Apple’s app store can be a fairly daunting place, boasting over half a million apps covering pretty much everything.

If it was an actual store there would be kids lost in it for years, so where do you begin? Luckily, we have compiled a list of the best new apps for the iPhone, from games to first aid.

N.O.S. Car Speedrace

We’ll start with a gaming app, since that what most of us techies really want. N.O.S. Car Speedrace is a racing game with a difference, boasting 360 degree physics emulation and cutting-edge graphics.

Gamers looking for a bit more from their tracks will be disappointed – all six tracks are oval shaped. But the game more than makes up for this in its fiery, metal-churning crashes. N.O.S. Car Speedrace is available to download now for £1.99

Awesome Days

Combining reminder alerts, date countdowns, and photo albums, Awesome Days is designed to help you sort your life out.

The key feature on this app is the photo albums, which once created can be customised, linked to a specific date, and shared on social networks.

Most people will be happy with the iPhone’s existing calendar, but this is ideal for anyone who needs almost constant reminding of upcoming events. Awesome Days is available for free.

British Red Cross

Out today, this app from the British Red Cross could save your life. Designed to help people learn more about first aid, the app features advice on 18 everyday first aid scenarios.

There are also tips on how to prepare for emergencies like road traffic accidents and extreme weather conditions – which could come in handy over the next few months. This app is free, so you’ve no excuse for not downloading it!

Power Cam

Your iPhone camera not giving you the David Bailey-style photos you feel you deserve? Then grab yourself Power Cam, which is free for the whole of December.

Offering over 50 different effects (effects that you didn’t even know existed) for photos and videos, this app will turn you into a photographic artist.

Glitch Machine

Glitch Machine is a music synthesizer for the electronic music nuts out there. Be warned, this app is not for the faint hearted, and requires some synth know-how to be truly mastered.

The interface is exceptionally basic, but the software can be used to create great tunes, which can then be exported to your iTunes account. Glitch Machine is available for £1.99.
