Four essential apps to install on the all-new iOS 10

The long-awaited iOS 10 is finally upon us, and that means that Apple users across the globe are walking into lamp posts and meandering out into traffic as we get to know the shiny new OS.

Please, we beg you: be safe.

Now our iPhones are so greatly improved, a new question arises: Which apps should we install to make the most of iOS 10?

Don’t worry. We’ve got you. Here are four of our favourites. Click the names for the links.

Inbox by Gmail

We all use Gmail, and we all need to check emails on our phones. However, the Gmail app has been oddly inconsistent throughout its lifetime. Thankfully, Inbox by Gmail is a fresher approach to the issue, and works much better.


This is one of those apps that seems so simple, yet changes the whole way you interact with your phone. A lightning-quick note taking app, Drafts allows you to jot down your thoughts then action them in a matter of clicks. A must-have for those who walk, type and think all at once.


If you travel often, as we do, but don’t always have the foresight to look up public transport options in your destination city, CityMapper is a lifesaver. With up-to-date departure information and real-time planning options, CityMapper is usually better than the official public transport apps in most cities.

SurfEasy VPN

Sure, we’re biased, but experts agree that you’d be a fool not to invest in a VPN these days, and even Apple recommends that their users use VPNs when connecting to unsecured WiFi hotspots. SurfEasy VPN is all geared up and ready to go on iOS 10, with four new regions for Ultra VPN plan users and servers in 16 countries in total. And it’s not just for iOS 10; one account can be linked to up to five devices.

So what are you waiting for? Go to today to get started.

And remember: Heads up when you’re crossing the road, no matter how pretty iOS 10 is.
