The iPhone is such a popular and useful platform for apps for a number of reasons. Firstly there`s the 3G connection that allows fast downloads to make browsing and installing apps easy. Then there`s the powerful processor, large on board storage of either 8GB or 16GB and of course the accelerometer that allows you to tilt, shake and wave your i Phone around to interact with various apps. Finally the touch screen can register multiple simultaneous touches allowing for intuitive, easy to control interfaces.
