Here are five Fresh iPhone Apps worth tapping into today. 

1. This American Life 

The most popular podcast in the world is now available as a $2.99 iPhone application. The NPR staple This American Life offers more than 17 days of episodes streamed for free on this application (individual episodes can also be downloaded from the app for 99 cents each). Other cool features include episodes of the television show with ran on Showtime, behind-the-scenes footage, and the ability to browse by individual contributors. 

2.iDroid Mini Browser

Looking to replace the Safari browser on your iPhone with an alternative designed exclusively with the iPhone touch screen in mind? Try giving the iDroid Mini Browser a whirl. The iPhone app, currently available for $1.99, borrows from the Safari, Android and Opera user interface playbooks. Loading time can still be a bit so, but this imperfect app is a step in the right direction.

3. Augmented Reality Flight 

Turn your iPhone into an iJet with this 99-cent application. Augmented Reality works like a toy airplane as you hold your device and guide it around the room. Your phone’s capture will see everything underneath as your iJet banks from side to side with every turn. 

4. Motor Trend 

As we are in the thick of Auto Show season, now comes this new free app from Motor Trend online. Keep up-to-date with the latest automotive news and new vehicle reviews with Motor Trend, and enjoy videos, photo galleries and more.

5. StealthType SMS

It’s not uncommon for many of us to want to send a discreet text message with our iPhones without being seen looking at the screen. This new 99-cent iPhone app helps us type more accurate touch screen SMS messages without looking at what we type by providing audible cues to what characters we are inputting and where are fingers are placed on the device. Not recommended for driving!
