AOL Radio

Four letters: KCRW. AOL Radio pipes in the legendary LA station and for this we are thankful. More »


Generative, ambient music by Brian Eno. If I need to say more, it’s also a mini-sequencer: Drop your finger on the liquidy pastel screen, play a note, make simple loops. Music For Airports that you can make yourself. In an airport, even. More »

City Transit

Ditto here for NYC. Even for locals, quick access to a subway map is always a good thing, plus constantly changing service outages are impossible to keep track of, without an app like this. And if you’re feeling old-timey, a vintage MTA map is here too. More »


It seems simple-you can type URLs in landscape mode with its larger, more luxuriously spaced keyboard. Why not emails? EasyWriter solved it. More »

Google Earth

The same amazing Earth touring app found on the desktop, now spinnable via multi touch. Honestly if someone told me two years ago I would have a functional Google Earth app on my phone, I wouldn’t have believed them. This is now. More »

Google Mobile

Google Mobile was a solid app (but not particularly essential)-and then came voice search. More »


Who knew multitouch is the perfect interface for stitching photos together into panoramas? It is. Plus if the photo you just took doesn’t work, toss it out and take another one immediately. A paid version adds even more features. More »


Best internet radio app, hands down. Smartly auto-suggests music based on other artists you like. Both on the go and while at home. Streams well over EDGE and 3G. Free. What more could you ask for? More »

While not the sexiest apps, a good solid voice recorder can be incredibly handy-especially if you are a handsome FBI investigator in the town of Twin Peaks. More »


One of the first apps we saw, and still among the best in terms of usefulness. If you use iTunes frequently at home and especially if you listen away from your desk via a stereo hookup or Airport Express, you need the Remote. More »

Realistic dice physics meets ancient Egyptian gods in one of the more addicting iPhone games you’ll see. More »

Jailbreak: NES Emulator

Even though the Jailbreak community isn’t the exciting Wild West it was before the App Store, there’s still one important thing jailbreakers can do that app store prisoners can’t: play Nintendo games. More »

Banned: NetShare

Mad genius designer Keita Takahashi left the series years ago, but Katamari is still among my favorite game franchises of all time (and I’m not alone), and it’s a natural fit for the iPhone’s tilt-controls. More »


Can’t live in San Francisco without this app. I use it everyday to see when trains / buses are coming. Even if I am sitting at my computer I choose to look up the train / bus schedule via Routesy on my iPhone because it’s just that much simpler. More »


This just doesn’t get old: hold your phone to the air to grab the song playing at the supermarket (or being hummed by your friend), and have it identified in a few seconds. We live in a privileged age. More »

A full version of Sim City 2000 on the iPhone? Yes. Oh yes. More »

Brian likes this app because deep down, he’s just a Japanese schoolgirl who wants to slap sticker graphics on photos of his dog. If you share this desire, Sketches: it’s for you too. More »
