According to the Usage statistics infographic of 2012, iPhone users spent around 69% of their time on apps. There are thousands of iPhone apps available in different categories like technology, gaming, news, photography, social networking, security, etc. There maybe thousands of apps available, but only some are worth downloading. You need to sort through hundreds of free apps to find the one that suits your requirements. With numerous apps being launched every day, it’s pretty hard to choose the best among them. Here is the list of apps that I found best.
Let’s start with the best app for news – BBC News
The BBC News app is an elegant, attractive and information-packed app from one of the leading news organizations. This well organized app delivers the latest in global news from a network of world-class journalists. The main page of the app looks clean with a breaking news ticker.

Let’s move to the best Social Networking app – Facebook
Facebook, the world's biggest social network has rolled out the best social networking app - Facebook App for iPhone.

You can share photos, updates, like and comment on posts, with the latest version of this app available at the Apple iTunes store for free.
When it comes to the best photography app, I would choose – Adobe Photoshop Express
Adobe Photoshop Express, a free app available at the iTunes store lets you capture any moment and edit it creatively on your iPhone. It's a set of photo editing tools that makes editing a fun task. You also have In-app tips that can be an added advantage. The Photoshop Express app lets you adjust exposure, saturation, and contrast effects on your picture. In simple words, the Photoshop Express app is one among the most powerful photo editing apps for the iPhone.
Next in the list comes the best gaming app – CSR Racing
Gaming apps are the most attractive iPhone apps ever. CSR Racing is one such app that lets you race your dream car along deserted city streets. The stunning graphics give you an entirely new racing experience. You can upgrade the cars - Audi R8, BMW M3 and Chevy Corvette, with nitrous injection, racing tires and turbos to compete with your opponents. This gaming app, designed for the iPhone and iPad is available for free at the iTunes store.
Last but not the least, comes the best security app - Lookout
Security is what iPhone users usually look out for. Lookout has finally ended the iPhone users search with their security app. Lookout, a pioneer in mobile security suites, offers the Lookout app that secures your iPhone from hackers. It alerts you while using unprotected networks and also instructs you not to send any valuable credentials over the network. Apart from this, the Lookout app also helps you locate your lost iPhone and backs up your contact list. Lookout is one among the best security apps available at the Apple iTunes store for free.
And that's not all; these are just the top apps, and you still have many like the Dropbox - the service and productivity tool, Converter Plus – the all-in-one calculation app, Airport Utility – The app that controls your Wi-Fi network, etc.
Choosing the best from all these free iPhone apps is indeed a Herculean task.
