Essential apps for your iPhone

Your iPhone might be good looking on the outside, but you need to make it equally as good on the inside, too. The way to do that is with some great apps. Check out top picks below.

Ever done a week’s shopping just to find you’ve left your Clubcard at home and won’t be able to cash in on the bonus points? With Mobile-Pocket, you can store all your loyalty cards on your phone so you never leave them behind again.

SwiftKeySwiftKey Keyboard


App Store: Free, offers in-app purchases

Text messages, emails, Google searches… you’ll use the keyboard on your new phone all the time, so upgrade it to SwiftKey for fast and easy typing. SwiftKey learns how you type, so it can predict what you’re going to say and correct spellings. It even learns the emojis you use most.

LookoutLookout


App Store: Free, offers in-app purchases

You’ll store a lot of information on your iPhone – phone numbers, email address, bank details etc. That’s why it’s important to keep it safe and virus free. Lookout scans your apps for malware, lets you find your find if it’s lost or stolen and lets you backup your contacts. And it can do a lot more to protect you if you buy the premium version.

LastPassLastPass
