New Verizon iPhone 4 customer? Here's a list of apps you should definitely have
AT&T's monopoly on the iPhone 4 has been lifted, and the result didn't disappoint - Verizon recorded its best ever first day sales. And now that the subscribers of the largest US carrier (is it, actually?) have the Apple gadget at their disposal, it's only right to present them with some iPhone apps they should definitely have.
- Netflix: If you are a TV buff, this is your app. Even if you are not, chances are you still want it, because everyone needs to kill an hour or two occasionally. Streaming with Netflix is flowing flawlessly over Wi-Fi, and a wide variety of TV shows and movies are available.
- Shazam: If you are sick and tired of all these "Err... no, seriously, what was the name of that song?" conversations, you can download Shazam, and confidently say "This is...". Not to mention the chance to impress some bird with your (cough, cough) endless music knowledge.
- Kindle: Nowadays, reading on smartphones is an easy and pleasurable exercise - even more with Kindle, which offers new books and classics along with a good interface. A must have app for your newly purchased iPhone.
- Google Mobile App: We enjoy the fact we can find quite a few Google applications in the App Store, and Google Mobile App is one of them. It offers all the goodies like Google Goggles, voice search and many more.
- Wikipanion: An iOS-optimized version of Wikipedia, this app gives you all the information you need about... well, everything. PhoneArena is still better for phones and tablets, though.
- Weatherbug: It has all the functions you need - 7-day and hourly forecasts, local weather conditions, National Weather Service alerts and live weather cameras. Seriously, what else do you need?
- Skype: Skype is connecting the world, so it's always useful to have this app - just think of these video calls you are going to make.
- Foursquare: Whether you want to earn badges, become a mayor or just share your location, Foursquare is the app to have.
- Skyfire: Skyfire is proving to be a popular choice for Apple users, and this is completely understandable, considering it's their only option to play Flash videos on the web.
