The app offers smart playback option featuring speed boost function, silence-trimming for talk shows and a volume boost for when listening in a noisy environment.

So, one can easily sync Podcast subscriptions and listen to all his/her devices.

#2 Space by Thix

The end outcomes of Space by Thix are most likely to depend on how you approach the app. In case, if you are looking for a tool to explore the cosmos then you can choose apps like Sky Guide or Redshift but if want a tiny miniature universe you can build yourself, Space is ideal.

The app doesn’t hand-hold. Rather, you are left to fend for yourself, figuring out the somewhat opaque interface, and dropping celestial bodies onto the screen. Once the user figures out how do they interact, he will find a happily swirling solar system.

One of the major disadvantages of the iphone application is that the planets will mostly appear as tiny specs and navigation is a touch clunky. But overall, there is something magical about having a tiny galaxy in the palm of your hand.

#3 iA Writer

Have you ever thought about writing on an iphone? If so, one must consider the iA writer app, a smart, svelte writing tool that’s packed full of the features you need for writing on the go.

Speaking about its functionalities, when tapping away at the keyboard you get a toolbar with cursor arrows and markdown formatting buttons. This allows you to get more complex text or use it for HTML. At the top of the screen sits a word count and reading time prediction. Collapse the keyboard and swipe from the right for a markdown preview and export options. Moreover, the mobile app even offers to access the iCloud documents list that sync with iA Writer on other platforms.

There is a night mode and focus oriented view options and all of this when combined makes a writing experience unmatched on an iphone. Although, the app cannot be used to write a novel but a few hundred words on an iphone seems less painful.

#4 Focus Keeper

Focus and burnout are two commonplace issues faced by people in work. Too often, one can get distracted from tasks. While at the same time working for long hours without a break can lead to severe fatigue. Focus keeper is such an app that deals with both.

The app features timer which is loosely based on the promdoro technique (a time management method) and often recommends splitting your time between 25 minute and five minute breaks. After four hour sessions, it is always advisable to take a longer break of about half an hour.

Due to its clutter-free and easy to use nature, the app is recommended by most of the iphone apps development companies. In addition to this, the timer combines a minimal iOS-like design aesthetic with hints of a real-world timer’s dial. One can easily delve into statistics, adjust work/break lengths and choose alternate alarm and ‘ticking’ noises.

#5 Mextures

Modern iphones with some seriously impressive camera hardware are capable of taking clean, vibrant shots. Hence, it’s no surprise that the users hell-bent on slathering said images in filters and end up messing them up.

Mextures is an extreme example for providing a theoretically unlimited number of layers to play with, each with the interesting effect such as grit, grain, light leaks, gradients applied. Moreover, each layer can be fine-tuned in terms of opacity and blend mode. Thus, an end user can get anything from subtle film textures to seriously eye-popping grunge effects.

#6 Poison Maps

The iphone app is all about “point of interests”, hence named as poison maps. Its wealth of information from OpenStreetMap shoved into an app and twinned with an interface that makes it a cinch to drill down into categories.

So, if you are mooching around for a fancy a bite to eat? Tap on the food and drink icon. Something quick? Tap Fast Food. Pizza? Sounds good.

Each tap filters POI’s and navigation buttons displayed and the arrows point at nearby locations where the user is zoomed in. Everything is extremely responsive and the maps, icons are pretty clear and easy to understand.

#7 Duolingo

The iphone app is extremely generous given the quality of the app and its potential for helping you learn a new language. It’s packed full of bite-size quizzes that you can dip into at any time, and that gradually build your vocabulary and grammar in any of the ten supported languages.
