Top 10 iPhone apps

Apps for iPhone have really changed the way we interact with the device. Without Apps, the iPhone is like a Lemonade without Lemon.

So here are 10 of our favorite apps which we highly recommend.

#10 – Flixster – Crazy about movies, want to get showtimes, watch trailers then this app is for you. Flixster is a great way to catch up with all your favorite movies. You could sign in via your Facebook account and rate movies and leave comments. You could post a review of a movie on your Facebook wall, check out the upcoming movies, browse movie by genre, get latest showtimes and movies playing near you. This app is totally unique.

#9 – Mini piano – Though this app isn’t loaded with features but it does what its best at – you guessed it ,playing the piano. You get a mini piano for the iPhone and you could play it. As the iPhone supports Multi-Touch , you could even play chords and press multiple keys at a time. A lacking feature is that it doesn’t provide learning lessons.

#8 – BackGrounds – Personalize your iPhone with this app to your hearts content. Actually not that much because Apple ,as we all know does not allow themes and stuff.

You got 36 categories to choose from.

#7 – Wolfram Alpha – A web-app with a neat interface. The technology is completely unique and is optimized for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It includes a special notation keyboard, customized iPhone output, editable history, and integration with maps and other iPhone services. The additional keyboard is full of mathematical inputs and symbols which makes it better for the iPhone/iPod Touch. The app is necessary for Wolfram Alpha users because if you go to the site from Safari on your iPod Touch/iPhone you get the normal desktop view which is not suitable for the iPhone. The price is terrific and the only thing which lets it down.

#6- Aardvark – Google recently brought Aardvark, a technology which they said they were impressed with. Aardvark is a place where you could ask questions and get answers within minutes from other users. A great way to interact and get your questions answered in less time. It even has an iPhone app with a slick interface and easy to use design. You could ask questions, answer them, log in via Facebook and much more. With Google with them it is bound to improve, so get to the App Store now and get it. It is better than Yahoo Answers.

App of the week : Bing

The iPhone/iPod touch app for this week is surprisingly Bing. Bing as we all know is a search engine from Microsoft! The bing app for the iPhone will well move a lot of Google users on the iPhone to this new app.
Though Google does have it’s own app for the iPhone but Bing offers a much better UI with great additional features.

The Bing app is FREE for download on the iTunes Store. As soon as the app is launched it tries to acquire your current location so that it could open up your country’s wallpaper of the day, news etc.

The wallpaper by Bing which changes everyday covers the whole screen making the status bar transparent which is awesome. It then has options to choose from like images, news, maps etc.
The app is very well designed and even sports a voice to text input for searching on Bing.
The Bing app is truly the App for the week!!!!!
