Top Apps for iPhone



Tweetbot has long been a favorite among iOS users when it comes to Twitter clients and for good reason; it’s feature packed to the brim and has always had a user interface to die for.
Tweetbot 3 may be an all new purchase but it’s a completely new app that’s just as refined and feature packed as the last version.

Fantastical 2

Not only is Fantastical 2 one of the best calendar apps for iOS, it’s one of the most beautiful too.
The first version of Fantastical fit with the look and feel of iOS well enough but Fantastical 2 takes it to a whole new level.
Not only that, it combines Calendars and Reminders for the first time ever.



Launch Center Pro

Launch Center Pro by Contrast is the app to have if you want easy access and shortcuts to all your stuff in less than two taps.
With customizable menus and actions, your iPhone is yours to command.
With flattened menus, a new icon, and updated graphics, there’s a lot to like.


Mileage Log

Mileage Log+ which is also by Contrast apps is a gorgeous mileage tracker made specifically for iOS 7.
Those that have used Trip Cubby should be familiar with many of the features as it’s pretty much an update to it.
Additional features now include automatic route estimation, gorgeous maps, color coding, and more.


Foursquare is everyone’s favorite check-in service and it’s already been updated with support for iOS 7.
From the menu bars to the updated keyboard stylings, Foursquare has decked out the existing interface with elements that make it flow much better with iOS 7.
Even the icon’s received an overhaul as well.




Reeder 2

When Google Reader bit the dust, the original Reeder app did little but update to add support for Feedly.
With a completely new icon, interface, font set, and more, it’s a gorgeous update that nails what apps running on iOS 7 should look like. If you need an app to access RSS feeds from, Reeder is one of the best around.


Rdio hasn’t technically been updated for iOS 7 but it still looks great.
It’s actually been one of my favorite apps when it comes to design for a long time now.
Everything from the transparency of the menus to how the entire interface just flows so great together.

TeeVee 2

TeeVee 2 is an amazing little app that tells you in just a quick glance when your favorite shows are on.
You can view episode summaries, descriptions of different shows, and even receive alerts for upcoming shows if you choose.

Are you addicted to your iPad?

Our mobile devices make us happy, they are a convenient way to manage information and as the modern luxury life move forward we tend to spend so much time indoors.

This means we have more time and opportunity to use our iPads.

If you use your device lots then you might be interested in these funny little signs you are addicted to your iPad.


Double tapping


One of the best features of the iPad is the zoom in zoom out function, if you have an iPad or other Apple touch screen device then you knows how it works.

You double tap the screen to enlarge the area and the double tap to zoom action allows you to focus in on certain areas.

This is incredibly helpful on small screen devices and we do it without thinking about it.

So, distractedly double tapping real paper is one of the possible signs you are addicted to your iPad.



Pinching the page

The person who designed the two finger zoom in zoom out action is really brilliant.

Zoom into a photo or part of a page to have a closer look and when you are done just pinch the page to zoom out and move along is great and easy to do.

So easy that we do it without thinking about it, however, pinching real paper to reduce text size or to zoom out from an image will seem a little strange.

We can’t pinch real paper to reduce text size or zoom out from the photo. Weird uh?










It is always on hand


The iPad is a very handy portable device, it fits into almost everything from purses to backpacks and we can take it everywhere and whip it out at every possible moment to play games, record notes, and take photographs.

If your iPad is always on and in your hand then you may have a slight problem.


The waiting game


Our friends and family listen when we need them to and are patient when we need that as well.

However if people are waiting while you check something on your iPad then you may have a problem.

When your iPad interferes with your ability to engage people and participate in events then it may be a bit of an issue.

Put the device aside and focus on the people around you, the iPad will be there waiting for you later, don’t worry.


You fall asleep with it


The last sign that you may be addicted to your iPad is the following: falling asleep with it.

The portability of the iPad is wonderful and we can take it nearly anywhere, even to bed so sometimes we really don’t mean to fall asleep clutching our device.

If you feel yourself getting a little sleepy then put the iPad aside and get some rest.

You just may sleep a little better and dream about having real people by your side instead of a flat screen.
