Just bought an iPhone? Or perhaps you’re not quite up with the new technology? Whatever it is, the following apps are a great way to turn your new smartphone into something more so you can use it to its full capacity.
Whether you see it on an ad or knew about it when itfirst came out, most people have heard or know of the Shazam app. It can help you identify any song you hear, anytime and anywhere. Just hold your phone up to the sound source and within seconds you’ll get more information like the name of the track and artist, videos, streaming lyrics, exclusive content and more – straight to your iPhone.
The perfect shopping companion, RedLaser allows you to scan a bar code and get the product information straight in your hands. It can tell you prices from various stores both online and locally or can add items into a gift list for kids or partners. The app’s scans sometimes fail, but more often than not RedLaser works smoothly.
Another well-known application for iPhones and other smartphones, Urbanspoon will help you pick somewhere to eat based on your location, budget and type of food you choose. It also has a slot machine that will pick a random place based on one control (for example, your current location). It also includes reviews, contact information and directions.
Like your own personal assistant in your pocket, Evernote is a notepad on your phone that synchronises with desktop and browser software. You can jot down a note, take a photo, record a voice memo or copy an image to remember later. There is a paid version, but the only down side to the free one is there are data limits.
- Social media apps
This may not be a singular app, but applications for social media sites like Facebook and Twitter are essential to any iPhone user and are very similar in style and accessibility. While you can access the mobile websites through your browser, the applications will save you a lot of time when it comes to loading and functionality.
