Picture this: I just took a walk with my iPhone, but it was no ordinary stroll I assure you. If you would’ve seen me, headphones in, strutting along, you would’ve had only one possible conclusion for my behavior, that I had completely lost my freaking mind.

At certain points, I would stop and try to remain as still and quiet as possible. At other points I was moving fast while vigorously shaking my iPhone. There was even a time where you could’ve seen me yelling and clapping while blaring iTunes to try to create a noisy environment.

Now as I type this article, my keystrokes and mouse clicks echo wildly in my ears with the sounds of a raging storm, altering reality in a way unlike anything I’ve ever experienced.

Have I gone mad? What possible reason could a man have to engage in such ludicrous acts? The answer lies in an app from two of my absolute favorite people in Hollywood: Christopher Nolan and Hans Zimmer (along with Last.fm founder Michael Breidenbruecker).

So you’re hanging out with a friend you haven’t seen for ages, and while eloquently discussing the ups and downs of the past few months it suddenly dawns on you that you don’t have his/her contact information! Sound familiar? Maybe not, but you have to admit that typing in someone’s contact details and then manually finding them on Facebook and Twitter seems a little cumbersome for people living in the age of the iPad.

There is a solution. Probability suggests that 68% of people reading this will already be familiar with Bump (just don’t ask me to show you how I worked that out!). It’s been around for a while and has gathered a strong following. Bump’s core purpose, as it seems to me, is to make your life easier while simultaneously making you feel like you’re living in the future.

In addition to being the Editor here at iPhone.AppStorm, I’m also a graphic designer. This means that I’m generally a bit over-obsessive about aesthetics.

One place where this obsession pops up on a daily basis is my app selection. When I’m searching around for an app in the App Store, my first criteria tends to be the design of the icon. I know this is shallow and I’ve seen it lead to complete ignorance of some really great apps, but I almost can’t help it! There’s just no way I can bring myself to click on all the apps with ugly icons, much less download them and display them on my iPhone.

Today we want to know if you share this visual standard. Do you judge an app by its icon? Leave your vote on the right and then let us know about some of your favorite icon designs in the comments below. Some of mine are Evernote, Wikipanion, CSS3Machine and FLUD.

This week’s roundup features everything from nostalgia to ninjas, so there’s plenty to keep you busy.

While you’re at it, don’t forget to send us tips about interesting upcoming titles and things you’ve discovered about old ones. But for now, kick back after your long week and take a peek!

If there’s one thing most of us could do to improve our health, it would be to eat healthier.  Most of us know off the top of our heads that, say, a carrot is better for you than a Starbucks Venti Latte.  But exactly how many more calories are in your coffee than the carrot?

When it was first released, Mobile Safari was quite groundbreaking. It was a pioneer in blurring the lines between experiencing the web on a desktop and a mobile device. However, since then, it doesn’t feel like Mobile Safari has gained a lot of ground. Consequently, many users are looking elsewhere to either supplement or replace the iPhone’s default browser altogether.

The problem with searching for a replacement browser is that the App Store is bursting with horrible homegrown browsers that are far worse than Safari. Today we wanted to aid your search with a brief list of browsers that are actually worth trying. All of the apps below have decent or great reviews on iTunes and many have been reviewed right here on iPhone.AppStorm.
