The 8 Best Free iPhone Apps for 2015
We all have our own list of go-to apps and tools that we use on a daily basis, whether for social networking, keeping organized or simply keeping distracted. And as much as we love these tools, it can be easy to put the blinders on and not explore new – and possibly better – apps that have come about.
As of May 2015, the Apple Store has more than 1.4 million apps to choose from. We’re not going to even begin to skim those numbers, but here are eight of the best free iPhone apps for 2015, that you may want to consider adding to your favorites.
- Adobe Photoshop Express
If you thought Instagram filters could make your photos look good, Photoshop Express will blow your mind. While serious photo editors often need the big screen of a desktop, Adobe’s new app has proven that you can get great quality even on a mobile device. The app allows you to add filters, fix red eye, reduce noise, and more. In addition, you can easily share directly to social media and WhatsApp.
If you still haven’t quite nailed down that household budget you set as a New Year’s resolution, you may want to consider downloading Wally. Voted a Top 10 start-up by Forbes Magazine, Wally keeps track of all income and expenses and organizes each transaction so you can understand exactly where your money is going. Actually seeing how much money you spend on lunch each day may put you into shell shock, so Wally also has the tools to help you hit your savings goals and spend wisely.
Whether you’re headphones are strapped in all day long, or you just need some tunes for the morning commute, SoundCloud has you covered. With SoundCloud you can explore trending songs, podcasts, comedy and more. You can also follow friends to see what they’re listening to, and share your own favorite beats. That’s only if you want to, of course – SoundCloud offers anonymous listening, without the need to create an account. Just download!
Squeezing in everything that you want to do and need to do each day can seem like an impossible task most of the time. But really, it comes down to organizing your day in the most efficient way. That’s where Timeful comes in. Simply tell Timeful what you need to get done, and what you would like to do and it will organize the tasks into a streamlined calendar. Now you don’t have to worry about how you’ll do it all – Timeful is there to help.
- Full Contact Reader
Gone are the days of a traditional Rolodex, but simply entering someone’s name into your phone doesn’t help either. I mean, how many “Brian’s” can one sort through in their contacts before they finally give up? Well, if you’re in the networking phase, Full Contact Reader will be your new best friend. The app allows you to scan business cards so they can be digitally stored on your phone. In addition, it syncs with dozens of mail clients, including SalesForce, MailChimp and more.
Humin helps you get more out of your real-world connections by grouping your contacts by how they relate to you, rather than alphabetically. Using Humin, you can search using unique terms such as “met last week” or “works at the coffee shop.” In addition, Humin quickly finds mutual friends once you enter a contact’s information. The “small world” just got a whole lot smaller.
Whether you’re documenting your cross-country trip or simply taking a selfie, SnapSeed is a powerful image editor that you’ll want to have at your disposal. While the app offers standard photo editing tools for adjusting brightness and contrast, it also allows “selective editing” so you can hone in on specific parts of an image to make it all come together.
With all these new apps you’ll be downloading, that means more logins and passwords to remember. But fortunately, Dashlane does the remembering for you. And, with the introduction of the iPhone 6, you can now easily log in to all your accounts with your fingerprint. The data is secured with the industry’s leading standard, so you can feel confident that your information is safe.
