My 30+ favorite iPhone apps (this week :-)

Apple's iPhone 3G

Air Sharing: Enables you to use wifi to copy files from your computer onto your iPhone.

AirMe: Using this app, you can shoot photos & upload to Flickr with additional data embedded into tags (e.g., location, weather). Here’s an example.

AP Mobile News Network: Great news app.

Bloomberg: Excellent stock news app. Think of it like the iPhone Stocks app on steroids.

Camerabag: Apply cool film effects to your photos. Choose from Helga, 1974, Lolo, Cinema, and 1962. (You can see a sample photo with 1962 effect applied here.)

Crosswords: Robust crossword app with ability to download a variety of free puzzles.

Equivalence: Calculator with conversion functionality. Very handy!  

Fizz Weather: Excellent weather app that includes radar, 2-day & 5-day forecast, etc.

Flickr: This is actually Flickr’s web app (not an app store download). http://m.flickr.com

i.TV: New (and very well done) app that downloads your local movie and TV listings.

iChillout: Relaxation sounds with timer.

iGas: Gas prices for nearby stations.

iZen Garden: Sand garden with relaxing music.

Kiwi: Wikipedia-type app.

Koi Pond: Beautiful koi fish pond with relaxing music (not practical by any means, but very elegant).

Last.fm: Another radio app. Similar to Pandora Radio, but Last.fm tracks tend to be less mainstream.

Meditator: Meditation app (timer & meditation sounds).

MyDelicious: Lists your delicious bookmarks.

Newsstand: Very cool RSS reader that displays feeds as magazines on rack.

Pandora Radio: My favorite radio app. I love Pandora’s Spa radio.

Photogene: Excellent photo editing app.

ReMovem (free): Basic but fun game.

Solebon Solitaire: Solitaire game suite.

Stanza: Excellent ebook reader.

ToDo: To Do app that syncs with your online ToodleDo or Remember the Milk account.

Twittelator Pro: Twitter app (can view by replies, all friends, everyone, search, etc).

WhitePages Mobile: Includes business search, people search, and reverse phone directory.

WordBook: Dictionary

WordPress: Great for publishing to one’s WordPress blog while on the go.

WriteRoom: I use it to create notes to myself. More robust and elegant than the default notes app.

WunderRadio: Excellent radio app – lots of radio stations. (I use WunderRadio to listen to CNN-TV on my phone.)

One response to “My 30+ favorite iPhone apps (this week :-)

  1. Nice list.

    Don’t have an iPhone myself, but am interested (like every other dev on the planet) in developing for it.

    I like the idea of the Koi (and other relaxing apps) app. Totally left field.
