Best iPhone Apps

We round up the best iPhone apps available today, from time-saving productivity tools to games you won’t be able to put down.

It’s now been over two years since we first gazed upon the well-stocked shelves of the iTunes App Store. While our Top iPhone Apps were tough to choose the first time around, the task has become even tougher as developers have flooded the market with apps, now to the tune of over 300,000 (that’s a separate app for every person in the city of Pittsburgh). Even for a niche tasks like calculating your blood alcohol content after a night of drinking, you can find over a dozen apps that fit the bill. And that’s not even beginning to account for the scores of oddball games out there. Which ones belong on your phone? We’ve been scouring the App Store nonstop, soliciting the advice of friends and coworkers, and putting our own phones to work as test machines to maintain a continually updated list of our favorite apps in five different categories.
