iPhone 5 Apps


When Apple announced the new features of iPhone 5, users, as well as developers knew that this device is going to provide them with endless opportunities. New iPhone applications have been developed with different iPhone generation. So as to make up for all of these changes and uphold compatibility between the different iphone types, programmers compile many versions of their applications for each iOS. Apart from the various built-in apps, Apple brought in more third-party apps that were specifically designed for iPhone. The more applications you get, the faster your works get done.


Google map

Google Maps utilizes the GPS functionality of smartphones which allows you to pinpoint your current location. The app determine where you are, and drop a virtual pin on the map in a Birdseye view. You can then of course use the pinch to zoom function of the retina display to zoom in to the map to get a closer look at your surroundings. The pin will also be labelled with the current location which can be handy if you are lost. In some areas, you even have the option to view the map in street view. This allows you to view a 3D map which uses actual photos taken from a car in the location.


It is an “app” and has existed mostly in the mobile environment on smart phones and tablets. Instagram is a mobile app designed to work with the camera that comes standard on most smart phones and tablets. It allows the user to add filters to the photographs they take with those cameras and make them look more like photographs taken by a really high-end DSLR camera. Then, the user can categorize, organize, send, and share these beautiful photographs while others can comment on the pictures that their friends have posted.


The newer version of the Facebook app is much easier to navigate than its predecessor. This is an essential app for anyone who wants to stay completely hooked in to their social networking. Get alerts and respond to comments anytime of day or night. This, without a doubt, is one of the top apps for iPhone available today.


This is the official twitter app, and just like the site itself, delivers on its promise of connecting you with your friends all the time. The app is especially helpful with uploading pics, with a single touch interface whenever you want to upload the latest picture you have taken. You can @reply, follow the latest news, and do all things twitter is known for.


The Pocket app is known as the best bookmarking app which is free and was earlier known as Read It Later. It has new features including the ability to view videos and images seamlessly which is part of its simple and classy interface.


This app turns your iPhone into a digital archive that can house and sort all of your media including pictures, written notes, video, and sound files. You can then search the database for anything you are looking for from either your iPhone or computer. One of the reasons this is one of the top apps for iPhone is all of this great functionality comes for free. But wait, there’s more. EverNote has character recognition for the photos you take, so that signs and posters you have your pictures taken next to can be easily searched without having to manually name the files yourself.
