Most Useful iPhone Apps

Updated on March 2, 2011

I consider myself a fairly new iphone user. (Not new to Apple though, I had a super old Macintosh computer back when the apple icon was rainbow-colored!) I just got my first iphone 4 back in September of 2010. The main reason I purchased an iPhone though, was for the convenience and utility. Now that I've used the phone for several months, I realize that I CANNOT LIVE without this phone. As a small online business owner, this little device contains my entire business as well as my entire life! Because I use it for practical purposes more so than for looks, I wanted to make sure I had the best apps to make my life even more convenient!

So I began to search around for the best, most useful iphone apps!

Note: I personally have and use every one of the apps seen here. I have not been paid to advertise any of these apps. These are my personal opinions.

I know I said I bought it to be practical, but I still wanted it to look cute!
