In Pictures: 15 iPhone apps that changed our world

The first iPhone hit the market less than five years ago -- and shook up our world. Now iPhone sightings are everywhere, with Apple lovers listening to music, playing games and staring into tiny screens. The last holdouts are coming around and finally getting a smartphone. Most people feel lost without their iPhones. Can you live without these iPhone apps?

News Apps

Whether you receive news alerts via the CNN app, AP app, New York Times app, or any other news-related app doesn't really matter. The point is you receive these alerts on your iPhone as the news breaks and can chat with friends, colleagues, even strangers about news events. You don't have to wait for the 5 o'clock news or tomorrow's paper. You don't even have to fire up your PC at home or work. You are one of the first to know what's happening in the world.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
