If you want to download more apps in your iPhone but you are just not sure which one to download then here is what we have for you; a list of Top 10 iPhone Apps that Rocked in 2012 -

#1. Clear – With clever and elegant interface, clear is a quick and intuitive list-keeping application that helps in simplifying the messy life. Cause of its flexibility, clear is one of the most popular to-do list app that is mostly used for personal lists and shopping lists. It can also be put to use for creating a guest list for a party. The amazing and easy-to-use gestures take this application to a new level. One can add an item to the list just by pulling from the top; swipe can be used to mark a task as completed, navigation is made simpler with the pinch gesture etc. What’s even better? The list can be stored in iCloud as well.

#2. Adaptu Wallet – Adaptu Wallet is a personal finance and money management application for entry to mid-level budgeting enthusiasts. It comes with a number of features that not only helps the user in saving money for himself but also helps him to spend his money wisely.

#3. Gifture – The interface of Gifture is quite similar to Instagram. User can animate his existing photos or capture frames in real time using this app. There are a number of filters available to customize the pictures and different playback rates can be selected for each animated photo series. 

#4. N.O.V.A. 3 – Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance is a First Person Shooting game by Gameloft. Being a sci-fi FPS game, it can be referred to as the mobile version of Microsoft’s Halo. It might take some time for a user to get good at aiming but once you start playing it, consider yourself added in the list of addicts.

#5. Draw Something – Draw something is an interactive social game based on the same concept as many other applications but it still managed to stand out of the other similar applications and its popularity went on the next level. What makes it better than other apps is the fact that there is no time limits and no negative scoring for wrong guesses. May it be with a friend or a stranger, this game has always been fun for me.

#6. iTranslate Voice – With iTranslate Voice, you can translate as you speak. The application looks similar to Siri but there are flags on the bottom that lets you choose the languages. Currently, there are 30ish languages available in the app and one can even translate text using the same translator. For simple sentences, the results are quite accurate but the only thing that makes it sort of useless is that it requires internet connectivity for translation.

#7. Fifa 13 – Games by EA Sports have always been consistent holding the top positions in the iPhone App Store. Fifa 13 is undoubtedly the best football game available on iPhone till date. It’s not only about the graphics but real teams and real players makes the game quite interesting.

#8. iPhoto – iPhoto is used for organizing the pictures in your iPhone and integrating them with Facebook, Twitter and Flickr. Pictures can also be sent to other iPhone users who have iPhoto installed and have the wi-fi beaming option enabled.

#9. Sparrow – It is an alternate of the default Mail application for iPhone. What makes it better than the default application is the gestures that simplifies everything. Sparrow is definitely a better email client but for some reasons the push notifications are missing at this moment.

#10. Asphalt 7: Heat – Asphalt 7 is the most intense racing game available on the iPhone app store. One can play this game with other players online to take the racing to an entirely new level.
