Just the Best: Apps

There are now over 250,000 apps available in the Apple App Store from over 50,000 developers. Your iOS device is very powerful out of the box, but with the wide variety of third-party apps available, it can do just about anything. Trying to cover all 250,000 apps in a buyer’s guide is a bit futile. Instead, we focused on just the best in every category. We’ve pulled out all the stops (and most of our hair) to find Just the Best apps and have come up with some much-needed sub-categories to help you zero in on what you’re looking for.
