    Firstly if you speak of free apps, you have to jailbreak your iphone
    google absinthe and click the result that's from greenpoison
    At the right side, download the absinthe version applicable to your OS (windows/ mac/ nux/
    Plug, your iphone, click jailbreak
    go click the absinthe icon and wait for it to reboot.
    once it's done, go look for cydia, 
    go to
    manage > sources > edit > add
    cydia.xsellize.com
    cydia.hackulo.us
    once they finish, go to search, download appsync for ios 5+ and install0us
    once you have both, go to apptrackr.org
    download the apps you would like, then drag and drop it to your itunes.
    =)

    I would also like to add, sbsettings, and applestorel0us (or soomething) to your cydia search.
    restart springboard and boom. free apps ^_^

    Message me for details.

    However, if you want to stay legit, then go to the appstore and browse by category and select top free. these are the usual apps that are very common and ''good'' base of the number of downloads from the norm.

    So when you jailbreak your iphone it means i can put anything on there, like make it act like a usb?
    Also, when i brought my iphone they told me to call Apple to unlock my phone, so should i unlock my phone first then jailbreak it?

    USB - Of course.

    Well yes. This is because once jailbroken, apple cannot give any support to your phone unless you done a restoration via itunes (reverting your phone device back to Factory settings). Usually, only your provider can unlock your phone not apple, but i guess it's different where you live.
    I should also include that once jailbroken, you should not update your phone to any latest firmware unless there is a supported jailbreak for it. 
    (eg. Absinthe can only unlock iOS 5 and 5.0.1 but will not jailbreak iOS or work on iOS5.1 - the upcoming  iOS release. Thus if you've jailbroken and update your phone, any jail broken related softwares won't work. Jailbroken phone > updated non-jb phone)

    So if i tell you the clothes you wear, the things you sleep on, and the cool gadgets you use are made from 3rd world country who they slave just so they can produce the things you love. Would you still wear them? Those food you buy at the grocery store that comes from another country. Do you know how the employees get treated? What if the computer/parts or the phone you're using was from china and that the result was similar to apple's ipad. Would you still use your computer? better yet, your phone?

    Not all files, and iPhone can't act as or to be used as a regular USB external drive, there are 3rd party apps that provide similar functionality (ex: dropbox allows you to open word/powerpoint/photo on your iPhone).

    This is irrelevant to the thread.

    Yes you can access all files in your iphone and use it as a usb.
    once jailbroken, download iexplorer (google it)
    People don't know the power of an iphone and make quick assumptions and bad reviews. They then join the droids bandwagon thinking ''open source'' is the way to go but in reality if you dont know how to use and take advantage of that open source then it's useless. 

    once an iphone is jailbroken, it will surpass any android any day and time ^^

    Mhm no. I have an iPhone and I love it, I also jailbreak'ed it. I hope you didn't mean to say "People don't know etc" that to me, but if you are,  don't make a quick assumptions that I'm an android-lover just because I didn't know you could use iexplorer that will allow iPhone be used as a flash drive.

    Im sorry but my first line was to OP's question ^_^

    People - the general avg who jumps the bandwagon without jailbreaking their iPhone
    It never crossed my mind that you're an android lover.

    "there are 3rd party apps that provide similar functionality (ex: dropbox allows you to open word/powerpoint/photo on your iPhone)."
    This kind of tells me that you own an iphone or has knowledge of it.


    Anyways OP, good luck playing around with your phone. I hope that you will take advantage of all the resources that is at reach!
