iPhones are nothing without apps, as applications are responsible for all major/minor singular or multiple tasks. There are many apps that can add knowledge to your life but given the fact that an average person passes 3000 hours of its life in front of a mirror cleaning its teeth, dental iPhone apps become a must-have thing for an iPhone owner.
There are many free applications out there. However, there are some apps that you have to pay for and the charges may vary from as little as 99 cents to a whopping 399.99$.
