While we’ve covered innovative iPhone applications, it’s hard to find uses for an app that imitates musical instruments. However, there are plenty of apps around that simply aim to make life as simple as possible.
One of the more impressive applications around, EverNote allows you to take notes, memos and reminders. But its biggest advantage is in its use of multimedia, allowing users to record notes by voice, post pictures and more.
We swear by Dropbox, and for good reason. This nifty service allows you to share files across multiple devices, as long as an internet connection is at hand.

This RSS reader application allows you to download your Google feeds in one go, making it extremely useful when you’re out of range of a network. All you’ll need is a Google account and you’ll be set.
