OffMaps is good; it's like the Google Maps app that's built in, only it uses OpenStreetMap, and can download and cache regions of maps for offline use.

As far as games go, Edge is the best aesthetic experience I've seen in the format (though may have been pulled from the App Store thanks to a trademark troll). The Rolando games are good too, though (at least with the original), I'd recommend playing them with the sound off.

Also of note: Google Earth, Tone Pad (a Tenori-On-style music toy), iRail (international railway timetable searching, at least in Europe), and Stanza (the e-book reader).
