Desert Island Top 5 Apps for iPhone

If you were in a situation similar to that depicted on the TV show "Lost" what 5 apps would you want to have the most - with no signal to just call someone?

If you ever find yourself stuck on an island, you are going to need something to entertain you.  Luckily, there are plenty of iPod and iPhone apps that will help you pass the time before you are rescued:

1) Amazon Kindle Reader - This app allows you to read eBooks from Amazon on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod. Amazon currently has the best choice of eBooks to download. You can also download free, public domain books from many websites online.   Just be sure you download the books before you get stuck on the island because there probably will not be any internet access on the deserted island!

2) iFitness - This app shows you a ton of different exercises that you can do. You can go through these different exercises randomly or just select a part of your body that you want to work out.   For instance, if you want to exercise your pectorals and biceps, iFitness would tell you that push-ups are a good workout for these areas.  It also allows you to track your progress, so you can see what workouts you did in the past.  When you're stuck on an island, you definitely want to stay in shape!

3) 101 Cookbooks - This app allows you to access all the recipes from 101 Cookbooks, a cooking site. From chocolate chip cookies to spicy salsa, this app will show you all the ingredients you need to make your favorite foods.  Then, it will show you step by step how to make these foods. If you have this app combined with iFitness, you will have a better chance at staying in shape, since you will be able to look up healthy foods. This app also shows the most popular recipes from 101 Cookbooks. When you are stuck on an island, you will have plenty of time to cook, but will also want variety in your meals; with this app, you will stay full!

4) Rock Band - This app allows you to play the popular Rock Band game on your iPhone or iPod. If you don't know Rock Band, the game allows you to use a virtual instrument (usually a guitar) to play popular music by pressing a few buttons (on the iPhone or iPod, you play on the screen).  This game can keep you entertained for days.  It has different difficulty settings, so you can start easy then work your way to becoming a rock star.  It also has a high score board, which will allow you to try to beat your best set. Rock Band combines the fun of playing video games with the entertainment that comes from listening to music.  Needless to say, if you're stuck on a deserted island for a long time, this game will help you to become a rock star!

5) Flashlight - This app seems really simple since it just turns your screen bright white, but it's very helpful when you are in a new place at night.

These are only five of the many great apps, so this list does not cover all that are available, but it does show some of the best for a deserted island.
