Another year, another set of favorite apps to choose from. I noticed a lot of my favorite 2009 apps managed to survive another year while others were replaced.
This is a list of my favorite iOS Apps, mainly concentrating on iPhone apps and some iPad apps. Waiel couldn’t make his list but he told me that his favorite app is MoneyBook.
Here are the apps in no particular order, a + indicates a universal app:
â€¢ MoneyBook for managing your expenses.
â€¢ Bills for scheduling your bills. Excellent for your STC/Mobily phone bills.
â€¢ Twittelator Pro. Still my favorite Twitter client on the iPhone.
â€¢ HootSuite + is another Twitter service, excellent for managing multiple accounts from multiple devices.
â€¢ Birdbrain. Twitter statistics.
â€¢ Foodspotting. It’s instagram for food.
â€¢ Bing. US App Store. Microsoft Bing’s maps for Saudi Arabia is better than Google’s.
â€¢ Waze +. Social network for building a map and traffic status. Still need a lot of work for the Saudi map.
â€¢ Trapster is a speed camera report system. It’s been popular recently with the introduction of Saher.
â€¢ Gowalla for social check-ins, recently update improved the interface and added support for Foursquare check-ins.
