5 Essential Apps Every iPhone User Needs To Have

Having an iPhone comes with a bit of exclusivity. There are lots of useful apps that one can only install in an iPhone. You may feel like you don’t need it right now but the time will come when you will wish that you’ve installed it on your phone a few days back.

Every day, new apps are being introduced to the Apple Store. With that, choosing the right apps to install on your iPhone can be a bit difficult. If you also feel the struggle, we decided to list down the top five apps that every iPhone owner should have.

  1. Google

This just too obvious. As matter of fact, no matter what phone you use, it would still be a good idea to have the Google app installed.


You never when you will come across a concept that you desperately need to search online. When using your phone, it can be a bit of a hassle to go to your browser and have to access the Google website from there.

Having a Google app on your iPhone makes things much more convenient and time-saving.

  1. 1Password

The good news about the internet is that there are endless virtual communities you can join. So, if you are ever in need of some information or personal feedback, you don’t have to resort to outside help. You can reach out through the social media channels that you are part of.

Perhaps, the only downside of having so many accounts from various social media is that sometimes, keeping track of your password is a hefty thing to do.

In that case, installing the 1Password app can surely come in handy. That way, when you log into your account using your iPhone, your password will automatically be there.

Of course, you can save your password even without the help of this app. The only trouble is that it is not safe. Hackers can steal your information in a blink of an eye. 1Password manages your passwords and keeps them safe so that only you can access them.

  1. Google Maps

Whether you are adventurous or a bit of the traditional, there will still come a time when you will pass by a town or city where you are not quite familiar with. In that case, having an app like Google Maps will most certainly be useful.

All you have to do is type where you currently and your desired destination. Before you know, you will be given instructions on how to get from Point A to Point B.

It can also help you look for alternative routes if you are ever stuck in a traffic jam and desperately needs to arrive at home or the office faster.

Google Maps is also a great app if you want to explore restaurants and other new venues that you have never been to before.

  1. Google Photos

There might be a lot of things that you can only dream of achieving but even so, you still need to value the process that you are in. After all, money and other materialistic items can be kept for centuries but memories cannot ever be brought back. This is why taking photos is such a thing for loads of young people.

Sure, you can always store your photos on your iPhone’s memory but you are bound to delete them sooner or later for the sake of installing more games and apps. In that case, having the Google Photos on your phone can help because you can store all your photos in the cloud. You will be able to save all of your favorite memories without having to compromise your need for more phone space.

  1. Due

Due dates are not just for students and writers. At some point, each and every one of us also face due dates from time to time. It might a bill that’s due tomorrow or a personal fitness class that you can only take on a specific date. Regardless of your status in life, it is important for you to be able to work with time.

The issue is that the human brain was not designed to keep tab of everything in our life. In this sense, you might want to download and install the Due app. All you have to do is list down the tasks or appointments that needs to be accomplished along with the further details. The app will repeatedly remind you about the things that you need to settle until you mark them as finished. It only costs a small fee to download this app but the result on your productivity is worth it.


If you love watching YouTube videos then how would you like to also bring your favorite clips with you wherever you go?

You could watch them while waiting for a friend to finish trying on some clothes at the mall or while taking a break from work.

Tubidy is not exactly an iPhone app. What you do here is access it through your phone’s browser. You can watch YouTube videos through the website alone and install them on your phone for offline use.
