Is your iPhone feeling stale? There's an app for that.
If you just bought an iPhone 5, sticking to the same old apps doesn't make the experience fresh.
And if you're sticking with your old model, new apps are a great way to feel like you're keeping up with the latest and greatest.
Here's why now's a great time to freshen up your app collection: With Apple's new operating system, iOS 6 recently arriving, app developers have been releasing a flood of updates to take advantage of new features and a general upswing in interest in the iPhone.
Dark Sky helps you to stay on top of the weather.
Stay on top of fall showers and snowstorms with Dark Sky.
Dark Sky is one of our favorite weather apps. The app lets you know when it's going to rain down to the minute. In our experience, it's incredibly accurate. Plus its user interface is absolutely gorgeous.
Ticketmaster, updated to help you get rid of paper tickets.
Ticketmaster recently updated its app to support Apple's new Passbook feature. The update, part of iOS 6, makes it so that paper tickets are a thing of the past.
Ticketmaster is your gateway to concerts and other events.
If you choose, the Ticketmaster App can help connect you to nearby concerts based on the music in your iTunes library.
Ticketmaster says Passbook is supported for certain venues. We'll have to wait and see exactly what those venues are, but the support for the Passbook feature is live, giving you a great reason to check this app out.
Spotify delivers personalized music right to your iPhone.
Spotify's music library is full of millions of tracks from all the major record labels, so you shouldn't have trouble finding what you need.
Spotify gives you access to millions of tracks and makes the experience completely social. Users can see what their friends are listening to over Facebook and Twitter and discover new music. And iOS 6 has better support for Facebook apps, which makes the experience of connecting Spotify smoother.
Spotify will let you stream music to the desktop for free. But if you want to listen to music offline or take full advantage of its mobile apps, you'll need to subscribe to the service for $10 per month.
