iPhone needs no introduction.Apple’s iPhone has passed Motorola’s Razr to become the top consumer phone in USA.
Today I am going to tell you not 5, not 10 but 23 exciting and useful iPhone apps to help you with shopping, chatting, reading and even refilling gas and much more.
Do you forget about shopping items and come home missing two or three of them just to curse and go back again? Isn’t it pretty annoying to list things in a paper and take it out inside a sophisticated shopping mall?
This One Trip Shopping List bring you a simple and ingenious interface for quickly organizing and building a shopping list. It’s simple, and any iPhone user should find it incredibly useful.
Are you a crazy chatter? The iPhoneChat web application lets you log into AIM, view your contacts, and handle tabbed chats. Go to the site using the link above and click on the See It In Action link – then click on the “Chat” folder on the page that opens to see the demo video.
Again if you need to log into different web messengers, you can try meebo.
Are you a keen bookworm? And find your laptop too big an application to roam around with and read at leisure? Then iPhone app Feeds is just the right gadget for you as google has officially released beta version for iPhone google reader. Note: Click on the google Reader link above, you must have a google sign on name and password to login and use Google Reader.

Do you want to edit a Microsoft document from iPhone? or say have some last minute inputs in Excel sheet. You can now do it from iZoho.
iiZoho bring in Zoho Writer, Zoho Sheet, and Zoho Show. The iPhone can display PDFs, Word docs, and Excel spreadsheets, but with Zoho’s tools you can actually edit some of them.
To which, an iPhone lover had to say,
“SWEET. i don’t know why i’d ever need to make a spreadsheet or write a doc on my iPhone, but i love knowing that i CAN.”
cute and true, lol.
Are you in need of Gas and can not find a station? And even if you do from the maps, you can not locate where exactly?
Give iPhone Gas.app your zip code. Not only do you get a quick overview of the offerings, but you can also click the station to get a Google Map view. It integrates with Google Maps too well. Nice app.
Do you leave early for office? Possibility is you miss out on morning news. What if your iPhone supplies that and from the newspaper you wanna read?
iActu provides a really cool newsstand interface for popular news outlets like the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and more. Not only is the homepage cool, but browsing headlines is also resized for optimal viewing.
Those who are familiar with digg, don’t need any reason to dig for.Get all the latest news, views and buzz through the really nice iPhone app for digg. It works pretty well.
Do you love clicking and sharing your photos? Is it too uncool to go to a tour with office laptop. So how will you put your snaps on internet? iFlickr does it with ease.
I wonder why didn’t Flickr think of any iPhone optimized app yet, but anyway, you can do it through an efficient app named iFlickr.
Wanna go for a movie with your date and don’t know which movie to go to? Don’t run around for telephone directory or call up your friends. To save you from embarrassment, goMovies is here.
goMovies provides a nice interface for looking up movie showtimes from movie site Fandango by zip code. Though, more such optimized and new apps are created in this segment.
Wanna surprise your spouse or children with new recipes but can not find one? Well, cooking books are as obsolete as yahoo search engines. So what do you do?
Cooking web site 101 Cookbooks has created an iPhone interface for searching for recipes on the go with your iPhone. Find it here
If you buy e-books and are an avid reader, then ereader is for you. Very simple application. To read a book you simply tap on the title in your Bookshelf and then flick across the page from right to left to turn the page or the other way to turn it back. Those fond of ereaders should try this on iPhone as well.
Evernote is an incredible application that lets you capture text, photo, and audio notes on the iPhone that are synced to the server.
The real power is in the recognition engine they use that can even find text in photos you capture so you will never forget anything again (thus the elephant icon). A free account will let you upload 40MB of data a month while a premium account (US$45/year or US$5/month) will let you upload 500MB/month. They provide a stronger security via SSL and you also get priority image recognition.
Need to do a transaction while you are on the way with no internet or bank at sight? If it is very important, then you are saved, thank SplashMonkey.
This new iPhone application has all functionalities that a modern day e-banking software have, with an even easier interface. Use it to monitor your checking and credit card account and also enter transactions on the go.
Do you love listening to music? Online music is on its way to future. and Pandora (internet raidio) is just another feature to it.
Pandora is an app that not only lets you listen to music (which works wonderfully with iPhone 3G) but also you can bookmark it online to get more information on the song and also you can give a thumps up to add it to your preference. Moreover, you can skip through the current playlist to listen to your desired songs.All on feather touch. Thanks Apple.
