Those of us who aren’t living in a country lucky enough to have Spotify are still on the lookout for the ideal streaming radio app. Most services that let you have any say in the songs that play charge you a monthly fee. Others, like Pandora, merely let you guide the stream in a vague direction based on your personal interests.

Jelli is a new player in this category with a novel idea: vote-driven live radio. Keep reading to see what exactly this is, how it works and whether you should try it.

Smartphones and apps are accused of making us less social and more glued to screens than ever before. Most of us argue that apps help our lives, but in all honesty, most of us should spend a lot more time outdoors than we really do. So the question is, “can an iPhone app can inspire you to get out and explore the real world around you more?”

Project Noah just might be the solution. This award-winning app makes it easy to discover the wildlife right around you and share your own wildlife discoveries with the world. Whether it’s a deer in the woods, a snake in your garage, or that tree around the corner that you’ve always wondered about, we all have wildlife around us that we’d love to share with the world. Project Noah inspires you to find out what’s living around you to help both you and others learn more about our planet. Before we put on our hiking boots and hit the trail, let’s take a closer look.

With the iTunes Store now containing well over 300,000 apps and growing at unprecedented rates, the iPhone has become the source of a fairly new type of serious psychological condition: App Addiction. We here at iPhone.AppStorm are full-blown app addicts and proudly download and test every new toy we can get our hands on.

Today we want to gauge your level of app addiction with a simple poll that asks how many apps you download per week (not counting standard updates). Are you a casual downloader or an obsessive app-crazed lunatic!?

After voting in the poll, leave a comment and let us know how many of these are paid apps and how many are free. Do you stick to free downloads or are you spending serious amounts of cash to build up the ever-growing kingdom of Apple?

Since we’ve featured a good number of premium titles over the past few weeks, we figured it’d be nice to lighten the load on your wallets a bit and showcase some of the recent free titles that have impressed us.

This week’s picks are therefore completely free, so you’ve got nothing to lose by checking them out. And if you think free games aren’t as fun as paid ones…think again!

From kitchen timers built into your oven to sand timers beside your sink, timers are one of those little useful gadgets that get thrown into everything and then promptly forgotten. Yes, we need to make sure we know when the cake’s done baking, but truthfully, you’re not very likely to hear the kitchen timer once you’ve wandered off to another room anyhow. There are plenty of things we really do need to time, but often, traditional timers are too much trouble to keep up with.

Your iPhone can be a great solution to this problem. The built-in clock app includes an alarm, stopwatch, and basic timer, and you’re much more likely to hear the timer go off since its always right there in your pocket. Still, the included timer could be improved, so there are many alternate timer apps in the App Store now. Today we’re going to look at the Best Timer app, which may not really be the absolute best timer but is still a very nice alternative to the built-in clock timer.

Last week Twitter updated the Terms of Use on their API and Ryan Sarver, one of Twitter’s top API guys, issued a very interesting statement that immediately lit a fire under developers and bloggers in the tech world.
