My Favorite iPhone Apps

There are more than one million Apps available to iPhone users. 75% are total crap. I look at some of the first Apps I bought several years for more than $0.99 and laugh awkwardly at my decisions. Games like StickWars, BMX and Motochaser still sit in a distant folder labelled “games I will never play again but refuse to delete”. The reality is $0.99 wasn’t a lot of money 5 years ago and it’s certainly not a lot of money now. However, after you’ve been burned by mediocre apps a few times spending $0.99 becomes more an issue of pride. Keep your pride intact by sticking with the following Apps (by category):