When you get Google and Apple collaborating under one roof, that is the height of facilities.
The Google Mobile App gives you something like Silverlight on the iPhone with the ability to quickly find web pages, business listings, phone contacts, and more with a smart filter methodology that lists relevant search results as you enter text. Makes your browsing easier.
Need a weather report before going for a long drive on a cloudy day? Did your favorite baseball team play today? Wanna know the score? Even if you are on street. express arranges it.
Two of the most popular modern social networking sites let you hook to iPhone and understand the world.
Twitterific is a wonderful application for twitter
Facebook has made an application of theirs esp for Apple iPhone.
So all what you need, iPhone has it.
Connecting to the Internet using Wi-Fi almost always delivers dramatically better performance. On-the-go JiWire helps you locate wireless hotspots around the world. Simply type in a location or zip code, and you’ll get a list of free and/or paid networks nearby.
DO you find iChat too restricted because it gives you only one option i.e. to chat in AIM? What if I offer you one that has not one or two but four prime messenger services in a very easy-to-use interface.
Mundu allows users to chat using AOL Instant Messenger, Yahoo Messenger, MSN Messenger, and Google’s GTalk through a clean and intuitive tabbed interface (one tab for login/logout of each service, one for contacts, and one for chats).
Forgetful people are not selectively so. They don’t only forget shopping items. If One trip shopping list was too much for a single application then have many under one roof just like Mundu did for messengers.
Listingly is a great online list manager that now offers an iPhone web application. Listingly can be used to create to-do lists, grocery lists, wish lists, and freestyle lists.
Listingly can also group items into categories (in fact, Grocery lists are smart lists that group similar items together automatically).
The two biggest challenges to taking advantage of the various iPhone applications are finding them and organizing them. uPhoneHome helps you do both.
Using an interface similar to the iPhone’s home screen, it provides icons/links to a large selection of iPhone applications. You can sort the list by date and category to help you find specific types of applications or to find new applications that have recently been released.
When you launch an application from uPhoneHome, your favorites are displayed, along with a home icon to return to uPhoneHome in a frame at the top edge of Safari’s display for easy access.
So all you appz freak iPhone users, don’t worry from now on.
With the RedEye system you can use your iPhone or iPod touch to control your TV, stereo, cable box, DVD player, and many other devices that receive standard (infrared) signals. In other words, no more hunting through your sofa cushions for all those different remotes – all the control you need is right in your pocket.
There are plenty of other applications for iPhones. But I discussed some of the most important and useful ones. I hope you liked the idea. For any query or suggestion, write to me.

This amazing app will help teach your kids how to write while playing. Great for preschoolers.
Drag Mr. Crab through the numbers while drawing the parts of a letter. Join lines to make letters, letters to words and so on. The software records your child’s strokes so you can review them later and see how they are improving.
Help your preschooler and other prereading children trace and paint letter and number shapes so they’ll be prepared for reading and writing in grade school.
Designed by parents, for preschoolers aged 2-5 years.
LetterTracer is an educational tool that helps preschoolers and other pre-reading children trace and paint letter and number shapes. Early exposure to letters and numbers helps prepare children for reading and writing in grade school. LetterTracer’s three-way combination of visual letters, interactivity via tracing, and a spoken voice-over helps children learn and retain the alphabet.
Designed by parents, LetterTracer is generally appropriate for children ages 2 to 5, and was intensively field-tested by our own children! Uppercase and lowercase letters A to Z and the numbers 0 through 9 are shown in three selectable styles:
✔ Flashcard mode: each letter is shown in its regular, filled-in black-on-white rendition. Use this mode as you would flash cards, to practice recognizing letters and numbers with your child.
✔ Tracing mode, for younger children: a hollow outline of each letter is shown. Your child can finger-paint on the screen to trace the letterform.
✔ Freeform mode, for older children: a smaller image of each letter is shown in the upper-left corner; the rest of the screen is available for freehand drawing of the letterform.
Choose from three difference voices; each calls out the name of letters as they appear, to reinforce your child’s learning:
✔ Adult Male
✔ Adult Female
LetterTracer is easy and fun to use for both parents and kids:
✔ In flash card mode, “swipe” back and forth to move between letters easily
✔ When drawing, shake your iPhone or iPod Touch to clear the screen and start over. Kids love this feature!
