Between the useful functions your iPhone serves and the entertainment it provides, you might have your iPhone glued to your hand during your waking hours. We do, too. You've heard the saying "There's an app for that" — and there is! We're bringing you fun and useful apps for your iPhone every week. Today, we're sharing five apps that are ideal for dads.

In honor of Father's Day, we are celebrating some of the best apps for dads. From grilling tips to sports scores, these iPhone apps offer something for every father.

If your dad loves to golf, iYardage will allow him to easily manage his scores and maybe even help out his game. The iYardage app is an interactive golf scorecard that tracks basic scores and provides game statistics, including putts, fairway hits, GIR and more. Through tracking all these different aspects, the user can more easily pinpoint weaknesses and find out what areas he needs to work on.

Summer grilling season is here. If your dad loves his steaks, this app is a must. Omaha Steaks Steak Time features more than 100 recipes, a grilling timer, video tutorials and more.

If you have the Bluetooth-enabled iGrill cooking thermometer, you even can monitor your steak's progress from 200 feet away.

ESPN and Yahoo sports apps are fine for tracking sports scores, but the Sports Tap app takes it to a new level. SportsTap allows users to follow all their favorite teams in one place.
