With hundreds of thousands applications available on iPhone, today this smart device promises to do everything possible for consumers – communications, business, fun… you name it. These six new apps, however, make iPhone really appealing.
Here they are:
1. Fashion: A leading online destination for fashion, eBay, has introduced the eBay Fashion app for the Apple iPhone.
It aims to deliver a personalized shopping experience where shoppers can browse, buy — and virtually “try on” — items from a large online selection of new, designer, branded and vintage merchandise.
2. Hospitality: Functionalities of the new Waldorf Astoria iPhone application include the ability to peruse the brand’s 22 hotels worldwide through a full image gallery, read the unique history of each hotel, search for rates and offers, book the property of choice or modify existing reservations.
Gold and Diamond HHonors members also have the exclusive opportunity to check into guestrooms up to 36 hours in advance using an e-check-in feature.
This application enhances Hilton Worldwide’s portfolio of iPhone and iPod touch applications that were rolled out in the fall of last year.
World in Your Hand – The iPhone Promise.

3. Modern Art: The new application provides users with access to 32,000 works of art; a dictionary of art terms and a database of artist bios; calendar information for exhibitions, film screenings, and events. It also comes with info on audio tours, including special tours for children, teens, and the visually impaired.
The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) has introduced the MoMA App for iPhone.
The app also offers users a chance to snap photos inside the Museum and send them as postcards, and allows visitors to select tracks from their own music libraries to listen to while touring the Museum.
4. Shopping: Shopkick, a new location-based shopping app for iPhone rewards shoppers just for visiting stores. Rewards are delivered simply for walking into participating stores with the Shopkick app open.
In addition, at thousands of stores across America, smaller rewards are offered for “checking in” and for scanning products.
5. Entertainment: Netflix has introduced its free Netflix App, allowing Netflix members on plans starting at $8.99 a month to instantly watch TV episodes and movies streamed to their iPhone or iPod touch.
The company says Netflix App delivers a high-quality viewing experience, a broad array of movie and TV choices and a clean, intuitive interface.
It is available via both Wi-Fi and 3G networks. TV episodes and movies are organized into a variety of categories based on members’ personal preferences, popular genres, new arrivals and members’ individual instant Queues.
6. Sports: Nike has unveiled its new Nike+ GPS App on the App Store. The app is engineered to operate seamlessly between GPS and an accelerometer for an accurate and entertaining runner’s tool.
It allows runners to use their iPhone to visually map every run while tracking pace, distance, time and calories-burned.
They can also stay motivated with instant feedback during and after each run from athletes like Paula Radcliffe and Lance Armstrong, and comedian Tracy Morgan.
Then iPhone moves ahead. The new device in the iPhone family, Apple iPhone 4, features FaceTime, which makes video calling easy. And Apple’s new Retina display is for high resolution display for better display of text, images and video.
Offered in a new design of glass and stainless steel, it is claimed to be the thinnest smartphone in the world.
