These are actually my favorite apps of February but I’m a little late…

powerdownloaderPower Downloader [iTunes link] – This is a free app that lets you download a host of files to your iPhone like JPG, GIF, HTML, MP3, MP4, 3GP and more.¬† But, what I like to use it for is downloading YouTube videos for later viewing at full resolution.¬† However, you can only watch the video from within the app and there’s no way to get the video off your iPhone.¬† Obviously, Apple wouldn’t have an app that would pirate YouTube videos.¬† Since YouTube videos don’t stream on 3G at full resolution on the iPhone, this helps to watch your videos more cleanly. There doesn’t seem to be a size limit when downloading on 3G.

Which location-based app has more than double the amount of users of Foursquare and Gowalla combined and is free?¬† If the answer is MyTown [iTunes link] you’d be correct!¬† Unlike other location-sharing apps, MyTown plays much more like a real game.¬† When you check in to places, you have the option of buying them for your virtual town.¬† The properties you buy give you constant income and to upgrade them you need money.¬† To level up, you need points and you get that by checking in to more places.¬† I have to admit I’m kind of addicted to this.¬† However, the GPS locating on this app is not very good and I have to type in my location most of the time.

I used Beejive for the longest time to instant message on my iPhone.¬† I loved it for the most part but the app¬†loading time was horrendous.¬† Plus, I paid $9.99 for the app.¬† Then came Meebo [iTunes link].¬† It’s free and I believe it does load a little faster than Beejive.¬† I’m sure it’s even more magnified for me since I have the older 3G.¬† 3GS users may or may not see that much of a difference.¬† Sure, Beejive has a lot more features.¬† But, I don’t use most of them.¬† I just want to IM.¬† Meebo supports push notifications and when you bring up Meebo on your desktop, push notifications are disabled on your iPhone.¬† Nice touch.

Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock [iTunes link] – Apparently, we¬†sleep in cycles of light and deep sleep.¬† Every night, we set our alarm to go off at a certain time in the morning but many times it is sleepgraphwhen we are in a deep sleep cycle.¬† So, we’re very groggy when it’s time to get up.¬† The Sleep Cycle Alarm Clock is app¬†designed to change that.¬† The app will sound a soothing alarm when you’re in a light sleep cycle and then you can gradually get up.¬† Just as a warning, sometimes your light sleep cycle could come 30 minutes before you actually want to get up.¬† The accelerometer tracks the movement on your bed and knows if you’re in a light or deep sleep cycle.¬† So, yes, you will have to sleep with your iPhone on your bed.¬† And, yes, I have knocked my iPhone off my bed a couple of times.¬† What I really like the $.99 ¬†app for is tracking how long I’m in light and deep sleep.¬† I posted a sample of one of my night’s sleep.¬† I have a lot of peaks and valleys.¬† I am a light sleeper.
