iPhone 101: Best Guides, Tips, Tricks, and Apps

Whether your aim is to stay organized and productive, or entertained, the iPhone offers a plethora of useful and amusing apps and capabilities. Learn (or relearn) your way around your iPhone with my favorite selection of guides, tips, tricks, and downloads.

  • 10 Useful iPhone Tips and Tricks — Here are some of the best simple tips for the iPhone. A few may work only on the 3GS (sorry 3G users!), but all are useful and time saving.
  • Five Must-Have iPhone Camera Apps — If you're looking to use your iPhone camera for more than remembering where you parked and goofy pics, invest in a few inexpensive apps to improve its functionality and enhance your pics. There are hundreds of choices available at the iTunes store, but here is a handful that you simply must have. Who can say no to improved pics for less than $10? Certainly not me!
  • Functional and Free iPhone Productivity Apps — Calling all Monica Geller-type personalities! Post-It notes, scribbled lists, and writing on your hand are so '90s. Drop the Sharpie and boot up the computer, iPod Touch, or iPhone to check out some of my favorite free apps from the productivity section of the iTunes Store.
  • 10 Crazy iPhone Apps — There's an iPhone application for everything. Since Apple does reject the odd app here and there, you can be sure that every app goes through a rigorous approval process before making its way to the iTunes store. But there are those that slip through the cracks, like these outrageous, naughty, hilarious — and some all of the above — apps.
