Shopping at the App Store

Perhaps the coolest thing about the iPhone is the multitude of apps available for it. As of this writing, more than 450,000 apps are available for the iPhone. These apps range from games to medical programs to reference utilities and more. If there's something you're interested in, there's most likely an app for it. The best news of all is that many apps are totally free, while most others are priced between 99 cents to $2 (though there are some apps that do cost hundreds of dollars). Even long after you've bought it, apps keep your iPhone fresh and new, and with the App Store on your iPhone, you can shop for apps wherever you have a Wi-Fi connection.
