Common use of Angular JS?

I have just done the tutorial of Angular Js Dribbble. It was cool. But I am not sure when and where I will use Angular JS on my projects. Most of my projects are small - medium sized websites. Can someone please give me some samples of when to use Angular JS?

I'm using AngularJS in a couple of projects at the moment. It works best where you need to interact with a RESTful API, consuming data within an interface. It would suitable for an Admin area or a SPA (single page application) but generally not ideal for consumer facing website unless you need to interact with APIs as the core of the project. Personally I love it, it's got some great features and really fits nicely with my way of working (and my brain!).

One would be AngularJS Forms and you could also check out what was built with AngularJS on the official website. Be sure to check out the blog, too.
