For 2010, Mashable.com - which has just retooled its look for the new year - had compilied a list of all 700+ iPhone Apps they reviewed in 2009.
As we begin 2010, there are over 100,000 iPhone apps available for download — an overwhelming array of choices, but plenty of gems if you know where to look.
As a classical music fan, I am really enjoying this app. It's fun, educational and brings back fond memories.
With Classical Music, I can listen to one-minute excerpts of classical music from a variety of composers, learn more about each piece, as well as each of the composers. Afterwards, I can take a quiz to see if I recognize the songs and composers from listening to excerpts.
Pocket Tunes Radio 5.4.4 is now available here on the App Store (just grabbed it myself). This new release includes many improvements, with support for skins, including a fun Christmas skin. There are now several skins available for purchase, and examples can be seen here. You can browse all the skins by tapping on the Pocket Tunes logo from the Now Playing tab in Pocket Tunes Radio.

I’m a radio-aholic. I have XM satellite radio in my car, and stream Pandora at work. I stream FM Radio from a receiver in the upstairs of my house, I'm so geekified! With the major bump in bandwidth many households now enjoy via high-speed internet access, streaming is an easy way to enjoy the latest tunes, TV, or video all via your computer (or iPhone/iPod as it were).
So far, I didn’t want to write a full article on listening to the music clips (SID files) of the legendary Commodore 64 home computer (dedicated Wiki page HERE
). Now that the latest, just-released (brand new) version of the dedicated player, Sid Player Pro
has greatly (!!!) reduced the power consumption and become pretty much usable on previous-generation iDevices (iPhone 2G/3G and iPod Touch G1/G2) as well, I find it necessary to, at last, dedicate a full article to the question.
There are several ways of listening to C64 music on the iPhone. Your choice should depend on the following factors:
