iPhone Apps Of The Week: Sitegeist, Flickr, and More

By Leslie Horn on at

It's great when apps make things easier, like giving you a way to easily access information. And this round of the best iPhone apps of the week will help educate you about your neighbourhood, make it easier to share photos, and much more. So dive on in!


Wink: Your friends always bug you about posting your photos. Never let them nag you again—Wink shares pics with the people in them with just a tap of a button. Free

Sitegeist: There's a lot of information about your neighborhood (and any 'hood, really) in plain site. This app from the Sunlight Foundation digs it up, divides it into categories (people, weather, history, housing, etc.), and serves it up in easy to digest graphics. Free

Flickr: Finally, a Flickr app updated for Apple's current hardware and operating system. The big update lets you share pics to Flickr, browse others' photos, check out the EXIF data on an image, and add filters if you please. Free

Pokédex: Are you a fan of Pokémon? This is the ultimate source for all the Pokémon in the world, right on your iPhone. £1.49


SongBooth: You don't need high quality production tools to make your own music videos. Really you just need your iPhone and SongBooth, then you can share your clips with your friends and maybe someday be a huge star, but probably not.
