Here’s a list of 10 interesting apps for your iPhone that could help you get started.

° Pandora Radio v.3.1. This application is capable of streaming radio. The coolest thing about it is that music keeps playing even when you're doing other things on your iPhone. http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pandora-radio/id284035177?mt=8

° JiWire Wi-Fi finder v.2. Free Internet is always a heartwarming experience. Wi-Fi finder stores 200.000+ of Wi-Fi access points all over the world (135 countries to be more specific), so you can always expect to stay connected to the WWW as long as you keep your iPhone around. http://www.jiwire.com/iphone

° Drunk Dialer. Believe it or not, most people do drink alcohol beverages sometimes. And when this happens you don’t want to stay alone, don’t you? This iPhone app is specifically designed to randomly connect you with one of your friends (you can exclude your wife and boss if you’d like to) and even suggest you the address of the nearest bar. http://mplayit.com/#iphone/drunk-dialer/id/337953344

You can search, stream and make lists of your favorite music tracks using 4shared. http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/4shared-music/id393505358?mt=8#
