The Ten Best iPhone Apps

Find My iPhone

This is probably one of the most important apps for your iPhone. It’s the first app you should download once you activate your phone to ensure that your phone is secure. This app will help you locate, remote wipe or remote lock your phone just in case it falls into the wrong hands.


You’ll have no trouble keeping up with all your news, blogs and social media once you have Flipboard. This app allows you to compile all your favorites, from the The New York Times to YouTube, into a magazine format so you can flip through everything with ease.


Ever find yourself struggling to remember everything you have to do for the day? Emailing and texting yourself with reminders and trying to add things to calendars on a small screen is just a hassle. Weave makes everything simpler, allowing you to create lists for anything — projects, household chores, expenses, and more. You can also share these lists if you’re collaborating, and you can add notes for each task so you can stay on top of things.


Almost all travel sites and apps offer some version of the same promise; enter your travel info and they’ll find you the best deal. Kayak not only does this very well, it sets itself apart with great extras. Kayak’s Price Alerts feature sends you a weekly email with the best deals for the upcoming trip you’re planning. After you’ve booked, the My Trips section saves your flight, car rental, and hotel information in one place.


Google Chrome is arguably the best browser you could use for your iPhone. It allows you to sync your browsing experience for all your devices. Other cool features include speedy navigation and a simple and intuitive interface. Open as many tabs as you want and browse incognito without saving your history.


iHeartRadio is perfect for people who want access to their favorite radio stations anytime, anywhere. It’s a free app that lets you find over a thousand Live Stations from coast to coast. And, if you’re just feeling like a certain genre or artist, you can create a commercial-free, custom station for your music.


What Top Ten iPhone App list would be complete without Instagram? Instagram is probably one of the most talked-about photography apps around. It’s free and really easy to use. You can set your photos to a wide range of filters and make any photo instantly more artistic. What’s even better is that you can choose to share it on Facebook, Twitter or email effortlessly.


Finding the right restaurant is always a struggle. What’s the best place, what are its best dishes, and what do they cost? We want answers and we want them quickly. Of course, poring over reviews and prices should be simple enough, but Foodspotting makes the experience even simpler and more specific. With Foodspotting, you can not only find restaurants but specific dishes and actually see what the dishes look like. A must-have for all foodies!


And who doesn’t have a Facebook account? Stay connected with all your friends with the Facebook app. The app has recently been rebuilt so that it’s faster and easier to use.


Your Bank App

Get access to your bank account through your iPhone, iPod or iPad with your bank’s app. You can get your account information and locate the nearest branches if you need to withdraw some cash or speak to someone from your bank.
