The iPhone Apps Everyone Should Have (Updated)

The end of the month is here, and that means it's time to do a little housekeeping on our list of the absolute best iPhone apps. Who will be inducted? Who will unceremoniously get the boot?



Google Voice For iPhone: What kind of bizarro alternate universe are we living in? Well, it's one with an official Google Voice iPhone app. It's missing some advanced features like calling groups and scheduling, but the important stuff—texting and calling—works beautifully. Free.


Rage HD: The highly anticipated first person shooter on rails from the guys who made Doom and Quake is finally here—Rage HD might not be anything special in terms of iPhone gameplay, but visually it's one of if not the most impressive iPhone games yet. Even as a tech demo, it's kinda astounding. $2.


Mixologist: The gold medal winner of our best drinking apps battle, Mixologist is an encyclopedic database of drinks searchable in a variety of ways. At some point, you will impress someone by following this app's instructions. $1


2Do: A to-do app on some serious steroids, 2Do can organize parts of your life you didn't even know needed organizing. It has a slick interface and enough features and syncing options to keep even the most fastidious productivity nuts busy. $7



GV Mobile+: Recently something weird happened: Apple started letting Google Voice apps back into the App Store. After a stint in jailbreak purgatory, GV Mobile+ was the best GV app for a while—until the official one dropped.
