When you first get your iPhone, there are already 12 preset apps on the phone. This is including the calendar, the settings app, the contacts app, etc. By the way if you don’t already know, an app is a little box on your iPhone’s screen we can call it an iPhone desktop for convenience. So one of the apps that your iPhone comes with is none other than the App Store. This one app houses millions of apps for your to download onto your iPhone just by tapping the button with your finger you are automatically directed to the app store.
A few things to know before you jump in and start downloading. One, there are a few small icons on the bottom of the screen of the app store icon. There is a featured icon, which tells you what the newest apps are, what people at the apple headquarters recommend, based on the most popular and upcoming trends for iPhone apps. There is categories icon which will allow you to easily navigate for the type of app you are looking for whether it is for a game, book, news, etc. There is also an icon titled Top 25, which yes using common sense shows you the top 25 most popular apps for iPhone users, a search icon which is what you will eventually end up using most, and an update icon.

To download an app on your iPhone, find the app you want, tap it with your finger, and you will see either the price of the app in a small blue box or the word free in the small blue box. Click the blue box, and the box will then turn lime green saying install app. Tap it again, and mini menu box will appear asking your to put your Apple Itunes password. Once you have put in your password, the iPhone will automatically start downloading the app onto your iPhone. If you have changed your mind after reading the reviews on that particular app just hit cancel when the mini menu box appears, or click one of the icons on the bottom ie. search.
When you click an app and it gives you a description of the application, using your finger push the screen in an upwards direction to continue reading. You will eventually get to an area that has screen shots of how the app will look when you are using it, and there will be a small tab for customer reviews. We highly recommend reading the reviews before downloading an app if you are not familiar with said iPhone app. Please see below for 2 important notes regarding this tip on how to download an app on your iPhone.
