Unlike other flashy apps that do nothing more than flattering you or helping you kill your time, utility apps pack some serious stuff in your iPhone. The apps actually make your iPhone useable anywhere, anytime. A smartphone is one that saves you from all troubles and tribulations. And therefore, utility apps are essential for smart users to download first on their iPhones and iPads.

Earlier we have listed many different apps in specific categories; for example personal finance apps, weight loss apps, dieting apps, etc. But the list below can be a combination of every useful app that you were looking for to make your life comfortable.

Best Utility Apps for iPhone and iPad

#1. Safari

Safari iPhone and iPad App IconBefore the launch of iPhone, browsing Internet on a smartphone was not a good experience for users. Once Steve Jobs asserted his contempt for this in a famous phrase “baby Internet”. Safari is developed by Apple and therefore, it fully supports all iOS devices and OS X. Users can explore all the features of Safari web browsers while using it on iPhone or iPad. Though Apple facilitates other web browsers for iPhone, the brand doesn't allow any other engine except for Safari.

#2. Dark Sky

Dark Sky Weather iPhone App IconName of the app resembles any Hollywood flick, but it's an excellent weather app. Though there is a stock weather app on your iPhone, Dark Sky can easily beat that with its precision. The app uses your iPhone's GPS to decide your exact location; based on this information, Dark Sky sends you precise weather alerts. For example, you have to attend an important meeting, and you receive an alert that it might rain after 30 minutes, you can quickly reschedule the meeting.

#4. Google
