Verizon iPhone Apps For Music, Gaming, Productivity

Verizon and Apple took to a New York City stage Jan. 11 to unveil the iPhone 4 on the carrier's CDMA network, breaking AT&T's exclusive hold on the device in the United States. General availability begins Feb. 10, with a price-point of either $199 for the 16GB model or $299 for the 32GB model with a two-year contract. Analysts expect the Verizon deal to significantly increase the number of iPhone users, although questions remain about how many customers AT&T might lose, and whether the iPhone on more networks will affect Android smartphones' remarkable growth rate. The Verizon iPhone 4 closely resembles the AT&T version in both hardware and software, with the exception of some design changes to the exterior antenna rim and the addition of a Verizon-specific "Personal Hotspot" that lets the smartphone connect with up to five WiFi devices. For the first time, Verizon subscribers will have a smartphone that runs apps from Apple's App Store, a prospect that likely fills some heavy games-and-apps users with near-religious glee. For those users (and everyone else), the following list provides some suggestions on what apps you'll probably want to download first to your new Verizon iPhone 4.
