What's the one iOS app you wouldn't be able to live without?

The one app you'd take if you had an iPhone and were stranded on an island where you could only have one app on your phone (the island has service miraculously)

    Any song. One tap away.

    My favorite app of all time. I feel like I might go a bit stir crazy without music. Also, it'd make whatever time I had to spend on the island much more enjoyable, not to mention all the dance parties I could have. I imagine myself like a Disney princess in a montage, making my way in my own isolated world, jamming TF out as I create shelter and daydream ๐Ÿ’ƒ

    Snapchat has a new look & discovery features

    If you look at my iPhone battery usage, Snapchat is always at the top along with Twitter. If I had to choose, I'd probably pick Snapchat.

    I think Facebook would be the most useful. Can contact people for help, get news, watch endless videos to entertain yourself.

    Be less busy. Real-time messaging, archiving & search.

    For work, but also personally have a couple slack channels with friends to simply take convos from the desktop to mobile and back. Much more fluid than Messages.

    Quartz for iPhone

    An ongoing conversation about the news

    Haris QureshiLeading EMEA Customer Success @ Hired ยท Written
    We're getting busier and busier, and the way consume news is changing. What I love about Quartz is that it gives me a nice overview of what's happening in the world in an easy and digestible way from where I can then delve further. Essential for keeping up to date with what's happening in the world.
  6. What is Twitter? Nobody really knows, but I know I use it all day long. I've made interesting relationships I otherwise wouldn't have, is one of my primary news sources (nuzzel) and am constantly learning from my network. If Twitter didn't exist and I had to use Facebook as a replacement I'd probably consider getting an old Nokia 3310. Saw one fall from *9 stories* and it survived!

    I want to know where I've been.
  8. if I had an iPhone and were stranded on an island where I could only have one app on your phone and the island has service miraculously, I would choose the native phone application so I could call the rescue services and get help :)

    The best feed reader just got better

    oz lublingProduct Strategy & Design ยท Written
    I've been using this RSS reader consistently for the past 5 years or so. As Twitter becomes filled with trolls, ads and too much emphasis on political chatter, this app is a reliable and easy way to consume your favorite information sources. It's super fast, has a clean design and integrates with many 3rd party tools like pocket, instapaper, etc.
