Undoubtedly, everyday life becomes less rough with the rescue of modern tools and technologies. They helped us carry out daily tasks with so much ease. Speaking of which, mobile phones are the most undisputed widely used gadget of today’s generation. People from all walks of life, young and adults, men and women see the need of a mobile phone as necessity. Imagine life without communication? It’s like traveling back time where people rely on couriers to bridge communication. It will take forever for replies and not to mention the distress of waiting.

iOS (previously iPhone OS) is a mobile operating system developed and distributed by Apple Inc. Originally released in 2007 for the iPhone and iPod Touch platforms, it has been extended to support other Apple devices such as the iPad and Apple TV. Unlike Microsoft’s Windows Phone and Google’s Android, Apple does not license iOS for installation on non-Apple hardware.

Here are my ten fave iOS mobile apps at the moment:

1. Viber

Since I am working far from home, communication helps me ease homesickness that has been always a constant companion of OFW (Overseas Filipino Workers). It is a free app and supports call and text features. You can also send MMS. There are also art stickers that comes with the app which you can use to send to your loved-ones.

8. Sketchbook Pro

This is a paid app. Since I do love drawing, this app is so right for me. You can sketch, edit pictures and save it. You can add layers and pick existing colors to meet your taste. There are many brushes and pencils to choose from. You can also customize your artwork by adding texts with your desired fonts.

9. Camera 360

This is a photo editor where you can enhance images with different magic skins. One thing I would advice though don’t over enhance your picture and made it look like someone else. You are supposed to enhance your picture not to change it to someone else. I don’t like the glossy effect coz it would make you so flawless and too-good to be true. I liked the new feature where you can cartoonize yourself. It’s really fun.

10. Visualize Free

I use this app to create collage for my blog. You can insert images from your iPhone or iPad and edit it. You crop or cut the images according to your use and enhance with effects for a more professional look. You can also customize by adding text of different texts, fonts, and colors.
