widgetBanner

When Apple announced iOS 8 way back in June, one of biggest announced additions to the iPhone software was the ability for apps to add custom widgets to the Notification Center. This enabled developers to extend their apps to be useful outside of the app itself. On September 17th, Apple released iOS 8 —and with it, app widgets— to the world. DailyAppShow has spent some time finding apps that best implements this new feature, and below are what we think to be the best 5 of the bunch.

This enables a wide variety of wide variety of useful actions that are accessible wherever you are in your phone. Custom actions can include texting or calling a contact, asking Maps to direct you home with a single touch, and using the myriad features that other apps enable with URL schemes (such as Drafts to take a note quickly).

Top 5 keyboards for iOS 8

keyboardBanner

Apple announced iOS 8 way back in June, one of biggest announced additions to the iPhone software was the ability to install custom keyboards. This enabled developers to extend the keyboard area of the iPhone to far beyond just letters. On September 17th, Apple released iOS 8 —and custom keyboards— to the world. DailyAppShow has spent some time delving into some of the earliest of these custom keyboards, and below are what we think to be the best 5 of the bunch.

 

SwiftKeySwiftKey

By far the most popular keyboard currently available for both iOS 8 and Android, SwiftKey shot to the top of the charts soon after its release. SwiftKey has three major features: Flow mode, predictive type, and SwiftKey cloud. SwiftKey Flow is the flagship feature where you can simply swipe between keys without lifting your finger. This makes for some very quick one-handed typing after a small learning curve. Predictive type, like the built-int iOS 8 keyboard, offers suggestions for your next word based on what you’re writing. This can be pretty accurate, and will become even more accurate when combined with SwiftKey Cloud. SwiftKeyCloud personalizes your autocorrect and predictive type based on everything you’ve typed with the keyboard. Check it out app store.

 


 

MinuumMinuum

Minuum aims to replace the default keyboard by adding some intriguing features. As the name might imply, this keyboard can be very small, resizable down to half the normal keyboard height while preserving typing accuracy using their highly tuned correction algorithm. Minuum also includes custom key layouts like AZERTY, predictive type learning engine, and gesture-based shortcuts.

 


 

GIF Keyboard by RiffsyRiffsy

On the less serious end of the spectrum, Riffsy is a keyboard comprised purely of animated GIF images and video clips organized into various categories. Clicking any GIF will copy it into your clipboard, then you can paste it almost anywhere you can paste text. In addition to the mood-specific categories, the keyboard also has sections of trending GIFs from various sources like Reddit and Buzzfeed, and keeps your most used images in a dedicated spot in much the same way as the emoji keyboard. Riffsy adds some fun to your iOS device, and if you’re a fan of communicating via animated images (and really, who isn’t?), this keyboard will be a no-brainer.

 


 

TextExpander 3TextExpander

TextExpander adds a new feature to its already impressive ultra-useful productivity tool. TextExpander, originally a mac-only app, is an app that lets you define frequently used text snippets –like your email signature or home address– and assign a keyboard shortcut-like abbreviation to it. On supported apps, typing the abbreviation will expand to the full snippet. Unfortunately, app developers had to enable their apps to use the tool. Now, thanks to the new features of iOS 8, TextExpander can now be used anywhere, using the custom keyboard that is bundled with the latest edition of the app.

 


 

MyScript StackMyScriptStack

MyScript Stack harkens back to the days of Palm Pilots with it’s handwriting recognition keyboard. Stack adds an essentially blank area where the keyboard keys usually sit wherein you simply write letters and gestures and the keyboard accurately guesses what you’re writing. In addition to typing the letters you scribble, adds suggested words at the top that you can touch to quickly add. There are also useful gestures for frequent operations, like adding a period, space, or return. This free app adds another level of usefulness to your iPhone with iOS 8.

Best iPhone Navigation Apps

When searching through the App Store the one thing, other than the price, that people are looking for is the best App for a specific category. Whether it’s a Photo App or Social App or Music App people want the best and the best ones are usually the ones that stay on their device.

