Today our feature iPhone app reviews include iNews, Twitter World, Battery Level, and the famous Family Guy application. iNews is an incredible RSS feed aggregator with a stylish look. Twitter World allows you to have international tweets automatically translated. Battery Level will help you try to fake your iPhone 3G into being an iPhone 3GS, and Family Guy is just plain fun.
iNews is a full featured news reader that allows you to input your favorite websites and have the most recent article presented to you on the front page (images included). Once you tap one of the sites, i.e. The New York Times, you have a full list of news articles with images and all. You might say, "But the NYT has a free app". True, but, this app allows you to bring all
your news sources together in one place. It's extremely convenient, not just for news, but to keep track of all the blogs you read on-the-go.
This application is as simple as can be, yet extremely useful. The new iPhone 3GS has a feature which allows you to tap the battery icon to display the actual percentage of battery left. This free iPhone app will allow you to do the every same thing (but by opening the app rather than tapping the battery.) It's free, it's easy, and it's useful. Sometimes the battery icon is just not accurate enough.

This is the official Fox Family Guy iPhone app. If you're a die hard Family Guy fan, this app is for you. You can watch clips, toss Peter, create a Stewie pin-up, and build your own Freakin' Sweet Video Mix. While you can't watch full episodes, you can watch classic Family Guy clips and rate them. There is an occasional commercial. There are two mini-games in which you can throw Peter around or design your own Stewie. The main part of the application is the Freakin' Sweet Mixer, which allows you to create your own Family Guy video clip mix by dragging clips into a timeline. You can share the mixes.
Twitter World – Read Foreign Tweets
Category: Social Networking
Twitter World has one spectacular function: it allows you to read Tweets written in foreign languages by automatically translating them. If you've been watching the news lately, you've probably heard of the events in Iran being highly integrated into the Twitter universe. Wouldn't it be great to have been able to read the tweets of the Iranian protesters first hand? Too bad they were written in Farsi. That's where Twitter World comes in. Also, if you just have lots of foreign friends, this app is perfect.
