I purchased my iPhone with the intention of using it solely for work. That concept lasted approximately 5 minutes after discovering that 250,000+ apps were on offer. From social networking to productivity, from sports to weather, here are some of my favourite and most highly rated FREE apps for the iPhone.
TweetDeck: If you’re a fan of Twitter then this free, slick app is for you. It is fully customisable and can display a wealth of info about your feeds.
Yelp: Are you a traveller? If so, download this brilliant and easy to use travel companion. Simply point your iPhone in the direction you want to go and a list of nearby bars, restaurants, ATMs and the like will appear!
Google Earth: One cannot mention travel without also mentioning this incredible free app from Google, which includes links to Wikipedia. It offers information, satellite imagery, maps and 3D buildings for virtually every place on the planet.
One Tap Movies: Off out to see a film but don’t know what’s on? This app tell you all you need to know – what’s showing at your local cinema(s), times and even movie reviews. And it’s completely free of charge!
