I only like the free ones. Don't want to be forking out money for stuff.

1) Real Racing

The first thing that will grab you in Real Racing are the amazing graphics. Even the intro is rendered graphics, not video. In game the menus are perfect, highly contrasted, clear typography and easy usability. In game I’m always impressed by the level of detail. First, in the levels you have trees, signage, crowds, everything that makes this feel like a real racing experience. While driving you will even get lens flare while driving toward the sun. Second, you have details in the way the game is designed.

2) Yelp

Making full use of the iPhone 3GS's GPS capabilities, the Yelp app — which 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.


3) Mashable

Mashable is The Social Media Guide - a place for tips, how-tos and the latest information about social media for web users, brands, news organizations, marketers and charities. This app helps you keep up to date with all the latest information and developments while on the move.

4) Tweetie 2

Love it or hate it, Twitter is here to stay, so you might as well sign up and arm yourself with the best app available: Tweetie 2. It has been significantly revamped from its original incarnation and now handles multiple Twitter accounts, translates foreign tweets and links Twitter contacts to your address-book contacts. You can also perform basic functions, like reading and tweeting, offline — and everything automatically syncs when you come back online. Tweetie 2 even syncs with your desktop version of Tweetie.

5) RunKeeper

It feels a little like Big Brother, but in a good way. The RunKeeper app tracks your outdoor runs using your GPS-enabled iPhone. It calculates calories burned, distance traveled, duration, pace and altitude and even traces your path on a map. All your workouts are stored over time, so you can monitor your progress and identify areas for improvement. The app also has built-in iPod controls, so you don't have to exit the app to shuffle through your playlist. If you're not the outdoors type and prefer slogging away on a treadmill, RunKeeper will still track your fitness stats.


6) Paper Toss

Featured in the top 5 free applications in the App Store, Paper Toss by Backflip Studios has been a smash hit across the iPhone and iPod Touch nation. A game anyone who has ever spent time in an office building will recognize, Paper Toss delivers on the simple, fun, and surprisingly challenging enjoyment one can receive from trying to flick a paper ball into a bin.

7) Brothers in Arms

Brothers In Arms Hour of Heroes offers up 14 missions spread across three campaigns during World War II. Your role is that of a soldier in the 101st Airborne. Throughout the game you'll find yourself running around on foot using numerous different weapons depending on what the situation calls for and even participating in vehicular combat in a 4x4 and a Sherman tank. Basically, this game offers up everything that you would expect out of a video game on any current portable console.

8) Lightsaber

The iPhone Light Saber App is completely free. This pocket Saber uses the iPhones accelerometer (how it can tell when you’re moving it) matched with light saber sounds. The external speakers on the phone, then, make it seems like you’re wielding an invisible saber which is arguably even more daunting of a weapon.

9) Mint

One of the best ways to manage, track, and budget your finances on a daily basis is using Mint.com, an easy way to see all your accounts in one place, find instant savings, and understand your money and your spending habits instantly. Mint.com has a sleek design and intuitive interface so you can quickly check balances of your checking, savings, credit card, loan, and investment accounts.

10) Fring

Sometimes chatting with your friends and colleagues on the Internet can feel like tracking down a great diaspora across continents and seas, with one person logging on at AIM, while another prefers GTalk, and a third refuses to touch anything other than ICQ. While programs such as Adium have long since resolved this problem on the desktop by allowing users to fire up one app and access multiple platforms, the iPhone is still new enough that these issues are just getting shaken out. Fring from Fringland is one of several apps attempting to resolve this, and better yet, it’s also one of a handful of providers bringing VoIP to the iPhone.

11) Read It Later

Read It Later lets you save pages to read later, even without an Internet connection. When you come across an article or a website you'd like to read but can't at that time, save it to your Read it Later list. You can then read it whenever you have a moment, on the couch, in your commute, on the plane, train, or practically anywhere. This allows you to eliminate the cluttering of bookmarks and inboxes with links that are merely of a one-time interest. It's like a staging area for bookmarks.

12) FlightTrack Pro

Frequent flyers now have the ultimate app for checking itineraries and tracking flights. All you have to do is e-mail your travel plans to TripIt, which organizes a master itinerary (shared itineraries too) that you can view through the FlightTrack Pro app on your iPhone. The app is smart enough to predict flight complications based on weather. It also gives you access to airport delays and closures, real-time flight status and gate changes. And it helps you find another flight if yours gets canceled. If you need to let someone at the other end know that you'll be late, you can send an e-mail through FlightTrack Pro.
