8 New iPhone Apps for 2012

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- It's only February, but developers have already released a flood of new apps for Apple's (AAPL - Get Report) iPhone.

The App Store now has over 500,000 apps and counting. Here are some of our favorites for 2012.


New iPhone app Viggle is a couch potato's dream -- it rewards users who "check in" to their favorite TV shows with prizes like movie tickets, gift cards and music.

Once you've signed up by selecting a login name as well as your zip code and cable provider, the fun begins. Let's say you're watching a show on CNBC --hold your phone up to the TV, press "check in" and the app can automatically detect the show you're watching (and reward you for doing so).

We tried this feature out and the app knew within a few seconds that we were watching Power Lunch, rewarding us with 30 points. We then had the option of sharing our viewing habits with friends through Facebook, reading about the show on IMDB and Wikipedia and hearing the latest chatter on the show through Twitter.

Viggle also lets users set reminders for their favorite shows, sending push alerts to phones right before the next episode is set to air.

Points accumulated through Viggle can be redeemed for items like a Starbucks (SBUX) gift card (7,500 points), iPod (10,000 points) and Amazon Kindle (AMZN) (175,000 points).
