Samsung Galaxy S6

Simply the best phone in the world this year

TechRadar's favourite and top-ranked phone right now is the Samsung Galaxy S6. It's got all the features you'd want in a brand new market-leading smartphone, as well as fantastic looks, super build quality and a really great camera. This is not a cheap phone but if you take a look below you'll see we've found some surprisingly good deals!

  • The Good: + Great for media | + Amazing camera | + Super sharp screen
  • The Bad: - Battery life isn't good enough | - Very expensive

iPhone 6 deals

mobile phone deals - iphone 6

Apple iPhone 6

Probably the best iPhone ever produced

Our second-favourite phone is the iPhone 6 - certainly the best phone Apple has ever created and definitely worth the extra money over an iPhone 5S. The larger screen, better keyboard and improved battery life make it a much more useable device than ever before.

  • The Good: + Great design | + Improved battery | + Better keyboard
  • The Bad: - Still quite pricey | - Screen is low-res next to the competition

HTC One M9 deals

htc one m9 deals

HTC One M9

Looks fantastic and has all the features to match

The HTC One M8 was our favourite phone for the whole of 2014, but this year's entry the HTC One M9 is down at number 3 - still a highly commendable position given the immense competition. The camera is good, though not as brilliant as the two phone above, and everything else about the M9 is right up there with the very best money can buy.

  • The Good: + Premium design | + Excellent build quality | + Great camera
  • The Bad: - Expensive | - Weak battery performance | - Few improvements

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge deals

s6 edge phone deals

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

Sexy looks that'll make everyone stop and look

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is practically the same as the S6 at the top of this page but with a crucial difference - the screen curves down on both sides. It makes the phone look truly stunning and also enables a few nifty new features that aren't possible on flat-screened phones. Check out the deals we've found...

  • The Good: + Eye-catching design | + Super-sharp screen | + Powerful performance | + Stunning camera
  • The Bad: - VERY expensive | - Disappointing battery | - Edge screen offers little | - No microSD

LG G3 deals

phone deals for the lg g3


LG's flagship phone looks and performs excellently

We reckon the number 5 smartphone in the world right now is the LG G3. Like its predecessor, if you're after power and precision (perhaps over design and form) then this is a winner. The camera and battery combo is superb, and the improved user interface will woo you immediately.

  • The Good: + Great screen | + Decent camera | + Improved interface
  • The Bad: - Lacking in premium design | - Battery life is lower than expected

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact deals

mobile phone deals on the xperia z3 compact

Sony Xperia Z3 Compact

Has all the features of the Z3 but smaller

If you are looking for a feature-packed phone that looks fantastic and performs brilliantly, then you'll be very pleased with the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact. It's actually a smidgen smaller than the iPhone 6, which means it's still packing a good-sized screen but it's more manageable for small hands.

  • The Good: + Great design | + Super screen | + Good battery life
  • The Bad: - Camera isn't the best | - Sony's apps offer little

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 deals

galaxy note 4 phone deals

Samsung Galaxy Note 4

Samsung's latest Note is super-powerful

The Galaxy Note is the phone that made big screens fashionable and it's still the best phablet available today. The Samsung Galaxy Note 4's 5.7-inch screen is simply gorgeous, extending almost to the edge of the handset so you can still hold it on one hand comfortably.

  • The Good: + Fantastic screen | + Powerful performance | + Excellent camera
  • The Bad: - It's expensive

compare and filter all mobile phone deals

iPhone 6 Plus deals

iphone 6 plus deals

iPhone 6 Plus

The biggest iPhone ever is visually stunning

The iPhone 6 Plus is the best looking phablet around. Its specs don't match the Android powerhouses like the HTC One M8 and Samsung Galaxy Note 4, and its sheer size does make it tricky to hold, but there's no denying Apple's beautiful 5.5 incher is a winner.

  • The Good: + Best looking phablet | + Great HD screen | + Strong camera
  • The Bad: - It's very big | - Very expensive

Sony Xperia Z3 deals

phone deals on the z3

Sony Xperia Z3

A great all-rounder that offers great performance

Sony has been releasing new phones thick and fast in the last few years, and the latest in a long line of flagship handsets is the Sony Xperia Z3. It's got all the high-end specs you'd want, and the screen is the brightest of any in our top 10.

