Flipboard

We've popped the mighty Flipboard in our news and reference section, but it could have easily appeared with the other social apps - because social networks are where it sources its articles. According to the team behind the app, Flipboard "is on a quest to transform how people discover, view and share content by combining the beauty and ease of print with the power of social media".

Flipboard is a must-have app. Beautifully tactile and responsive, it makes reading anything on your iPhone an absolute pleasure, one ideal for exploring both favourite news sources and discovering new and inspirational content, including wonderful user-curated personalised magazines.

Yahoo Weather

After BBC Weather, here's another brilliant and free alternative to Apple's own Weather app for the iPhone.

Yahoo Weather is a vast improvement on Apple's (Yahoo-powered) preinstalled Weather iPhone app, combining plenty of weather-junkie data with attractive views of the UK and beyond.

Yahoo's offering stands out amongst the crowd thanks to accurate forecasts, good balance of information and an attractive yet simple design.
