Now with a taller screen, there’s more joy in the whole experience.

3. CNN – One of the Best iPhone 5 apps

CNN app is one of the best app available for the iPhone 5 and that’s I have added it into the top 10 iPhone 5 apps list. The trusted news site stands for reliable news, delivered and is an old favourite of the Apple stable. In fact, the CNN app was one of the things highlighted in the keynote address at the launch of the iPhone 5 and if that doesn’t convince you this is a good app, what will?

We’re staying with the news and what better than the New York Times? This acclaimed newspaper makes its way to your phone and you can enjoy prize winning journalism in bigger, bolder print.

5. Twitter


How can a list of updated apps for the iPhone 5, not have Twitter? 140 characters or less never looked as good as it does on this platform. The micro blogging site now runs on version 5.0 which makes it work beautifully with the iOS6. Besides, this is an app that is beautifully integrated with the operating system anyway, so you know it’s bound to be good.

6. Shazam


This almost magical app lets you play small portions of songs and gets back to you with song title, artist and album name. it is a brilliant music tagging tab and thanks to the updated OS and phone, its beats will play on for you. With unlimited tagging use Shazam as much as you want, and experience more of what you like, faster.

7. Reeder


The app store is no stranger to RSS but Reeder is a class apart. Its beauty lies in its simplicity and this is an app you cannot afford to miss. Please note: the use of all three services is optional, which means it’s possible to use Reeder only as either Fever, Readability or Google Reader client. But one of these is required to use the app, of course.

8. Temple Run


Temple Run app that has never looked back since its release and it continues to thrive in the iPhone 5 environment. Test your reflexes as you race down ancient temple walls and along sheer cliffs. Swipe to turn, jump and slide to avoid obstacles, collect coins and buy power ups, and see how far you can run!

9. Asphalt 7: Heat


When we talk about the gaming apps, Asphalt 7: heat is a great app. If you love driving games, it is the one which has been optimized for this great Smartphone. Wide screen of iPhone 5 gives you a better experience and you can enjoy it.

10. Flipboard

Flipboard is an older application, which was available for the previous iPhone users too. On iPhone 5 icons look bigger and and other images are larger. You will not see any reall changes for the iPhone 5. However, when you start reading articles you will feel the difference.

Apart from all this, there are Apple’s own iPhone 5 Apps which have undergone an update. You can enjoy a better version of a host of in house apps including iTunes U, Find my Phone, iBooks, iWork, iPhoto and GarageBand.
