Ten popular free apps for iPhone

There are a bunch of great iPhone apps in Apple's app store. Many of them are free and can make you more organized, productive and accountable. The following list showcases our pick of ten popular free iPhone apps. It shows functions of each application and can help you know clearly about them.

1 Facebook

The version 3 of Facebook is a triumph. The revised grid-based 'home screens' provide speedy access to regularly visited sections (news feed, notifications, and so on) and pages, and the experience is such that it in many ways beats the browser version.

2 Gorillacam

Pretty much from nowhere, Gorillacam arrived in December 2009 from the creators of the Gorillapod tripods. It mashes together a slew of features to hugely improve an iPhone's camera (timer, multi-shot, spirit-level, on-screen grid, 'press anywhere' capture), meaning you can bin a half-dozen standalone apps that offer similar things.

3 RunKeeper Free

The prospect of Nike+ but better and for free might sound unlikely, but that's what RunKeeper Free provides. The app uses an iPhone's GPS capabilities to track your jogging route, and provides mapping and details of pace and calories burned. Activities can be shared online, and treadmill runs can be entered manually.

4 Stanza

Kindle's grabbed many 'electronic book' headlines, but an iPhone or iPod touch is a perfectly competent alternative - at least if you have the right app to hand. Stanza enables you to download books from various sources (many of which offer free titles), and you can transfer your own ePub, PDF or eReader titles from the free Stanza Desktop.

5 Dropbox

Plenty of apps exist for transferring content between your computer and your device, but Dropbox is free and easier to use than most of its contemporaries. Dump files you want to sync in a folder on your computer and Dropbox for your device will enable you to access them, download them for offline viewing, and, in many cases, view them.

Is it me or has the quality of the front page news been really *interesting* as of late? Maybe it's because all of these new "news reporters" are trying to get articles posted.

Check the Windows Phone 7 marketplace.

No angry birds? <wait patiently for the BBQ to start>

I liked the look of that music app actually, I'm totally tone deaf but I find things like that amusing

Yeah, TonePad is a great little app. It's very easy to use, and it's pretty hard to make something sound terrible in that; unless you just light up every dot on the screen. I remember a very similar thing in an online music editor I tried out before. [url=http://www.aviary.com/]I think this is the site[/url], but I haven't been on it in ages, and it looks like it's changed since I last used it.

If they are popular, why do you need to tell people?

Because not everyone knows about them? I sure as hell didn't know about Gorillacam or Stanza.

Good article. I'll keep it bookmarked until November when I finally own/inherit my own iPhone.

Popular = Majority
Popular ≠ Everyone

Popular also doesn't always mean the best product (from a price, functionality, scope pov).

Good question, but not everyone actually knows all the benefits of the App Store, one of my friend was really mad at his iPhone cause some of their friends had more up to date apps than his, until I showed him that the little red number over the icon of the App Store means the ones that need update, and three of them were amazed when I showed them Stanza.

Not everyone is a geek like us, most of the people uses the most basics functions of their gadgets and remember they have become a social status symbol, so the important thing is that you have them not that you can use them.
