APP utilities

Have you noticed that a lot of the good utility apps cost money? Well, what if I were to tell you that you could get over 65 different apps for just $0.99? Well, that’s exactly what you get when you download APPtilities | 65+ in 1 onto your “iDevice!” It has everything from social network interfaces to camera and system information apps; over 65 of them total!

When you open APPtilities, the main menu is set up a lot like the dashboard on your iDevice! You can easily rearrange and delete apps by touching and holding an app to enter the app management mode and either dragging icons to a new location, or touching the little “x” to delete that app.

The great thing about a lot of the apps included in APPtilities is how simple they are! For example, the voice memo app just has a “+” button to add new memos. Removing them is as simple as swiping and touching the “Delete” button that pops up! The camera app is also pretty basic. It adds a little bit of extra functionality, without making the interface complicated!

All of the utilities that I tried had very simple to learn controls, and the developers added one more feature that I think a lot of people will really appreciate! If you go to the last screen you’ll see a “Web Apps” icon. Touching this icon will bring up a web browser. All you have to do is browse to the web app you want to use later with this browser and touch the “Add Shortcut” button in the bottom right corner of the screen. Once you do that all you have to do is type in a name for the web app and it will appear in the APPtilities dashboard as another app!

Another great feature is the ability to create one-touch buttons for getting in contact with people! To do this all you have to do is open up the “Shortcuts” icon that starts out by default on the last screen, next to the “Web Apps” icon. You can set these buttons to call, email, or sms any contact in your address books and they are a great way to stay in contact with people!

What I came to find is that the more I played with this app, the more features I became fond of! Something that shouldn’t be taken for granted either is the fact that this app can save you a lot of time if you just need something quickly and don’t want to install another app for it. If you’ve ever considered buying any of the cheap little utilities like calculators, RSS readers, metronomes, and dictionary’s that the App Store has to offer, but you decided against it because of price this is really a no-brainer. So if you’re still reading this, what are you waiting for? Download your copy of APPtilities today for the $0.99 from the App Store!
