Even in 2017, one of the best arguments you can make for the iPhone is the apps. The apps on iOS are still of a higher quality and have a level of attention and detail you just don’t get anywhere else. If you just got an iPhone and are looking to download and try all the best apps, you came to the right place.
Gmail: If you want something from the Android world that you’re familiar with, download Gmail. It’s basically the same app with similar UI.
Outlook: Gmail is a bit basic. Outlook integrates email and calendar in one app. Plus, their Focused Inbox is really good at showing just the important emails.
Spark: If you want a free, easy to use, yet feature rich email client that’s available on iPhone, iPad and Mac, Spark is it.
Google Maps: In the west, Apple Maps is quite good. But in Asian countries, that’s still not the case. So one of the first things you’ll want to do after getting a new iPhone is to download the Google Maps app.
Dropbox: There’s no exposed file system or a file management app in iOS. If you’re just starting out, I’d suggest making Dropbox your file management system. Put all your important documents and pictures in Dropbox. So now it’s automatically available on all your connected devices.
Alternative services like OneDrive, Box are available in the App Store as well.
An iPhone isn’t complete without social apps. So grab the trifecta of social apps – Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat from the App Store. If you’re into it, get the Twitter app as well. Tweetbot ($9.99) is a third-party client for Twitter and in my opinion, it’s superior in design and interaction (plus no ads).
All the usual suspects for staying in touch with your friends, family, and coworkers are available in the App Store. WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, WeChat, Line, Telegram should take care of your personal communications.
