The Week's Best iPhone AppsS

Shine: It's a weather app that doesn't suck and is really pretty. Seriously! Shine is a beaut, when you bring it up, it gives the current weather in clear text with an enjoyable cartoon graphic. The bottom displays the forecast (which is side swipeable to see the rest of the 7 days) with high/low temperatures, precipitation and again, enjoyable cartoon graphic. It keeps things simple and to the point. Not for weather nerds, though. $1.

Oh, Ranger! ParkFinder: Oh, Ranger! has curated a list of parks where you can partake in twenty different outdoor activities. It's your virtual guide to the outdoors-you fire up the app, plug in your location (or let it locate you) and either see which parks are near you or find an activity you want to do to filter out the parks that let you do it. It's awesome. You can't run out of things to do or places to go with this app. Once you find the park you want, the app will give you a brief history about the place, activity descriptions, a phone number to call and directions courtesy of Google Maps. Free

BoxyTunes: If you have a Dropbox account and use it to store music and podcasts, BoxyTunes makes it easy to grab those audio files on the go. BoxyTunes syncs up with your Dropbox account and lets you download music stored inside for playback on your iPhone or iPad. $2


RecognizeMe: RecognizeMe, a new jailbreak app, uses your iPhone 4's front-facing camera to scan your mug whenever you want to unlock your phone. Is it as discreet as tapping to enter? No-you probably couldn't subtly scan your face at dinner for some mid-meal texts. But it's surely a hell of a lot more secure, assuming you don't get sucked into some sort of Face/Off terrorism scenario. Jailbreak app.

Zaarly: It's like Craigslist but prettier and made for the iPhone. The app connects buyers who post what they want to buy and sellers who post what they want to sell. Obviously only works if people around you are using it. Free
