Ben Affleck's Top 10 Favorite iPhone Apps


Thought winning the Oscar for Best Picture (Argo) was enough to satisfy Ben Affleck? The four-time Details cover star followed up his Academy Award win with leading roles in director Terence Malick's To the Wonder and the highly-anticipated thriller Runner Runner, out in September.

Between work, travel, and family (he and wife Jennifer Garner have three children together), Affleck doesn't have much down time to kick back and watch the Red Sox or plow through his reading list, but a few good apps help him keep it together. Here, his top 10 iPhone essentials.

1. MLB.com At Bat: This app is great for when I want to watch the Red Sox, but I'm on the road.

2. ESPN Sportscenter: This is a killer app on my iPad for quick updates on my teams' scores.

3. Evernote: Lets me take articles I find on the web and read them anywhere on my iPhone.

4. Waze: Great [social GPS, map, and traffic app] for navigation, and it's easy to use.

5. Tweetbot: Lets me easily keep track of the news and organize my feeds. (Follow me on Twitter @BenAffleck).

6. Stitcher Radio: This is like Pandora for podcasts. It helps me keep track of podcasts I'm into and suggests new ones based on what I've liked.

7. This American Life: I love what the public radio space is doing on the digital front.

8. Goodreads: A great place to keep track of books I've heard about and want to read but have to shelve for later.

9. Wikipedia Mobile: Great for satisfying curiosity and either winning or losing trivia-based arguments.

10. IMDb: Well, this one is obvious.