  • The Good: + Brilliant battery | + PS4 Remote Play is excellent | + Premium build
  • The Bad: - OS is a big buggy

Google Nexus 6 deals

best deals on the nexus 6

Google Nexus 6

Google's biggest phone ever is excellent

Google chooses a different hardware partner for each yearly refresh of its Nexus flagship smartphone, and the Nexus 6 is built expertly by Motorola. It's certainly not a small phone: its near 6-inch display is about as big as it gets when it comes to smartphones and for that reason it's somewhat of an acquired taste, some will find it far too big, others will be absolutely besotted by it.

  • The Good: + Super-size screen | + Latest versions of Android | + Great camera
  • The Bad: - It's very large | - Expensive compared to Nexus 5

iPhone 5C deals

iphone 5c deals

iPhone 5C

The cheapest iPhone currently available on contract

OS: iOS 8 | Screen size: 4-inch | Resolution: 1136 x 640 | Memory: 1GB | Storage: 8/16/32GB | Battery: 1,510mAh | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 1.2MP

The iPhone 5C is essentially 2012's iPhone 5 repackaged in a new plastic shell and that means the technology inside is three years behind the iPhone 6. However, if you want to spend as little as possible while still getting an iPhone experience from your handset, the iPhone 5C is still a competent device and unlikely to disappoint with deals like this.

iPhone 5S

Last year's iPhone flagship is still a great phone, and now a lot cheaper!

The iPhone 5S used to be really quite expensive but these days you'll find plenty of great deals available with monthly fees under £30 even when you get the handset for free.

10 best cheap mobile phone deals 2015

Don't want one of the expensive smartphones on pages one and two? Want a cheap mobile phone deal and don't mind which handset you go for?

There are loads of awesome phones and contract deals to choose from! Allow us to recommend the best mobile phone deals for cheap-and-cheerful smartphones:

Best cheap phone deals April 2015:

moto g deals

1. Motorola Moto G (2014)

The best cheap contract phone and there's some amazing deals too

OS: Android 4.4.4 | Screen size: 5-inch | Resolution: 720 x 1280 | Memory: 1GB | Storage: 8GB | Battery: 2,070mAh | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 2MP

The Moto G (2014) and its predecessors have been some of the best (if not THE best) cheap phones on the market for a few years now, and if you're looking for maximum bang for your buck look no further. The camera is surprisingly good for such a cheap phone, and the screen is also bigger and better than you'd expect.


cheap phone contract deals

Sony Xperia M2 Aqua

2. Sony Xperia M2 Aqua

A waterproof contract phone available for watertight deals

OS: Android | Screen size: 4.8-inch | Resolution: 960 x 540 | Memory: 1GB | Storage: 8GB | Battery: non-removable 2,300mAh | Rear camera: 8MP | Front camera: 0.5MP | Waterproof: Yes

The Sony Xperia M2 Aqua is a cheap and cheerful smartphone with a killer feature - it's waterproof. So you can take it in the shower or accidentally drop it in the toilet and it'll be fine. And with a design not all that far removed from the more expensive Sony Xperia handsets, the M2 Aqua makes a good first impression, sure to raise a few eyebrows among your friends.


cheap phone contract deals

Nokia Lumia 635

3. Nokia Lumia 635

A truly cheap contract phone that punches above its weight

OS: Windows Phone 8.1 | Screen size: 4.5-inch | Resolution: 480 x 854 | Memory: 512MB | Storage: 8GB | Battery: 1,830mAh | Rear camera: 5MP | Front camera: N/A

The Nokia Lumia 635 is an excellent-value budget Windows Phone, offering build quality that you'd normally find in more expensive phones and adding 4G functionality on top of the original Lumia 630 package. It comes with the latest version of Windows and it's tough as old boots.


cheap phone contract deals

Nokia Lumia 735

4. Nokia Lumia 735

A super cheap selfie phone available on contract with great deals!

