I have an iPhone 5 and love it. It’s my favorite possession. I bought my first smartphone (iPhone 3GS) in February 2010. I created this page to showcase my favorite iPhone apps. This page is a little outdated. I made it back in the 2010 era and over time I have updated some of my app picks to coincide with the times, but overall, this page hasn’t changed much.
All of the apps I have listed work on both the phone and the iPod Touch (except for a the GPS-specific apps.) The apps below are all third-party apps. I do make plenty of use of the apps that are bundled in iOS. I use Messages, Calendar, and Maps the most, but also others as well.
I’d like to toss out the following thought on paid apps: A few people I know who have iPhones are reluctant to spend 99¢ or $1.99 for an app. Too many people refuse to pay for apps and only use the free apps, or the lite version of a paid app. That grates on my nerves. If you’re willing to shell out the money for an iPhone and the contract for voice and data service to that phone, you can shell out a few bucks for some quality content. Most of my favorite apps are not free, and I make no apologies for that.
The app links below direct to AppShopper.com. It is a great website with descriptions and detailed information about each app. From there, you’ll find a link to each app on the iTunes App Store if you so desire.
