  1. I agree that iPhone is extremely useful device for travelling professionals. Not just because iPhone have many useful applications, but it’s also because iPhone have good battery performance compare to some other Smartphone OS.

  2. Actually I don’t have got any iPhones yet, I’m using Samsung C3010s, this apps will help me when I’ll get a iPhone, but at this time I need some apps for my current one, can you provide some?

  3. I also like to have on my smart phone a song recognizer… those apps that listed to any song for a few seconds and they can tell you the name and the singer… it’s wonderful 😀 the problem with those is that they can’t (yet) filter the noise… so it must be quite when you’re doing the recognition

  4. I hear that the iPhone 4 is great. It comes video-enabled and everything (for Skype-ing, e.g.) Unfortunately, I don’t have one…yet.

  5. I’ve found that most of the best apps on the iphone are not downloadable apps at all but rather web apps, that you can either access straight from Safari or by adding a link to your home screen. Workflowy and Basecamp are both great examples of the right way to build a web app. Best of all, these work on all smartphones that support HTML 5 so nobody gets left out.

  6. I’m currently using a droid which has tons of free apps, but i’ve been debating switching to Iphone for sweet games like Words with Friends or Angry Birds

  7. I don’t have an iPhone…yet:). But I’m sure I’ll be using a lot of apps when time comes. I’m already a big fan of Brain Trainer, I’ve been playing it on my boyfriend’s iPhone. Btw of apps, I also like the Talking Tom one, for a few moments of good laugh now and then.
