There are over 500,000 apps in the iPhone App store. When they say…there’s an app for that, well, there is! And for cigar connoisseurs there are several free apps worth downloading to your smartphone.

The Tampa Bay area in Florida is affectionately called Cigar City. So it’s no surprise that a team of cigar-loving app developers from Tampa set out to create the perfect cigar app called CIGARISH. The free or "lite" version of the app features cigar lounges and cigar-friendly bars highlighted on a map. The venues are categorized by their type of liquor license such as beer & wine, full liquor or BYOB. Each venue listing includes a picture, link to the venue website, description, hours of operation and contact information. Users navigate the app through a series of cigar labels that "burn" with sound effects when touched. A cigar blog on the app highlights the latest cigars trends.
