Apple’s iPhone 5 might be new, but there are already a host of really great new apps for the smartphone.
Apple’s iPhone 5 has already proven successful. The device comes with a 4-inch screen, an outstandingly thin design and 4G LTE service, making it one of the leaders in the smartphone marketplace. Without the iPhone 5, it’s hard to consider what the mobile space might look like at the moment.
The iPhone 5, however, wouldn’t be as popular without all of the applications available in Apple’s App Store. With over 800,000 apps available in the marketplace, there’s something for everyone.
That said, there are precious few apps that currently support the iPhone 5. The issue is that developers must modify their apps if they want to take advantage of the iPhone 5’s larger screen. Some have already modified their apps for the iPhone 5, and some have not. And for many iPhone 5 owners, trying to search through the App Store to find programs that actually work with the screen isn’t so easy.
Luckily for those folks, we have them covered. In the following pages, we’re going to outline 50 applications that work with the larger display of the iPhone 5. Although many are wellsuited for businesses, the following apps would be ideal for anyone looking to be more productive and get some work done.
