Every iPhone comes with a slew of Apple’s own first-party apps.
Thankfully, though, the App Store is overflowing with alternative apps, many of which are better than Apple’s.
Whether you’re looking to organize your photos, get work done, or get around town, we’ve scoured the App Store for the best apps that are better than the default ones on your iPhone.
Instead of Mail, use Edison Email. EasilyDoMail.com
I try new email apps all the time, but after using Outlook for a while, I’ve fallen in love with another app, Edison Email.
It’s incredibly fast, highly customizable, and, most importantly, it’s both smarter and more proactive than any other email app I’ve used. It automatically scans your emails for purchases, receipts, attachments, calendar dates, and more, and it’ll automatically put those emails into separate, appropriately labeled folders that appear on your sidebar. It’s super nifty — you can read my review of it here.

Instead of Calendar, use Google Calendar. Digital Trends
I’ve used Google’s calendar app on the desktop for years — but even if you haven’t, you’ll feel right at home on Google Calendar, which is beautiful to look at and easy to use.
Like Apple’s Calendar, it can pull in data from Google, Facebook, and iCloud, but it presents all the information in a much more useful way than Apple’s default app does. The top half of the screen shows you the whole month, and the lower half of the screen shows you what’s up next. You can scroll down to see what’s coming up, and you can tap the top right corner of the screen to jump back to the present day. It’s all incredibly intuitive.

Instead of Notes, use Evernote. iTunes
Apple’s Notes for iOS has gotten better in recent years, but Evernote is still the best way to create different types of notes and keep them organized across all your devices.
With Evernote, you can create notes out from photos or text, flag notes to revisit later, set reminders for yourself, and tag your notes in various ways to stay organized. Better yet, if you take pictures of documents and upload them to Evernote, its powerful search function can even scan those PDFs and other documents. And, of course, Evernote syncs across all devices — phones, tablets, laptops, and desktops.