OS: Windows Phone 8.1 | Screen size: 4.7-inch | Resolution: 720 x 1280 | Memory: 1GB | Storage: 8GB | Battery: 2,200mAh | Rear camera: 6.7MP | Front camera: 5MP

Another Windows Phone here and a step up from the Lumia 635 above, the Nokia Lumia 735's 5MP front-facing camera makes it the perfect cheap selfie phone... if that's your sort of thing! Honestly it's not the greatest phone in other areas but then... look at that price.


cheap phone contract deals

HTC Desire 510

5. HTC Desire 510

A good looking contract phone available at a cheap price

OS: Android | Screen size: 5.2-inch | Resolution: 1920 x 1080 | RAM: 2GB | Storage: 16GB |Battery: non-removable 2,400mAh | Rear camera: 13MP dual | Front camera: 13MP

If you just want a cheap phone on contract for taking advantage of the new, super fast 4G network at a low price, then you'll be quite happy with the HTC Desire 510! The battery life on this one is also very good, coping with heavy use pretty well, and with some power saving features onboard it's unlikely to let you down.


cheap phone contract deals

nokia lumia 530 deals

6. Nokia Lumia 530

A cool little phone available on contract with some really great deals

OS: Windows Phone 8.1 | Screen size: 4.0-inch | Resolution: 480 x 854 | Memory: 512MB |Storage: 4GB | Battery: 1,430mAh | Rear camera: 5MP | Front camera: N/A

If you're after a cheap and cheerful smartphone that packs a number of features for a rock-bottom price, then you won't go too far wrong with the Nokia Lumia 530. Microsoft and Nokia really add value with a light smattering of pre-installed apps - MixRadio is the pick of the bunch, but Microsoft's OneDrive and Office are very handy too. There's enough here out of the box to cater for most basic needs.


oneplus one

7. OnePlus One

A bigscreen phone at a smallscreen price

The OnePlus One offers Samsung Galaxy S5 performance for less than half the price. If that doesn't make it attractive it also has a customisable OS and a 1080p display. There are a few downsides, but overall the OnePlus One is amazing value for money.


the best mobile phone deals

nokia lumia 930

8. Nokia Lumia 930

This phone has a fantastic camera - worth buying just for that!

The Lumia 930 is the most complete Windows Phone to date. It's the first to properly challenge the flagship might of Android and iOS with its impressive design, new Windows Phone 8.1 software and all round decent specs.


the best mobile phone deals

galaxy alhpa

9. Samsung Galaxy Alpha

One of Samsung's best looking phones ever

The Galaxy Alpha is a phone that's pleasant to use in a variety of situations, thanks to its lightweight design, just-right size, and impressively swift performance.


the best mobile phone deals

galaxy a3

10. Samsung Galaxy A3

A gorgeous metal unibody makes this budget handset one to watch!

The all metal design on the Galaxy A3 is a step in the right direction for Samsung, and the speed and precision with which this phone performed was impressive, given the amount of grunt under the hood.


7 days in smartphones: Dear Microsoft, please don't eat my Android phone

Your princess isn't in another smartphone

It's Friday. You're giddy with excitement. It can only mean one thing…7 days in smartphones is back again!

Forget being "social" with your so-called "friends", stay here in the dark with as we try to make you laugh. Once. It's the best we can hope for.

It's-A-Not-Me, Mario!

Nintendo is finally entering the smartphone market. We've waited years to say it and – phwoar– that felt seriously good.

The bad news is it isn't exactly as we'd anticipated, it looks like Mario and co will be taking a back seat to make way for new mobile franchises.

Link on a horse

The move comes after a partnership with developer DeNA who will have free reign over the Nintendo IPs but won't be aiming to create ports of Wii U or 3DS games.

Instead it'll be focusing on new titles – is that really such a bad thing? Well, probably - these things rarely go well.

Even though the Mario, Zelda, Pokémon, rinse and repeat formula can sometimes feel a little tiresome, Nintendo wanting to enter the world of Candy Crush doesn't necessarily fill me with glee.

