Do you suffer from a phobia in life? One of the most popular ones is of course arachnophobia, also known as the fear of spiders, but now we point you in the direction of some iPhone Apps which list some of the most common phobias around, you’ll be surprised at the variety.

If you suffer from an unusual phobia and are looking for more information on it, there’s a good chance it will be listed in the Phobias app, which is free to download from the App Store or iTunes now. This app offers a visual guide of common and unusual phobias, some of which you’ll have never heard of before.

Some of the most common phobias include arachnophobia, which we mentioned above, acrophobia (the fear of heights), Ophidiophobia (the fear of snakes), Trypanophobia (the fear of injections), Pteromerhanophobia (the fear of flying) and also social phobia, the fear of being in public places and being talked about in a negative way.

Some of the more unusual ones include ablutophobia (the fear of bathing or washing), androphobia (fear of men), aquaphobia (the fear of water!) and even bibliophobia, the fear of books. This Phobia app is very interesting actually, even if you just want to search various phobias for your own research.
