  • How To Pick And Choose The Best Free and Paid iPhone Apps

    A Few Basic Guidelines

    iPhones apps can greatly enhance the features and capabilities of your already feature-rich

    mobile device. The fact that most of the best apps for the iPhone are available for free makes it

    even more compelling to download and use them. But before you rush off to download the latest

    available app, you might need to find out how to pick and choose the best free apps for your

    iPhone, so that you can derive maximum benefit from them. You can follow this list of criteria to

    help you pick and choose the best free apps for your iPhone:

    Requirement

    Most people are attracted to iPhone apps

    based on the wow factor. They hear

    about a new app or see a friend using

    one, and they immediately get all excited

    about it, without ever wondering whether

    they really need the app. Just because it

    is free does not mean that you should

    immediately download and use it. In fact,

    most people never use a large

    percentage of the apps that are installed

    on their iPhones. Understand that you

    would only use an app which really meets

    a particular need. So use that as your basic selection criterion to see whether or not you really

    need a particular app, before you download and use it.

    Usability

    Judge a top iPhone app based on its usability. Unlike computer software applications, most

    apps are used on the go while driving, walking or even running. See how well you can use the

    app in those circumstances. Sometimes, you might have to wait for the app to evolve to a higher

    version before it becomes really usable. So unless the app is easy to use on the iPhone, do not

    go for it.

  • Value

    Unless you have countless hours of free time, you can do

    without a large percentage of apps. In fact, most apps for

    entertainment can be very addictive and rob you off your

    precious time, which you can use productively in other

    tasks. So judge an app by the value it provides in your life.

    If it can aid you in productivity and save time, go for it. But

    if it wastes your time and decreases your income or profits,

    keep away from it.

    Safety

    When you have children at home, you should be wary of

    the kind of apps that you install on your smart phone,

    especially when you allow your children to use your

    iPhone. Apps that use geolocation can pinpoint the

    location of the iPhone user. If your children use such apps

    without your assistance, they can expose their location to complete strangers, which could be

    dangerous at times. Therefore, you need to be aware of these aspects when you install certain

    apps on your iPhone.

    Feedback

    It is impossible for you to find all the apps on your own. You might have to go by other people's

    opinions, which is not really a bad thing. People

    are doing you a favor by downloading, installing

    and testing an app, so that you do not have to

    do it yourself. Therefore, check online for

    feedback from iPhone app users through

    forums and social media sites. There are

    thousands of sites online where iPhone app

    users share their experience and provide

    feedback on various different apps. Use this

    collective knowledge to help you pick and

    choose the best free apps for your iPhone.
