3 Top iPhone Apps for 2009 Till Date


Within a year’s span, the App Store has been packed with more than 60,000 different kind of applications specially designed for the iPhone and iPod Touch. At the beginning of June this year, the store already crossed 50,000 apps and now, it receives nearly 300 applications every day. For an application storefront this young, the figure is indeed overwhelming. Among the thousands of various sort of applications it is really hard for iPhone users to pick-n-choose the best of the lot. Most consumers usually rely on the ratings provided by Apple and the iTunes Store. On iTunes, the ‘New and Noteworthy’ and the top applications are listed categorically, which surely help most iPhone users to make up their minds.

Since, this rating is based completely on unit sales; it quite disturbingly gives lead to the apps worth $0.99. This however, is extremely annoying and discouraging for most big iPhone developers as they back out from putting high budgets and serious resources for developing really useful applications, which in turn does injustice to the millions of deserving users. Apple, attempts to offset the ninety-nine cent gimmicks with a ‘Top Application List’, which may be helpful for customers but doesn’t actually do justice to the App Store.

However, there are few third-party services and tools under process, which would help users to make the right choices and explore the App Store in the best possible way. Following is a list of 3 top applications of this year so far. This rating has been derived from the popularity, usefulness and demand of the applications.

  • Slacker Radio – This is probably one of the most practical iPhone music apps after Pandora. It carries a huge catalog and offers Premium accounts with features that users have long been loathing about. As soon as you create an account on slacker.com, the application starts streaming music to you. With numerous amazing features and options, Slacker Radio is undoubtedly one of the best music apps that any iPhone app developer has ever created for this platform.

  • Hey Where Are You – This is an extremely well-designed social networking application that helps you to keep a track on your friends, colleagues or family whereabouts. This amazing location service application rightly utilizes Apple’s new Push Notification service to notify users about the location of the person they wish to track down.

  • Bento – Bento is an amazing productivity application that allows you to organize your busy schedule in one single iPhone application. iPhone developer FileMaker Inc. has bought Bento, one of the most popular personal database into iPhone and iPod Touch to make life a bit easier for iPhone users. With extremely convenient features and easy-to-use functionalities, Bento by far is one of the best of its kind.
