Best Alarm Clock for iPhone

Your iPhone or iPod touch may come with a Clock app, but it's a pretty bare-bones offering. Fortunately, upgrading to a better clock application isn't that expensive, and Best Alarm Clock more than lives up to its name.

EgretList for iPhone

If you're a user of the Evernote, this to-do list manager will appeal to you with its ability to sync to-do items, notebooks, and tags with the information storage service.

Firefox Home for iPhone

Don't confuse this app from Mozilla as a replacement for your iPhone's built-in browser. But if you just want a way to access Firefox data like opened tabs, bookmarks, and browsing history from your mobile device, there’s no better solution.

Battery Manager Pro for iPhone

This app's strongest suit is its power management features, telling you how much battery life you have left for certain tasks. The benefits of the app's battery maintenance capabilities are less noticeable.

EasyWriter Pro for iPhone

Even in the iOS 4 era, this well-designed app has value, adding capabilities like spell-check, auto-text, and snippets to the iPhone's e-mailing composition tools. It's a particularly welcome addition to older iPhones that don't support the iOS 4 update.

Atomic Web Browser for iPhone and iPad

The beauty of this mobile Web browser may leave much to be desired, but the brawn -- in the form of power features and customizable options -- is present in full-force.

Fast Contacts for iPhone

For users who want more than what the iPhone's Contacts app provides by default, Fast Contacts is a decent contact manager that certainly deserves a look.

iCurrency Pad for iPhone and iPad

This hybrid app does the job of converting currency quickly and efficiently, no matter what device you use. And at $1, the price is right for this hybrid app.

JOutliner for iPhone

This outliner app is very clunky and hard-to-use. It's also hampered by a lackluster interface and limited functionality.

NoteMaster for iPhone

If you're looking for a feature-rich note-taker for your iPhone or iPod touch, NoteMaster certainly fits the bill. But there are more elegant options available in the App Store.

Note Taker for iPhone

Looking for an alternative to the iPhone's on-screen keyboard? This fascinating app lets you jot down handwritten notes by dragging your finger across the screen of the iPhone or iPod touch.

Simplenote for iPhone

This clean-looking, easy-to-use app is superior to the iPhone's built-in Notes offering. Simplenote makes it easy to jot down notes on the go and then get that information onto your computer.

News Fuse USA for iPhone

Having 54 news sources in one app is definitely convenient, and News Fuse USA delivers them in a snappy interface. But the absence of customization and social features is too noticeable.
