500,000 apps on iOS, with over 140,000 specifically made for the iPad. Putting these numbers aside, with the release of the Apple iPhone 4S, we would soon see the return of the daily long queues snaking outside SingTel, StarHub and M1. Fortunately, here at HardwareZone, you do not need to queue to have a read of the five apps we have carefully selected for iPhone 4S users.

Shadowgun is a 3D third person shooter game that is similar to Infinity Blade but better in almost all aspects. You play the role of John Slade, the galaxy's most infamous bounty hunter. Your mission is to hunt down Dr. Edgar Simon, a mad genius and leader of his mutant army of cyborgs and battle droids.

You will be astonished by the console-quality graphics of Shadowgun, which will be a treat for your eyes on the iPhone's gorgeous 3.5-inch display. The combination of advanced lightning effects, beautifully rendered environments and animations will demonstrate the new A5 chipset and graphics prowess.


Eternal Legacy

Eternal Legacy is rated one of the most popular role-playing games on the iTunes App Store.

It has you adopt the role of Astrain, who must save the Algoadian state from destruction and restore the living bond between humans and nature. In order to complete the mission, you have to acquire the Vash stones - the main source of power in the game.

WhatsApp Messenger

Price: US$0.99

Developer:  WhatsApp Inc

For messaging junkies, the WhatsApp Messenger app is still an essential app to download. In case you do not know, iMessage only allows you to instant message other iOS 5 users.

Being the most popular cross-platform messaging service (it's also available for Android, BlackBerry and Nokia phones), you will still need WhatsApp to communicate with your non-iPhone-touting family members and friends.



Price: Free

Developer: Twitter Inc

The upcoming iOS 5 update will bring Twitter integration to your iPhones. However, it is important to note that you are limited to sending out tweets from your iPhone.

For checking the timeline of your Twitter account, you still have to download the official Twitter app.
