Ask DN: As a designer what iOS apps do you use daily?

over 4 years ago from , brand & product stuff

Every few months I look at my home screen on my phone and realize I don't use a few of those apps anymore. Or i find myself continually swiping over to an app that should be on my home page (without realizing it).

What apps do you have on your home screen / use on a daily basis?

    Mailbox - I love how it reminds me of emails Groove - One of the few souls who still has a ton of music on their phone. Groove is a great way to rediscover forgotten tunes. Transportation: Google Maps (for everything). Lyft and Uber X in SF Grooveshark mobile site - to listen to music I dont have on my phone Photowonder - my fav photo editor venmo - Paying With Friends Eventbrite - to see whats going on. I feel like its used more in SF? Airendipity - it's like PostSecret re-imagined with paper planes. Silkscreen- essential if you do iOs design work

    and Appkick, an app I have been working on to share apps with your friends and see what theyve been sharing. Temp site is over at http://appkick.me and the designs have been trickling out over on dribble at: http://dribbble.com/ekimia

    Enjoy!

    Skala View - for looking at my mobile UI designs on a device Rdio - I don't keep any music on my phone to save space (I take alot of photos) Dribbble - This is really a direct link to the website (I used the save to homescreen on iphone safari) Pop app - for quick prototyping using my phone

    Tweetbot - duh Netbot - app.net Mailbox - Looove that it forces you to take action on each email Pulse - The best way to consume news Skala View- For testing iOS Designs Takspaper - The greatest .txt based todo list ever. (The OSX client is better than iOS, but it syncs well)

      Oh, Screenshot Journal is also good, but I don't use it that often.

      Launch Center Pro is also really handy.

    Tentr (http://tentrapp.com), Drafts, Grooveshark (jailbroken; Rdio and Spotify provide much better experiences than GS), YouTube, Chrome, Mango IRC, Gmail, Ecoute (music app; phenomenal), TestFlight, and Readability.
