iBooks app7iBooks

8MotionX GPS Drive

For a cheaper navigation app, at only $0.99, you can get directions via the MotionX GPS app. Get turn-by-turn instructions as the app runs in the background.

9Cheap Gas!

Not much explanation needed here – find a gas station nearby – or anywhere else – with this genius money-saving app.

10The New York Times app

The new, improved app for the iPhone 4 gave the old New York Times app a splashy, must-read upgrade. Now it includes loads of images, videos, the latest headlines, news bites and more, right on your phone. Best of all, it’s free.


This music app’s new feature that will make users especially happy is that it runs no matter what other app you’re using (as long as the other app doesn’t need volume). Since Pandora was already one of the most popular apps for the iPhone, this bonus will likely help maintain its prime status.


The biggest news about the iPhone 4 pre-launch was the new front-facing camera. This allows for two-way, face-to-face video chats, giving it a web-cam feel; some medical professionals are even using it as a pre-appointment to assess patient needs. We say it’s total fun for chatting with family and friends, but leave the doc appointments for “real” face-to-face time.

13Flight control

Put simply, Flight Control might be the simplest way to have a ton of fun. The game is all about landing planes and helicopters at an airport runway without crashing them into each other. A tiny glimpse into the lives of real flight controllers – minus the real-life stress.

14Tap Tap revenge 3

Super addictive, this tapping game lets you tap to your own tunes. A nice feature: You can pause – so you can update Facebook, Twitter or check that new email.

Whatever your daily needs, these iPhone 4 apps and many others can make your life easier and more interesting.
