10 iPhone Apps To Keep You Connected

Facebook for iPhone
My friends are no longer on AIM, so Facebook it is to keep connected.
Pandora icon
While the iPod is great and I have a ton of music, sometimes I want to hear something new. Pandora is great for introducing me to relevant music that suits my eclectic tastes in music ranging from rap to alternative rock. The recommendations are spot on and their service is cross platform.
Keeping up with industry news is critical to my business. Google Reader is my feed reader of choice, but I'm not a fan of their mobile web app. Reeder gives me everything I would use in Google Reader from my desktop and more social sharing options. Plus, it's a beauty to look at.
When speaking at conferences I tend to take a ton of photos right from my iPhone. I hate to leave them all on my iPhone and I like to share them with other attendees too. So FlickIt is my app of choice to get those pictures up on Flickr.
CNN (iPhone App)
I may not read newspapers, but that doesn't mean I don't read the news. I just like to get it in a different format. The CNN iPhone app is great for my news consumption.
I like to reminisce about the many cities I've traveled to and the places I've visited within those cities. Foursquare is a neat app for me to track my travels and also pick up some cool badges along the way.
When there's no free WiFi, or any WiFi, MyWi saves me every time. It's a tethering app for the iPhone so use it wisely.
Google Maps for iPod touch (iPhone App)
I'd get lost in all the cities I visit if it weren't for the Google Maps iPhone App. It also doubles as my GPS navigation system in my friend's cars (I don't own one yet). I use public transit in Atlanta and Google Maps provides up-to-date info on bus schedules, times, routes and more. I can plan just about any trip in 3 different ways with this app: driving, public transit, and walking.
Tap Tap 3
No iPhone is complete without a game and Tap Tap 3 is my favorite gaming app for the iPhone. Being a music addict it appeals to many of my interests and I rarely get bored with playing it.

What did you think of this list?

Fun to Read

I'm still kind of struggling with my adoption of FourSquare...I never really saw the purpose of it, but I think you'd brought up a really great point - logging your travels! Duh, why didn't I think of that?!

Also, "My friends are no longer on AIM, so Facebook it is to keep connected. " LOL, remember those days? Man, I love that FB shift!

Also, have you used the official Flickr app before? How does flickit compare? The main Flickr app is kinddddd offfff terrible.

Awesome list, Corvida!  I've already got some of these apps, but I really need to check out FlickIt (huge Flickr user here!) and Google Maps.  I never thought about checking out the latter app since the iPhone already comes preloaded with one, but you make it sound awesome, so I'll need to download that.  Thanks for sharing! :)
