Best Apps for iPhone 2017

by - Wednesday, December 13, 2017

Almost everything that you do on your phone will be on an app, from the Pizza Hut app to the Stocks app. There’s millions of apps on the App Store, which allow you to check the latest news online, the bus timetable, and everything in between. Since the App Store has millions of apps available, it can sometimes be difficult to find the right one. In iOS 11, at the request of developers, Apple separated the Games section with the rest of the apps, since games were dominating, giving no chance to the app developers. This was a smart move, but it’s still hard to find the right apps, especially when the most popular apps might not always be the best. Today we’ll be having a look at a few standout apps on the App Store.


The iPhone has a brilliant camera. Depending on the iPhone you have, you’ll either have a 5,8, or 12 MP shooter on the back of your iPhone. The 12MP shooters on the iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, 7, 7 Plus, 8, and 8 Plus are some of the best cameras available on phones today. However, you can take even better photos with the help of Prime photo app. With gesture based controls for ISO, shutter speed, and focus, you’re sure to get the perfect shot every time, as long as you have time to fiddle with the controls. If you don’t, you can always use auto mode, which automatically chooses the ideal shutter speed and ISO. In my experience, setting the ISO lower and the shutter speed slower makes for a better photo, although you’ll need to hold your iPhone extremely still in low light situations.


Email is hectic. From subscriptions you never signed up to, to important emails from friends and family, it’s difficult to wade through all of that and just read what’s important. If you have a Gmail account, all that can be fixed, thanks to Google’s Inbox app. Inbox automatically uses filters to sift through your email before you even get it, to ensure that you only read what’s important to you. If it’s algorithms miss something, you can set your own filters, as well as mark things as spam, so that Google’s algorithm adjusts accordingly. Overall, it’s a great app, and I’d highly recommend it.


Reddit, dubbed “the homepage of the internet” is a forum with many weird and wonderful people. It’s great for checking the latest news online, or funny gifs and cat videos. With possibly the largest collection of cute animal gifs, there’s no reason not to get it, unless you don’t want to consume many of your waking hours to it. Personally, I spend far too much time on it, mainly because of it’s exciting and engaging content. If you go “too deep” into reddit, you can run into some weird and sometimes disturbing content, but as long as you stay on the more pleasant subreddits, you’ll be fine.

Hopefully, with this list of great apps for the iPhone, you’ve downloaded a few new apps, which will make your photos look better, your email tidier, and your downtime more exciting. If you’re looking for more apps, watch out on the App store every day - apple usually puts up stellar apps on their “App of the day” pane. I suggest you check them out.