It can be the Apps functionality that makes it the best. It can also be the design of the App that makes it the best. And don’t forget it can also be the simplicity that makes an App the best. There are many factors that go into giving an App the title of being the Best App but it is something that everyone does. Sometimes the Best Apps are also our favorite ones.

Below we are going to take a look at what it would mean to be the Best iPhone Navigation App.

This will be an ongoing series as we take you through the iPhone App Categories.

 

Best iPhone Navigation Apps

When it comes to finding your way on the road on the iPhone there are many factors to consider. We are going to tell you what you should look for when looking for the Best iPhone Navigation Apps.

 

Search

Every great Navigation App needs to have a search feature. If you cannot search for places then what is the point of having a navigation app? You want to select an App that has an extensive maps data base that will have the most recent search results that you are looking for. A great example is Google Maps, they have the most extensive maps data around and will more than likely have the most accurate results when searching for places.

 

Directions

Once you’ve found the place that you were looking for, wouldn’t it be nice if you could get directions as well? Directions and Turn-by-Turn Navigation are a must to make any Navigation App the Best iPhone Navigation App. The basic directions function should at the very least give you a map overview that you can follow as well as a list of actions that you’ll need to take in order to get where you’re going. Turn-by-Turn Navigation should have some sort of voice guidance that can be adjusted and be able to give directions even when the iPhone is locked. Most Navigations Apps will charge for Turn-by-Turn Navigation so make sure and check that feature before selecting an App.

 

Imagery

Now that you’ve got search and directions covered it’s time to think about seeing what the buildings actually look like so you don’t miss it when you get there. This is where Map Imagery will come in handy. Map Imagery will allow you to see a picture of the building right from the App so you know what to look for. Some Apps even offer a Street View where you can actually see what it’ll look like right from the street in front of the building. There are even Apps that will offer 3D modeling of cities so you can see the building in its full glory. This will also insure that the mapping service has all of its data up to date.

 

Transit Options

Having different methods of transportation is vital in selecting the Best iPhone Navigation App. Sometimes the building you are going to is just a few blocks away and it would be best to walk, you want to have the option to select that method of transportation from the App. There are even Apps that will look up bus and train schedules so you’ll know when you need to get there if that is your selected mode. There is always more than one way to get where you’re going.

 

Traffic

Having live traffic updates is a great feature to have when looking for the Best iPhone Navigation App. This will allow you to navigate around traffic jams, construction, accidents, etc. Most Apps that feature Directions and Turn-by-Turn Navigation will also have a Traffic feature. If there is Turn-by-Turn enabled inside of the App it will often reroute you around the traffic incident so you can get to your destination on time and as efficiently as possible.

Best iPhone Social Networking Apps

When searching through the App Store the one thing, other than the price, that people are looking for is the best App for a specific category. Whether it’s a Photo App or Social App or Music App people want the best and the best ones are usually the ones that stay on their device.

It can be the Apps functionality that makes it the best. It can also be the design of the App that makes it the best. And don’t forget it can also be the simplicity that makes an App the best. There are many factors that go into giving an App the title of being the Best App but it is something that everyone does. Sometimes the Best Apps are also our favorite ones.

Below we are going to take a look at what it would mean to be the Best iPhone Social Networking App.

This will be an ongoing series as we take you through the iPhone App Categories.

 

Best iPhone Social Networking Apps

When it comes to staying active on social networks on the iPhone there are many factors to consider. We are going to tell you what you should look for when looking for the Best iPhone Social Networking Apps.

 

Social Platform

One of the first things that you have to consider when choosing a Social Networking App is the actual social platform. This is going to be the network where you and all of your friends, family, and colleges connect and you need to make sure that there are going to be people there to interact with. You will have to sign up for a service and you’ll need to make sure that this is a social network that you trust with your information. It’s too easy to sign up for everything and forget that you have an account somewhere and leave all of your information online somewhere you don’t want it. There are plenty of popular platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Foursquare, Tumblr, etc. You can sign up for as many as you like but keep in mind what you share and where you share it at.

