Great portable go
I recently joined a go club at my university, and being able to sit around afterwards and play with another member after everything's been picked up is great. I have goban for Mac, and must say that the system for placing the stones on goban for iPhone is much better than other apps. The lack of an AI is a tad disappointing, but that's what I have the club for.
Useful free iPhone go board
I was looking around for an app that just implements a go board. For some reason all the other go apps were aimed at providing a computer opponent and didn't offer the basic feature of using the computer as a game board for two players! This does it nicely.
