I think it would be good, to also provide the links. I mainly use

Persian verb conjugator: http://www.jahanshiri.ir/pvc/en/

German-Persian dictionary: http://de.langenscheidt.com/deutsch-persisch/


A nice podcast: http://www.chaiandconversation.com/

Textbooks that I haven't used yet, but are suppossed to be good: 


Persian of Iran Today Vol. 1: http://www.laits.utexas.edu/persian_teaching_resources/Persian_of_Iran_Today.pdf

Persian of Iran Today Vol. 2: http://www.laits.utexas.edu/persian_teaching_resources/Persian_of_Iran_Today_Vol2.pdf

There are more resouces here:

sure , just add www....com:

www.vajehyab.com

www.farsilookup.com


Google translator is known.

Lonely planet's phrase book is only in paper and is cheap to buy , costs 10 euros.


About the other resources you mention:

Persian of Iran today is a nice resource but covers very few verb tenses and has not solution to exercises.

Chai and conversation is useful for spoken persian but not a comprehensive resource I would use daily . 

There are several other resources I use but the ones I mentioned in my first post I use every time I work with persian.

Especially for grammar I haven't come across a comprehensive resource yet. Some grammar resources are good at one thing and some at another thing. I am making my own grammar notes combining stuff I find in different places.

the magnificent 5 for learning persian I use every time:

* persian online verb conjugator

* vajehyab online dictionary for pronunciation

* farsilookup online dictionary for compound verbs

* Google translator for text processing and looking up meaning of and usage frequency of words 

* Lonely planet's persian phrase book