That said, if anyone can do it with style and create some new engaging characters to go on the journey with, surely it's Nintendo. You hear that Iwata? My credit card is waiting and I'm ready and waiting to make micro payments now.

Microsoft wants your Android!

Windows 10 news now smartphans: Microsoft wants to bring its new operating system to your Android smartphone.

Wait, WHAT?!

Yeah, that's right, Microsoft wants to wrangle your unrestricted OS, throw up a bunch of electric fences and restrict the amount of apps you'll be able to download.

Microsoft Windows 10

OK, maybe not quite like that, but the Softies have announced plans to allow users to trial a custom ROM on the Xiamoi Mi 4 that removes all trace of the Android OS for an almost complete version of Windows 10.

It's Microsoft's attempt to steal users from the Android ecosystem and switch them over to Windows Phone, but it'll be some seriously hard work considering the reduced number of apps available on the platform.

Will anyone actually choose to make their Android run Windows Phone? Only time will tell.

Or, well, no.

One hoof forward

One hoof, two hoof, three hoof, four, repeat. Walking was becoming easier by the day as Winston's long recovery continued to drag.

"You're doing great, just a few more steps" reassured the nurse ready to catch him at the slightest sign of a stumble.

One hoof, two hoof, three hoof, four, done. Winston collapsed into the really rather long wheelchair, sweat dripping from his mane. The nurse looked at him sympathetically, stroking his fetlock, and said tenderly: "That's enough for one day... let's get you back to your bed."

Wheeled back to the side of his bed, he clambered onto the sheets and forced himself to look at the odd, faceless black brick that seemed to be staring him from the bedside table.

Over the preceding days and weeks he'd gradually been building the confidence to explore the Apple iPhone and take control of his first ever keyless smartphone. OK, the Storm didn't have any keys... except it did. The whole display was a key. It was glorious, but now it was gone.

In that time he'd learnt how to turn on the display, unlock it, take a few snaps around his hospital room and even get used to the onscreen keyboard. Apps were still a weird experience: he'd finally realised how to download them, but was bewildered by how many there were. Inside, he still missed the choice of just 11 that used to populate BlackBerry App World.

Then the day came: it was time to go home. His rehab was over. It was time to venture back out into the world, a robotic unicorn sent out to live once again.

With an NHS prescribed iPhone 6 Plus in his left hoof, a small bag of belongings in his right, it was time to flip open Apple Maps, type in Mobonia, get confused as to why it wasn't there (before finding it simply on Google Maps) and continue on his journey, but where next?

A flagship for the Shin!

Although likely not the best smartphone you've ever owned, the Samsung Galaxy S ended up being one of the major competitors to the iPhone 4.

Here are some of the highlights from the one and only JK Shin announcing it way back in March 2010. Kevin from Twitter is definitely NOT reading from an auto-cue.

Strange press shot of the week

Sony Camera Lens

*Read in your best David Attenborough voice*

Here we see a young stubble-styled hipster out of his normal Shoreditch habitat, discovering the phenomenon of fresh berries.

This specimen, likely known as Atticus to his friends, has lost his Polaroid camera and decides to join the modern world with the Sony QX100 Lens Style Camera for smartphones and tablets.

He attaches it to a Sony Xperia Z2 to snap some blackberries and then ask all his Instagram friends what they are.

Sadly he has yet to receive a response as none of his followers could identify them through the Nashville filter.

Retro video of the week

YouTube : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1YBrVevn4w

"You know there's a sexier way to connect to the web." That was the slogan of the Siemens C35i.

It seems the company wanted to sex up its image – if that's even possible with a NSFW name like Siemens – so it employed some proper hot bods to strut around the emptiest, weirdest lit nightclub in all of Germany.

If you can discern what actually happens at the end of the video please let us know in the comments as our tiny little tech focused minds can't work it out.

Proper bits from the site

Remember the best phone you ever had? It was likely the Nokia 3310 and we went on a journey through time to bring you back the best details we could find on it – just look how pretty it is!

EE has replaced its Orange Wednesday's deal with a significantly less exciting streaming proposition. We don't know exactly what kind of films it'll include just yet but we can speculate 70% of them will include Steven Seagal.