✔ Choose a larger, more forgiving brush size for younger children, or a smaller, more precise brush size for older children
✔ Choose from 10 painting colors
✔ Choose from three different voices to call out letters and numbers
Tactile practice with letters is an excellent complement to “passive education” from television. LetterTracer is appropriate for roughly the same audience as pre-reading and early-reading skills shows such as Super Why, Sesame Street, Blue’s Clues, WordGirl, Between the Lions and WordWorld.
LetterTracer is excellent ABC practice for native English speakers, but is also appropriate for introducing the English alphabet to ESL students.

Create a message that crawls across the iPhone screen like a news ticker. Start with names and work up from there.
Get your message across.
OBS: Free for the first 1000 customers.
Rulla is a large scrolling banner, great for displaying messages over a long distance. Kids and parents love it. Businesses people too. Try beaming the message of love across the dance floor; totally beats SMS. Nifty features include:
– Create messages with symbols you can’t even type with the built-in keyboard (including hearts, smileys, peace symbol, male/female, telephone, and yin yang).
– Roll the banner at five different speeds, from Very slow to Very fast.
– Choose between several contrasting color schemes, including red for light-sensitive environments (like astronomy or photography darkrooms).
– Three sizes for the banner text, from Small to Large.
– Saves your 20 most recent banner texts.
PS: Rulla works great with Chinese and Japanese characters, too. Try the handwriting keyboard yourself to create and display a message in Chinese. It’s really fun!
Trivia: “Rulla” is Swedish for “to roll.”
Note: The banner size adapts automatically to the technical limits of iPhone’s graphics subsystem. We hope to work around these limits in future (free) updates.
iKidsPlay takes preschooler stories and adapts them to the iPhone. This app is easily memorized by non-readers and easily learned by beginning readers. Bonus is the painting tool, a doodle pad and a recording/read-aloud section.

Now, finally, you’ll be able to get your fix without being bombarded with pictures of friends’ babies and invitations to socially-aware rallies! The company behind the super-popular title, Zynga, announced today that it’ll be bringing the game to the iPhone with Scramble Live.

Have you ever wondered the name of an actor while watching TV?
All you need to do is direct the iphone to the screen and after a few second
you will get the actor’s name and bio!
Skakash is a revolutionary celebrity face recognition app!
startup SkakashLLC announced today the launch of its face recognition iPhone app that allows users to recognize actors and celebrities while watching TV, simply by pointing the iPhone’s camera at the screen. Skakash, the “Shazam for celebrities” app, debuts in a crowdfunding campaign on the leading Indiegogo.com platform.
Skakash’s founder and CEO Moshe Greenshpan said “We brought face recognition technology from the security arena to the entertainment playground” “We’ve identified a great need among American TV viewers to get an instant answer to the most
common question – what’s this actor’s name?”
Skakash’s matching process quickly displays the celebrity’s name and biography, allowing the user to focus on the show rather than being distracted while searching for more info on Google or IMDB.
Saving the user the trouble of manually chasing the right frame, the face recognition app automatically captures the celebrity’s face from the screen. The Skakash app is offered as a part of the company’s crowdfunding campaign. “In addition to the obvious reason of raising R&D funds, Indiegogo is a great starting point to build a community of fans and users from scratch,” explained the founder of the self financed company.
With second screen technology on the rise, Skakash has the potential to become a widely used second screen app that interacts with its users, adds value and enhances the TV viewing experience overall. A recent Nielson survey showed that 41% of smartphone and tablet owners using their devices while watching TV every day.

Twitter is a great way to communicate information you are uniquely interested in. You follow people on Twitter because they provide information you are looking for and don’t find anywhere else.
Twitter is even more useful when it is used as a mobile app. You can receive all sorts of useful tidbits through your cell phone or even as a text message, if you don’t have a data plan on your phone.
Here’s one example: you can get local traffic updates through your Twitter account. Here’s how: create an RSS feed with traffic information and ask FeedTwit to send it to your Twitter account as a direct message.
The Yahoo! Developer Network explains how to get local traffic updates through an RSS feed. Although that example might be intimidating to someone who isn’t used to working with a code, let me simplify it for you. All you need to do is add your zip code to the end of the following URL:
For instance, although I live in a suburb of Charlotte, NC, I would add the zip code for my workplace at the end of that URL to get traffic updates on my way to work in downtown Charlotte:
Next you take the URL and give it to FeedTwit in order to send the RSS feed to your Twitter account by direct message. Typically when people use RSS feeds and Twitter they think they have to use a service like TwitterFeed. Now, TwitterFeed is a great service when you want to broadcast the contents of an RSS feed through your Twitter account. In this case I don’t think people living in New York (or anywhere else, for that matter) are interested in receiving a traffic report from Charlotte, NC (and would simply unfollow you for providing irrelevant information). Rather than broadcast an RSS feed to all your followers like TwitterFeed, FeedTwit sends the feed’s contents to you as a direct message- that only you will see. Since this will come to your Twitter account as a direct message, you can read it from your favorite Twitter app or even through text message- if you have set up device updates through your Twitter account- even if you don’t have a data plan on your cell phone. Pretty cool, huh!
