Favorite Fifty: 148Apps Best Apps of 2011: 16 - 25

Posted by Rob LeFebvre on December 27th, 2011

In what was another fantastic year in the world of iOS apps & games, we are here to bring you the fifty titles that we, the staff of 148Apps, thought were the best of the year. Here are the app titles 16 - 25 in our Best Apps of 2011:

iMovie- Video editing on the iPhone is revolutionary enough, but the extra screen space on the iPad makes this activity truly useful. Making movies is fun again, thanks in no small part to Apple's attention to detail in this flagship app.

Facebook - The wait was long for the iPad version but between its iconic look and intuitive menus systems, the official Facebook Universal app renders the competition obsolete. It's fantastic to have this in both flavors, for checking on the go or on the couch.

FX Photo Studio HD - Offering a plethora (194 at last count) of different photo effects without forgetting the bare essentials like crop and rotate, FX Photo Studio is a one stop shop for everything anyone might need in a photo editing app.

Dolphin Browser - With gesture based controls and a speed dial system of visiting regularly used sites, Dolphin has made my browsing experience so much faster this year. Safari continues to dominate as the default browser, but Dolphin Browser does so much more so much better.

Daedalus Touch - When we're writing complex, thoughtful pieces of journalism, we like to be undistracted by the cruft of modern computing, like Facebook, or ads. Daedalus Touch makes this possible but doesn't forget to include useful features like iCloud and Dropbox support.

GroupMe - We use this app all the darn time to chat amongst ourselves, even when we have nothing much to say. For private team meetings, SMS integration, and just plain great usability, GroupMe is our go to app. It's also accessible via the web, so no matter where we are, we can join in the conversation.

Stitcher - We love podcasts, and we love Universal apps. Stitcher has both! Using iTunes to download and listen to podcasts is so last year; Stitcher allows us to grab our favorites while on the go, and even provides curated lists for those of us craving that something new we haven't heard before.

Free Time - What can we say? Time-management is very important to us and this app makes it much easier than it used to be. Instead of the standard question of "where do we need to be," Free Time answers the much more subtle - yet equally important, "when do we not need to be anywhere?" This allows us to take that downtime when we can find it, or at least know we're not double booking ourselves. What? Like you've never done that.

Voice Actions - It's not exactly something that we NEED to get through our day, but we're still impressed by just how comprehensive this app is. It also allows us to satisfy our Siri envy until we all get a 4S phone to use. Use Voice Actions to call, text, search the internet, and even bring up favorite apps all with your voice, on any iOS device.

7Notes Premium HD - Need a note taking app with just a bit more to it? 7Notes Premium is a fantastic blend of handwriting recognition, note taking facility, and Evernote compatibility that makes something greater than the sum of its parts. While we'd love a Universal app, there is a version for both the iPad and the smaller devices, so most folks can use this one.

Dolphin Browser version 2.0 was released for iOS and is now available for download on the App Store. Similar to the company's recent Android update, the mobile browser for the iPhone and iPad now features Dolphin Connect, which enables the user to sync all of their important bookmarks across platforms. For instance, iPad owners who have an Android mobile phone are good to go with the latest update. This should make for a consistent user experience regardless of mobile platform.

The app's Webzine received several enhancements, including bringing 16 of the most popular channels directly to the home screen for easy, one-touch access. The company also announced that they've surpassed 10 million users and in celebration are giving away a trip to Disneyland for one lucky Dolphin user. This also includes a guest. The prize is five nights at the Walt Disney Dolphin Hotel in Orlando, Florida. Find out all the details on the company's blog.

Dolphin Browser: A New And Speedier Web Browser

There's a new web browser vying for everyone's attention and rightfully so considering Dolphin Browser's previous success on the Android platform. 8 million Android users can't be wrong after all.

Having tried out Dolphin Browser for a time, the app feels like a much more fully fledged browser than Safari. There's 'proper' tabbed browsing just like on a desktop, a bookmark folder that's as easy to access as on any PC or Mac. Auto-completing of URLs is fast and efficient too. For even faster access, a speed dial system ensures that users can consult their favorite websites at the tap of one button for maximum ease.

The real killer feature is the Gestures system though. This allows users to draw a sign or add their own gestures so that websites respond accordingly. For example, drawing a v gesture scrolls the site to the bottom of the page. Users can create their own gestures too such as an F for Facebook or M for their webmail.

As another time saver, social networking sharing facilities have been added on screen at all times making it simple to share content with others.

Give Dolphin Browser a shot today. In just my brief time of using it, I've found it to be a real timesaver once set up, with some very useful features.
