Best iPhone Apps 2014: Free and paid apps for iPhone

Whether you're after the latest free iPhone apps or the App Store essentials, T3's app experts pick the best iPhone apps to grab in 2014

The iPhone 5s is the latest extension of the Apple smartphone family, and comes with an ever-growing library of available apps. Each month T3's specialist iPhone team storm the App Store in search of the very best iPhone apps available right now, so if you're looking to furnish your phone with some top quality, free and paid for app delight, look no further.

Whether you scroll aimlessly through the App Store, or have just grabbed an Apple smartphone, here's our monthly updated list of what the T3 app experts have uncovered.

Surgeon Simulator:

Brain surgery? Not exactly rocket science, is it mate? But time to scrub up and don your latex gloves anyway, proving yourself by taking virtual control of the flailing, jelly-arms of a doc given the task of fixing an unfortunate soul named Bob. Bob is your Prometheus, but with even less hope of rescue, remaining chained eternally to your operating table as you attack his open chest with a variety of enthusiasm and metal. When Surgeon Simulator landed on the PC’s Steam Store this time last year, after just two months of development, it was an instant hit and now stands as one of 2013’s big indie success stories, having racked up over a million downloads. This tweaked iPad version gives you the opportunity to control Bob’s fate with your bare hands, which is no easier, but still a lot of fun. You can choose to take on a variety of tricky transplant operations, but as you’ll quickly realise, battling with the ragdoll physics means Bob meets a grisly end time and time again. That sounds frustrating, but it’s actually hilarious and central to the fun. Honestly, throwing a man’s vital organs around a room has never been such a lark.
