I’m thrilled to be sharing this article on hacktik.com. It is a great source of information for all things technology. I particularly enjoyed this article about how to protect your iPhone from hackers.

Selecting useful applications from the App Store for your iPhone has its pitfalls. You could spend hours overwhelming intimidated by the vast selection when you should be spending that time using them.


While a vast selection of apps sounds like a blessing, many apps are designed by amateurs and provide useless utility. You waste a buck on an app that amuses you for maybe five minutes and then you think, “Okay, what now?” Even some corporate tools are nothing more than an advertisement living in your phone. Some apps may even be malicious malware for your iPhone, ultimately causing problems with your general use of the phone (depending on what you allowthe app to do).

There are still plenty of great apps though; you just have to know where to look. Let’s take a look at five useful apps that you don’t want to miss.


There’s no shortage of productivity and to-do list apps available, but Todoist has incredible customizable features, such as renewing due dates, micromanaging tasks, and organizing items into different categories. With its smooth syncing ability, it automatically syncs your activity on multiple device platforms so you can update at home or on the go. It is definitely the best productivity app on the market.


If you are traveling with your iPhone and/or frequently hopping onto public Wi-Fi networks, you want to make sure you are using a VPN service (virtual private network). A VPN will allow you to connect to an offsite server through an encrypted connection. The server then retrieves your data and sends it over to you. You can rest assured that you will be secure with ExpressVPN and maintain privacy without interception on an unsecure public network. Another great advantage of this useful app is accessing websites associated with geographic restrictions.

Although it comes at a cost, it’s well worth the protection. After searching through a great deal of VPN apps, ExpressVPN showed itself as a clear favorite among many users and critic sites.


For the more physically inclined iPhone users out there, MyFitnessPal is the best option if you are trying to lose weight or get back in shape. Users will want to take advantage of its great features to track progress in nutrition and other noted lifestyle changes. This app is extremely user-friendly and acts as a great motivator for a continuous, healthy lifestyle.

Weather Underground

There are a great number of weather applications out there, but Weather Underground has two marketable qualities: free and effective. It lacks clutter and other problematic glitches that many other iPhone weather apps have. This weather apps provides both localized and general weather updates from around the globe—more than you could ever hope to utilize.

Google Translate

You likely already have some sort of GPS or travel application, but do you have an app that helps you understand the foreign languages you encounter when you travel? Google Translate is an app that you can’t go without when exploring new lands and navigating through frustrating language barriers. Provided by Google, this app handles over 30 different languages with excellent accuracy.

Whatever type of app you’re looking for, I hope the recommendations above will find a place somewhere on your iPhone. I believe that these apps will make an iPhone even more productive than it already is.