Dyson has invested in some new technology to make your smartphone's, and your vacuum cleaner's, battery last even longer.

And finally the auto-tuned Robocop look-a-like that is Will.i.am has teamed up with the fashion brand Gucci to bring you yet another horrible "smartband".

Updated: 50 best iPhone apps 2015: the greatest paid and free apps around

50 best iPhone apps 2015

50 best iPhone apps 2015

Apps are the cornerstone of iOS. The ecosystem is what sets Apple's mobile platform apart from its rivals, and the highest-quality iPhone apps are typically best in class.

But, like any app store, it is sometimes difficult to find out what are truly the best apps, the ones that stand out from the rest - because they offer a tool or service that is far beyond anything else available.

Sometimes the best apps are free, other times you will have to pay a little bit for them. Here we showcase the best available and offer up everything you need to know about the app and how much it will cost.

This round-up compiles our favourites, from top-quality creative tools and video editors to the finest productivity kit and social networking clients and even if you don't have an iPhone right now it's worth reading up on what's available if you're considering investing in the iPhone 6S / iPhone 7 when it's out.

As always, if your essential app isn't on the list - let us know in the comments...

Air Video HD

Air Video HD

  • $2.99/£1.99

Even the most expensive iPhone has a fairly limited amount of on-board storage and that's not even likely to change with the iPhone 7. This is a problem if you have a large video collection you'd like to access. Air Video HD server streams (and if necessary, re-encodes) files from a PC or Mac that can then be played on your iPhone; there's AirPlay support, and also the means to access your Air Video server over the web.



  • $4.99/£2.99

Byword is a text editor that hits the sweet spot of being both usable and simple. Its font is clear, and a toolbar adds live word count or Markdown buttons. Your documents can be saved locally, to iCloud, or to a linked Dropbox account. Output can also be exported to various formats (PDF; HTML; email) or to a blog if you buy the $4.99/£2.99 'Publishing' IAP.

Sky Guide

Sky Guide

  • $1.99/£1.49

Easily the most beautiful of the iOS stargazing apps, Sky Guide also happens to be the most usable. You can quickly and easily scan the heavens by dragging your finger around, optionally orienting the screen to wherever you happen to be looking. A Today view widget adds information about rise and set times for nearby planets, the sun and the moon.

Day One

Day One

  • $4.99/£2.99

Traditional journals are all very well, but there's something wonderful about an app that you always have with you, into which you can save messages, images, locations and more, and then later retrieve everything via a search. Day One is beautifully designed and easy to use - best-in-class on the iPhone.

Fantastical 2

Fantastical 2

  • $3.99/£2.49

Fantastical 2 betters iOS 8's iffy Calendar app by way of a superior interface, a non-hateful method of dealing with reminders, and truly exceptional event input. The app has a powerful parser, and so while adding an event, you can enter the likes of "TechRadar lunch at 3pm on Friday", watching a live preview build as you type.



  • $0.99/69p

Figure crams Reason's rich history of classic-era electronic music apps into a shoebox. Via a mixture of dials and pads, you can create all manner of banging choons, and then export them and assault your friends' eardrums. It's a fun toy for anyone, but also has the chops to be part of a pro-musician's mobile set-up.



  • Free with new devices or $4.99/£2.99

Camera enables you to do the odd bit of cropping with video files, but iMovie is an audacious attempt to bring a full video editor to your iPhone, infused with the ease-of-use its desktop counterpart is renowned for. Amazingly, it succeeds. Effects, themes, credits and soundtrack creation then provide extra polish for your mobile filmmaking.

Launch Center Pro

Launch Center Pro

  • $4.99/£2.99

More or less a speed-dial for regularly performed tasks, Launch Center Pro can be a huge time-saver. You can create shortcuts for things like adding a new Tumblr post or sending your last photo to Twitter, and these shortcuts can be arranged in groups. An essential purchase if you heavily use even a handful of the supported apps.

