The Most Practical Apps for iPhone

Whenitcomes to applications, the iPhone features a reallyimpressiverange of availabletitles. Butsome of them turn out to be actuallymoreuseful than therest. Therefore, we decided to present a selection of those which seem to us most useful.

Buzz Player

The biggest disappointment related to the iPhone and iPad after Apple was the company’s stubbornness to allow them to run only few multimedia formats. Buzz Player comes to solve precisely this problem. With a very large database of codecs, any file copied on the device, wired – through iTunes, or wirelessly – via a web browser, can be played smoothly. Among theadvantages of thisplayer over other alternatives includetheability to accessfiles from thelocalnetwork, FTP server, Samba and UPnP. Notruled out supportfor subtitles (SUB, SRT, SMI) andifyouhave a little tormented likelyto not missany diacritics from subtitles. In terms of high-res content played on an iPhone 4, Buzz Player manages to play 720p MKV files without problems.


Even if AppStore is full of social applications, video chat or instant messaging VIBER manages to stay on the top thanks to few interesting elements. Going on thepremisethatyoudo not have to make a uniqueaccount, your IDbeingactuallythephonenumber, youdo not need to define a passwordandgive your email addressorotherinformationthatwe are increasinglyreluctant to provide. The fact that the telephone number stored in a database means VIBER users do not even have to ask friends if they use this service, only fill in the application and see which of your contacts have the application installed.

Dragon Dictation

correctmanner than by simpleinput. Dragon Dictation worksonlywhenconnected to the internet (WiFi or 3G) and has a veryefficientconversionratio of voice to text in 8 differentlanguages.

Find My iPhone

With firmware version, 4.2.1 Apple has made Find My iPhone service of Mobile Me in a free component, separate from other functions. Basically, any user of iPhone 4/5, iPad or iPod Touch 4G,justneed to addregisteredmailaccounts on your device, a Mobile Me account, whereyouusethesame username andpassword as the AppStore, then to activate Find My iPhone service. From that point, you have two options, either to usethesamename to checkthelocation of your portable GPS / WiFi or login on their site with the same username and password that you use to access any other Apple service. Besides the tracking function, Find My iPhone allows you to block a particular terminal and delete all of its content remotely. QuickOffice

Even if Apple refused to include a dedicated service for editing Word, Excel, PowerPoint or even TXT, shortly after the launch of AppStore many apps came to solve the problem. QuickOffice is very old on other platforms, beingbestknown for its Symbian version, but on iOS it also manages to a great job in helping your write or edit Excel, Word and TXT documents. To put files on which you see in QuickOffice so you can use file transfer function in iTunes, and access the iPhone’s IP from your favorite browser on port 8080.

Regarding editing functions on a small screen, such as the one of iPhone, you will certainly not have problems after a short period of adaptation.
