With over 300,000 apps in the iTunes app store (as of October 2010), choosing just ten is an impossible task, but not one we're shy about here at Spot.PH. We scoured the app store for ten iPhone apps that Filipinos shouldn't live without based on the following criteria:
• We chose apps that we thought SPOT.ph readers would find indispensable.
• Locally-developed apps took precedence over others. "Relevance" is the keyword here.
• We ignored the usual suspects. Do you really want to see Plants Versus Zombies and Angry Birds on another iPhone app list? We didn't think so either.
• No jailbreak apps. Though jailbreak gives you access to many legitimate apps not found (or possible) in the iTunes store, it's also the gateway to software piracy, and we have enough of that already, thank you very much.
