Doomsday Preppers™ (FREE)
Doomsday Preppers is a popular TV show from the National Geographic Channel which depicts how people predict the doomsday and see how they prepare for the worst case scenario.

The difference is of course the every grim theme which requires you to build a multi-leveled bunker underneath the ground in preparation for the upcoming Armageddon. With 135 floors to build, this game will keep you occupied way past the supposed end of the world.

Well, as the world is ravaged by whatever ominous that is coming, you can keep yourself updated with everything about the apocalypse using Tweetbot. It is simply one of the best Twitter client there is. Why Tweetbot? Because the official Twitter app is just unreliable with its current version. Tweetbot will ensure that you can update your followers on just how the world is ending on your perspective. Be sure to attach photos!
Once the end of the world touches down, there is a big chance that there will be no electricity. So with the world thrown into the darkness, you will be thankful that you have installed a flashlight app to help you get your way around. Aside from providing a really bright flashlight, it also has other features like a compass, strobe mode with 10 different frequencies, and built-in SOS signal. Just make sure that you use the flashlight only when needed as the flash can drain your battery fairly quickly. This is another indispensable app for doomsday survivors.
Certainly one of the most popular iPhone apps around, the success of Instagram is simply phenomenal. Aside from being an essential photography app, we think that it is also an essential doomsday app. With Instagram, you can snap some pictures while the world as we know it is being ravaged by the apocalypse. To make your pictures much more ominous, you also can add various filters into your snapshots. You can then easily share your doomsday photos in various social media networks like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, Foursquare, and Posterous.

If ever the world is going to end, I know that many of you wish that the world would go down by the cold, rotten hands of the undead. While it is unlikely that the world will be overrun by zombies anytime soon, you can just go ahead and play one of the best zombie apocalypse games of all time. Based on Robert Kirkman's award-winning comic book series, this adventure game will have you experience what it's like to be in the middle of the zombie apocalypse.
