Georgia's most-used iPhone and iPad apps of 2011

Georgia's most-used iPhone and iPad apps of 2011

So to get it out of the way, while I'm running iOS 5 on my iPad I'm still running iOS 4 on my iPhone. I need my jailbreak, the iOS 5 untethered jailbreak just went live yesterday, and I haven't had time to update yet. That's why many of my apps, and a couple of my most-used apps of 2011, other than Mail, Safari, etc. are mainly jailbreak apps. Oh, and games!


The original Notification Center, it's still way more useful and not only lets me keep track of everything but lets me quickly preview messages so I can stay on top of things during my typically hectic days.


Apple's stock 4 apps in the dock simply aren't enough for me. I want more and Infinidock provides for just that. Thanks to Infinidock, I can only keep Mail, Safari and Phone at the ready, but App Store and iTunes Store, and many, more more as well. (Yes, I download a lot of apps and music, but I can use the excuse that it's my job!). Just add all you want and scroll away!

Twitter for iPhone

I don't use Twitter that much, so even though Twitter for iPhone went through a major change recently, it's still my go to Twitter app. It lets me see my replies and write my tweets and that's pretty much all I need. (Though I do find Tweetbot adorable!)


I love strategy games and while I still played Plants vs. Zombies and Field Runners last year, Chuzzle has been my main addiction of late. It's cute, it's easy to get into and out of if you only have a short amount of time, and it's by Popcap so how can you go wrong?


Netflix update brings new UI for iPad

I have a digital antenna and Windows Media Center PVR for most of my day-to-day television viewing, but for pretty much everything else I use Netflix on the Apple TV. It has great old shows like Damages and the original X-Men cartoon. If you have young kids, Netflix is hours of entertainment.
