Miscellaneous Apps

Google for iPhone

This includes Google’s most popular mobile apps from its growing collection: Search Google using your voice or based upon your location detected via GPS, Wi-Fi, or cell towers.

Explore Google Earth right from the palm of your hand. Check your Gmail email account. Use Google Maps to search for local businesses and driving, transit, or walking directions. Watch or upload YouTube videos. Use the new location-based tagging app called Buzz.

Google Sync

If you use Google's Gmail, contacts, or calendar features, download this free app to synchronize them with your phone. Then you can have the same info online and your phone.

Keeper Password and Data Vault

Tired of trying to remember passwords of everything? Or do you already use a password manager on the desktop?

Create long, unique, and secure passwords with this free app in the palm of your hand. Store and retrieve them safely when needed anywhere. Purchase another service and keep everything synchronized with your computers.

RSS Runner

If you use RSS feeds to view news and updates on your desktop, you can also take advantage of them on your iPhone or iPod touch with this free app. Though AD-supported, the advertisements can be turned off.

Wi-Fi Finder

This free Wi-Fi hotspot directory is from JiWire, claiming to be the largest directory of free and commercial Wi-Fi Internet spots, with more than 200,000 locations in 135 countries worldwide!

This is great when traveling. Using your phone’s GPS or tower-triangulation, it will tell you the closest spots around. If you have hotspot service, search by provider.

There Are Many More!

We have only just begun; there are many more useful apps out there for IT professionals. Find more on your iPhone or iPod Touch or browse the iTunes App Store from your computer.

Plus if you want to experiment, you can access even more apps by jailbreaking your device and using third-party repositories such as Cydia.
