Six iOS apps you need right now

“If you’re going to be buying (or receiving) a new iOS device over the holidays, you’re going to want to grab the hottest apps to see what the App Store has to offer,” Jason Parker writes for CNET.

“But with close to 750,000 apps available, it can be a bit daunting to figure out which ones to choose,” Parker writes. “To get you started, I put together a list of apps that include both all-time hits and up-and-coming new software.”

Parker writes, “Each of these is available for iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch, and give you a sampling of what your new iOS device can do.”

    1. No, this is one person’s opinion. Until now my world has been fine without several of these apps. I don’t know how much longer my world will remain intact until I install all these apps. I think I’ll live dangerously and eschew his advice.

            1. … vulture capitalist with the multiple off-shore accounts who didn’t/doesn’t pay his full share of taxes is the Bad Guy.
              Thanks for straightening that out. In a discussion supposedly intended for TECHNICAL topics.
              Of the five of you, only BLN was even close to “On Topic” … how does THAT make you feel?

            2. … vulture capitalist with the multiple off-shore accounts who didn’t/doesn’t pay his full share of taxes is the Bad Guy.

              Sounds like you cut & pasted that statement directly from a ‘Move-on’ dot org website. Very insightful to your understanding of economics and the tax code.
              1.) if you have over 50 million dollars of net worth, you need to diversify your portfolio, which means investing overseas or in an offshore account. Nobody ever said he had ALL of his money offshore. if he had $5 million or $10 million offshore, that would hardly be worth getting your panties in a bunch about. With the rate at which our economy is starting to nosedive, hell, I’m even considering under the radar investment options for our long term savings.

              2.) As long as a person is following the IRS Tax Code legally, they are in fact paying their fair share of taxes. not much more to discuss here except for the fact that over the past 50+ years, lawmakers have been inserting all of these loopholes, tax breaks and exceptions for the purpose of lowering someones tax burden… all of which is perfectly legal. if you don’t like it, blame the government.

              The concept of “full share” or “fair share” of taxes is subjective at best. It’s really just subterfuge for someone who hates the wealthy because they are not. If Romney pays 15% taxes on one of his portfolio accounts which equals a net tax payment of $6 million to the IRS annually, I’m quite sure it’s a bit more than the average person who is paying a 17.5% tax rate on $45k per year to the U.S. Govt. ($7,875/year). Call me silly, but if you can’t take your eyes away from the “%” symbol, then you are a fool, easily swayed.

  1. Netflix is great Hulu too
    Flipboard I use all the time
    Wordbook dictionary
    Tip calculator
    Shazam a must have
    Clinometer can come in handy and it really impresses people

    1. i second that notion..but i think he meant apps u have to download. his selections sucks.

      i would say
      Find my iphone
      Your banks app
      Shazam or soundhound
      Amazon ( to compare prices and to have a UPC scanner)
      Google Chrome.. in case something doesn’t work on Safari

  2. Strategy puzzle game Vorble that Chief Organiser of the Mind Sports Olympiad, Etan Ilfeld, said: “Vorble is a brilliant 3D strategy game that is simple to learn and provides hours of exercise for the imagination and the mind.”
