Top 10 iPhone 3G Applications

Update – After some years the list was kind of outdated, here are some additional applications that I have recently used the most:

  • Facebook
  • LinkedIn
  • TweetDeck (will so be Tweetie instead)
  • Air Mouse (wireless mouse pad app)
  • EyeTV (TV app)
  • DropBox (access files everywhere)
  • Remote (iTunes Remote app)
  • WordPress (access your wordpress site)
  • Jamie Oliver (cooking app)
  • My Football (Live soccer scores and tables)
  • LiveScore (LIve soccer scores)
  • Weather Pro (wheather app)
  • DMI Byvejret (danish weather app)
  • Google (GMail, Calendar web applications)
  • SeneseEarn (Google Adsense app)
  • AnalyticsApp (Google Analytics app)
  • Opera Mini (alternative browser – good for heavy sites)
  • TjekBenzin (danish gas price app)

This is yet another list of favorite iPhone 3G applications available from the Apple App Store. Actually, it is not ordered top 10 list, but just a list of the 10 applications that I found most useful. No games are included since games qualify for their own top 10 list. Listed is also mainly free applications since I have only bought a couple of applications at this time. The list will be updated as new and better applications arrive at App Store.

  • Remote
    With Remote, you can control the music on your computer or Apple TV from your iPod touch or iPhone. Play, pause, skip, shuffle. See your songs, playlists, and album art on your iPod touch or iPhone as if you were right in front of your computer. Remote is free and works with your Wi-Fi network, so you can control playback from anywhere in and around your home.
  • FileMagnet (NOT FREE 30DDK)
    FileMagnet makes it easy to copy files from your Mac and view them on your iPhone and iPod touch. It supports all the common file types, including PDFs, Microsoft Office documents, images, movies, sounds and even folders. By running the FileMagnet Uploader on your Mac, you can wirelessly copy files over your wi-fi network. FileMagnet also lets you copy files from your phone to another mac – use your iPhone like a hard drive!
    Constraints: It only works with Mac, one more thing that Windows users must  miss.
  • Benzin Priser (A danish specific app)
    The application uses the FDM Benzin Priser service to get the latest gas-prices for your current area (GPS Support), or the latest prices for your regular gas stations. Reporting prices from the application to help others get gas cheaper is easy.
    Constraints: How usable this application is in your area rely on the frequency of gas prices reported.

  • Phanfare
    The phanfare iPhone application turns your iPhone into a connected digital camera. Once installed, you take photos with the Phanfare application and they are uploaded directly into your Phanfare account over the cell network and wi-fi.
  • YouNote
    YouNote is an application for iPhone that allows you to take quick notes on all sorts of information. This information is accessible and available at all times on your iPhone. Whatever format the note is in (Drawing, Audio, Text, Photo, etc.), it is possible to link different criteria (tags, a color, the geolocation, etc.) which simplifies the filing and finding of the notes.
