“An iPhone is an iPhone” and the huge number of applications available at App Store is certainly one of the major reason for this saying. iPhones and other iOS devices support only exclusive applications that cannot be run other operating systems like Android or Windows. This provides you a sense of exclusivity. However, iPhone app developers have produced millions of applications thus far and it is very tough to find an application on the App Store, if you do not know exactly what you are looking for. There are hundreds and thousands of applications in every category at the store. Music, games, photography, social networking, communication, etc. are some of the most surfed categories.
You can download or purchase iPhone apps available at App Store only if you have:
s iPhone 3G or above
s itunes 7.7 or above
s iOS 2.0 or above
s iTunes Account
If you meet all the requirements, you can launch the App Store on your PC or iOS device to find the best iPhone applications. If it is not running then a click on the iTunes Store button at the top right will open the desired link. At iTunes Store, you can either search for the best iPhone applications or browse categories to see which you like.
Searching: Type the name of the application in the search box at the top right of the window, if you know. Else, you can click on the App Store tab in the row of options at the top. At the homepage of App Store, you can either enter the name of the application or its type such as business, communication, music, games, etc. Select the option iPhone Apps to exclude applications for other iOS devices and subsequently narrow the search results. There are more filter options such as most popular, free, premium, etc.
Browsing: When the exact name or category of the application is not known, you have to browse for the best iPhone applications. Still, browsing can be narrowed by selecting categories. Suppose you want a good music application first. Choose music as the category to browse only music applications. More the filter criteria you enter according to your preference, easier the iPhone apps browsing will be for you. However, you can choose the appropriate option to view all the applications, if you are interested in random and spontaneous selection.
You can either download or purchase the iPhone application that you liked. Free applications get downloaded and installed immediately from the downloaded link provided with each application. Premium applications can be owned only paying the charge first. iOS runs applications exclusively, so, they have to be synchronised with the device before they can be used. Make sure that you go through the description reviews and requirement of the iPhone application you want. Accidental deletion of applications is not your mistake alone. Relax because deleted applications can be reinstalled, including the premium applications, for free. You can skip the hassle of synchronisation by setting your device to automatically download new iPhone apps.
