The Year’s 100 Best iPhone Apps

Hey, I’m Chris. I wrote this article and I’m also the founder and Editor of DailyTekk. Lets connect on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and YouTube. Check back daily!


Last week DailyTekk brought you The 100 Best iPad Accessories and the week before that our annual list of The 100 Best, Most Interesting Blogs and Websites of 2014. This week we’re bringing you the best-of-the-best iPhone apps in the iOS ecosystem right now. I guess you could call these editor’s picks (the list is purely based on opinion). There are awesome iPhone apps that aren’t on this list as well, but by breaking the list into 20 categories, it left room for only 5 per section. All links go directly to the app store. Some of the apps are premium (paid) and some are free but all are very cool. Let me know what I might have missed in the comments.
