Android and iOS operating systems are more and more similar from year to year. We are not only talking about appearance and functions, but also applications. Most applications that are popular can be found on both platforms, and if not, at least they have alternatives. In this article, however, we will look at iOS exclusive application, which you will not find on Android and if they have alternatives, they are definitely not of such quality. In the next article, we’ll look at what apple users may envy Android users.
The new Clubhouse social network has been a phenomenon in recent weeks. Everyone from speakers to celebrities to influencers is involved, and ordinary mortals have the opportunity to listen to them at least, and if they are lucky, they can ask them something. There is no chat, smileys or anything like that in the Clubhouse. It’s all about the conversation in the individual rooms, which are managed by moderators. They can take anyone to the podium to take the floor.
Relatively strict conditions apply in this social network and thanks to them it is mostly in a friendly impression. Players are unlucky because they can get a ban right away that can’t be canceled. A number of interesting people from the Czech or world scene regularly perform here and sometimes reveal information about themselves that they would not say elsewhere. It should be added that Clubhouse prohibits the recording of any conversations without the knowledge of the moderator and with his express consent. It is certainly one of the most interesting iOS exclusive applications.
Apollo for Reddit
Apollo for Reddit is without a doubt one of the most popular clients for this platform. It is much better than the default Reddit application and also has a lot of useful features. We can mention, for example, fully customizable gestures, fast switching between subreddits via the Jump Bar function or a very good Markdown editor, in which you can not only write new posts, but also comments. If you live with Reddit, you will be directly excited about the application.
Much better is also a media browser, inbox or the ability to have multiple accounts. But we can also mention a successful dark regime. The application is available free of charge, but if you want to take advantage of all the benefits, you will have to pay CZK 29 per month.
Overcast is the best podcast app we’ve ever used. The application stands out mainly due to its minimalist and elegant design. The first thing you’ll see when you open the app is the list of podcasts you watch. Click the plus button to scroll through the new podcasts, which are additionally based on each category. We can mention culture, business, history, technology, personal development, sports or science. Overcast is simply an app for podcasts and doesn’t try to be anything else, which is exactly the thing we appreciate.
Things 3 is one of the best iOS apps for us. The developers will pay for it relatively solidly (the version on the iPhone costs CZK 249), on the macOS it even costs CZK 1,290, which is definitely not a small amount of money. Well, what do you get for your money? Probably the best taskman in the world. The developers at Culture Code have been loyal to apple makers since the first iPhone was released, and they’re probably not going to change anything.
Tweetbot is one of the best Twitter clients that has now been released in its sixth version. It uses the new Twitter API and has some great new features. If you are often on Twitter, you probably know that the default application is not exactly the clearest. Tweetbot 6 is an interesting alternative which, like Apollo for Reddit, offers a clearer interface and more advanced functions than the default applications.
