We can’t believe it, but 2018 marks the 10-year anniversary of Apple’s App Store! Within the past decade, we’ve downloaded billions upon billions of apps that improved our lives. Okay, and maybe some that made us procrastinate for a bit.

But no matter what you love doing on your phone, Apple’s slogan rings true — there’s an app for that.

That’s why we’re bringing you a list of some of our favorite must-have iPhone apps that’ll make you wonder how you lived without them.


We’ll begin our list of great apps by taking a look at one of the best iPhone apps for photo editing. Focos is a fantastic choice for those who wish that the onboard editing app had more features yet don’t want to pay a subscription fee for Adobe Creative Cloud.

A quick, free download grants users the ability to get in-depth with their photo editing by adjusting lighting, contrast, sharpness, and as you’ve probably guessed, focus.

If that still isn’t enough for you, you can pay a one-time fee of $9.99 to gain lifetime access to all of Focos’ features. So grab your camera kit and start snapping pics. You’ll be amazed at the quality Focos brings to your images.


Podcasts are quickly becoming the hot new medium, especially since many of us travel for work. And while you have plenty of options to choose from, including Apple’s own Podcasts app, we recommend checking out Stitcher.

While it’s far from perfect (it locks up from time to time and the ads can get intrusive) Stitcher is by far the most robust free podcast app on the market.

You can create channels based on your interests, save and download episodes, and subscribe to podcasts from Stitcher’s easy to navigate menu.


For those who want a fast and easy way to transfer money between friend and family or even their bank, PayPal is a great choice. Best of all, transfer fees seem cheaper than those you’ll find in other apps such as Zelle and Venmo.


Once you’re done being productive, it’s time for a little fun. And what better way to relax and unwind than by nabbing a Victory Royale in Fortnite?

By now you’ve probably at least heard of Fortnite. It’s the game that celebrities, streamers, and gamers across the globe are obsessed with. It’s so popular that its developer, Epic Games, recently reported that the free-to-play game has brought in over $1 billion in in-game transactions.

If you’ve yet to experience the cartoonish fun of Fortnite, be sure to download it on your iPhone. The console and PC experience translates shockingly well to a mobile device, making it one of the best new apps for gamers.


Apple Maps is nice, but it isn’t exactly known for being the most accurate navigation app on the market. Instead of risking getting lost, we recommend checking out Waze.

In truth, Waze is a lot more than your everyday navigation app. It uses crowd-sourced information to generate real-time traffic results so you can make sure you arrive at your destination on time.
