Posted on by admin | in longhorn

The mobile device in your pocket doesn’t just allow you to send and receive calls and messages, it’s also a potential powerhouse of applications that let you stay connected, experience life to the fullest and boost your productivity. Unfortunately, it can require a rather hefty upfront investment to procure one of these phones, much less keep current with all of the apps in the marketplace. However, while there is a seemingly endless array of paid apps in the iTunes App Store, you may be surprised by how many infinitely useful and fun apps are completely free of charge. These are ten of the apps that you’re likely to find yourself turning to several times throughout the day that won’t make a dent in your bank account.

  • Facebook – The same social networking site you use from your desktop or laptop PC is also available through the iPhone with the free Facebook app. Stay on top of your newsfeed, keep tabs on the people who mean the most to you and exchange messages with your nearest and dearest, all from your phone. You can also capture and upload photos with the built-in iPhone camera, allowing you to share snapshots throughout the day.
  • Pandora – Life just seems better when it’s set to music, and this free app allows you to customize the soundtrack to your life. Enter a song you love into the search field and Pandora will build a playlist around other songs that share common features. Discover new acts, rediscover forgotten favorites and set the mood for every occasion, all for free with the help of this app.
  • Shazam – How many times have you heard a new song on the radio or in an establishment that you like, but aren’t able to identify? This free and amazing app recognizes even the most obscure tracks, helping you to name that tune so you can easily find it for download in the iTunes store.
  • Skype – Even though most of today’s smartphone plans through major providers offer unlimited talk time, they don’t always offer unlimited international calling, and video chat has yet to be integrated as a standard feature offered by major providers. That’s where the free Skype application comes in handy. Enjoy a face-to-face session with anyone in the world, completely free of charge.
  • Flashlight – You may not always have a flashlight in your pocket when you’re in a dimly-lit space and in need a bit of light. If you have this free app installed, however, your smartphone can double as a portable lighting device. More than just convenience, Flashlight also offers a measure of safety and security, so make sure that you leave room for this one while you’re downloading a slew of new and free apps.
  • Google Maps – The Apple and Google wars left this favorite navigational app out of the App Store briefly, but now it’s back and better than ever. If you’re not a fan of the native navigational feature built in to your iPhone, snag this free one from Google today.
  • Use Your Handwriting – Sometimes you’d just rather add a personal touch to your notes and to-do lists, which is where Use Your Handwriting comes in handy. You can also set reminders for your notes and lend your personality to messages you send to loved ones. The app comes without length constraints, so scribble to your heart’s content.
  • Free Wi-Fi Finder – Most of the functions that make your iPhone great require connectivity to truly shine, and you won’t want to use that 4G coverage everywhere you go. In order to save money and data usage, you’ll need to take advantage of free Wi-Fi connections whenever you can. This free app helps you do just that by making it simpler and quicker to locate hotspots.
  • Touch Mouse – Turn your iPhone into a trackpad or keyboard for your computer and a remote control for PCs and Macs connected to television displays and simplify your life in one fell swoop. This free app is one of the more popular and highly rated in the App Store, and is sure to give you more than your money’s worth in functionality and productivity.
  • Dropbox – Whether you’re sharing large files with those closest to you or simply in need of extra storage, the free Dropbox app simplifies the process significantly.
