Apps are a great way to supercharge your iPhone experience and Apple's App Store is full of outstanding options. Some stand-out apps are even better than Apple's very own apps.
If you're looking to get more out of your phone, check out this list we put together of Apps that replace Apple's and make your phone more useful and fun.
1. Instead of Apple's Mail App, use Mailbox to quickly get your inbox to zero.
Mailbox is one of the most anticipated apps of 2013. The email client uses gestures to quickly get your inbox to zero.
One of our favorite features is the "Later" option, which pushes an email away and re-circulates it to the top of your inbox at a time you choose.
Mailbox isn't available yet, but you can sign up for the reservation list here.
Price: It will be free
2. Use Google Maps instead of Apple Maps.
Everyone knows Google Maps is superior to Apple Maps. Google Maps for iPhone is fast, functional, beautifully designed, and most importantly, won't get you lost.
3. Use Fetchnotes instead of Notes.
Apple's stock notes app isn't that great. Fetchnotes improves on note taking and productivity in general. The app makes taking notes as simple as writing a tweet and has an excellent system of tagging using hashtags.
4. Use Check the Weather instead of the regular weather app.
Check the Weather supercharges your mobile weather experience. We love the app because it integrates Dark Sky, an app that tells you down to the minute when it will rain.
Besides a precipitation checker, users also have access to an extended 10-day forecast as well as an hour-by-hour forecast.
5. Spotify gives you access to a massive library of streaming tunes while freeing up space.
Spotify is a streaming music service that lets you stream millions of songs from all the major record labels for $9.99 per month.
Songs aren't stored directly on your device, which frees up a ton of space that you can use for other things like photos and apps. (Although you can store songs for offline listening if you want).
6. Use Clear or Checkmark instead of Reminders.
Clear is a simple to do list list that makes keeping track of lists and tasks very simple. The app is beautifully designed and it feels satisfying to remove completed tasks with a swipe.
Checkmark is a location-based reminders app that is much more polished than Apple's stock Reminders and gives added functionality like a timer feature, a distance list, and location-based reminders.
7. Use Brewster instead of Contacts.
Brewster is a personalized address book that understands your social networking relationships and merges everything into a beautifully-designed app.
Brewster recently updated it's iPhone app, making it possible to sync your entire Brewster address book with the built-in iPhone address book making the app that much more useful.
