The iPhone 3G, which is the new model of the classic iPhone, offers state of the art performance and functionality that has brought about a new class of all purpose phones. The iPhone 3G was released in late 2008, and become an instant hit with the wide variety of new iPhone 3G applications that became available. Although some apps for iPhone 3G cost money, there are a lot of them that come with the phone and/or can be downloaded for free. Here is a list of some of the most well known iPhone 3G apps.
Number one on the list is Google Maps with GPS functionality. This is a standard free app for the iPhone 3G, but it is one of the most well known and useful of the iPhone 3G apps. Obviously you can access Google Maps from any PC, but when you combine it with GPS functionality you have amazing software that can help you both in the car and on the street. With the release of the 2.2 update, Google Maps became integrated with street view, walking directions, and mass transit fares and directions. Talk about a useful tool, Google maps has it all.
Another popular iPhone 3G app is VoiceNotes, which allows you to, you guessed it, record your own voice notes on the fly. This can save you a lot of time and it is much easier to talk than type on the run. Weight Tracker is also cool because it allows you to keep track of your bodyweight and integrate with several websites. Although this isn’t that handy for people that could care less, it is helpful for those that are on diets or trying to lose weight.
One of the best of the iPhone 3G apps is Remote, which turns your iPhone into a WI-FI remote and allows you to change and choose music from anywhere. I can only imagine the possibilities of using this application in my home to run a home theater or sound system. You can sit back and relax without having to ever get up to change the tunes by hand.
Some other neat iPhone 3G apps are Mobile Banking for Bank of America customers and TypePad, which is made for bloggers who like to update their blog and Twitter accounts on the go. Although I prefer WordPress, switching to TypePad isn’t that big of a deal. You can also read the NY Times on your iPhone (you can also have it delivered) or connect to the Mobile News Network if you are a news junkie.
eBay mobile allows you to keep up with the latest auctions, while Evernote and Weatherbug can help you manage your notes and keep track of the weather. There really is no limit to what can be accomplished with iPhone 3G apps, so not matter what interests you, you are bound to find an app to suit your needs. Many of the best iPhone 3G apps are free, which makes it even easier to turn your iPhone into a powerhouse.
