10 Best iOS Apps Of 2013

Get the most from your iPhone or iPad with these App Store gems.
2 of 11

Google Maps
What a long, strange trip it's been. The original Maps app in iOS was powered by Google Maps until Apple switched to its own homegrown mapping system in mid-2012. Google Maps returned to the iOS App Store a year ago, albeit as a third-party alternative to Apple's Maps app.  
So why did Google Maps make our Top 10 list? Because it delivers an excellent set of mapping tools for iPhone and iPad users. The latest version, in addition to being optimized for iOS 7, has plenty of cool tools, including voice-guided GPS navigation, 360-degree Street View tours, and public transit, biking, and walking directions. Alas, if only Apple would let iOS users choose their default mapping app. Ha! Dream on.

Go for 2014!
Interesting and surprising top.

Duolingo definitely deserves its place here. It's like I've been learning Spanish and Italian all year long! Paper was a great surprise too.

Since I have a new job I'm using Beesy, a productivity management app really cool. You should have a look a it for you're the 2014 top.

Email for business
Email for Business is another app that I think should have been a part of such a list. I have been using it for quite some time and my emaling headache has literally vanished.

I believe Evernote should be on the list. It's a super useful app, and it always works great. It's one of my top favorite apps.
