Ten best iphone apps 2017
Firstly I would like to thank the reader for landing into this article. If you are searching for the ‘Ten best iphone apps 2017’ then I must say you are at the right place. It’s pretty amazing to think that Apple’s mobile operating system is already nearly 10 years old, with the recently released iPhone 7 shipping with iOS 10.
The interesting fact here is that the first iPhone couldn’t even run third-party apps, if you can imagine that, but since then those apps have been paramount to the phone’s success. There are now roughly 2 million apps available, ranging from the excellent to the awful.
Ten best iphone apps 2017
1. Evernote [Price: Free]
Without the Evernote app for iPhone, we’d be a lot less productive while we’re away from our desks. This free, straightforward note-taking app outdoes the competition thanks to its strong search capabilities and effortless organization. But the real key to its success and popularity is that Evernote synchronizes all your files by saving them to a cloud service. Meaning anything you create or alter on your iPhone will be there waiting for you when you log into any other version of Evernote.
2. Facebook [Price: Free]
The social network of record has come out with quite a few apps, but this one remains the most essential. If you watch strangers using their iPhones, there’s a good chance that Facebook is the app they’re using. And there’s a reason for that: No other communication app offers the richness of interaction possibilities. With the Facebook app, you can not only respond to friend’s posts, but also upload photos, and even broadcast live video.
3. Flilpboard [Price: Free]
Flipboard, an app initially designed for the iPad that curates content from your social networks and Web partners based on your interests and turns them into stunning magazine-like digital pages, is now available on the iPhone. The app is free to download and requires a free user account. Flipboard absolutely shines on the iPad, taking advantage of swiping gestures with both visual and interactive grace, and it’s still elegant on the iPhone, despite the smaller screen.
4. Gmail [Price: Free]
Google’s main email app (the company also makes Inbox by Gmail) is a wonderful communication tool, as long as you only use Google’s email service. Unlike our other Editors’ Choice, Outlook, it doesn’t handle mail accounts from any provider. But it does make your entire email database much faster and easier to deal with than the pre-installed Mail app can. That capability alone makes it a must-have iPhone app. It could very easily become your primary app for Gmail. It’s smooth and fast, as well, but note that Apple doesn’t allow third-party mail apps to become the default, the one that opens when you hit a link.
5. Google Maps [Price: Free]
Another one from the dominant force on the internet, Google Maps may well have the most up-to-date and detailed geographic information of any organization around. Its turn-by-turn directions by car, foot, and public transportation are hard to beat. With Google Maps, you can see estimated travel times and integration with your Google account for quick access to your home and work addresses. Offline maps, street view, and indoor maps are nifty plusses. After a shaky start, the iPhone’s built-in Apple Maps now matches most of its features, however, and competitor Here Maps offers another good alternative.
6. LastPass Password Manager [Price: Free / $12 per year]
LastPass is one of the must-have iOS apps. It’s a password manager which lets you save your login credentials in a safe and secured way. Additionally, it helps to generate nearly impossible passwords for you to use on varied accounts. It’s managed and controlled with a master password. It has cross-platform support so you can use it on computers, mobile devices, tablets, etc,.
There are others similar apps to it, but LastPass is always one step ahead. Additionally, the premium version is very cheap. You can also get LastPass Authenticator to go along with it for added security.
7. SwiftKey [Price: Free]
SwiftKey Keyboard is one of the most popular, powerful and customizable third-party keyboards available. It has launched into the market several years ago with a predictive engine unlike any other keyboard had. It has grown lot over the years.It’s a free application available on the App store. Microsoft now owns SwiftKey.
8. Reuters News [Price: Free]
Reuters News app delivers breaking news, analysis and market data from the world’s most trusted news organization. Explore a seamless stream of articles, pictures, and videos on your phone or tablet. Reuters App accolades include the Apple App Store “Edit’s Choice”, “New and Noteworthy” and “What’s Hot” plus a 2014 Appy Award for News.
9. Twitter [Price: Free]
For a long time, Twitter Inc., the company that owns the 140-character social network, didn’t make its own app. Dozens of third parties did, however, but not all the resulting apps were worth using. So when Twitter released its official Twitter app—and it worked well and loaded quickly!—users folded the new tool into their iPhones happily. If you tweet, it’s a no-brainer to have this app. If you don’t tweet and have been on the fence about joining the masses, the iPhone app makes it easy and convenient to get on board.
10. Weather Underground [Price: Free]
Sure, iOS has a Weather app, but you should forsake it because Weather Underground, our Editors’ Choice for iPhone weather apps, is far better. It succeeds because it sticks to what it does best: clearly presenting lots of hyper-local information in a simple and highly customizable interface. The rich data in this excellent app will keep the most info-hungry meteorology geek satisfied.
