25 Best Free iPhone apps 2012


Of thousands of applications in the app store, here I compile a list of 25 apps for your iPhone 2012. Recently, the App store had million applications and billion app downloads. All the applications are choosen carefully and approved. Always iPhone app store is for the quality of apps and not the quantity wise. Most of the useful apps for daily usage is free for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.

If you have an Android phone, there is a website Antiroid where is offers best free apps for all your paid apps. It clones the android market place with equal free apps for the paid android apps. I don’t think we have a similar one for iPhone apps. Instead, there are websites that offers huge deals on Paid iPhone/iPad apps.

2012, Social apps play an important role. So I would like to list out the major 4 iPhone apps that we use in day to day activities.
