Here are five Fresh Apps worth tapping into today. 

1. The White House

One week before President Obama’s 2010 State of the Union Address, the White House today released an iPhone app that aggregates news, photos and blog posts that come out of the executive branch. No reason to run a deficit with this free and official app, which also carries live video streaming. 

2. iTrust 

Ever get that sneaking suspicion that your friends and significant others are snooping around on your iPhone? Find out for sure with the 99-cent iTrust application. Just program a few settings and leave your iPhone out for the scavengers to take hold. Once you return, view a log of the last five activities that took place on your device. 

3. Sundance Festival 2010

The annual Sundance Film Festival takes place in Park City today through January 31. Even if you can’t afford a trip to Utah, you can still indulge in the cinematic scene by investing $4.99 in the official Sundance iPhone app. View exclusive clips from presenting films as well as interviews with their directors. If you do make it to Sundance, the app serves as a convenient festival film guide and screening schedule.
