I’ve had my iPhone 3GS for about a year and have loaded a lot of apps into it. Some of the apps I have since discarded, but there are many worthwile apps and I thought I would share my Top Ten iPhone apps. All of these apps work on the 3GS running iOS 4.2.1. These apps are listed in no particular order and were free at the time I downloaded them.
There are other great apps for the iPhone, but I limited this list to my favorite ten apps. I’m curious what your favorite iPhone apps are.
Note: With the new iOS, you can organize your apps into folders for easier access.
We have had an interesting weather morning. High winds were forecasted to begin overnight and, sure enough, winds were howling when I got up this morning. Then, around 7:10 a.m., I saw a Twitter post announcing a tornado warning for Elburn, Illinois which is about 8-10 miles southwest of my home. Almost immediately, Kevin and I heard tornado sirens going off. We woke my mom up and Kevin went turned on the basement lights. Then the sirens blasted the “all clear” signal so we did not go out. I took my cell phone onto the deck and recorded the clouds as they went by overhead. You can really hear the wind gusts! The news is hyping this as the worst storm in 70 years. Already there have been wind gusts of up to 70 mph recorded in Tazewell County, south of us. This is suppose to go on through Wednesday.
I posted an earlier video showing a large tree blocking the road east of Plato Center, Illinois which is a small town a couple miles west of my home.
Can’t wait to see how the rest of the day goes!!!
This afternoon I finally took the plunge and bought an iPhone 3G S. We switched over from our T-Mobile family plan and joined my wife (and her iPhone) on a family plan at AT&T. I’ve been spending part of the day loading apps onto the phone and syncing it with iTunes. So far I’ve played with the Facebook, Tweetdeck and Yahoo! fantasy baseball apps. Looking forward to downloading more apps including one from Gibson that will let me tune my guitar. Still trying to decide between Foursquare and Gowalla.
With the recent news from Apple that iPhone OS 4.0 will be released this summer, I am giving very serious consideration to getting one. I have a 2+ year-old Motorola RAZR 2 from T-Mobile and it no longer is practical for what I want to do with my cell phone. I was hoping to get the Nexus One, but Google has made it difficult for existing T-Mobile customers to obtain one (I have a family plan). My wife bought an iPhone around Christmas and loves it. Now that Twitter has announced the purchase of iPhone app Tweetie, I'm more than ready to get an iPhone. My wife has experienced no problems with AT&T's coverage (we live in the Chicago area) so network performance is not a concern.
