Apple’s App Store offers one of the most comprehensive collections of apps you’ll find, and there truly is something for everyone, no matter what you’re looking for. But when it comes to choosing which apps to install on your own iPhone, you can often be limited by the room you have available on your phone. As well as your essentials; your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Skype, WhatsApp and YouTube – what other apps should you be looking at adding to your iPhone?

Here are some genres to explore when searching for new apps.

Having a bet: Have you ever been watching a sporting event and wanted to place a bet without being able to get to a bookies? Well, with betting apps, you can now ensure you don’t miss any of the action, as well as play some of your favourite casino games. For those fans of slots from 32Red or any of the other online casinos, having the 32Red or Betway app on your phone means you can enjoy all the thrill of the roulette wheels or poker tables from wherever you are.

Gaming: While many stick to playing the basic games that come with their iPhone, exploring the App Store opens up a whole new world of gaming. From FIFA 16 to Assassin’s Creed Identity, you can play some of the most popular games on the market while you’re on your way to work or just killing time on a Friday afternoon rather than work. With game developers seeing the growth in the app market, more and more are seeing the benefits of taking their product to iOS and Android.

To do lists: The built-in iPhone Notes app is a decent way of maintaining an organised life, but if you’re looking for something a little more heavy-duty, there are some very impressive options out there. One of those is or Wunderlust, both of which allow you to easily categorise and organise your lists and calendar. Todolist is another brilliant app, giving the user a clear view of tasks that need completing, offering a way of keeping track of things that need doing over the next seven days.


Saving money: From apps that let your price compare to ones that offer vouchers for restaurants, there are a number of apps that can help you save money. Red Laser is an app that tells you how much a certain product costs elsewhere, ensuring you know where to shop for what, the same with Mysupermarket. If you’re looking at eating out, it’s well worth your time having a look on the Vouchercloud app. Covering a range of the most popular restaurants in your area, this app helps you save money and find discounts at some of your favourites.

Sound effects: Hey, some apps are more fun than function. Ensure your next joke goes down a storm with your own laughter track at the press of a button, make up for the lack of a whoopie cushion with a swipe, the likes of Sound Effects and other apps offer a huge selection of sounds that really will leave you giggling in the corner of the room for hours.
