Live ATC ($2.99)
One reason I love flying United Airlines is that you can listen to the air traffic control frequency while you're on the ground and cruising through the sky. Though you can't use Live ATC in the air (it requires an Internet connection) you can listen in while still in the airport. As such, you can hear when an inbound flight is on final approach and when your flight is ready for take-off (if there's a delay, you'll hear about it here, before they announce it in the cabin). Yes, I know it's really geeky, but it can be fun for the enthusiast.
