Best Utilities for iPhone

Google Plus Photo Importer

When migrating to Google+ from another social network, the task of transferring countless online photo albums can be a lengthy process. Google Plus Photo Importer uses cloud-to-cloud technology to pull photos from Facebook, among other online services, and import them straight into a Google+ account. Quick and easy, this app can save you plenty of time and groundwork and the process is easy to manage, quick and effective. The only downside is that this app is on the pricey side.

Live Lock Screen For iOS 5

This app turns your iPhone’s lock screen into a basic image slideshow. You can set parameters, such as which images are displayed, frequency and you can even designate a backing track from your iTunes Library. It’s a good item for brightening up your lock screen, but seeing as most of us rarely stare at the screen when our phone isn’t in use raises questions about the need for such an app, especially when you have to pay for it. A good idea, but a slightly superfluous one.

RemoteSound – Using the iOS device as PC Speaker

If you want to listen to music on your PC in another room wirelessly, you can stream it to your iPhone via this app by downloading a PC client first. It’s quick and it works perfectly over Wi-Fi, so if you can’t bare to be parted from your digital music collection then this app will ensure that it can stay with you, even if you’re in a completely different room to your PC provider. We recommend trying the free ‘Lite’ version first, though.

Slide To Do

Slide To Do is a simple task manager that enables you to create chore lists with various descriptions and icons, then map the entire list to your iPhone’s home screen, so you’ll hopefully never forget an important entry again. The only downside is that you can’t set alarms for entries, which sends this app plummeting down the pecking order considerably when you consider that your free iOS 5 Reminders app prvides alerts and is a lot more intuitive and easy to set up than this one. Hard to recommend.

TaskFlow – Visual Tasks & Checklists

This is a solid task manager app at a modest price. Set alarms, schedule dates, and more. The layout is clean and creating tasks is simple, yet you can create intricate schedules with ease. Again we beg the question – why buy this when your free iOS 5 Reminders app provides all of the task management tools you need? If you have tried Apple’s freebie and need the additional functions that this one provides though, then it works fantastically well.
