Apple default apps that you should replace – Apple app alternatives – Better apps than Apple iPhone default apps

Best apps to replace your iPhone default apps with.
Best apps to replace your iPhone default apps with.

Your iPhone comes with default Apple apps.  Yes, these are the ones Apple support thinks will work best for your iPhone, but, the Apple tech support folks are wrong with a few of them.

Here are the apps you should use on your iPhone instead of the the Apple default apps:

  • Use Google Maps instead of Apple Maps – This is really a no-brainer especially since Google just added better navigation with live traffic and accident reports.
  • Use Evernote instead of Notes – Note-taking is much easier and syncs across all your devices.
  • Use Check the Weather instead of Weather app – Know when it’s going to rain up to the minute.
  • Use Spotify instead of iTunes – Don’t pay at all for any songs, stream them, and don’t take up any space.
  • Use Clear instead of Reminders – Swipe to check off your to-do items.  The design is far superior.
  • Use Brewster instead of Contacts – Personalized address books that links in your social networking.
  • Use GroupMe instead of Messages – Free texting that allows you to text your location to friends and has lots of emoticons.
  • Use Fantastical instead of Calendar – Layout is better and entering events is much quicker.
  • Use Flayvr instead of Photos – Easy way to find all photos instead of the lumped in Camera Roll.
