Some New Some Old: Cool IPhone Apps

By Anna Nadette

Last week my friend had put up a status of Facebook, ‘I finally got an iPhone’. This friend had been saving for this smart-phone from her pocket-money ever since it was launched in 2007. And this was not just any multimedia enabled smart-phone, it was Steve Job’s dream realised by people at Apple Inc.

One of the most distinguishing features that iPhone had back in 2007 were the apps. These applications were developed by third parties. There functionality ranged from social networking sites to GPRS, and celebrities to sports.

The apps today get better and their number gets bigger. According to a rough estimate there are about over two hundred thousand applications present. And there’s no stopping here!

The month of Ramadan is here in the Islamic calendar for example and so are a number of unique apps that facilitate the Muslims. For recitation of the holy text and prayers there is the iPray app and the iQuran app. Along with these there are the ‘Find Mecca’ and ‘Find Mosque’ apps which aid the Muslims in on a journey for their place to worship.

And since Islam is not the only religion there are applications for other religions too. There is the Hindu scripture also in the iPhone and the Christian Bible. And similarly a whole plethora of apps for different festivities and events.

Descent is one app that took me by complete surprise. A freefall calculator the Descend according to the developers can calculate the time it would take to freefall to the earth most accurately. And it would also be able to calculate the speed you would be travelling before hitting the earth’s surface.

Road raging is highly ranked free app. This is where you have to amass fuel and compete with other vehicles on the way. The highly addictive and thought-provoking strategy games are also very popular at the App Store.

These are just some of the apps that make the iPhone such a cool gadget to use. I will call up my friend to check how much she is addicted to her iPhone. May be a can borrow it for few days this time I go around her house ;) .

Buy cool iPhone, and get best deals on iPad.
