I've had an iPhone now for 3 years, and I don't think I could live without it. It is a tool for me that helps me get everything done. My co-host just got an iPhone, and is unsure whether she likes it or not. Maybe it's because she doesn't know what is capable of.  Here's the apps you need for the Iphone.


1.  Google. Just google the name of the place, or what you are looking for.  If you want a pizza place, say pizza.  It will give you a list of pizza places near you, directions, and of course the phone number.  You can also just speak into it.  (of course if you have the 4s with siri, you can just ask her.)

2.  The Weather Channel. I use this all the time because it's a better weather tool than the default iPhone weather.  You can even see the radar!

3.  Wikipedia. It's a handy reference tool if you've got a question about something.  I use it all the time.

4.  Converter App. Need to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit?  What about when you're cooking and need to convert quarts to cups?  Also difficult metric conversions come into play.  It sounds like something you wouldn't need, but turns out that I use this weekly.

5.  Flixter. Thinking about going to a movie?  What's playing?  Just pull out your phone and it gives you every movie theater, time, and synopsis and review instantly.

6.  Facebook. The facebook app for the iPhone recently was upgraded.  Now that the kinks are worked out of it, it's a pretty good app that lets you do most of the same things you can do on a computer.

7.  Radiopup. If you listen to B105, you gotta have radiopup.  It's also available on the android market.  You can stream B105 right from your smartphone.

8.  Angry Birds. It's the one game that is consistently in the top app purchases.  If you don't have angry birds, you just don't get it.
