Exactly what it says on the tin: I have an Iphone, I'm often bored and I think it would be cool to play some fun games while commuting.

Which games would you recommend?

Through The Ages is the gold standard imo. If the game appeals at all I can't recommend it enough.

+1. It's easily the best adaptation. Galaxy Trucker is done well too and I'm not even much of a fan of the game.

Through the Ages is by far the best I've played, although the more I play the more it grates on me.

Star Realms is fun and fast, and the expansions add a crazy amount of replayability.

Not a board game, but Dream Quest is all kinds of great (except for its art). Deck-building roguelike with a ton of challenge and replayability.

Eclipse
Pandemic
Cat Lady
Legends of Andor
Elder Sign
Burgle Bros.
Lords of Waterdeep
Catan
7 Wonders

And tons of more great ones, really. Depends what specific games you like.

Through the Ages is really well done, but I find it a bit much in terms of length and complexity for bite-sized phone play.

The two I've spent the most time with are unquestionably Galaxy Trucker and Jaipur. The former is particularly good: it even includes a points-based build variant that isn't in the tabletop version.

I'd be wary of sinking too much money into these. Much as I love board games I've always found that something is lost in the translation to digital. I tend to play adaptations less than I did dedicated digital games.

I saw Onitama on iOS and checked it out. I was happy with the gameplay and I'll probably pick up the physical game.

These recs are good for iOS, but usually on an iPad. The iPhone makes things much tougher.

Even you only ever played Dungeon Run on HEARTHSTONE, it's worth it. That's a PvE mode that comes bundled with the game, though you might have to play some regular games to unlock it? Not clear on how that part works. At free it might be worth checking out. Written by the creator of DREAMQUEST, also recommended.

REALLY BAD CHESS is good. All the Zach Gage games are good, actually.

RA and TIKAL should both be fine, and I can confirm TIGRIS & EUPHRATES is solid. TICKET TO RIDE too, but be warned that folks get pissy in online play if you block routes.

I will second NEUROSHIMA HEX too.

You mean people get upset if you actually play well?

I have lots of boardgame apps, but the only one I play with any regularity is Ticket to Ride, and that not very much. The whole app thing has never worked for me very well. Removing the other people around a table makes board games way less interesting to me. TTR at least is done in like 10 minutes, and it's simple enough that I never need to relearn the whole thing.
