Our list is being updated all the time with the newest and best apps we come across. Here are the latest additions to our collection of favorite iPhone apps.


Nintendo’s first mobile app is Miitomo, a social game lets you create a digital avatar and interact with others. You can dress up your mii and play mini-games, but where it really shines is the ability to add friends in person and through social media networks. You can also take pictures of your mii.



Wikipedia finally made a revised version of its iOS app, which aims to give you better recommendations for content that you’re interested in and match you with articles that pertain to your interests. The app now offers users an “Explore” feed with a number of the most popular articles, as well as a featured article and picture of the day.



Reddit finally made an official app, and it’s out on iOS right now. Now you can browse endless cat GIFs wherever you are. Although dozens of apps on iOS and Android offer the same type of content and present it in a better package, it’s great that Reddit finally made an app. According to this long thread, Reddit plans to update the app with a lot of other features soon.


TaskRabbit iOS

If you haven’t heard of TaskRabbit — it essentially lets you ask people to complete tasks for you, with payment of course. The app will pair you with a “tasker” within five minutes after you have made your request. Your task will also be completed within 90 minutes, which is super fast. Don’t worry, you can still schedule tasks if that’s your preference.



Avid readers will love Goodreads. The app is basically a community of readers, suggesting great books and discussing plotlines. You can get personalized recommendations to find what to read next, keep a wish list of books, rate and review your favorites, share notes as you read, and join the online community of bookworms.



Malarie Gokey/Digital Trends

Want to invest in companies that support the things you care about? Motif lets you invest in portfolios of stocks based on your interests, and you can even sell your own portfolios for others to use. The app is full of investment news and advice, too, so you can be sure that you’re making good decisions.



Starz joined in on the streaming app craze with its own subscription app. For $9 a month, you can stream all your favorite Starz shows like Outlander and Power without a cable subscription. All you need is an iOS device and an Internet connection. The company plans to add tons of movies to the service soon, too.