Transmit for iOS


  • $9.99/£6.99

The app that defines iOS 8, Transmit for iOS is also a missing link for anyone who wanted a file manager for their iPhone. It might have roots in an OS X FTP client, but Transmit for iOS also integrates with cloud storage and local networked Macs. It's perfect for moving documents, renaming files, and creating archives to email or upload.



  • $4.99/£2.99

There are RSS readers that are more efficient, but Unread is the most pleasant to use. The interface begs you to sit back and take in articles from feeds you're subscribed to, and plentiful share options enable you to send content onwards. Note that although this is a free download, it's essentially for a demo; the full-price unlock gets you the regular app.

Weather Pro

Weather Pro

  • $2.99/£1.99

There are prettier and more stylish weather apps, such as Dark Sky (which we're also rather fond of), but it's WeatherPro that gets our vote, largely because of its accuracy. But it's also information-rich, with radars and detailed forecasts for your favourite locations.

Pocket Casts

Pocket Casts

  • $3.99/£2.49

Apple's Podcasts app has improved since its initial launch, but still falls short of Pocket Casts. The third-party app cleverly mixes elegance and character, with a friendly, easily browsable interface. Subscriptions can be filtered, and you can stream episodes of shows you've not yet downloaded.



  • $1.99/£1.49

Soulver eschews trying to recreate a traditional calculator on your iPhone. Instead, it's akin to jotting down calculations on the back of an envelope, but a magic envelope that pulls the numbers from your in-context sentences and gives you a total. Live currency conversion is built in, and you can save calculations and sync them via Dropbox or iCloud.

The Elements

The Elements

  • $13.99/£9.99

Originally the darling of the iPad, The Elements in late 2013 became a universal app, so it could be enjoyed on iPhones too. A rich, engaging digital book, it tells the story of the periodic table. Each of life's building blocks can be manipulated on the screen, before you delve into related facts and figures.

Vert 2

Vert 2

  • $1.99/£1.49

There are a lot of conversion apps about, but Vert 2 caught our eye through an interface that prizes clarity above all else. Beyond that, a combination of smart filtering and customisation cements the app's place on your home screen. And if you don't like the theme, you can easily make your own.



  • $1.99/£1.49

We've never been overly impressed with Apple's HDR, and it pales in comparison to vividHDR. The basic concept is the same: stunning, vibrant photos, capturing amazing details in both highlight and shadow. But vividHDR's combination of speed, presets and 'before and after' comparisons results in better photos - and that's what really matters.

ProCamera 8

Pro Camera 8

  • $3.99/£2.99

If you don't feel the iOS Camera app really cuts it, ProCamera 8 should give you what you need: a bunch of extra modes (night; rapid fire; anti-shake; timers) and a dedicated lightbox with a range of editing features and filters. You can even buy vividHDR (see elsewhere in this list) as an IAP.


Garage Band

  • $4.99/£3.99

Apple's GarageBand remains an impressive, ambitious app, turning your iPhone into a recording studio. You get synths, loops, drums, guitar amps and a DAW for arranging MIDI data, making it suitable for beginners and pros alike.



  • $9.99/£7.99

With its huge range of amps and effects, ToneStack is an excellent choice for guitarists wanting to make some noise by connecting their instrument to their iPhone. An ABY unit enables you to split the signal, for hugely complex set-ups. And if that's not enough, a slew of IAP provides yet more amps, stomp boxes and features, including an eight-track recorder.



  • $6.99/£4.99

We elsewhere mention Byword as a great iPhone writing tool, but Editorial is *the* app for people who want to have a huge amount of control over creating and processing their output. The writing interface is strong, but what makes Editorial is the means to quickly add custom snippets and integrate workflows for extending the app and saving you time.



  • $3.99/£2.99

Bloom was originally released to much acclaim way back in 2008. A collaboration between Brian Eno and Peter Chilvers, the app's all about exploring generative audio through touch. The result is a relaxing noodly musical experience, and recent updates have fully optimised it for modern Apple kit.

OmniGraffle 2

OmniGraffle 2

  • $49.99/£39.99

On the Mac, OmniGraffle 2 is well known for being a first-rate tool for working on diagrams and wireframes. It's finally reached the iPhone by way of the iPad, and while the smaller screen makes the going a touch fiddly, this is best-in-class on Apple devices. It's pricey, but you get what you pay for.



