In this question I received two different recommendations for iPhone specific apps to assist with Dominion setups. My group uses a third (non iPhone specific).
Which is the best, and why?
Please, only one app per answer, thanks!

Zack Hiwiller's Dominion Card Randomizer is nice. It works fine on laptops and mobile devices, is free, has card images, and has some nice options.
Downside: requires internet connection.
Dominion Shuffle for Android
I'd have to go back and use iDominion some more to compare the two, but this is the best option I've found for Android users.
Dominion Kingdom Deck for iPhone, free!
From the iTunes description:
offers an optional structured randomization mode. In this mode, it guarantees that there is at least 1 card each of 2 cost, 3 cost, 4 cost and 5 cost.
All current cards for Dominion, Intrigue, Seaside, Alchemy and Prosperity as well as the promo cards Black Market, Envoy and Stash are included as starting data. All sets can be turned on and off to match your playing situation.
Don't like a card in the list? Swipe the row and replace it with a new one.
Have a custom set? Add it in with the built-in set editor.
Had a particularly interesting mix of cards? Save the list and recall it later.
EDIT: iDominion has not been updated for several sets - it lacks Cornucopia and Hinterlands
Similar to iDominion - was the first Dominion related app on the App Store.
This is a great (the best, far and away, IMO) offline randomizer with a TON of options. You'll love it. disclaimer: I wrote the app :) Get it here: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/gajlaijicbmdnbpdficpdlkhgajhgkkd
Not real sure why this recommendation keeps getting deleted. I'll try one more time and if it gets deleted this time I'll appeal to admin.
We've been pretty happy with WebMinion.
It has plenty of options for how to set the cards up and lets you selectively re-randomize any of them, which we use a lot in our games if something comes up that we've seen too much or nobody likes, but we don't want to scrap the whole set.
