We are over halfway through with 2017 and if you still haven’t refreshed your Apple iPhone’s app collection, now is the time to do so. With thousands of apps to choose from on the Apple App Store, it’s not easy choosing which ones would be the best suited for you. Nobody has time anymore to go through all the reviews, especially since most are just vague and limited to that person’s understanding of the app.
To keep your iPhone running smooth and steady, it’s important that only the most important apps use your storage and memory. Let’s look at 2017’s 10 best Apple apps which are absolutely essential for your iPhone and why.
- Get Organized with Google Keep
I haven’t been able to find a better to-do list as of yet. Google Keep is simple, fast and easy to use. Plus, it’s well integrated with your Gmail account and can be accessed from anywhere, anytime.
Evernote and other heavy organizers are probably kept best for those people who can afford to utilize the needed input of time. But, this is what makes Google Keep really great. Which is the fact you can make as many lists and events as you’d like within a matter of seconds. For people like me, simplicity is key and Google Keep does a wonderful job of doing exactly that.
It’s available for free for Apple iPhones and iPads. Check this link out to download it now.
Don’t Stop Scanning with Office Lens
There are a ton of document scanners out there, but let me tell you this, Microsoft made everyone’s lives a whole lot easier with the Office Lens. Being free is one thing, but the best of all is how easy it is to use.
I really liked ScanBot and a couple of other apps before Microsoft’s Office Lens came along. After those other iOS apps started bombarding me with ads and premium upgrade offers, enough was enough. I don’t mind or advocate against purchasing apps, but forcing people to do so and taking out basic features is a reason to uninstall right away.
Again, simplicity wins the argument. And for now, Office Lens does a great job of the need to scan a wide array of objects and share them with the world. It also allows you to choose what file size you’d like to share!
Download it today and check out Office Lens by Microsoft here.

Stay Connected with WhatsApp
WhatsApp continues to dominate the instant messaging world. Some of you might be slowly moving towards full-time use of Facebook Messenger or WeChat, but WhatsApp is still the king of IM. The ability to share more now and a wide variety of file types makes WhatsApp great.
Compared to all other IM apps I’ve recently used, WhatsApp is still highly efficient and the best at keeping you connected. Other apps just don’t have the functionality which WhatsApp does, no matter where you are in the world. Connecting with your phone number is even better, while the privacy settings are enough to keep you safe and far, far away from those annoying chatters.
If you are one of the very few people left in the world which haven’t already downloaded WhatsApp for iOS, please do so here. It’s totally free.
Find Love with Tinder
For all those hopeless romantics out there, Tinder is still your best shot at finding someone to love. Whether that’s short or long-term, is up to you, but Tinder is where the action is still at. OKCupid and all of these other apps are now honestly worthless and a waste of time.
Tinder is trending and will keep doing so strongly into 2018. So, keep your hopes high and your head up. Love is right around the corner for you, hopefully. There are some apps which offer similar, but different services compared to Tinder, but for now, Tinder is still one of the best Apple apps of 2017.
Tinder is free, unless you want to go with the premium features to really up your love game. Get Tinder for iOS right here.
Best Time Pass: Reddit
If you haven’t ever used Reddit, now is the best time. Reddit is the ultimate social network. You’ll forget about Facebook and want to spend your entire day on Reddit. There is just a whole new world to be explored on Reddit for iOS. The app is working better than ever and Reddit is a unconquerable universe of cute cat pics, funny memes and some of the best advice for literally any topic which comes to mind.
The way Reddit is made out may seem a little daunting at first, but you’ll get the hang of it. If you need to kill some time and can’t imagine being bored, then Reddit is definitely one of the best Apple Apps you need for your iPhone right now!

Entertainment Unleashed with Netflix
Netflix is now available in more countries than it ever was and isn’t as expensive as some people were expecting it to be. For those countries which have slow and disruptive internet connections, Netflix is a great investment. Why? Because Netflix is the fastest video buffering service you’ll be able to find and maximize your internet usage as well.
Some countries are getting a one-month, unconditional subscription, which makes it a deal of a lifetime. You cannot go wrong with Netflix and without a doubt, it is the best movie/tv show streaming service out there. Also, it works great on any iOS device!
Download Netflix for your iPhone/iPad since this is one of the best Apple apps out there right now for 2017.

Moving Around with Uber
Widely known, recognized and easy to use, Uber continues to dominate the independent transport world of ‘private taxis’. It gives people a chance to make some extra money, while providing users the easy and comfort of knowing how much you’ll be paying, who you’re going with and what to expect during your ride.
This decision process could not have been made easier and Uber has turned the world around. The Uber app for iOS is extremely efficient, allows the use of cash or credit/debit and can be downloaded here. I’m still wondering why it has such a disappointing rating on the Apple App Store. Uber is the final app on our list of best Apple apps for 2017 and I’m pretty sure it’ll continue to be on here for the foreseeable future.
