  2. JW Says:

    No…but they do have a snapgUIde app.

  3. ashley Says:

    snapguide is one app…article headline says ten…what are the other nine????

  4. Judith Walton Says:

    Also, at the very top right corner of the picture of the first app is the word “next”. You can click on that, also.

  5. rob Says:

    look in upper right corner!! hit next

  6. Bill Says:

    @Ashley – Click the next button (top right)

  7. cas Says:

    @ashley: There is a tiny navigation button at the right of the main photo, it is a slideshow.

  8. Davey Snow Says:

    Ashley, there’s an app that thinks for you too…lol

  9. Tom M Says:

    Jack, meet Ashley. Ashley, say hi to Jack. You sound like you’d make a wonderful couple.

  10. slosburglar Says:

    Tom: hahahaha, i love some poeples stupidity… and the fact that four more poeple felt the need to tell her how to do it after the first person.

  11. Manowar Says:

    Poor U/I design and planning for this article – fire the whole lot.

  12. dg Says:

    Well I had almost the same issues as ashley. I couldn’t see where the other apps were. Using chrome. The next breadcrumb is just above the next button in the snapshot. And the next arrow is so small it blends into the image. Just looking at it quickly with my 10 second internet sense nothing stood out as Next. I was getting ready to move on in the internet and noticed the small arrow in the middle of the image. Once you click into the apps the navigation changes and becomes more noticeable. And none of the apps seemed particularly useful for me. My twitter is anonymous and my Facebook is public. I would never connect the two in any way.

  13. lawlio Says:

    yeah… piss poor navigation. their loss.

    tired of these 10 things blah blah blah that they end up getting 10X ad revenue for.

  14. Wx4Mark Says:

    DarkSky – does the author even use the app in a day-to-day scenario? Sure it all sounds awesome and amazing – but does it work? No. It’s not possible to give that information at that temporal resolution with any accuracy. A user will find that they are being told things will happen (snow is immenent, rain in 5 minutes, yada, yada) and it will not occur. Give it a shot – I did – and it does not help – when something wrong as often as right, it’s worth nothing – so what is it worth when it’s wrong more than it’s right?

  15. Best Reader Says:

    TopStory is the best news app for iPhone. This app can replace individual news apps, since all the news papers are available in this app. Supports 60 editions, 28 Languages and includes more than 25000 publishers.

  16. Audrey Chu Says:

    Hi just want to share with everyone a very cool app—Easy Taxi. You can book secure and metered taxis by a simple click on your phone. You can also track taxi drivers real-time on a map. Download Easy Taxi now and try it out!

  17. iPhone Apps Says:

    In all application i have use only one application which is SLEEP TIME boz the data is clean (straight-forward, easy to read) and potentially fallible. I’m a fan of its unique (to me) alarm window that chooses the moment you’re active near your alarm time to ring if possible rather than letting you fall deeper back into sleep (inactive) again only to yank you out of that with the arbitrary alarm time you’ve set. I am aware that my cat Could be influence its decision to sound when it does but, so far, I haven’t been disappointed. The fact that the alarm sound fades in, too, is nice.

  18. Jackie Ortgnia Says:

    I cannot post anything on my timeline that fits – I can’t get the whole post to show in the space – it shows great on my newsfeed – Why ? or what can I Do ???

  19. TD Says:

    Tom M., your comment is hilarious…and I do agree about those 2.

  20. dennis Says:

    slosburglar should learn to spell or change his name to forest gump

  21. NW Says:

    This Ashley sounds like a real moron!

  22. Eric Will Made IT Says:

    Selly CRM is a great app for anyone in sales. It makes it easy to track products, sales, meetings, customers, etc. I’m a freelance graphic designer so I use it a ton. It should definitely be on this list.

  23. BoatFanatic Says:

    tried the Aqua Map USA and I loved it. Especially the GeoPhotos and GPS tracks sharing as KMZ. I loaded them on Google Earth and it looks really nice

  24. Jeff Says:

    Don’t bother with the DogWhistler … Have it and never seems to work without paying for the “ProPack” … no matter how many times you click “No Thanks” the prompt keeps coming up … Oh, my dog never even reacts to the sound generated and my hearing can’t tell either … Another bogus app

  25. Constance Says:

    Is there an app out yet (for android and iPhone) that would be comparable to ‘Bump’? Need an effortless way to share contact info at conferences!!

  26. Nathan Brakke Says:

    I have found that the Soal iPhone App makes me smile. It lets you save voices of friends and family with pictures. You can also make your selfies speak. It’s kind of like an audio journal. Sweet design too, with a horizontal timeline. Why are all other timelines vertical by the way??

  27. Aline Henderson Says:

    PLEASE put a link on these pages to view all the slides as a single page, like so many other similar web sites do. Really, it’s just such a nuisance to have to pull up a whole new page to see the next slide, especially if your device is running slow.

  28. soumik Says:

    i am using instafusion blending app.it has a very easy and beautiful interface.

  29. ashley jones Says:

    this I not help me at all.

  30. Jason Wells Says:

    For games, I would recommend Laserbreak. Very unique and addictive – a little bit like Portal.

  31. Fanny Says:

    Hi, I thought you might be interested also in Swingmail app. It’s a free app for iPhone that’s unifying conversations from Gmail, iCloud-mail, Twitter, Facebook, and calls in one inbox. By also adding a prioritizing function, it helps users stay focused on their most important conversations at any given time or place.

  32. James Says:

    Hey, you forgot “Go Planets.” This is an beautiful game that lets you shoot across space and enter black holes.Its like the next Flappy Birds.

  33. The Shire Says:

    There are absolutely no reviews for “Go Planets”. Have you even played it?

    “Its like the next Flappy Birds.” LOL, I think not!
