The iPhone is an amazing piece of technology. Not only is it a mobile device that answers your calls and sends out texts with relative ease, but it also can provide you with apps that help you find your way through an unknown location, locate the nearest restaurant, or see if any storms are heading your way.

One of the best features about the iPhone, though, is the ability to download and play games. What’s better is that many of the games you can download can be played online with your friends on your iPhone!

But there are thousands of games out there to download. You have to know which ones are worth your time and money. So here we present the eight must-have games for your iPhone!

1.     Angry Birds ($0.99) – This really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise! Angry Birds is one of the very best games for iPhone there is, and it has been at the top of the gaming charts in just about every country. For those who don’t know what the game is about (and who DOESN’T know at this point?!), the goal of this super addictive game is to efficiently destroy the structures of the evil green pigs, who have stolen the angry birds’ eggs. This is easily the best way to spend $0.99 on the iPhone!

2.     Drop 7 ($2.99) – Talk about a brain workout! Drop 7 can be best described as an addictive blend of Tetris and Sudoku, except much less complicated. The basic idea is to drop blocks into a 7×7 grid. Each block has a number on it, and when the number on the block matches up with the number of blocks in a row or column, it disappears! This game is one of those that is easier to play than explain, so you’ll just have to download it to see what all the hoopla is about!

3.     Geometry Wars: Touched ($4.99) – That’s right – it’s Geometry Wars for the iPhone! This game, which is an addictive hit on gaming consoles, uses a clever contextual touchscreen thumb stick control system that will track the movement of your thumb in relation to where you initially touch the screen. It’s an elegant, fast-paced, and insanely fun game, and the iPhone version includes familiar Geometry Wars modes including Deadline, King, Pacifism, Waves, and Sequence. Oh, and if you’re not very good at math, don’t fret. You won’t need to identify side-angle-side triangles at all… just blow them up!

4.     Plants vs. Zombies  ($2.99) – The classic computer game is back and ready to rock on the iPhone! Plants vs. Zombies has 50 levels, 49 different plants, and 26 different kinds of zombies on the iPhone. If you haven’t played this game before, then you are definitely in for a real treat! Think of it as a Tower Defense style game that takes place in your back garden and has zombies in it. Practice for the impending zombie apocalypse with this fun game!

5.     Words with Friends ($0.99) – Forget Scrabble! Words with Friends is totally IN! Almost everyone is playing this fun iPhone game, and it is such a great icebreaker for when you meet someone for the first time and notice that they have an iPhone. There is simply no explanation needed. Just ask someone you meet if they play it. You’ll see what we mean!

6.     Fruit Ninja ($0.99)– Ever wish you could slash, cut, or otherwise mutilate fruit to your heart’s content without having to clean up the mess (or potentially cutting off your thumb)? Now you can! Simply play Fruit Ninja and swipe your finger to slash fruit all day long!

7.     Peggle ($2.99)– Fair warning – you will never hear Beethoven’s “Ode To Joy” in the same way ever again when you play this game! The objective of this game is to fire balls from the top of your screen and hit as many pegs as you can. Peggle features over 100 levels and a fun multiplayer mode. This amazing game is fun and easy enough that truly ANYONE can play this (and become instantly addicted to it!). A definite must!

8.     Draw Something (free) –Don’t let the title fool you – no drawing skills are required with this easy, addicting game! You can use over 50 vibrant colors to draw your pictures with Draw Something, and you take turns guessing what your friends draw at your own pace. If you’re stumped by a word, you can simply exchange it for a new one by exploding it with a bomb.

If you don’t have some or any of these games downloaded to play on your iPhone, what are you waiting for? Go to the App Store and download them right away! Better yet, get your friends to download them so you have someone to play with.

Apple Names Instagram App of the Year!

The iPhone has a lot of super cool apps, that’s for sure. In fact, it’s really weird (and pointless!) for anyone using an iPhone as their means of communication to NOT have any apps! And while we all know and love Angry Birds, Words with Friends, and all those other fun apps, there’s one awesome app that has been crowned the best of 2011.

Just a few days ago, Apple has named Instagram as its “definitive” app of the year! Apple even claims that Instagram, a FREE app that allows you to take pictures on your iPhone, transform them into works of art, and share them with your friends on social media, makes it “nearly impossible to take a bad shot!”

Let me tell you, we totally believe that Instagram is THAT GOOD! In fact, the app currently has eleven, count ‘em, ELEVEN different custom filters that you can use to give your photos your own personal touch.

Instagram was introduced in Apple’s App Store on October 6, 2010, and by June 2011, the 8-month-old app had 5 million users. Currently, the 14-month-old app boasts a hearty 14 million+ users who post about 400 million photos!

For those of you who live in the dark ages and don’t have an iPhone yet (you know who you are!), you might be currently asking yourself, “So what? What’s the big deal?” Maybe those of you who DO have an iPhone are asking, “Why is this app the best? Angry Birds is the best!”

Think about it. People these days are glued to their phones. In fact, I bet if you take a look around you, you’ll see people texting on their phone, taking pictures with it, or POSSIBLY talking with someone on the phone (I know – it seems so archaic anymore, doesn’t it?). The cell phone, especially the iPhone, is ubiquitous and goes with us wherever we go! And well, is there another app out there that can let you take pictures of whatever you want, doll them all up, and INSTANTLY share your photos with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr? Nope!

If you’re still not inspired by this app, why not check out Instagram’s top 15 users? Trust us, if you check these users’ photos out, you’re going to want to download this app, and you may never want to use a bulky camera ever again

And guess what? You’ll soon be able to enjoy using Instagram on your own iPhone, which will soon be protected by a totally BODACIOUS iPhone case! We at Bodacious Cases are gearing up for our national launch of our super awesome cases in mid-January, and we couldn’t be more excited! We will be offering the iPhone 4 case, and then we plan on issuing other smart phone cases and cases for the iPad, Motorola Droid, iPod Touch, and much more!
