It’s not hard to find great lists of the best apps to load into your iPhone and iPad, filled with crowd favorites such as Facebook, Instagram or Spotify, but the App Store conceals a wealth of apps that might not have the same popular limelight. I sifted through the Apps on my iPhone to bring you these hidden gems, apps that don’t always make the “Best Of” lists, but I find them super fun & useful.
I was talking about this app in some of my articles already, however not so long ago they absolutely redesigned the whole app and updated their exercises catalog, which is filled with new challenging programmes. The custom-made programme is now more personalised as well, the app tracks your levels of tiredness after each workout to pick the most suitable ones for you for the next week. I can’t love this app more than I currently do, as it really motivates me and keeps my active at all times.
Karhoo is a fairly new app for getting a taxi (or a cab). It’s been live for a couple of weeks now and I’ve been using it since day one. I like that it compares the taxis around the world and gives you the best quotes and let you book a car via the app without any hassle.
If you are planning to test the app, you can use my code: LOLIT522 to get £10 off your first ride.
Planoly is a perfect app for the bloggers or someone who takes their Instagram feed seriously. Basically, it lets you ‘try on’ the photos you are planning to post, to see if they will fit your current theme. After I started using it, my Instagram feed got much more ‘theme-oriented’. Moreover, it’s really easy to schedule your Instagram posts right from the app. Their desktop-app is an advanced analytical tool for your Instagram account, so you can see how well your posts have done and all of the information about your subscribers and their activity.
Velocity has been featured by Wired, GQ and many others credible sources. This app gives you an opportunity to get a table at the most exclusive places in London. You can browse their catalog and choose the place that is perfect for your occassion and book a table right via the app with no additional cost. Booking tables has never been that easy.
London is huge, this is a fact, and because it’s so huge you cannot know all of the best places here, and this is when Dojo app steps up. This app is a great catalog to discover some amazing places around you to eat, to drink and to explore. It has all of the information you need about the restaurants, museums, pubs, etc. It’s updated every day and is very similar to Spotify, but you don’t discover music – you discover places. There are some lists, like ‘Outdoor Cinemas’ or ‘Girls Night Out’ where you can see the places that will be perfect for that. You can also save places to your own lists and create your edits.
Ok, this is a bit childish, but I love this game. I spend at least 20 minutes in this game every day and I’ve been playing it for almost a year now. Covet Fashion features real brands with their real collections and you should participate in daily styling challanges to win more clothes for your virtual ‘wardrobe’. I did buy all of the items by Zimmerman this season, now I wish my virtual ‘wardrobe’ one day will appear in real life – that would be the best day of my life.
Another game, that absolutely stole my heart and a couple of hours from my life as well. The main point of the game is to stack the objects without letting any of them drop. ‘Stack’ has an amazing, minimalistic design and is truly addictive, but I definitely recommend to try it!
