Waze, Echofon, Chrome: My 12 Favorite Apps of 2012

Categories: Tech

It's been a crazy year in apps. Apple released the iPhone 5, complete with larger screen and new OS, as well as the iPad mini, aka Jumbo iPhone. There were scores of updates from manufacturers and, as usual, thousands of new apps on the market.

I wrote about my favorite 10 apps of 2011 last year around this time. This year I give you 12 for 2012. Feel free to leave your favorites in the comments. I'm always looking for new apps!
