1)Access to Insight -- suttas right in your pocket without any internet connection!!! FREE

2) Buddhism Library -- from the Sacred Texts website... various translated works from both Mahayana and Theravada schools, including all the Jatakas.

Unfortunately Buddhism library does not allow cutting and pasting of texts, so luckily I had bought SuttA Nipata, Udana, and Therigatha separately!
3) Heart Sutra in English, Sanskrit, Chinese!

4) Kill the Buddha-- ignore the name all ye Buddha lovers who would instead kiss the Buddha if we met Him on the road--- a beautiful Dhammapada, you can add notes, bookmarks-- and it looks gorgeous!

5) Menla rituals- nice Medicine Buddha Puja

6) Buddhapik -- nice thangkas

7) iDharma- was supposed to bean app where new suttas, sutras are to be inserted , so far very few have been added.
