Our lives revolve around our smartphones. There’s no way of getting around that unless you turn back time and dust off that Moto Razr you have in the closet. For the rest of us, we’re immersed in apps to get most of our daily tasks and errands completed.
Apple offers some great apps out of the box, but what if you want something beyond stock? Apps such as Mail and Calendar have been the de facto apps of choice but many third-party options offer improved functionality and features.
We’ve found some great alternatives that are worth checking out.
Email is an alternative email app that boasts such features like unsubscribing with one tap, swipe gestures, and real-time package tracking—all in a clean design that’s reminiscent of Apple’s stock app.
Google Calendar streamlines the calendar experience with Schedule View, highlighting the events for every day along with syncing with your Gmail—including flights, hotels, concerts and restaurant reservations.