  • $1.99/£1.49

There are tons of gimmicky effects apps on the App Store, but Fragment propels itself far beyond any also-rans through offering something strikingly different. Via some taps and twiddling, any photo can be turned into an explosion of mirrors, your own personalised kaleidoscope. Practical? Not really. Engaging? Most definitely.

Procreate Pocket

Procreate Pocket

  • $2.99/£2.29

For illustrators on the go, Procreate Pocket is a must-have. You get a big range of brushes, transform tools, a superb painting engine, and a full-featured layer system. Alas, there's no IAP for magically improving your digital painting skills.



  • $4.99/£3.99

Workflow is all about automation. You can download sets of actions or compose your own, which can trigger iOS apps and related services. For example, you could create a Home screen icon to call a friend, or build a single-tap icon to get directions to your nearest coffee shop.



  • Free

Although iOS includes iCloud Keychain for securely storing/sharing login and payment details, 1Password is a better system. It's cross-platform, supports multiple identities and secure notes, and enables you to edit login details on your iPhone.

A pro mode IAP ($6.99/£4.99) adds multiple vaults for teams/families, categories for personal documents, tagging and custom fields.

BBC iPlayer

BBC iPlayer

  • Free

BBC iPlayer is our favourite TV catch-up app because it cares about the user experience. There are no ads, you can watch live TV, and you can access content broadcast over the past 30 days. Episodes can be downloaded to watch later, and there's AirPlay support for sending shows to your telly by way of an Apple TV.



  • Free

Should you find yourself in one of the supported cities (including Paris, London, New York and Berlin), you'll be grateful to have Citymapper on your iPhone — assuming you don't want to get lost.

The app finds where you are and then gets you from A to B, whether you want to walk, grab a taxi, or use public transport (for which live times are provided).

Documents 5

Documents 5

  • Free

Until Apple sees fit to give us a Files app for iOS, Documents 5 will have to take the strain. It's really a document reader, designed for displaying PDFs, but in having full iCloud Drive access, it can be used to manage local and remote files, and download documents to your iPhone from the web.



  • Free

There are plenty of solutions for transferring content between your computer and iPhone, including Apple's increasingly popular iCloud. Dropbox is still worth using, though. It has great cross-platform clients, integrates with iOS 8's Share sheets, and has direct support in many iOS apps.

Check out our essential tips for every Dropbox user.



  • Free

Duolingo is entirely free from IAP, which is extremely generous given the quality of the app and its potential for helping you learn a new language.

It's packed full of bite-size quizzes that you can dip into at any time, and that gradually build your vocabulary and grammar in any of the ten supported languages.



  • Free

Start using the eBay app and you won't go near the site on a PC again. It's fast, efficiently flags new finds based on your activity, and can be used to create new listings. The built-in bar-code scanner can save you loads of time with the last of those.



  • Free

The idea behind Evernote is you should never forget anything again. Instead, you upload and tag everything, so the service becomes your digital memory. For free, you can upload 60 MB of data per month. Go premium ($5/£4 per month) and you can upload a gargantuan 4 GB per month, search document text, and store your notebooks offline.

Evernote Scannable

Evernote Scannable

  • Free

Although Evernote Scannable is quite basic by iPhone scanner standards, it's also efficient and reliable. On launching the app, simply point your camera at a document that contrasts the surface behind it and the app will capture it. The JPEG can be sent to Evernote or shared via another service, and multiple scans are compiled to PDF.

Find My iPhone

Fine My iPhone

  • Free

Using Find My iPhone, you can always find where your device is, and keep track of any other devices on the same account. It's very useful if you've misplaced your device or think it's been stolen and want to know where it's at.

Google Maps

Google Maps

  • Free

Apple's own Maps app has improved a lot since its botched debut, but Google Maps remains a must-download for any iPhone user. It's far superior than Apple's app for walking directions, has a street-level view, enables you to search local businesses, and for some cities includes public transport information.

