10 Must-Have Apps for Your iPhone

image

The basic group of apps you need on your Apple device is a subjective selection. The perfect app for one person is a dud to another; the app one person uses daily may be a headache to someone else. Risking a barrage of disagreement and discontent, I pose the following list of apps as the ideal home base for any iDevice. After years of slogging back and forth, trying this app, rejecting that one, testing this one, discarding that one, the seemingly endless task is done. Here is the final cut, the apps I found I was using over and over, without complaint, lamentation, or griping.

In Russia, except for the Mafia, homophobes, and hackers, there are normal people. And these two men present you their new product.

There are many apps on the market that help to improve productivity; scheduling apps are even more plentiful. Discussing them is not even fashionable any more. However, even though the App Store is filled to the brim with many such apps boasting creative design and numerous functional abilities, we still keep looking for something that promises to further boost our productivity, something that will really help us never forget important tasks and feel more confident.


UPDATE: LogMeIn Ignition Now USELESS Amid Questionable Business Moves.

Updated Article 1/25/14:

WOW. I had to update this previously glowing article of what had been a well-made app and service to reflect the poor business decisions made by LogMeIn.  First, they had one of the more expensive apps at $20 to $30, and more recently, it was as much as $130. But I still recommended it because it connected to their FREE service, making the up-front investment worthwhile.

Now, the Free service is gone, and the app has been pulled and is useless. Users have seven days to convert to a paid account of $50 to $100 or more. When that happens to a free or even $0.99 app, it's one thing and understandable, but with $30 to $130 app, that's a bad investment and bad policy.

Noted is a Simple Gesture-Based Note-Taking App for iOS

image

The Tack Mobile team wanted to create an app with effortless note-taking capabilities. The final product is Noted (Free), a straightforward, gesture-based note app that derives inspiration from the simplicity of sticky notes.

You can find several note-taking apps on iTunes, but Noted tries to keep distracting interface elements to a minimum. Instead, gestures are used as shortcuts, with most of the actions only involving a finger swipe or two.
