Top 10 I phone applications

The top 10 iPhone Apps list features the best iPhone applications that should be ready for your iPhone as soon as you pull the iPhone from its coveted black box. All iPhone Applications now available on iTunes.com! Shop Now!
1. Yelp

Yelp connects you to user reviews of restaurants, bars and other businesses — has some nifty features. Monocle lets you point your iPhone camera’s viewfinder in any direction for an “augmented reality” street-view version of nearby establishments. The Nearby feature shows you in both list and map format which restaurants are closest to you. Bookmarks lets you read up on the spots you want to check out, add them to your bookmark list and view their location too.

Mint makes budgeting fun with it’s slick interface and color coded graphs and charts. The iPhone app allows you to check in with your account on the go. You can see alerts (“You’ve spent too much on parking!”) and take a quick look at your budgetary goals, which may be just the thing to prevent that impulse buy, or remind you that $4 lattes add up really fast.
3. Gorillacam

Pretty much from nowhere, Gorillacam arrived in December 2009 from the creators of the Gorillapod tripods. It mashes together a slew of features to hugely improve an iPhone’s camera (timer, multi-shot, spirit-level, on-screen grid, ‘press anywhere’ capture), meaning you can bin a half-dozen standalone apps that offer similar things.
4. Facebook

The revised grid-based ‘home screens’ provide speedy access to regularly visited sections (news feed, notifications, and so on) and pages, and the experience is such that it in many ways beats the browser version.
5. Fring

Skip past expensive data charges for international calls with the free VoIP caller Fring (free). With it, you’ll be able to talk to friends using Skype, SIP, Windows Live Messenger (MSN), Google Talk, and ICQ’s protocols–as long as you have a strong Wi-Fi connection. In addition, you can skip over Palringo altogether and IM with Fring instead. It supports the chat services above, as well as AIM, Yahoo, and Twitter; but you’ll lose out on photo messages.
6. RunKeeper

The prospect of Nike+ but better and for free might sound unlikely, but that’s what RunKeeper Free provides. The app uses an iPhone’s GPS capabilities to track your jogging route, and provides mapping and details of pace and calories burned. Activities can be shared online, and treadmill runs can be entered manually.
7. Slacker Radio

When it comes to streaming Internet Radio, Slacker Radio is one of many comparable free music discovery apps that help you find cool songs to stream over the Internet. Slacker Radio gets you streaming songs from genre-based stations and from “stations” you create yourself around one or more artists.
8. Photoshop.com Mobile for iPhone
Photoshop.com Mobile for iPhone includes essentials like a cropper and rotater, color adjusters, and a handful of effects to change tone and tint, or apply thematic edits to give images a border or vintage feel. Apart from its no-cost price tag, the other major draw to Adobe’s Photoshop iPhone app is the one-button uploading of photos to a Photoshop.com account, as an alternative to saving edited photos on the phone. We also like being able to snap a photo using the tool and then upload it to Photoshop.com right away.
9. Bloomberg Mobile

Bring the power of the most trusted source for financial information to your iPhone, along with tools to help you analyze the world’s markets. Bloomberg offers news, stock quotes, company descriptions, market leaders/laggers, price charts, market trends analysis, and more. You are also able to create a customized list of stocks that you want to follow from markets around the world.

When it’s a movie-going experience you want, go straight to the free Movies app, populated by Flixster.com. You’ll find a logical tabbed interface where you can get movie showtimes, tickets, trailers, and maps to nearby theaters. Movie-watchers can hunt by title, theater, and rating. Flixster’s iPhone app offers a seamless, rich experience for finding reviews, upcoming titles, new DVD releases, and some artsy flicks. Integration with Netflix, Facebook, and Yelp helps make Movies the ultimate customized cinematic companion–at least for the U.S, U.K., and Canada.
