Top apps for the iPhone 631st October 2014
It's not just the looks of the iPhone 6 that have won over critics and consumers the world over. Its beefed-up processing power, and in particular the way in which it effortlessly copes with users switching between apps and everyday tasks, has also won widespread praise.
This is, of course, great news if you really want to make the most of the technological potential of the iPhone 6 and, more specifically, to take advantage of the huge number of apps available for the device.
But, of course, some apps are (much) better than others. So, where to begin? At the most basic level, a phone, however smart, is all about keeping in touch with other people. Apps like Whatsapp and Skype not only make this easier, but they also make it much cheaper, so these should be top of your list of things to install, especially if you get an iPhone on a pay-as-you-go or limited data deal.
Once you've got the basics sorted, then you may want to consider how best to network on the go. Facebook has invested plenty of time and money in making its iPhone app user-friendly, and it shows, while LinkedIn Plus gives you the chance to network with fellow professionals on the move or from the comfort of your couch.
Away from the networking, whether it's with friends and family or prospective new employers, a whole range of apps have either been specifically launched or tweaked to take advantage of the extended screen size of the iPhone 6. If reading on the go is your thing, Kindle for the iPhone may not be the best-looking app out there, but it gives you access to an unbeatable number and variety of books, all of which look great displayed on the cutting-edge HD screen.
Other apps that really make the most of the market-leading display include Photoshop Express which, while not of a professional standard, can certainly help you jazz up any pictures you take with the widely-praised camera before you share them on Instagram or Facebook. And, of course, no smartphone user should be without Google Maps, which again, is even easier to use thanks to Apple's decision to follow its rivals and add almost an extra inch to the screen size.
