Today we're going to list 3 apps that if you don't have these apps on your iPhone, you need to drop everything and get them. Yes, they are that useful!
Undercover – $4.99
Undercover is designed to help you find your lost (or stolen) iPhone. While Apple's MobileMe can do the same thing (and run you $99/year), Undercover requires a free account at Orbicule's Undercover Center and every time the application is run, it stores the phone's location and IP information to this account. Accessing your account gives you the ability to track the device.
If your phone is stolen, you can log into your account and create a well-worded Push Message that may convince the thief to follow the instructions on the notification or you could even put your contact information through, hoping that whoever has your phone would be willing to contact you.
TouchTodo (Sync to Calendar) – $2.99
Do you get lost or confused when you have a whole bunch of things to do? How about your organization skills… any good with those?
TouchToDo is a To Do list for your iPhone that will sync all of your To Do items with your Google Calendars which, in turn, you can set up to sync with your iPhone's native calendar. This is the To Do List app that I've been waiting for.
Not only will this app sync with Google Calendar and create events for you so that you can have everything right on your iPhone's calendar, but you can also set up notifications. Unlike other apps that claim to offer Push reminders, these reminders are not stored on a server somewhere and then sent wirelessly to your iPhone. Instead the reminders can be used regardless of wireless (or 3G) connectivity.
Note: there is currently not a way to sync the Google To Do lists with this app.
Perfect for both the iPhone and the iPod Touch!
RedLaser – $1.99
RedLaser allows you to comparison shop no matter where you are – as long as you are connected to the Internet.
The key? RedLaser is an accurate barcode scanning device that can read any barcode using your iPhone's camera. It them will search for prices using Amazon and Google Product Search.
You can email a list of products to someone, send barcodes as email attachments and, coming up, you'll be able to search a specific website using a user-provided URL.
This is great for the holidays when saving money counts!