 

Interface/Design

The interface and design of an App is going to be a major factor when selecting your best iPhone apps. An App can have a beautiful design but can lack functionality, it needs to be your goal to find the best of both worlds. A great interface will make an App easy to use and navigate through and a great design will make the App look nice. One design standard that has become popular is slide out menus from the left and right hand sides, this makes is nice as the content that you are looking for stays the focus and if you need more you can slide out a menu. Design and interface isn’t everything but if it’s one of the best apps then it’s going to need to look nice.

 

Push Notifications

Push Notifications should be a standard feature when selecting the Best iPhone Social Networking App. Push Notifications all you to have the App close and be notified when someone sends you a response, comment, message, or any activity that happens on your social network. There are some Apps that have amazing designs, features, and options but lack push notifications. If this isn’t something that interests you then there is no need to worry but if you like to keep up on everything this you need to make sure the App has this feature.

 

Editing Options

Being on a Social Network you’ll have some sort of profile that you can edit. Editing this from a web browser is the obvious way to go about this as that is probably where you signed up in the first place. But wouldn’t it be nice if you could edit your profile on the go? You’ll want to find an App that has the ability to edit some features of your profile that way you can keep the most recent information up to date no matter where you are. Some Apps will just let you see your profile but won’t let you edit it, so keep that in mind when looking for the Best iPhone Social Networking App.

Best iPhone Books Apps

When searching through the App Store the one thing, other than the price, that people are looking for is the best App for a specific category. Whether it’s a Photo App or Social App or Music App people want the best and the best ones are usually the ones that stay on their device.

It can be the Apps functionality that makes it the best. It can also be the design of the App that makes it the best. And don’t forget it can also be the simplicity that makes an App the best. There are many factors that go into giving an App the title of being the Best App but it is something that everyone does. Sometimes the Best Apps are also our favorite ones.

Below we are going to take a look at what it would mean to be the Best iPhone Books App.

This will be an ongoing series as we take you through the iPhone App Categories.

 

Best iPhone Books Apps

When it comes to reading books on the iPhone there are many factors to consider. We are going to tell you what you should look for when looking for the Best iPhone Books Apps.

 

Customization

In Books Apps you are going to want to be able to customize the interface a little bit, such as changing the font size or changing a theme. These can come in handy because a different font may make the book easier due to the font being easier for you to understand. A benefit to changing a book theme is that you can have a “light” theme for the day that is easy on the eyes and a “dark” theme for night that is easy on the eyes. Most Book Apps have these options but you want to make sure the one that you use has some form of customization.

 

Ease of Use

Having a Book App that is easy to use is going to be key. Each Book App is going to work differently because of the developer that has made it. Some developers want to push extra content into the App instead of just delivering the content that you want. With an easy to use App you’ll want to be able to get right into your books and begin reading. Read some of the review of the App before you download it and look at the screenshots, it’ll help you decide if the App is going to be easy to use.

 

Book Store

Most of the Book Apps are going to be free but will require you to purchase books through the App. Once you’ve decided on which App you’re going to use you then need to decide on which book ecosystem you are wanting to be a part of. Providers such as iBooks, Amazon Kindle, Nook, and Stanza all have their own bookstore that you are going to purchase books through. Books cannot transfer from App to App so you need to decide which App you like best and buy your books through that one. You make even like more than one and purchase through more than one but they will remain in that App alone.

 

Sync

If you have more than one device that you are wanting to read your books on then you are going to need some sort of Syncing options. With some Books Apps they will sync you positions, bookmarks, highlights, etc. This comes in handy because you can quickly pick up where you left off on another device and it usually does it for you automatically. Syncing is a must have feature for people with multiple devices.
