10 Must Have Apps for the New iPad or iPhone User

top10

Did you get a new iPhone, iPad or iPod touch for the holidays? Then chances are you’re wondering which Apps you should grab from the App Store first. There are literally over 1 Million Apps in the App Store and you could easily find dozens or hundreds of Apps to install every time you look. However, here are 10 to get you started right away.

 

YouTube

When the iPhone first came out Apple had a built-in version of YouTube. However, those days are gone now. If you want to watch YouTube videos on your iDevice then the best thing to do is download the YouTube App. You can sign into your account and see your favorites, uploads, subscriptions, etc. It’s way better than the built-in App ever was.

Hey! Be sure to check out my YouTube channel here.

Google Maps

Your new iDevice has Apple Maps built-in and while Apple Maps has improved since its initial launch, it still pales by comparison of Google Maps. Google Maps will give you turn-by-turn directions and many many many more points of interest.

Navigon USA

Google Maps is great, but if you’re looking for a full featured gps turn-by-turn navigation App that doesn’t rely on a constant data connection, then you should check out the Navigon line of Apps. Navigon is full featured with downloadable maps so that you don’t have to be constantly connected to the internet while you’re driving, especially through spotty rural areas.

Facebook, Twitter and Instagram

If you’re the least bit into social media then you’re going to want the top three social networking Apps right off the bat. There are many others, but these are the three people are going to want right away.

Get them here:

Facebook iTunes.

Twitter iTunes.

Instagram iTunes.

Although the Twitter App above is FREE, my favorite Twitter App is Tweetbot for iPhone . and here for iPad .

 

PicPlayPost and Flipagram

Speaking of social, you’re probably going to be posting lots of pics online too from all your holiday activities. PicPlayPost allows you to combine multiple photos/video together and Flipagram allows you to combine multiple photos together in a slideshow.

Apple Remote

apple-remote

I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that if you got an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch that you also have iTunes running on a computer somewhere or an Apple TV. If that’s the case you’re definitely going to want to get Apple Remote. This App allows you to remote control your Apple TV or iTunes on your computer wirelessly via WiFi. This latest update even controls iTunes Radio!

1Password

1Password_iPad_mini

In this world of hacking and identity theft, having and managing good passwords couldn’t be more important. My absolute favorite password manager is 1Password. It can not only manage all your passwords and logons for your various sites, but it can store other sensitive info such as credit card numbers, secure notes, serial numbers and more. It can also help you by generating random, long, secure passwords and then remember them. If you have a Mac or PC you can also get the Mac or PC version and sync the encrypted 1Password file so that your passwords are up to date on all your devices.

Open Table and OneTap Movies

onetap-opentable

Dinner and a Movie tonight? This is a common date scenario. Well these two Apps will help you tremendously in this area. Open Table will show you restaurants in your area that have tables available and even let you book your reservation right on the spot. OneTap Movies is still my favorite for being the FASTEST app and simply answering the question what times are the movies playing that I want to see at my local theater?

Taxi Magic and Uber

uber_iPhone5

If you’re traveling and you are in need of being picked up and dropped off, then you’ll definitely want to check out Taxi Magic and Uber. Taxi Magic actually ties into the taxi booking system in several major cities and allows you to schedule a taxi pickup right from the App. If you’re in a area that they’re not setup for direct booking, it will list the taxi companies in the area and let you call them. Uber takes it up a notch by letting you summon a “black car” or “suv” to pick you up and drop you off. Both apps allow you to pay right from the App.

Temple Run 2

OK, it’s fun time. There are more games on the App Store than probably any other category. So you’ll always have your source for entertainment. Temple Run 2 is an addictive game where you control the character running at top speed through a maze of obstacles.

Black Friday 2013 Ads App - BlackFriday.fm

3 Black Friday Apps You Should Have

black_friday_news2

Yes it’s that time of year again. That time of year that we give thanks on Thursday and some are willing to trample others to save a few bucks on Friday. Honestly I try to avoid going out on Black Friday as much as possible. However, I enjoy a good deal as much as the next person. So rather than try to comb through the newspaper on Thanksgiving over rely on emails from businesses I’ve done business with in the past, I love having all the best deals in the palm of my hand. You could probably get by with any of these Black Friday Apps, but I thought I’d share my pick for the 3 best ones based on the amount of deals they have, ease of use and feature set.

 

Black Friday 2013 Ads App

black_friday_2013

This App is for iPhone and iPod touch only and doesn’t have an iPad version. It’s also not the prettiest of the bunch. It’s mostly text based, but that keeps the app running fast and lets you easily see exactly what you want with out too many graphics. The 1st screen is a news screen that is constantly updated with any late breaking deals. Once you go to the Stores tab you can drill down on a particular store and see the actual ads for given products or deals. You can also search deals by category instead of going store by store which is nice. Once you find the deals you want you can add them to a shopping list right in the app. You can also enter an email address if you like to be alerted for late breaking deals.

You can get it here iTunes.

 

Black Friday Shopping

black_friday_shopping

This app is much more visual. You’ll see the actual store ads right off the bat as well as store logos. You can browse by ads, by stores or by deals. There’s a news section and a search feature. Also this is a Universal App for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. Not really any other bells and whistles. Just a clean UI and fast loading.

You can get it here iTunes.

 

TGI Black Friday

TGI_black_friday

This is also a Universal App for iPhone, iPod touch and IPad. Like the 1st App TGI Black Friday allows you to browse by featured deals, stores or categories and you can add deals to a list. However, it’s more visually appealing than the 1st one. It has a few nice touches such as store open times (even the ones that will be open Thanksgiving – sheesh). Of the 3 I kinda like this one best. Again you can’t go wrong with any of them as they operate as advertised, but I really like the feel of this one.

You can get it here iTunes

 

Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Black Friday and Cyber Monday!

 

Frametastic

Frametastic 2.0 with Instagram Video Publishing

frametastic_iphone5

Once Instagram opened the doors to allow videos to be uploaded that weren’t recorded by the Instagram App, then App Developers started making Apps to allow you to composite multiple photos or videos together to share on Instagram as videos. One of the ones I’m really liking now for stills is Frametastic. This App, like many other apps allows you to put two or more photos together. However, unlike all the other picture stitching apps, this one will create an animation that zooms into each frame full size. Then you can save it as a video and share it on Instagram or any other social media site.

The process starts selecting the layout you want and then populating the layout with the photos of your choice. If you want to make a video you will need to do the in-app purchase of $1.99. So while the app is technically free, you will need to pay the $1.99 fee to unlock the video slideshow feature.

Here’s a sample video that I uploaded to Vimeo directly form the App.

The Walking Dead: Dead Yourself

Dead Yourself for Halloween

deadyourself_iphone5

It’s not secret that there is a fascination with all things zombies. The Walking Dead is back for another season on AMC and they have updated their Dead Yourself App so that you can turn yourself into a “walker”. The App allows you to take a photo or use an existing photo. From there you can change your eyes, mouth and add other gory items to complete your zombie look. I’m a fan of Walking Dead and this app has been awesome to turn my closest friends into walkers. :-) You can chose between the New Season 4 looks or the Classic Season 3 looks. Once you have your new look complete, you can then share it via Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Email and SMS. You can also save it to the Camera Roll. While the App is Free, it will put a Walking Dead watermark on the bottom of the photo. There’s enough of a variety of eyes, mouths, and other accents to make your look really custom.

You can get the Dead Yourself App here from the iTunes
