    So I am new to Iphone and wow I will admit It is a little Overwhelming with such the variety and quantity of apps. I mean there were a lot on Android but nothing compared to this by a mile. So much to choose from aaahhhhhhhh. Where does one truly get started? Anyone else have this issue when they first came over to iphone?

    Love News apps, Social apps and Blog apps... I am looking to mess around with photo and videos since this thing has such a amazing camera. Next I need a Mac so I can completely turn to the Dark Side.

    Start by reading iMore's Pick of the Week feature every weekend.

    Next, figure out what you want, and cruise the Apps forum. Lots of good stuff here.

    You can also look on iTunes and they will have "bundles" of Apps Like "Essentials", "Free Game Apps" "Starter Kit". Stuff like that. Good place to start to figure out what you like.

    I use "Chomp" to find new and free apps.

    Apple recently acquired Chomp and are said to be working on an App Store revamp to improve discoverability
    Browsing top25 used to be how to find good apps, but not anymore these days with publishers gaming the charts

    Most of the game apps I've got downloaded I've discovered through here.

    Most of my weather related apps I found on my own or downloaded what Reed Timmer has. I downloaded a few of the ones he uses on his iPhone. Figure if they're good enough for him, they're good enough for me.

    The coding app I use for work I found on my own.

    Just figure out what you want whether it be games or radio apps or whatever and go from there. Welcome to the dark side.

    Personally, I like reading announcements via AppAdvice app on iPad.

    I never use thier website directly, but I'm in that app daily.

    What are the ones Reed uses for weather? If it works for a Storm Chaser its fine by me as well.

    Finding good apps depends on how you plan to use your phone. "Best of the year" articles and top app lists are good places to start, but they can get out of date.

    When I got my phone, I just dove in and tried a bunch of apps that looked interesting. There are lots of free apps out there, too, which makes it easy to try before you buy.
