iPhone 3G's debut, writes PC Magazine, is the new abundance of software for the handset. Most of the apps work on the original iPhone, too. The cream of the crop:

  • AIM: Should need no introduction, although it was a major omission from the original iPhone's slate.
  • Bejeweled 2: A popular time-waster gets a suitably beautiful iPhone port.

  • eReader: An eBook reader, well suited to the iPhone's large screen.
  • Etch A Sketch: Enjoy some grade-school nostalgia, using either mock-ups of the original's dials or a feature that allows you to finger-paint on the screen.
  • Pianist: A touch-screen mini keyboard, for the musician on the go.
  • Pandora Radio: Like the popular website, allows users to generate custom radio stations.
