One of the things I like best about my iPhone is that I can get all sorts of games and applications for free off the iTunes store. Like most things in life, not all apps are created equal and if you have been on the lookout for some quality free games and applications for your iPhone, I am going to run down a few of my favorites here.

Fandango Movie App
I like to go to the movies, but I don't like to have to wait on the phone to get movie times if I am not near a computer to check online. I downloaded the new Fandango application for the iPhone and if you are a movie fan, you need to grab the app too.
Using the application you can put in your zip code or allow the app to find your location. After your location is entered, the application will show you nearby movie theaters along with movie times. If the theater participates, you can even buy movie tickets right from the application with your credit card and avoid the lines. Movie times are accurate and the application is very easy to use. Fans can also rate movies via the application.
One of the games I often play when I am sitting in the line to pick my son up from school is a darts game from Brian Hammond, which you can get more details on from dartsapp. The game is simple enough and offers practice and play versus AI modes. When playing the AI you can choose from beginner, intermediate, and master skill levels. Two game types are offered including X01 and Cricket.
The object of X01 is to reach a score of zero by subtracting the value of the space hit on the dartboard. The object of Cricket is to hit the numbers 15 through 20 and the bulls eye three times each. The controls are easy and you simply swipe a finger up the screen to toss the dart. How fast you move your finger and the direction you move it determine the speed and angle the dart is thrown at. The game is easy to play and challenging, even my 4-year-old daughter likes the game.
Aurora Feint is a fantastic puzzle game that takes full advantage of the unique iPhone controls. The core game play is matching rows of three or more of the same symbols, causing them to disappear in a Bejeweled style play. However, the matching of elements in the game is only part of the fun. You match the elements to create raw materials and gain levels making more assistance. Once you mine the materials, you can go to the smith or tower to play other mini games to unlock upgrades. The game is very fun and would easily be worth paying for.
Cookie Bonus Solitaire
Don't Miss: The Best HDR TVs
Another of my favorite free games is called Cookie Bonus Solitaire. The game is free, but it is ad supported. The ads are not intrusive and are only shown when a new game is started. The solitaire game play is what you expect from a solitaire game. You draw three cards each time and try to get them in order. Some of the cards have special assistance stamped on them that gives you points or draws one card that is face down from each of your remaining piles. If you are stuck, there are also four cheats offered called peak, any space, shuffle, and find aces. A few of the cheats are self-explanatory. The peek cheat allows you to see the cards that are face down in a pile and any space allows you to move one card to any blank space on the board.
