Time magazine has come up with a compilation of 50 best iPhone apps. Here is a list of five best apps from the list, which improve the quality of life by either saving time or being an integral utility app.
With a slew of password management apps available as free and paid downloads, there is one app that scores more than the rest. The 1Password app from Agile Bits for iPhones is the most comprehensive password management app in the market. This app allows users to save usernames and passwords in an encrypted password vault. It works with Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android.
But the iPhone version of 1Password app supports "locking on exit" functionality. This requests users to enter password to the vault after a set duration of time for extra security. Also, this app allows users to set pin codes to let users access the app quickly. This means the user need not to type down the lengthier master password. Instead he/she can remember the simple pin code to log in. Hence, it is an easy way to bypass the complicated master password. Interested readers can check out this app from iTunes.
There are many "food planner" apps available in iTunes. But Allrecipes app for iPhones takes app usability to a whole new level. This comes packed with a huge collection of user submitted recipes of all varieties and styles across the globe. The other striking aspect is its menu planner feature. This enables the user to allot recipes for a week with the much-required customization option. Also, users can add the ingredients required for the recipe in a shopping list. By doing this, Allrecipes app provides an inclusive list categorized by various sections and quantities. At the same time, this list synchronizes with the iPhone for users to write down notes against each listed item. This app is an all-in-all app for food planning.

Digital audio book addiction is catching up across the globe. Audible app is ruling the roost in this arena. This app for iPhones has gone through many changes from the time it debuted in 2008.
