Get the most out of your iPhone with these 10 Essential iPhone Apps

  • Oct 27, 2009
  • by
 A list of general apps to help get the most out of your iPhone. I'll have more list focused on specific areas soon.
1
Facebook for iPhone
Facebook, in an app. Need i say more. I for one think the app is much better than the website.
2
Kindle App screen photo
If you read, this is a must have, you may not always carry a book with you but how many times have you left he house with out a phone? Exactly! With the kindle app you can take book anywhere and never miss a beat. Combine this with a new kindle and you are gonna be a happy reader.
See the full review, "A perfect companion for the Kindle or Kindle DX".
3
Mint.com (iPhone App)
Finance at your finger tips. All the great things about Mint.com on your iPhone, plus alerts and notifications. If you use mint, you gotta have the app.
4
Wikipanion
The best app to look up Wikipedia information on the go. It's a basic app that formats Wikipedia for the iPhone better than safari. if you use Wikipedia on a regular basis this is an app for you.
5
Sportacular
For the sports fan... A good free app with Facebook Connect capabilities. It gives scores, point spreads and allows you to comment on each game.
6
Tweetdeck App
A solid twitter app that's free. Be sure to sync your account to the desktop client to get the best experience.
7
Shazam
What's the name of this song? Ask Shazam. There are several other apps on the market, so far I have gotten the most hits using this app. When this comes in handy: Tuning into the radio midway through a set and only hearing part of a song, shopping, at a concert... Just think how much time you could have saved if you just new the song within a few seconds of hearing it.
8
Pandora icon
A good music app to discover music you already enjoy.
10
Fandango Movie Showtimes & Tickets (iPhone App)
Probably the best app for looking up showtimes. I have tried several other's and this one stuck around the longest. You can tell the app which theaters are your favorites, browse by movie, or search for what's nearby. I only go to the movies occasionally, but when I do I look up the movie time using the fandango app.

What did you think of this list?

Thanks for directing me to this. I've been hoping that someone would create a list of practical apps! I've got four of these already, but I'll be downloading the others (don't know about the sports one though :P). Thanks! :)

Thanks for the list! I don't have an iPhone, but most of these (or equivalent) are available for my Windows Mobile. For some reason, AT&T charges non-iPhone people for Pandora so I can't get that one and I've wanted it FOREVER.

:O You NEED to get Pandora! It's so friggin' cool looking!

I *would*, but I'm not going to pay a monthly fee for it. AT&T makes all non-iPhone users pay!!!
