The Best iPhone Apps

Updated on June 30, 2010

The iPhone has already taken over the cell phone world. Everyone either wants one or already has one. For someone who didn't know anything about the phone they would ask the obvious question: Why is it so popular? What makes it the most wanted phone it the world?

One of the main answers to this question is the applications. Apple has created a system where getting an iPhone app is just as easy as making a phone call; also its a system where new apps are added to the store daily. Simply - it makes your iPhone better and better as time progresses.

But what iPhone apps are the best?

With such a wide selection sometimes it's hard to know where to start. The top ten lists that the store and Apple articulate isn't nearly close enough to what the best apps are. Many times the best appliactions get lost in the mix, never to be truly found by the general public.

And this is where this list of the best iphone applications comes in handy.

All these applications are of the highest quality, as well as the highest customer satisfaction.

If you ever go over your budget, or anything suspicious is happening with your accounts, you will receive an email, text, and a real-time update letting you know.


Doodle Jump

Every list of the best iPhone applications needs to include at least one iPhone game. They are what help pass the time - or, perhaps the better term is, 'destress' us. Doodle Jump does just that.

The best iPhone application involving music. Hands down. This little application works like the popular website Pandora. You choose your favorite artists, and genres, and the application will create a playlist with you which is similar to your interests. As you progress through the list you can choose if you like or dislike the songs, and as you build up your interests your playlist will change. Eventually you'll have the perfect playlist. Incredible.



Price: Free

One of the most popular applications on the iPhone and deservingly so. What it does is take a quick recording of music that is playing, whether on the radio, in your friends car, on the bus, and tells you who the artists and what song it is. It's so simple, its genius. It even works in noisy bars.



Price:  $1.00

It's an amazing application and fits on this list of the best iPhone applications very easily.  What it does is this:  It located where you are in the world - preferably in the US right now - and tells you what foods can be grown organically for the time of year it is.  Also it uses Google Maps and determines where the best farms are in the area to buy organic food.  It helps you reduce your carbon footprint, save you money, and aid in a healthier lifestyle.  It's a must have.



Price: Free

The one app that fulfills all your social needs. This application combines all the major social messaging services into one (like MSN, Yahoo), as well as Facebook and Twitter. Need I say more?


There are dozens and dozens of more applications that could of made this list of the Best iPhone Apps, but these ten are the ten that - if you could only choose ten for your iPhone - would be the best fit. They cover a range of categories and fulfill a range of needs. Of course this only opinion.
