Top 10 iOS Apps of 2011

“1. Tweetbot
When Tweetbot came out in April, it proved that even the most crowded markets can still find room for a great app. Tweetbot quickly started to rival the official app in terms of beauty, ease of use and features. With a customizable shortcut bar as well as advanced gesture support, Tweetbot is an all-around great Twitter client.

2. HBO Go
HBO subscribers login to the app using their cable or satellite credentials and instantly get access to hundreds of movies and the majority of HBO’s back catalog of award-winning television shows. From The Sopranos to Boardwalk Empire to Oz, it’s all there.

3. W.E.L.D.E.R.
If Boggle, Scrabble and Hangman had a baby, the end result might come close to being as good as W.E.L.D.E.R., a word game lover’s delight for iPad and iPhone.

4. Super 8
Super 8 turns your iPhone into a Super 8mm camera. You can control grain and picture effects, store and play back your movies and even upload directly to YouTube and share on Facebook and Twitter.

5. Grand Theft Auto 3
Everything from the PS2 classic is here. Even if you’ve been to Liberty City in the past, it’s worth a revisit on the iPhone or iPad.

6. Songza
Songza’s iPhone app was a real standout in a year full of great music apps. The app, which basically lets you browse a seemingly-endless mix of themed and curated mixtapes, is a fantastic way to discover new artists or listen to music for any occasion.

7. Infinity Blade II
Not only is the game gorgeous to look at, it’s a blast to play. Games like Infinity Blade 2 and RAGE HD have shown that iOS can be a formidable contender to other mobile gaming platforms.

8. Instacast
Enter Instacast, an app built from the ground up to deliver an excellent experience to audio and video podcast fans.

The app can sync with Dropbox or iCloud, can subscribe to new feeds from URL or by browsing your music library for podcasts you might already have from iTunes.

9. Mixel
Mixel is an ingenious iPad app that allows users to create digital collages out of their photos or photos found on the web and remix the collages of others.

10. AirPort Utility
The app solves my only complaint about the AirPort Extreme (which remains the best router I’ve ever owned): No remote access on a mobile device. Now, you can restart the device, change passwords, check on other connected units from an iPhone or iPad. You can even set up a brand new AirPort Extreme from an iPhone or iPad, as I found out over Thanksgiving break.”
