Apps for your New iPhone 6

5 Apps worth getting for your iPhone 6

Here are 5 apps that come highly rated for use with the iPhone 6. They’re not new apps, but they’ve all been updated to take advantage of the IOS8 operating system as well as OS X for Yosemite. I’ve installed most of them, on my iPhone. I’ll have the others installed very soon.

DayOne

DayOne

DayOne has been an app that I began using daily about 6 months ago. I love this app and the way it syncs across my iPhone, iPad, and Macbook Pro. Several apps such as DayOne that I formerly used daily on my iPad, I didn’t even bother opening on the small screen on my old iPhone 4S. Now, with the much bigger screen and improved keyboard, I often prefer the iPhone 6 over my iPad for quick daily activities.

1Password

1-Password

Not happy with the complexities of my present password system, I thought this would be a great time to find a new solution. Everywhere I research, I’m getting recommendations for 1Password. Seems to be the perfect solution for my specific situation, and I’m ready to download.

Pixelmator

Pixelmator

Here’s a Photo editing app that was used by Apple at their October 15th launch to demonstrate how amazingly great apps can optimize the capabilities of the new Apple products and operating systems. I went through some Pixelmator reviews and even a full tutorial. I’m excited about having this on my iPhone, iPad, and Macbook Pro. It’s $4.99 for the IOS version (iPhone AND iPad), and $29.99 for the IOS X Yosemite version. I know that sounds a little pricey, but this app is seriously being compared to PhotoShop at many times the price.

Evernote

Evernote may be my favorite app…Ever! I was troubled with this app for a long time, because I just didn’t “get” it. But after a couple of false starts, I now use EvernoteEveryday. I also have Evernote shortcuts on my notification screen so that I don’t even have to open the application to access its key features. That makes Evernote perfect for for capturing and recording thoughts, ideas, photos, lists, and more on the spur of the moment.

Pocket

Another hugely popular app, Pocket is a holding place to temporarily save text, articles, etc. that you want to read but don’t have time for right now. It seemed like a waste to me considering my reliance on Evernote to handle well, Everything. However, I was wrong again. Pocket makes my life easier in many ways. I’m always saving research, news articles, and other materials to read later. Pocket is perfect to quickly save, read later, and then delete or save elsewhere, eg. Evernote, when you’re finished. I see why it gets so many rave reviews.

Well, there you have it. Five must have apps above that take advantage of the capabilities of the iPhone 6 and the new IOS 8 operating system as well as OS X Yosemite for Macbooks, Mac Minis, and iMacs. Don’t just use your new iPhone 6 for phone calls and text messages. Take advantage of all of it’s built-in wonderfulness.
