iPhone Multitasking Apps - Best iPhone 4 Apps

Updated on July 12, 2011

The iPhone 4, released today June 24th, 2010, has many new features that make it better than its predecessor. The most notable, and perhaps fan favorite, is the inclusion on multitasking on the iPhone. This means be able to have an app on in the background, while checking the news in one of your browsers. Multistasking on the iPhone is simple in nature and before long it will seem like second nature - like we always had it since the beginning. It will just make the iPhone, which is already one of the best gadgets of all time, ever more user-friendly.

As of right now there aren't many apps that fully support the iPhone's iOS 4 multitasking ability. The iPhone 4 apps that do, however, work great and full show the capabilities of this new generation of iPhone.

Here is a list of the iPhone apps that support the new iPhone 4 multitasking.



Price:  Free

WordPress for the iPhone and iPad is what it is.  It's the blogging platform made portable.  You can easily edit posts, make posts, edit comments, and many other of the programs feature.  What makes it great is that this iPhone 4 multitasking app allows you to switch between browsers and pictures while be connected to WordPress.  Blogging on the iPhone has never been easier. 



Price:  Free

LinkedIn is a social media connector.   This iPhone 4 app allows a user to simultaneously be connected to twitter, WordPress, or Facebook.   An example of how this app performs multitasking is that you can be writing a blog post in WordPress and be connected to Twitter at the same time.  Once you finish your post it will be instantly sent out on your Twitter.  It's more like automated multitasking.  This all makes LinkedIn is a great iPhone 4 application.  


XE Currency

Price:  Free

XE Currency is the must have app for currency exchange.  You can instantly be connected to over 180 countries, and be updated with all their changing currencies.  Lists can be created with this iPhone 4 app and your base currency can be changed with a simple switch.  For traveling, this thing is - literally - priceless.  Oh, and it works great for iPhone multitasking. 



Price:  Free

DropBox is new app that is very innovative.  This app, which has been optimized for the iOS 4, is one of the best multitasking apps for the iPhone 4.  It allows users to uploads files - such as photos, writing, and other personalized data - to the internet.  DropBox is great for someone heavily involved in business where one can multi task between writing a blog and uploading PDF files. 



Price: Free

This is probably one of the most notable multitasking apps for the iPhone 4. Why? Because AudioBooks allow you you listen to book while doing anything else on the iPhone. Listen to a book and go on Facebook. Listen to a book and surf the net. Listen to a book and write a review of WordPress. iOS4 optimization has never been better.



Price:  Free

EverNote is a great application for the iPhone.  It allows users to take notes, or voice notes, and keep them stored in a very organized manner.  The iPhone 4 multitasking powers are also very prominent in EverNote as it allows you to sync the app in many other programs and store your notes.   This includes WordPress, for example. 


Trip Journal

Price: 0.99

This is one of the coolest apps for the iPhone 4 (iOS4).  It allows users to completely track their vacation in numerous neat ways.  The coolest?  Well it comes in the form of multitasking.  The GPS works together with Trip Journal to track exactly where you go and when you went there.  You can also set up different way points of where you want to go. 



Price: Free

If anyone has the iPhone they probably already have the music app Pandora. The powerful music app is one of the most popular and rightly so. With the upgrade to iOS4, Pandora has made an upgrade as well - and, you guessed it, it comes in the form of multitasking. You can finally listen to music in the background. This means streaming your favorite music while browsing the new, blogging, or whatever. One of the best multitasking apps for the iPhone 4.



The fact is that we love social networking. It's the new revolution and there's no stopping it. What's the old adage? If you can't beat them, join them? Something like that.

Twitter for the iPhone is of one the best iPhone 4 apps. It's design is sleek and smooth, its interface incredibly easy to handle. It's also one of the best mulitasking apps. You can easily be busy using trip journal in one moment and then in the next instant be tweeting about your trip. It's as easy as a touch of the screen.

Tweeting as never been so convenient.

      One thing I don't like about dropbox, is that when you place anything in your dropbox, you lose all rights to the material. So don´t put anything there that you have produced yourself....

      But it's great for anything, non business, not paid for, not personal....well not a lot then, except original pirate material

      Great list of apps but I don't think they are the top apps. The drop box app is very useful, and the Pandora app is great. I use pandora all the time.

      Great list of apps for our nice iPhone 4's!

      I also just released a new application that is for the iPhone 4 only that takes advantage of a new technology for monitoring locations without high battery usage.

      LocationMinder on the iTunes App Store allows you to set simple location based reminders. The location can be set by searching for a business, by address, or manually on a map. This reminder is then delivered the next time you are near that area. The advantage is that it uses a new technology only in the iPhone 4 that continuously monitors your location without the high power of GPS. The application also does not need to be running to receive the reminder. I would love some feedback on the application. You can find it here at this link-

      The iphone is a great device that will advance in technology as the years go by. Soon, the iZigg Logo will be an icon on your iphone. Text "Your Name" to 90210 will soon be a household name. The 90210 short code is the most recognizable short code on the planet.
