With today’s announcement by Apple of the upcoming release of the new iPhone 5, said to be the last model that Steve Jobs had direct input on prior to his passing, I thought it fitting to start a crowdsourced post that allows us to see who’s using which iPhone apps for what.
My iPhone 4S is fairly minimal right now, but I’m happy to share with you what’s on it, by category. Use the anonymous form below to submit some additional suggestions that I may have missed that readers should take a closer look at.
In the interest of keeping the list short(ish), I am intentionally not including “Games” as a category.
Here’s what’s on my iPhone. What’s on yours?
Things – Todo and Project Management app
Day One – Journal, syncs with Dropbox, iPad and MacBook Pro or Air
Evernote – Notetaking, text & image database. Syncs with iPad and MacBook Pro or Air
Sparrow – Email app
Google app for search

- Shazam (although if you’re reading this and from Shazam, it is _extremely_ confusing that you have so many different types of the same app in the app store. When users are confused, they move on and do not buy. #JustSayin)
(Sandbox is a folder where I store apps I am testing. My rule is that if I don’t like it after 30 days or don’t use it often, it has to get deleted from my iPhone. This prevents me from contracting the infamous “Too many app screens and too many apps virus”)
Scanner Pro (Haven’t decided which one of these I like best yet)
