Top 20 Free iPhone and iPad Apps for Next Year

Handy Apps for Everybody

Time for some iOS apps again. This is a collection of apps which are helpful for everybody in their daily life. I think you’d wanna keep them installed all year long (and even after that).

Sorry, I didn’t include any games, I might create another post comprising just games but today wasn’t the day. I made an iPhone related post after quite a while and I’m amazed to see the amount of stupid and rubbish kind of apps being developed, I actually saw an app to guess your fortune by your taking your picture!! I have only selected the best ones. Hope you like it, and wish you a Happy New Year 🙂 !!
