Top 10 Free iPhone Apps

I’ve listed my favorite iPhone Apps in alphabetical order to save me from splitting hairs over the precise order. If you have other apps I should consider for the future, please list them in the comments section.

  1. Bible – Includes a number of great translations, but unfortunately not the New Revised Standard Version — and it’s much lighter than carrying a Bible around.
  2. Constitution – In these days of frequent Constitutional debate, I’ve found it handy to have a quick reference to what the actual text of the Constitution says.
  3. Flashlight – Quickest way to use your iPhone to find your way around in the dark.
  4. Flixster – I love searching for films by location as well as the integration of the Rotten Tomatoes reviews that helps speed film selection.
  5. Insight Timer – Keeps time for you while you meditate, and saves you from carrying around sundry bells and chimes.
  6. Kindle – I’ve been shocked how much I’ve enjoyed reading entire novels on such a tiny screen.
  7. The New York Times – The newspaper of record. What more is there to say?
  8. NPR Finder – Locate the strongest NPR signal when traveling.
  9. Urbanspoon – Who needs a travel guide anymore, when you can combine serendipity with this app to quickly locate multiple restaurant options?
  10. The Weather Channel – I use this app at least once a day to discern what to wear, especially before heading outside to exercise.

Honorable mentions: I love that my iPhone can also double as a Starbucks Rewards Card via the Mobile Card app (the Groupon and Living Social apps are similarly helpful with cutting down on paper — and not having to worrying about leaving your coupon at home), HopStop is great for navigating public transportation, and I’m looking forward to experimenting with the Amazon PriceCheck app.

    I’ve been using the Bible app for quite some time, and I think the new update is just great. Having audio bibles for most popular translations/versions are great.
    I have also posted my quick review with screenshots here:
    Just thought I share them too.
    Now, I’m looking forward for the updates to become available for the iPad too.
