The 5 Most Useful Free iPhone Apps

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Readers love hearing about great apps that populate Apple's (AAPL - Get Report) App Store. I generally leave that content to other solid writers who contribute to TheStreet.

See, for example, Katie Roof's 10 iPhone Apps for Foodies and Top 5 Music Apps.

Since getting iPhone 5, I have tested a fair number of apps -- several hundred -- and narrowed it down to my five most useful.



No. 5: Remote

Apple just updated this app for iPhone 5 and the new iPad. Up until this past weekend, I never used it before. Now, I can't live without it.

You use Remote from your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch to control Apple TV or your iTunes library. I use it exclusively with iPhone 5 to control iTunes.

It's flawless. You can pretty much do anything from the app that you can do in iTunes. In the Remote app, your iTunes library appears on your mobile screen. You can play, pause, skip, move between libraries, edit and create playlists and even manipulate the excellent "Up Next" feature in iTunes 11.

No more putting active windows in the background to get to the iTunes platform on your desktop and laptop. If you're on the computer working all day, that's an indispensable time saver.
