Apps are indubitably the lifeblood of smartphones. Without them, our mobile devices won’t be as useful and valuable as they are today. This is the very reason why app stores are a thing; they make sure that they always bring something new to mobile consumers so as to make each and every smartphone experience worth it. However, with the iOS 7 already in most iDevices in the open, some apps have proven to be useless and obsolete. See what those apps are by reading the list below.
- Pandora. With the iTunes Radio, you no longer need apps such as Pandora and the like. The iOS app lets you stream to your favorite music like the other players. Additionally, it lets you purchase the music of your liking and import it directly into your library.
- iHandy Level. The iOS 7’s Compass app has a hidden feature that you can access easily by swiping to the right while on the app. The hidden feature that I’m talking about is a level that is helpful for making sure that your pictures, as well as any other things that need levelling, are flat. The app has a black and white interface for an outright minimalistic approach. Too bad for iHandy Level because you won’t be needing it anymore now that you already have the Compass app.
- Flashlight Apps. Thanks to the ultra-bright LED beside the back camera of your iPhone, you can use your device as a flashlight. If before, you have to download a flashlight app to make it work without using the camera, now, you just have to go to the control center so that you can light your way with a simple tap on the screen.
- Flayvr. The new Photos app integrated in the iOS 7 is a great sorter tool for your images. You can group your pictures by date, location, event, or whichever you want. Therefore, you will no longer need a photo-organizing app like Flavyr because Photos makes organizing and sharing images a tad easier.
- Lookout Mobile Security. More than the looks of the iOS 7, the added security features in this version are worth some praises. The preinstalled Find My iPhone app is like any other apps out there that you can download for a fee, so why the need to download them still? Find My iPhone lets you track down your missing iDevice. Also, it lets you remotely wipe your phone clean if ever there are any confidential information or accounts tied up with it that you don’t want others to gain access to.
iOS 7 is really something, eh? Well, if it so happened that you still haven’t updated your operating system yet, then what are you waiting for? Do it now!
