[definitive] Best iPhone Apps

186 posts in this topic

looks nice, but $4...

if you made it $1 you would see a LOT more sales.

i would rather have all my news sites bookmarked in safari (as i do) then pay $4 then have to use the app constantly until it knows what i want to read.

you could also make a free version with ads in it, then people could try it without opening up installous and grabbing the full version.

except you can't read them offline, and surely you find juggling bookmarks infuriating? we think of broadershet as similar to instapaper for reading great content wherever you are.

$4 for a lifetime of interesting news seems good in our eyes :)

Beejive IM - best IM app

Redlaser - barcode reader

Files - copy files over wifi and view standard files

Remote - control iTunes from your iPhone

I've got a ton of apps and games on my phone and those above 4 are the best. I haven't played the games

i have enough to rate them, but doom and dungeon hunters are both a lot of fun.

$4 is still too much.

You would probably see more than 4x sales at $1 then at $4, more money for you in the end.

Compare it to other apps are that price.

Alive4ever has bluetooth peer to peer, has amazing graphics and good controls, probably took a lot of time and skill to make, it's $3 and I bought it on sale for $1.

IM+ - Instant Messenger App

IM+ was the first IM client I bought because it was the cheapest that supported PUSH. I was never really happy with it... i did a test to see how long it would take to receive a notification from a FB IM. Sometimes the notifications wouldn't ever hit my phone...sometimes it took up to 10 or more minutes. Just not very reliable. Then whenever I would respond to a notification it was like the whole app had to reboot. When I went from WiFi to 3g or Edge I would have to logout on all my IMs and relogin.

I switched to Beejive IM and I've been very satisfied. All notifications come in within a few seconds, and it has a very graceful transition between a notification and the chat screen for that person. You can also associate people on your buddy list with their contact info on your phone. For Facebook users, if the contact on your phone doesn't already have a photo it will place the photo from FB for you. Awesome app.

I was on my way in to post the same.

I replaced the google.app with Bing. I love the search results. Superb layout with images and maps. I typed in psp for a quick tryout, and it even posted results on my local shops on where I could go out and buy one with sorted by distance.

very well done, sleek and elegant!
