In today’s fresh iPhone apps, discover some tasty cookie and cake recipes, a great new way to multitask on your iPhone, and an app for creating unique T-shirts.

Martha Stewart Makes Cookies (iPad) $7.99

The holidays are full of baking, and lots of people turn to Martha Stewart to help get their cakes and cookies out of the recipe book and into the oven. Now Martha Stewart has released an app to turn the iPad into a baking companion with Martha Stewart Makes Cookies.

The app is packed full of cookie recipes — 50 of them — and comes equipped with a sort of image slider that lets you page through each of the recipes visually. Once you’ve picked which batch of cookies you’re looking for, the app provides a list of items to pick up from the store, video tutorials for how to put the recipes together, and timers to keep track of cooking time for each recipe.

App Switch (iPhone) $0.99

Multitasking on the iPhone 4 can create one problem — with more than one app running in the background, it’s a lot easier to forget which apps your phone is running. That can be an issue when starting up another app, since the iPhone’s resources are stretched on apps you’re not using.

App Switch is kind of like Task Manager on a Windows computer. It shows you which apps are running and lets you quickly switch between them. You can’t shut apps down from inside App Switch, but you can get to them to turn them off. At least you know what’s running on your phone and when, which can help you get the most out of your iPhone’s performance.

iTShirt (iPhone) Free

This is a very cool concept. After taking photos with your iPhone, you can use iTShirt to create a custom T-shirt from right inside this free app. Then, once you have your design finalized, you can order the shirt from the app as well — for less than $5.

Orders come with free shipping and, like the app itself, membership within the iTShirt social community is also free. It seems like too cool a system to pass up.
