Top 5 Iphone Essential Lifestyle Apps

Posted on the 25 October 2013 by Naveedkhan

The Lifestyle category of the iTunes store contains apps covering a diverse range of subjects. You can use them to get creative in and around the home using step-by-step guides as well as upload some of your own tips. You can use them when you’re out shopping to scan products and help you find that bargain you’re looking for by comparing prices for you. We have also included a great little app for marking the growth of your child, celebrating them with photos. You’ll also find apps that enable you to personalise your iPhone’s Home Screen, so that you can add creative-looking shelves for your Lifestyle apps to sit on. If you want to conquer your lack of cooking skills then we have a must-have app that will enable you to impress family and friends with newfound cooking skills.

01 Snapguide

Price: Free Developer: Heavy Bits
Snapguide is the place to go if you’re feeling creative, whether it be to cook or make something new, or indeed to share something you’ve already done with others. The app has a huge library of user-created tutorials on everything from the perfect chicken dish to DIY tips and beyond. There’s a smart in-app publisher to help you put together your own guides before you publish them to the rest of the community and even to your social networks.

02 Google Shopper

Price: Free Developer: Google
The biggest strength of Google Shopper is the way it turns your iPhone into an incredibly efficient shopping assistant when you’re out bargain hunting. Not only does the app have support for scanning QR codes, but you can also scan barcodes and even covers of book, CDs and DVDs in order to have them recognised by the application. Google Shopper will then show you a list of price comparisons so you can get the best deal.

03 Fancy

Price: Free Developer: Thing Daemon
The place to go if you want to marvel at high fashion and iconic products alongside like-minded users, Fancy has the feel of a blog and digital magazine in its layout and imagery, and you can use it to show off the things that inspire and appeal to you. You can add things to your own list as well as comment on the posts of others and even link the app with your Facebook and Twitter accounts.

04 Jamie’s 15-Minute Meals

Price: Free Developer: Channel 4
Following on from the theme established in his previous app appearances, this one does rely on in-app purchases. There are some free taster dishes, but for all the video content it is worth parting with some pennies. This, coupled with the imagery and the clever hidden extras, give you plenty to work with.

05 23snaps

Price: Free Developer: 23 Snaps
A wonderful app for any new parent, 23snaps is your very own digital journal where you can chronicle your child’s life. You can upload photos, statuses and even videos to mark every precious moment. These can then be shared with loved ones so they never miss a thing. The app is completely secure with approval needed for others to see your uploads.
