The iOS 11 update to the Apple Podcasts app hasn’t been well received. In an effort to simplify the app, Apple has ended up with an app where everything is now one tap further than it used to be. The new Podcasts app brings Apple Music style UI to Podcasts app. The Now Playing controls, queue management and option menus are lifted directly from the Music app.
Best iPhone Apps
The mainstream new iPhones are here. And once you’ve done setting up your new iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus, your first order of business should be installing apps. And we’ve got the list of the best iPhone apps for your brand new iPhone. Everything for the essential social media apps to utilities and productivity apps that are unique to iOS.
The iPhone is a great music player. Or at least, with the right combination of apps and services, it can be. You’ll find the spiritual successor to the iPod as an icon on the Home screen but that’s just the tip of the iceberg. If you’re a fan of music, there’s an entire world hiding behind the search field on the App Store and it goes way beyond Spotify and Pandora.
No matter if you think they’re a toy, a fad or something that actually helps you deal with anxiety, there’s no denying that fidget spinners are all the rage right now. And it’s natural for the real world to bleed into our screens. Thanks to a plethora of new apps, you can now spin the fidget spinner on your iPhone’s screen. Here are the best fidget spinner apps and games.
Google Assistant is now available on the iPhone (well, at least in the US). Assistant is the manifestation of the future of Google, AI, and voice assistants. As we already know, Google is better at voice assistants and online services than Apple. But Google Assistant can’t really be compared to Siri as ultimately it’s an app and it can’t perform system functions that Siri can.
Apple has a new video making app out. It’s not a social network. It’s not a Snapchat clone. Apple’s Clips app is iMovie for the mobile generation. As long as you’re running iOS 10.3, you’ll be able to record, edit, and share square clips all from your iPhone. It can be something simple like you talking to the screen for 5 seconds. Or it can be a mishmash of your voice with some pre-recorded video, with a cool filter, animated title cards, cool stickers, and annotated text of what you’re speaking, embedded in the video. And all of that can be done on an iPhone.
Christmas is right around the corner. That means family time. That means wonder, and joy but also a lot of work and confusion. If you want to make your life a little bit better around Christmas time – to be more organized, and entertained, check out the following apps.

In fact, we saw multiple organically viral apps this year. So here’s the countdown to the best iPhone apps of 2016.
After entertaining us for decades on consoles and hand held devices, Mario, everyone’s favorite plumber is coming to the iPhone. Super Mario Run is Nintendo’s first officially entry to the smartphones via Apple’s App Store. And let me tell you, it’s is not all hype. It’s also not a simple clone of Subway Surfers with Mario as the title character. As you’d expect from Nintendo, they’ve done is properly.
Sometime last winter, I was at my college workspace, trying really hard to work on a project that was going nowhere. So I did the most obvious thing I could think of at the moment – brought out my iPhone, opened the Twitter app and mindlessly started scrolling through. Zoned out that I was, I found myself skipping the text and stopping where I saw images – videos, GIFs, memes. And that’s when the idea first came to my mind – Instagram for Twitter. I half jokingly instagram’d about it.
