The latest release from Apple: the iPhone 5 possesses everything that you require from a smartphone. From having 4G LTE, to a larger screen, free turn-by-turn navigation, a speedier A6 processor and a lighter, sleeker redesign, it is no wonder that stores are struggling to keep up with the stock demand. Last week we saw queues decrease but “Out of stock” signs appear, repeatedly being showcased in mobile phone store windows.
Despite this, individuals are still eager to make their orders as no one is getting put off this must-have gadget. Not only does it boast a redesign with new features, it has given developers the platform to make the next level of generation apps. From covering every day recommended apps, to entertainment and social media apps we want to show off the 5 greatest apps in all their glory.
Find my IPhone
With a sleeker design, the chance of misplacing your IPhone could be even higher. This app not only will help you locate your phone but it will also protect your data. It is simple to use, as you will need to login using your Apple ID and then you’re good to go. It works by using GPS to determine your location, and then producing a noise so you can hear it. This noise will also work when the phone is on silent. This is currently rated 4.5 stars on iTunes and if you are often forgetful this app can save you a lot of stress and protect you from potential thieves.
This is more of an every day app, taking into account your eating routine. If you want to lose or gain weight then this app is for you. It is a free calorie-counting app that allows you to enter your weight, your goal weight and how many calories you should be eating each day to achieve that goal. You can then use the daily diary to calculate how many calories are in the food you’re eating. The calorie counter has more than 2 million food items in its database, more than any other iPhone counter. You can also use the daily graph, weekly graph and monthly graph to monitor how many calories you are under or over within these time periods.
This is a music-making app, which has been designed by Apple itself. If you are looking to get in touch with your musical side and get creative, this will definitely help kill your boredom. It has virtual instruments as well as the ability to loop and edit your track. This is great for making music on the go so you won’t miss an opportunity if you have some ideas that spring to mind.
For just £2.99 this app is another Apple bargain. You will now be able to view your movies in HD, with the ability to stream them at a much faster rate. If you’re travelling on the bus or the train, you will now be able to watch movies as you travel. You can also record and edit videos to publish to YouTube or your email. You can even export different size videos from medium, to large, to HD.
This retro photo app enables you to take photographs and apply different effects to each one. You can also upload one of your current photos in your album and then apply the effect. Effects include: normal, amaro, rise, Hudson, x-pro II, Sierra, Lo-fi, earlybird, sutro, toaster, brannan, inkwell, walden, hefe, Valencia, Nashville, 1977 and kelvin. Over 80 million users love Instagram so you can see their photographs as well.
