I just got an iPhone 4....

Postposted on Sun Nov 07, 2010 10:11 am

And I need some advice concerning apps. I have already downloaded Twitter, RedLaser, and ProPublica.

What free apps from the App Store do you recommend? Paid apps are OK too, but I would also like to see a free alternative.

Heavy is good, heavy is reliable. If it doesn't work, you can always hit them with it.

Dizik, thanks. Only problem is is that I would need a Mac for any of those apps. I am looking for iPhone apps.

Hmm, just about all the free apps I have on my phone are associated with some web service or other:
Facebook
Netflix
Hulu
Evernote
Pandora
Amazon Kindle

Oh, one you should download is SoundHound. Music recognition on your phone is AWESOME.

I have MyDocuments2Go, which lets me read, edit, and save Office documents. It costs $15, but if you use Office docs or Google Docs on the go, it's worth it.

Here's my must have list. The non-free ones are starred:

*Due - Great reminder app
*Reeder - The best RSS reader on a mobile device. Period.
RDP Free - If you do any remote desktop stuff...
Consume - A way to check your data consumption with respect to your cell phone plan.
*Skyfire - flash videos on the iPhone. Great for those few sites that aren't using HTML 5 video yet.
Flixster - Great for movie showtimes and tickets
Yelp - THE restaurant finder
Google Earth - Google Earth.
Mixology - A great little app for discovering cocktails. Awesome party app IMO
*Tune In Radio - Internet radio. Can also record those radio streams.
*FTPOnTheGo - Powerful FTP Client
PS Express - Photoshop mini
WallpapersHD - Great for iP4 wallpapers
ClearTune - A guitar tuner... Who knows...
Epic Citadel - A great look at the future of 3D iPhone gaming.
