This list is a look at our favorite social apps to ever grace the iPhone, based on our list of the best 100 iPhone apps of all time. As with the rest of the apps on the list, we evaluated social media and messaging apps based on their design, cultural impact and how they resonated with users. The apps below are ranked in the order in which they appeared on the best 100 list.
