A list of 100 Essential Apps for iPad/iPhone that will improve your lifestyle! Although I can’t guarantee anything… Not all will work on both iPhone/iPod and iPad and the prices may vary depending on location and iOS.
1. Facebook – Free
Got Facebook? Of course you have! The most popular website for Social Networking has got a free App which is easy to navigate and looks appealing. Now you can be anti-social and social at the same time! What, you don’t have a Facebook? Maybe you should just stick to writing letters.
2. Angry Birds – £0.59/$0.99
Perhaps not the most essential app in this list but let’s face it, until you try the most addictive physics-based bird-flinging game on the App Store, you really aren’t a true apple fanatic.
3. Twitter – Free
The best place to stalk celebrities and erm.. stalk more celebrities? Yeah I hate the thing. But there must be something appealing about it, perhaps to promote your business or find out when your favourite band are touring. So get your free Twitter App now and find out what Justin Beiber had for breakfast. Fascinating, right?!
4. Keynote – £5.99/$9.99
Make a moving presentation, and take it anywhere. A powerful presentation App for use with the iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. Keynote gives you ways to create interesting slideshows while being able to take them anywhere.
5. GarageBand – £2.99/$5.99
Did your jazz fusion band never really take off? GarageBand lets you mix different instruments together to create your own melodies. Many instruments available including guitars, keyboard, drums and tambourine, while a stylish and user-friendly interface allows anyone to create songs.
6. Hipstamatic – £1.19/$1.99
A fun little camera App that allows you to change the virtual lens, film and flash, giving your photos that awesome vintage/retro look. Essentially it’s just adding cool effects to your snapshots while providing you with an old-school camera interface. Turning hipster has never been so cheap!
7. Mint – Free
A virtual money-manager, Mint tracks your income, spending and investments after you enter your financial data to the password-protected site. It will also alert you should your spending go over a preset budget or if your credit needs attention. One of the best free finance related Apps.
8. Spotify – Free
The music revelation that is Spotify, now available as an App. Spotify allows you to play music streamed from the internet for free, and save them to playlists. Not every band can be found on it but it’s collection is pretty extensive.