Google Translate

Google Translate

  • Free

The revamped Google Translate is an astonishing app. When online, it'll translate written, photographed or spoken text between a huge range of languages. And for English to French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish (and back), the app will try to live-translate whatever's in front of your iPhone's camera — even when you're offline.



  • Free

When you've a sizeable music collection, you can get stuck in a rut and always end up listening to the same thing. Groove tracks your listening habits and cross-references the data with last.fm.

The result is a constantly evolving selection of automated personalised playlists, which might change your iPhone music-listening habits forever.



  • Free

Instapaper was the service and app that kickstarted 'read later', the means to save web pages for later. Unlike Safari's Reading List, Instapaper strips articles back to just text and images, thereby providing an efficient and usable interface.

Premium membership ($2.99/£2.29 per month) unlocks the means to search your archive and add highlights to articles.

Movies by Flixter

Movies by Flixster

  • Free

Movies by Flixter is a simple, efficient app that figures out where you are, and then lists local cinemas, so you can check out what's on. Alternatively, you can select a film and the app will intelligently offer showtimes, enabling you to figure out where best to go.

Novation Launchpad

Novation Launchpad

  • Free

For beginners keen on making music, Launchpad is perfect. You choose a genre and then trigger loops with a tap. Effects are only a further swipe and tap away. If you really get into the app, there's IAP for further loops and the means to import your own audio.



  • Free

Now as synonymous with mobile exercise as Nike+, RunKeeper is an excellent app, backed by a robust social infrastructure. Using your iPhone's GPS, you can track exercise routes and then share activities with friends. IAP subscriptions are available for 'elite' users, and are ad-free and offer real-time sharing.



  • Free

FaceTime is a great alternative to standard voice calls, but it only works with Apple kit. Skype remains the best widely-used alternative for people you know distinctly lacking in Apple devices.

You get free calls to anyone else using Skype, and cheap calls to anywhere in the world. If you're on Pay and Go, this can be handy, and the app enables iPod touch users to call normal phones too.



  • Free

For the most part, social media is fleeting, but Timehop is all about digging up precious memories from the past. You link it to whatever social media services you frequent (and your on-device photos) and it shows you what was happening years ago on today's date.

TodoMovies 3

TodoMovies 3

  • Free

TodoMovies is a to-do list for movies. Using the clean, efficient interface, you can check out what's on (and, if you like, movies from the past) and fashion a list of films you want to see.

Usefully, the app provides the means to rate every movie, and so extended use results in a list of favourites you can delve into at any time.

TunnelBear VPN

Tunnel Bear VPN

  • Free

For free, TunnelBear VPN gives you 500 MB of private browsing that can worm its way around geo-locking. All you do is fire the app up and tell the bear where to tunnel. If you want unlimited data, it's yours for $2.99/£2.29 per month.



  • Free

It's a pity Twitter has felt the need to hobble third-party clients, given that its own app doesn't appear to need any help these days in fending off the competition. Twitter for iPhone is fast and efficient, boasts useful Connect and Discover views, and expands tweets that contain photos, videos and other media.



  • Free

You can do without most Today view widgets, but Vidgets provides some really useful monitoring tools.

The standalone app is where you manage your icon-like 'vigets', which comprise world clocks and indicators for storage and network speeds. That sole $2.99/£2.29 IAP is primarily for showing your support, but you do get an option for saving space by removing widget titles.



  • Free

There are plenty of Wikipedia clients (free and paid) for iPhone, but Wikipanion is our favourite. You get quick access to article sections, in-article search, viewing options, and a location-based map search. The paid [Plus version](https://itunes.apple.com/en/app/wikipanion-plus/id290613987?mt=8) ($4.99/£3.99) adds article queuing and downloading for offline reading.

Yousician Guitar

Yousician Guitar

  • Free

To some extent, Yousician Guitar is like Guitar Hero, only you use a real guitar that the app is teaching you how to play.

You start with basic plucking and strumming before moving on to working your way through full songs, the app scoring you as you go. For free, the app only restricts daily play time. To go unlimited, subscribe for $19.99/£14.99 per month.
