Just like the previous year, it’s time to share with you the best iOS apps for 2010. Some of the apps were on my list last year.
1- Whatsapp: Although it’s a bit buggy lately, I highly depend on this app. Whatsapp is currently the best chatting client available on the iPhone. It’s also available now on other platforms such as the Blackberry and Android. $0.99
2- Twitter: At the beginning I wasn’t sure if I liked the idea behind twitter. I’m now very attached to it. I don’t tweet as much. I just like to follow people. Free
3- Angry Birds: Please! Who doesn’t play Angry Birds? The most annoying, yet addictive game on the App Store $0.99
4- Viber: Now Viber is kind of the new whatsapp, however it’s dedicated for voice calling. You can call whoever is in your phone book and has viber. It’s for free and just like whatsapp and FaceTime, your phone number is your ID- no need to subscribe and you don’t need a unique username. Quite simple. Free
5- O Player: This app opens almost any media format. Many people still don’t know that you can open wmv and rm attachments on the iPhone and iPad! O player can do that for you, but you need to upgrade to iOS 4.0 or higher. $2.99
6- Remote: If you are one of those people who uses their Apple TV’s a lot then I guess your going to like the new Remote app. It allows you to control your Apple TV and your iTunes library from your iPhone or iPad. You need wifi connection to connect. Free
7- 4 Shared: This app will let you stream music from 4shared.com. You can create your own custom playlists, but again you need internet cuz this app is all about streaming. The content is pretty good. You can find almost any song- including Arabic songs too. Free
8- TV U: I use this app to stream live channels. There are many local channels that you can watch on TV U such as Al Watan TV, Al Rai, KTV, Funoon, and more. The streaming quality is excellent. $4.99
9. Eurosport: This app was just updated to include push notifications. It notifies you with the latest scores and unlike other sport apps, the Eurosport push notification service is fast. Free
10. iFiles: Many times especially when I’m on my iPad I get zip attachments or sometimes even I want to send compressed files. iFiles opens zip attachments and can also send zip files. What I love about this app is it allows you to collect many files such as photos, audio, videos, docs, etc and put them all in one file and send them or save them in the app itself for future use. $2.99
Overall, I have to admit that iOS 4.0 filled in many gaps and allowed many apps to shine. Feel free to share your thoughts!
