Some apps (short for applications) come preinstalled on your iPhone, such as Contacts and Videos. But you can choose from a world of other apps out there for your iPhone, some for free (such as iBooks) and some for a price (typically, from 99 cents to about $10, though some can top out at $90 or more).

Apps range from games to financial tools like loan calculators to apps that help you when you are planning or taking a trip.

In this chapter, I suggest some apps you might want to check out and explain how to use the App Store feature of iPhone to find, purchase, and download apps.
