Best iPhone Apps: 16 of the best apps for iPhone


The iPhone is great, but it would be nothing without terrific apps.

We’ve picked out some of the best iPhone apps for you to try, and we’ll keep adding new ones. Let us know which apps we should try in the comments section below.


What is Trello?

We’re hardly short of organisation apps on the App Store, but Trello manages to stand out for its powerful yet intuitive approach to project planning.

It’s built around the concept of boards. Each board is essentially an array of lists, each of which is populated by cards. Those cards signify tasks, and can be dragged and dropped between lists according to the progress of your projects.

What’s good?

It’s incredibly easy to set up and manage multiple project boards with Trello. We prefer the full desktop browser, but the mobile app is pretty good too – and obviously more useful when out and about. All you need is a Trello account to sync your projects across multiple devices.

Trello’s key strength is its flexibility. You can use it as a simple ‘to do’ list, a project visualisation tool, or an organisational tool for work. It’s a small matter to invite others to your board and collaborate, too.

While the mobile app is a little trickier to use effectively, it’s fully featured. You can do things like add other members to a board, assign them to cards, post comments to cards, or attach files to cards from Google Drive or Dropbox – all from the app.

Like all the best mobile apps, Trello just works.

What’s bad?

We struggle to find fault with Trello. Maybe it would be nice to be have widget support for Notification Centre, so that you could have a widget which shows you the status of a particular card you’ve assigned someone to.

But we’re just nitpicking now. Trello is pretty much top of its particular productivity tree.


Intuitive, flexible, and well presented, Trello is a great way to get organised, no matter the size of your project. It’s scarcely believable that this is a free app.
