20 Apps You Can’t Live Without


1. Dropbox

Dropbox is a great cloud service that automatically syncs a folder of files between multiple computers (Windows, Mac, or Linux). This app extends Dropbox to the iPhone and includes a built-in reader within the app for PDFs, image files, and Microsoft Office files.

2. Evernote

Once you get used to typing on a virtual keyboard (and it honestly took me over a year to do it), then these devices are great for note taking, and Evernote is a great note taking app. It is similar to Dropbox in that it saves data locally but syncs it across all your machines and devices.

3. Due

There are a ton of to-do apps on iPhone but I prefer Due for its simplicity and its audio alerts. However, this is an iPhone-only task list. If you want something that can sync with your PC, Mac, or the Web, then try 2Do or Things.

4. Tripit

I love Tripit. It is by far the best app I’ve found for keeping track of all my travel itineraries. It is powered by some excellent backend systems. You simply forward your confirmation emails (or use the Gmail plugin to do it automatically) for your flights, hotels, rental cars, and more to Tripit and it automatically organizes them into trips with all your details and confirmation numbers.

5. Ego

Even better than Analytics App for a quick-glance dashboard is Ego. It shows basic data from Google Analytics as well as a bunch of other sources, including Squarespace, Twitter, and Feedburner.

6. Twitter

The official Twitter app (formerly known as Tweetie) is still the best Twitter client on iPhone (although Osfoora is catching up). Twitter itself is an amazing instant-intelligence engine. Two other great social media apps for iPhone are Google+ and Foursquare.

7. Reeder

Twitter has largely replaced RSS for me for finding and filtering the latest news. However, I still track some RSS feeds and the best tool I’ve found to do it with is Reeder. It syncs with Google Reader so it’s easy to flip between the mobile app and the desktop, plus the app lets you share to Twitter (and Facebook) and save to Instapaper and ReadItLater.

8. Amazon Kindle

I’ve never fully warmed up to the Amazon Kindle e-reader, but I’m a big fan of the Kindle iPhone app. Since it was released I’ve read a lot more books simply because my phone is always with me and I can pull it out and read a few pages anytime I’ve got a couple minutes free. Alternatives: Nook, iBooks, and Kobo.

10. Audible

As much as I like the Kindle ebooks, I actually consume more books as audiobooks via Audible. In the past you could download these and sync them via iTunes. But Audible now has its own app, which lets you connect to your Audible library and download over the air, and even gives you a self-contained player optimized for audiobooks.

11. Instagram

If you don’t have Instagram at this point in life, then it’s time to start.  This is the up and already here app uses pictures to communicate with the masses. You can control the amount of followers you have by setting your account to private and share photos of your life with the world.

12. Pandora

For the music lovers of the world, Pandora is your own personal jukebox-you could even call it the background for your life. Just plug in the artist or song you want to here and the Pandora will be play songs within the genre and style of the typed in song or artist.

13. YouTube

Upload your videos and start a YouTube channel. This app allows you to upload video ranging from topics on fashion and style, show casing talents to politics. Connect and share your thoughts with the world.

14. Keek

Set up quick videos on your I-Phone. Another communication app you can use to give your followers inside sneak peeks into your life. This app is similar to YouTube only with Keek, you can expect the videos to be shorter in length.

15. Social Cam

Like Keek, Social Cam is way for you to communicate through videos.  This app allows you to record  and share the best moments of your life with friends and family.


16. ABC Player

Missed an episode of your favorite show on the ABC network? No problem. This app is your back-up. What ABC player does is allow you to watch the shows that you’ve missed while providing you with sneak peeks and extra footage.


17. The CW Network

This app essentially does what ABC Player does for the show on The CW Network. Including but not limited to sneak peeks, extra footage, the works.

18. NBC News

NBC News is another news app that provides you with world news on culture and the latest on the world around you.


19. Daily News Mobile

This app gives you the latest in news and keeps you up to date on what’s going on in your community in a way that is quick, easy and simple.
