Kiss My Apps (Part II) 

What's on the menu? Let me check my slot machine.

Looking for some cool (and mostly free apps) for your iPhone? Try SoundHound. It's faster than Shazam and it offers more features. This is the application that identifies a song when you hold your phone up to a radio or a speaker. But with SoundHound you can also hum a tune into the phone and it will find the song, the lyrics and YouTube videos.

How about Google? The iPhone Google app has a neat voice search function. Say the name of your favorite coffee shop into the speaker, and it will use your phone's GPS to find the nearest location.

Another new addiction is Urbanspoon. It's a slot machine for food. Can't decide what you want to eat? Click Urbanspoon and it dials up a suggestion. You can filter it down to certain types of food or how much you want to spend. Urbanspoon also includes user reviews.

Finally, there's Redlaser a great shopping companion. Scan a bar code and it retrieves prices at online merchants. It can also make a gift list for the holidays.
