There are probably more apps for the iPhone than there are grains of sand in an hourglass and more are being developed every day. Some are gaming apps while others tell you the weather and some are just plain “geeky” for lack of a better term. Below is a list of some of the geekier (read: “cooler”) apps you can find on your iPhone. Just make sure you have a good wireless network (got mine through hughesnetinternet.net). Some of these are pretty big.
Ideal for anyone studying medicine or just plain curious about what goes on “under the hood” – this app can help. Containing more than 300 beautifully illustrated drawings of various parts of human anatomy, users can find out everything they ever wanted to know about pretty much any part of the human body.
Starmap is pretty much like having a planetarium in the palm of your hand. Using the devices camera combined with GPS technology, you simply hold your phone up at the night sky and the display will show you which constellations are in view, as well as so much more. An ideal app for any stargazer.

It’s a great, interactive experience – especially if you ever wanted to know what something so small looks like up close.