It is simple to use FeedTwit. First you follow the FeedTwit Twitter account. Within an hour you will receive a direct message giving you a password for your FeedTwit account. Visit the FeedTwit homepage and login using the given password and tell FeedTwit to send you the RSS feed you have just created.
Pretty soon you will get your local traffic reports through your Twitter account.
Ales, stouts, porters, pilsners… so many beers, too little time. To help you navigate this vast and varied world of beer, you can always turn to your iPhone. There are plenty of beer apps available on iTunes — everything from beer games to reference guides — even apps that attempt to measure your levels of drunkenness.
iPhone wielding beer enthusiasts can rejoice over the following apps to satisfy your malty, hoppy and lager-induced desires. After all, there’s nothing like cracking open a frosty brew at the end of a long day –- or simulating it.
iBeer is one of those fun apps that doesn’t really do anything but entertain. It simulates a pint of beer that you can jostle and drink. With five different beers to choose from, the visual of tipping the glass (iPhone) back and seeing the liquid disappear is strikingly real. The loud burp at the end is an added bonus. No beer-related apps list would be complete without this popular one.
This app is a fantastic resource for a beer novice or one who wants to learn more about different brews. Divided into 12 categories, including brown ales, stouts and porters, and IPAs, Gallagher’s Beer Guide provides you with information on taste characteristics, popular choices within each category, and related styles.
There’s something unmistakably refreshing about a nice, cold Guinness. The dark, chocolaty and rich beer has its devout following, enough to spawn an iPhone app dedicated to finding exactly where this draught is served. Another fun feature of this app is its “Six Steps to Creating the Perfect Pint” lesson.
Note: Unfortunately, residents in AK, AZ, GA, HI, IN, KT, MO, OH, PA, TX and WV will find that this app does not work due to specific state laws related to alcohol advertising.
With more than 2,700 varieties listed in this app, iBeers Pro is like a who’s who of beer. Each beer lists the country of origin, brewer, type of beer and bottle size, as well as user ratings and an ability to add it to your favorites list. This is a good app to have for adventurous beer drinkers who like to go beyond the brews they’re familiar with. This app also comes in a Lite version for $1.99 and the regular iBeers version for $2.99.
If $3.99 is a little too steep and you’d rather get the information for free, BeerCloud is a good alternative. Although not as comprehensive as iBeers Pro, BeerCloud does offer the ability to search for beers, as well as determine where, via GPS tracking, a particular beer of choice is available near you.
Do you know what kind of beer goes best with Cajun food? How about lamb chops? If not, Beer Match can help you. By pairing 31 styles of beer with more than 500 different kinds of foods (including cheeses), you can instantly find out if the pale ale or the stout is the better choice when planning your menu.
They don’t call it a beer belly for nothing. As tasty as it is, you can quickly pack on the pounds if beer is consumed in excess. Drink Fit is a great app that provides users with full nutritional information for more than 1,600 drinks (including beer, cocktails, wine) and also offers a “My Night” feature where users can tally their caloric consumption for one evening of drinking. It’s a great app for anyone who is conscious about their dietary intake.
If big name beers don’t do it for you and you seek more of an off-the-beaten path microbrew, then this is a perfect app. Find Craft Beer uses GPS tracking to locate brew pubs, breweries, beer bars, beer stores and homebrew stores near you. The settings function enables you to select from any or all of these types of locations to identify the nearest locale to get a tasty microbrew.
For more ambitious beer drinkers who like to make their own brews, iBrewMaster is a comprehensive app that takes home brewers through the whole process. The app comes with 50 recipes and also enables users to keep thorough track of multiple batches that are being brewed at the same time.
Who doesn’t like a good Happy Hour? This app scours local bars in your area to find any happy hour specials near you. Happy Houred currently offers search functionality in approximately 700 cities in the U.S. but is predominantly user-generated, so new bars and happy hour specials are constantly being added.
