Best Apps For IPhone 4

So, the iPhone 4 has been out for a couple of weeks now and one of its main features is the ‘Retina Display’. Basically, a super clear screen which is great for videos, games, YouTube etc.

The first wave of developers are starting to release the apps which are really going to demonstrate how much better this screen is than on iPhone 3GS and older models.

Asides from the increased portability, slicker design and multi-task capabilities of the iPhone 4, the retina display screen is the real ‘wow’ factor when you show it off to friends and colleagues. So you need to load it up with some sweet apps to make them drool at the crystal clear screen:

1. Paper Toss

So simple, so addictive. this game has been around for years and as of a few days ago was given a complete overhaul by BackFlip studios to ‘sexify it’ for the iPhone 4. the results have to be seen to be believed and I don’t think the screen shots really do it justice. it instantly made it one of the best looking apps on my iPhone.

2. Arounder

Looking for potential holiday destinations? maybe you got drunk in Milan and didn’t get around to any actual sightseeing? Well, Arounder is a cool app that lets you take 360 degree tours of hundreds of destinations from around the globe. from a deserted beach in Tahiti to the Sydney Opera House, this app delivers you some beautiful landmarks and scenery in crystal clear resolution on your iPhone 4.

3. Let’s Golf

Let’s Golf is one of the top downloaded sports apps and has never looked so clear in all its cartoonish glory than on the iPhone 4. although the developers have not released an official update, it still looks fantastic on the iPhone 4 retina display.

4. Sim City

Memories of Sim City on the SNES or Sim City 3000 will come flooding back with this full version of Sim City on your iPhone. Very playable and perfectly scaled down with graphics given a decent boost by the iPhone 4, its one of the first apps your friends will want to see in action when you are showing off your new phone.

5. iMovie

For all the Mac users out there familiar with iMovie, it’s time to get excited because Apple’s flagship app has been re designed specifically for the iPhone OS4 operating system and maintains much of its functionality in the new portable format. the iPhone 4 can record in up to 720p definition so with a bit of editing for iMovie, you really can produce some great looking movies.

We expect that a lot of apps are currently undergoing a visual overhaul as we speak and in the first couple of weeks we already have some stunning looking apps. we anticipate as developers become more comfortable with the OS4 operating system, the best iPhone 4 apps are yet to come. but for now, download the above apps and bask in their visual beauty. (And make some friends jealous along the way).
