3. Flashlight., v1.3, Seller: John Haney
by John Haney

The cleverly-named Flashlight sports a just-as-clever design. Flashlight fills your screen with bright white to illuminate your world when you find yourself in a dark spot or concert. Also has pixel test and strobe light modes! On-screen instructions when holding down anywhere for a short time. To prevent unintentionally opening the Settings view, you now hold down for 2 seconds to open the Settings view. Added sliding animation for the Settings view. User requested: New Emergency Red/Black/Blue strobe mode (in addition to the Red/White/Blue mode). Sliding left and right no longer causes the brightness to dim unintentionally

WARNING: Contains a strobe light feature

4. EasyWriter, v1.0, Seller: Wellbeyond Inc.
by Saxorama

EasyWriter makes it easy to write emails using a bigger keyboard in landscape mode.
The iPhone's Mail and Notes applications can only compose messages in a vertically-oriented perspective, with the keyboard just a footnote at the bottom. EasyWriter kicks you into landscape-mode, freeing your fingers to amble luxuriously across the wider letters. Just open EasyWriter, turn your iPhone sideways, type your message, choose your recipient, and click Send to Mail.

5. Facebook, v2.0, Seller: Facebook
by Facebook

For Facebookers (um, everyone, right? 66 of my Friends) it's essential—a beautifully designed, uber-functional implementation that's always with you.
The mobile uploads (with tagging) is almost worth it enough—now I can see whenever Jesus Diaz Blanco's eats a cookie he is proud of, or sits down to a boozy brunch. You can too!
Get it here babies.

6. Evernote, v1.5.1, Seller: Evernote
by Evernote

Already a popular web service and found on other devices, Evernote does something that every location-aware cameraphone should be able to do: quickly take and store geotagged photos so you can remember stuff.

7. LinkedIn, v1.0.2, Seller: LinkedIn
by LinkedIn

With more than 30 million users representing 150 industries around the world, LinkedIn is a fast-growing professional networking site that allows members to create business contacts, search for jobs, and find potential clients. Individuals have the ability to create their own professional profile that can be viewed by others in their network, and also view the profiles of their own contacts.
The app features four different sections: the main page, connections, search, and status: The main page of the iPhone app displays a news feed that shows updates from your LinkedIn contacts - things like whether they've updated their profile, changed positions, asked a question, added a new contact, etc. The "Connections" section displays your LinkedIn contacts in a way that's very much like the iPhone's built-in contact list. From the "Search" section, you can search for contacts by name, keyword, title, or company. The "Status" section allows you to update your LinkedIn status, which many people use to announce what they're working on. Others have this hooked up via Ping.fm or a similar app so it's updated with their latest tweet.

Google Mobile App gives you a single text box to search through your contacts and the web. As soon as you start typing, it scours Google for things to help you. These could be typing suggestions, website suggestions or easy access to a search you made before. Google Mobile App even searches as you type so that you see results as soon as you finish typing. Over time, the App remembers the things you do most and puts them at the top. Finally, Google Mobile App also uses the My Location feature to detect your current location and show nearby businesses on a map.
If you use other Google mobile products you'll find them through the "Explore more" button - all in one place.
