In this episode of the iOS App Picks we demonstrate five applications in 30 seconds each. These apps will keep you entertained, check out which trailers of iTunes movies and upcoming releases, and use your iPhone 4′s/4S’ LED as a flashlight. To download these apps directly to your iPhone, just click on the title of the application and the iTunes software will automatically launch to the app in the App Store. If you have the free Google Search app installed on your iPhone just snap a picture of the QR-Code using Google Goggles or any other QR-Code scanner that will launch the App Store on your iPhone.
