By  |  3 Comments

Here are the five apps that every iPhone 5 user needs to get because they take advantage of the iPhone 5′s more powerful processor, 4G LTE and the taller display

These apps for the iPhone 5 should make the phone fun and enjoyable to use.

The new A6 processor will make power-hungry games work better and play smoothly. The wider screen when holding the new iPhone 5 in landscape mode will give video viewers the same aspect ratio they get on their big beautiful HDTV. And the high-resolution display make images look beautiful. Add 4G LTE and these apps should pull graphics, videos and content off the web much faster.

    Just wanted to put my vote in again for NotesDeck as a great notes app on iPhone 5! Notes show up on all devices instantly (iPad, Mac and iPhone) and it syncs with Evernote and Dropbox (!!!) so all notes from other apps are already in it.
