We just loved the re-designed iOS 7 which was released earlier this week and we are sure it will attract many people to buy the Apple iPhone running on the amazing iOS 7. Check out the the new features and design here – iOS 7 Features
If you are one of the new iPhone users, then this post is just for you. Check out these must have applications on your new iPhone for 2013:
Google Search for iPhone is not only a simple app to explore the world’s biggest search engine, but it a package containing various extremely useful apps and features.
The Voice feature allows you to search by speaking your query, and believe us that it works perfectly, leaving Apple’s voice assistant Siri far behind. Google Goggles allow you to search about something by simply clicking a picture of that thing. So in case you have no idea about a product or anything, just click a picture and Google it. Another new feature is the Google Now, which gives you updates and information when you want it and get answers before you ask.
The Google Search app comes with many useful applications like Gmail, Google Calender, Google Drive, Google+, News, Readed, Picasa, YouTube, Google Translate etc.
Yes, we know that it’s a paid application but occasionally it is available for free on the AppStore and this is an application which we cannot miss. WhatsApp Messenger is the most popular cross-platform instant messaging application for smartphones. It allows you to send texts, voice messages, images, videos and locations to your friends and family who have WhatsApp Messenger installed on their smartphones. It is the biggest competitor to the Blackberry Messenger (BBM).
It is the number one app on the AppStore and is available for various mobile platforms including iOS, Android, Blackberry, Windows Phone, Nokia Symbian, Nokia S40.

What’s the most annoying thing about Apple’s Safari browser? Yes, it’s the inability to run flash-based websites, videos and animations.
Adobe flash player for iPhone is not available on the AppStore, but you can still run these flash-based websites using the Puffin Web Browser. Apple may not release the flash player for iOS in the coming future because the flash-based applications pose a great threat to the AppStore.
Zomato is very popular website among the foodies which provides information, menu, photographs and rating of a large number of restaurants, pubs, bars and lounges in India, United Kingdom, U.A.E., Philippines, Qatar etc. They are expanding their base in different countries and provide you with all information about any food joint directly on your phone.
