If you are like the editors at CNET.com.au, then the first button you pressed on your brand-spanking new iPhone read "App Store".
Apple's Phil Schiller recently quoted the total number of apps on the Store to be "50,000", a number as daunting as it is impressive. With that many new apps to choose from it can be a difficult task to sift through the goofy, quirky and downright useless programs to find those that genuinely have a place on your shiny new phone. We've been downloading apps and putting them through their paces for a year now, and below is the shortlist of our favourite apps that are available for free.
