It's time for our 3rd Annual blog post on favorite iPhone Apps.
This year we finally upgraded from a iPhone 3GS to the iPhone 5, which is the new standard that most Apps are slowly being updated for.
Please leave thoughts in the comment spot on this post if you agree with any of these selections or if you have other top Apps for readers of this blog to check out. I have a bias for official Apps when it comes to social media.
Because less is more, we have the app name, a short reason why it made the list, along with a link to go to the Apps iTunes store page. The top 8 Apps have videos embeded on them. I wanted to reward developers who update their Apps, so all of these App were updated in 2012. There are a few others that would have made this list, but they have not been updated and their future is uncertain.
