Pandora-The Pandora iPhone app is the iPhone version of the free personalized radio which is completely integrated with your web based Pandora account.

Shazam-Shazam is an innovative iPhone app that solves the chronic question of "What's that song"? It happens to all of us, doesn't it? We hear a song, love it, know we have heard it before but just can't recall it. Or that title and artist is just on the tip of tongue and we can process it fast enough. With Shazam you don't need to. Just hold your iPhone near the speakers of the device playing that music. Through iPhone's microphone Shazam gets hold of that song and identifies the album, artist and song title for you. This app is free too!

Ocarina-Ocarina makes one of the most unique uses of iPhone's touchscreen by turning it into a flute which you can play with your fingers. Ocarina transforms your phone into your own instrument. You can blow into the mic and tap the four virtual holes on the screen, all of which give a cool experience of playing a real flute. In fact users of the Ocarina community can hear what you are playing in the globe mode and it provides sharing among users. The cost of the app - $0.99.
