iPhone Apps

Culture
Apps. Nobody has more of 'em in the cupboard than the iPhone. Once you weed out the really stupid ones, we are left with a somewhat smaller pack. So let's celebrate the good today. Top 5 iPhone Apps, as determined by the editors of CNET and verified and ranked by you. Because, you know, we need adult supervision. Here we go. #5: Photoshop.com. Yes, Photoshop -- one of the most overwrought pieces of software on earth, so how does it work on an iPhone? Great, because it gets slimmed down to just the features you can comprehend in a way you can figure out ... Even better: ItÕs free which is an even bigger departure from the real Photoshop. #4 is where we kick in the games: Flight Control. Nothing says fun like spending a little time simulating the most stressful job in the world. In this one tou vector in multiple planes at varying speeds and try to get them all down safely before an avatar of Ronald Reagan comes in and fires everyone in the control tower. OK, that last part doesn't really happen. But this one's only a buck so you can afford it even if you are out of work. #3 Pandora. I know what you're thinking. If this isn't #1, what is? Pandora is the monster streaming music service that has everyone talking. This free version on the iPhone is even better: Instead of audio ads it pays its way with banner ads you'll never look at. Shhh. Add in the fact that it works over Wi-Fi or your carrier's data network and you quickly realize why the folks who work at satellite radio are getting fitted for sandwich boards. #2 Ah, this is why pandora is #3: ooTunes. It rolls up over 23,000 radio station streams from over 150 countries, sorts and categorizes them, adds album art, lyrics, links to the video on YouTube, and even lets you record streams for offline listening laterÉPricey in the cheapskate world of apps at $5. BTW, before we hit our #1, you can take pride in being a big spender iPhone user: According to AdMob, twice as many of you buy PAID apps than folks on Android or any other smartphone platform. Add in the iPod Touch and itÕs not even a race. Guess I should stop calling you cheapskates. OK, what's the #1 iPhone App according to you and us here at CNET? It's...what? Angry Birds! A gaming phenomenon that lets you put a bunch of cranky birds to work hating on everything as you launch them Jackass-like into stuff and other little creatures, what have you. Stupid? Yeah it is! But I bet you canÕt stop. And there are something like 150 levels so by the time you exhaust this one you will have grooves in your screen. 99 cents or snag the free lite version. OK, there you go, 5 MORE apps to put on your iPhone or iPod Touch, to keep the chick with the watermelons company. I am Brian Cooley, see you next time.
