5 Free iPhone Apps No One Should Be Without
Here is a run down of the top 5 Apple iPhone Apps that no user should be without.
Associated Press Mobile News Network: If you follow the news, then you already know that most of the day’s major stories come from the Associated Press. So why bother subscribing to all the various newspapers they spread their content to and just go straight to the source. The AP Mobile News Network app gives you moment access to the most current news in local, national, and international arenas; already sports, entertainment. It lets you customize which types of content you receive, it lets you save stories of particular interest to you, and already lets you proportion those stories with friends and family via text message or email.
Ifbyphone Conference Call: This free iPhone app, the second from the folks at Ifbyphone, does just what it says – enables you to make conference calls using your iPhone and iPod Touch. As part of this service, users get 100 free minutes of conference call time per month, with additional time obtainable for buy. The app was designed to make it easier for people on-the-go to participate in conference calls without a lot of setup or technical knowledge.
Fring: Of all the mobile VoIP related iPhone apps, Fring stands out in offering users more than just money savings on calling costs (and minutes). With Fring, you can import buddy lists and contacts from MSN Messenger, GoogleTalk, AIM, ICQ, Yahoo, and pretty much all the other most widely-used IM sets. So the people you call (for free) don’t already need to be using Fring to receive your calls (or your IMs for that matter). Heck, they can already be using Skype.
Google Earth for iPhone: Few people haven’t heard of Google Earth by now, especially in the iPhone-using community. And with the shared ubiquity shared by both Google and Apple’s “i” devices, (iPhone, iPod, etc) it was only a matter of time before the two started supporting each other’s most popular products and features. Now you can get the same unparalleled mapping and satellite imaging program in the palm of your iPhone-loving hand.
Google Mobile updated version: And that’s not the only new free capabilities Google is bringing to the iPhone. Now, with its latest update of Google Mobile, users no longer need to have their fingers do the walking for them. Thanks to the integration of voice-recognition technology, people can now speak their search queries into their iPhone and have Google deliver its same thorough and reliable list of results.
Who says you have to pay money to get more strength and versatility from your iPhone? Not now, that’s for sure – when so many great sets and features can be found on the iTunes iPhone App Store for free.
