What Apps Should I Download For My iPhone?

Lifehacker released their ‘Lifehacker Pack for iPhone’ this week, so I figured in honor of their list, we’d go ahead and compile a nice group of lists recommending you the best apps around. Whether your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch is brand new, or maybe you just got a brand spanking new iTunes gift card and are itching to spend it on something, we could all use a good list to point us in the right direction from time to time. As you might imagine, there’s alot of crossover between these lists, so pick your favorite and go to town!

And of course, don’t forget to check out our growing list of reviews for iPhone apps, iPhone games, and iPad games. And as always, if you’d like us to review a game or app for you, just let us know in the comments. You still have a few days left to get yourself entered into our contest to win a $25 iTunes gift card!

Philippe Keyaerts’ Small World has made quite the splash with the release of its iPad version, and with good reason. Small World is a near perfect example of the way table top gaming should be done on the iPad; crisp graphics, smooth gameplay, easy to follow instructions, and excellent replay value. Did I mention replay value? My partner in crime Fred and I sat down and played 5 matches back to back and still could’ve played more if it weren’t for having lives and responsibility in the real world. I suppose this infatuation could be the result of us being easily entertained… but that aside, I really do think it’s a great game.

Prior to downloading the iPad version of Small World, I’d never heard of it, let alone that it was a board game, but now I’m hooked. And I think you will be too. Unless your hate strategy games, in which case, why are you reading this review?
