Top 5 Must Have iPhone 3G Apps via the App Store

Share:

The iPhone’s App Store has over 500 applications that are available to iPhone 3G users. There are lots of paid applications but there are a bunch that are free. Today we’re going to go over my Top 5 Must Have iPhone 3G Apps via the App Store! Let’s not waste time and get right into the list!

Top 5 Must Have iPhone 3G Apps via the App Store

1. Shazam – This free app is super cool and will make you “the man” at parties, and might even win over the ladies (or NOT!). Basically the program “listens” to any song and will identify the song name, artist, and album! I’ve tried the program in a car while people were chatting lightly and it was identifying songs on the radio with ease…SHAZAM!

2. Remote – This app is courtesy of your overlords at Apple. It’s a remote that will let your iPhone 3G control iTunes on your desktop/laptop wirelessly! It’s super neat and will make lazy people even lazier. I’m all for supporting the lazy movement and this app makes it super special.

It’s also super easy to use. Launch the program, add a library, enter a 4 digit passcode on your desktop/laptop and you’re good to go. You can add all the computers on your network. Time to have some fun and freak out your family/friends/roommates! Full control of iTunes with your iPhone 3G…awesome!

3. Twitterific – If you’re on Twitter, this is a must have app. Twitterific will let you post and respond to tweets. You can also tweet with pictures taken via the iPhone camera. This is the best Twitter app out there for the iPhone, and coupled with unlimited data you can sure have a lot of fun revealing your entire life to the world. Want to know what I’m doing through the day? Feel free to follow me on Twitter (creeeeppyy)!

4. Morocco (aka Reversi/Othello) – This classic game just never goes away and I can’t stop playing it. There are two apps available. One is named Othello and the other is Morocco. I like Morocco because it allows 2 player, allowing you to duke it out with a friend or family member. Tip: the corners are your friends!

5. iPint – For all you beer lovers out there, or the wannabe drinkers out there this app is for you. Created by the brewers of Carling beer in the UK, this app will let you have a “brewsky” when the real thing isn’t available. It takes advantage of the iPhone’s accelerometer and after the pint has been poured, it’ll empty as if you’re drinking the real thing. Now this is how you get some viral marketing via the iPhone! [insert Homer Simpson voice] MMMM…..beeeerrr….

Honorable mention: Light (it’s a light btw) and PhoneSaber (allows you Star Wars freaks to get your light saber fix on the iPhone).

These are some of my favorite free iPhone 3G apps via the App Store. I am sure they will change as new apps are being released everyday. What are some of your favorite free apps at the moment?

    I wouldn’t have exactly said these are must “have” apps. Maybe must try. Remote and Twiterrific are great apps, and they are must haves.

    iPint is good for maybe 5 minutes before it gets boring. Shazam is good and works maybe 50% of the time. Midomi is a similar app which works maybe 50% of that remaining time.

    I haven’t played Morocco so I can’t comment.

    The app listed which I’ve had the most fun with so far is the PhoneSaber, and the novelty of that app wore off pretty quick.

    Cheers,

    One I have just read about is Tuner, an internet radio app. don’t know if it will work with stations I want to listen to, but seems to fill a nice void of not being able to listen to radio.

    Ipint is fun for like 2 min’s and I could see the use for remote if you had itunes setup on a HTPC but because it won’t let you import divx or other formats (directly) it kind of looses that functionality to media center and other programs.

    I’m using midomi instead of shazam, it supports humming tunes and other stuff. Also it works pretty well. I’ll check out shazam though.

    iPhone Fan – it’s just called ‘reversi’! I bought it (not free, but cheap, I think it was 2 bucks) the day the app store opened, before the other two appeared, then felt kinda duped when I saw Morocco on the store a few days later. But I’ve gone back to reversi, the graphics are nicer and it plays a great game!

    I forgot to mention — Twinkle is a great twitter client. It’s free like Twitterific, and I prefer it! The gui is not so jerky and it has a nice ‘tweets near me’ feature which uses your location info.

  • Awesome! Thanks Jim. I used Twinkle on my first gen iPhone, but I’ve grown to love Twitterific more. 🙂

    @spiffiness – there’s a free VNC app called Mocha VNC Lite. a more fully featured version costs $5.99 on the AppStore. the lite version chops off the screen over a certain resolution – kinda annoying. I much prefer the old vnsea.app on pre-2.0 jailbroken phones, hopefully it will be updated for 2.0

    re: must-have apps – this one isn’t free but it’s only $4.99 and is lots of fun IMHO – it’s a dice game called Motion X Poker. there’s a video review of it on gizmodo, go take a look

    some other free apps I like: Urbanspoon (unique restaurant finder), 1Password (password vault), NetNewsWire (RSS reader), Moonlight Mahjong Lite (multi-touch aware tile game), Box Office (movie showtimes), Stanza (great ebook reader & online catalog), Instapaper (tool to mark webpages for later reading)
