We use our iPhones more and more each day, and long gone are the times when we only used them to make calls and send messages with.
The App store first bounced into our life’s in 2008 and has since then turned our iPhones into our best friends. Apps have revolutionised the way we use our mobile devices and save us so much time and effort in our day to day life’s.
But there’s so much more in the App store, than the social media and banking apps that we know you’ll have on your phone right now. And with over 2 million apps available, which ones are the best?
You probably don’t have the time or inclination to wade through all of these, which is why we have put together this useful list. These are the apps that we think are the best, the most useful and the most entertaining.
Have you ever heard a song and got it stuck in your head for hours? A catchy little tune that you keep on humming but have no idea who the artist or what the song title is. So, what do you do now?
Do you try and sing it to your friends and replicate the song as best you can, without sounding too ridiculous? Or you could type some of the lyrics into Google and hope for the best. Either way, by now that song just won’t go away.
SoundHound works like a bloodhound on the trail of an interesting scent. Nose to the ground, it will soon find the song and even let you download it. You can also check out the lyrics which pop up on screen ‘karaoke-style’.
Either hum the mystery tune into your iPhone or let the app listen for itself. It really is a clever little thing, and best of all it’s free!
We all know how annoying it is when we’re enjoying ourselves surfing the web on our mobiles, and bam we get peppered with ads, pop up’s and anything else that may be lying in wait to track our every move. And no, we don’t want to receive emails about the best purple knitting patterns either, thanks.

Casino games such as Blackjack and Poker date back several centuries and to this day, they remain two of the most popular card games world wide. Quite unsurprisingly then, online casinos have created their own apps in order to allow their players to play these classic casino games on the web. With the introduction of casinos online, however, came slot games.
Online Slot games utilised modern day technology in order to become arguably the most popular type of casino game. There are tens of thousands of different slot games, each of them unique in their own way with a variety of themes. For example, if you are a fan of Marvel films, there are several Marvel themed slot games for you to play. You can play a slot based on Game of Thrones, another based on the Street Fighter video game and there are several which are Monopoly themed – you know, the Monopoly board game.
However, probably the most popular ever slot game is Rainbow Riches by Scientific Gaming. Rainbow Riches started out as a land-based slot game which occupied the dark corners of betting shops and UK pubs. Now-a-days, Rainbow Riches has inspired numerous spin-offs, all of which can be played at most online casinos on the web.
“The Rainbow Riches slot game is based on the famous Irish legend of finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and leprechaun O’Leary will be your lucky charm in this quest.” – Source ( https://www.playfrank.com/en-gb/casino/slots/scientific-games/rainbow-riches )
