Today's four iPhone app reviews don't quite fit into a theme, except that they are all excellent applications. GV Mobile brings the entire functionality of Google Voice to your iPhone. Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince is a promotional app for the new movie, but it has some awesome features that Potter fans would love. Talkins SMS reads back the letters you type on the iPhone's keyboard so you can type without looking, and Camera Zoom v1.1 allows you to zoom on the phone's camera (up to 4x).

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
by Warner Bros.
Sure, it's just a promotional app, but if you're a Potter fan, then this app will help you get your wizard on. You can view clips from the film, and explore other film content. You can interact with the 3D water pensieve (Dumbledore's memory viewing machine). You can insert moving footage into an interactive Daily Prophet. There's also lots of pictures that you can save as wallpaper. If you're a fan, it's a great time killer.
Talking SMS (Texting while on the road)

Talkins SMS is a simple app with a simple function. Everytime you hit a key on the keyboard, the iPhone speaks the letter outloud. The idea is for you to be able to text without looking at your phone (which would explain why they put "texting while on the road" in the title). Unfortunately, the app doesn't read your sentences back…which would be much more useful.
