Best Iphone Appsby J D Biersdorfer
Synopses & Reviews
With over 250,000 apps to choose from in Apple's App Store, you can make your iPhone or iPod Touch do just about anything you can imagine — and almost certainly a few things you would never think of. While it's not hard to find apps, it is frustratingly difficult to find the the best ones.
That's where this new edition of Best iPhone Apps comes in. New York Times technology columnist J.D. Biersdorfer has stress-tested hundreds of the App Store's mini-programs and hand-picked more than 200 standouts to help you get work done, play games, stay connected with friends, explore a new city, get in shape, and more.
With your device, you can use your time more efficiently with genius productivity apps, or fritter it away with deliriously fun games. Play the part of a local with brilliant travel apps, or stick close to home with apps for errands, movie times, and events. Get yourself in shape with fitness programs, or take a break and find the best restaurants in town. No matter how you want to use your iPhone or iPod Touch, Best iPhone Apps helps you unlock your glossy gadget's potential.
Discover great apps to help you:
A best-of-the-App-Store guidebook to the most essential iPhone Apps — perfect for anyone trying to decide which of the 30,000-plus apps to buy for their iPhone or iPod Touch. This book uses a shopping catalog-style approach, similar to "Lucky" (a fashion magazine billed as the "Ultimate Shopping Guide") or the old J. Peterman catalogs. The iPhone App Book will be great for browsing, great for readers who want to find out which apps are actually worth their time, and great for sorting through the overwhelming number of choices in the App Store.
With over 50,000 iPhone apps to choose from, there\'s a mind-boggling number of ways to make your favorite device do just about anything you can imagine — and almost certainly a few things you would never think of. While it\'s not hard to find apps for your iPhone or iPod Touch, it\'s frustratingly difficult to find the best ones.
Best iPhone Apps guides the way, shining the light on over 200 gee-whiz apps that delight, empower, and entertain. Author Josh Clark stress-tested thousands of titles from the App Store emporium to hand-pick apps that will make the biggest difference in every aspect of your life: at work, on the town, at play, at home, and on the road.
Capitalize on your time with genius productivity apps, or fritter it away with deliriously fun games. However you use your iPhone or iPod Touch, Best iPhone Apps shows you how to unlock its full potential and make the most of your glossy gadget.
