How to Put Apps on Your iPhone

The App Store has more than 350,000 applications or “apps” designed for Apple products such as the iPod touch and the iPhone. It seems like there is an app for just about anything – locating a good restaurant, buying movie tickets, booking travel or counting calories, just to name a few. Using the touchscreen feature, downloading apps to your iPhone is as easy as tapping your finger. You can also download apps through iTunes and transfer them to your iPhone later.
