Apps for Apple iOS

All apps tested by myself. Sorted by app name (date of purchase at Apple App Store, start of testing in brackets), my own rating with 1-5 stars


1Blocker X: Faster & Safer Web

Developer: Salavat Khanov (27.04.2018 for 5.49 EUR) ***** 5 stars
Compatibility: Requires iOS 11.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Language: English and Russian.
Why you need 1Blocker: Block annoying ads | Save battery, data and time | Protect yourself online | Improve your productivity
Best Adblocker for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch!


CalenGoo - for Google Calendar and iCloud

Developer: Dominique Andre Gunia (01.09.2016 for 6.99 EUR) ***** 5 stars
Compatibility: Requires iOS 8.0 or newer.
Languages: German, English, French, Burmese, Italian.
The developer is very friendly, helpful and competent! The app is absolutely worth the price! I have been using the Android version since  09.12.2011 and now use the iOS version with my iPhone. It has the same ingenious user interface!
Best calendar app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch!

Works even without Google and iCloud!

If you have not already done so, first configure an e-mail account on the iPhone (Settings / Email / Accounts, Add Account). At first start you'll see two blue buttons with white text: Sync with [Google Calendar] or [iOS / iCloud]. If you value privacy or comply with German privacy policy, select [iOS / iCloud], no Google account will be requested.
Do not choose iCloud, Google, Yahoo, Aol or Outlook.com, because they are not subject to any European privacy policy!
Home users better trust on Posteo.de and for business customers I recommend 1&1 IONOS Mail Business.
Turn on CalenGoo Options / Accounts "Show iPhone Calendar". Google, iCloud and Evernote are not required!


Cesium Music Player "Cs Music"

Developer: Mike Clay (28.12.2016 for 1.99 EUR) ***** 5 stars
Compatibility: Requires iOS 11.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Languages: German, English, French, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Dutch, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Ukrainian, Simplified Chinese.
Cesium is an anagram for (e-) m-u-s-i-c.

Some quotes from App Store reviews:


Date & Time Calculator (9 in 1)

Developer: Thomas Tsopanakis (02.06.2016 for 0.99 EUR) ***** 5 stars
Compatibility: Requires iOS 10.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Languages: English.
Date and Time Calculator (9 in 1) is the perfect time calculation tool. It is by far the best and most accurate time calculator for iOS!


DB Navigator

Developed by Deutsche Bahn AG (26.03.2016 for free) *** 3 stars
Compatibility: Requires iOS 9.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Languages: German, English.
My Trip: Get real-time information and up-to-date departure and arrival times. Booking: Book tickets for ICE, IC/ EC trains including S-Bahn, U-Bahn, bus and tram. Quick booking: Book your ticket in only a few steps. Mobile phone tickets: Book and manage tickets in the app. Coach sequence: Find out before the train arrives in which platform section your coach will stop.
Due to improved user guidance I now give 3 stars (now less annoying banner: Siri voice command for this connection/add to Siri). The unreliable delay indicator, which is removed quickly after the train has left, does not contribute to confidence building.


Annual Leave

Developer: Tobias Knieper (27.03.2016 for 0.99 EUR) ***** 5 stars
Compatibility: Requires iOS 10.3 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Languages: German, English, Dutch.
While searching for a holiday planning app that also takes bridge days into account, I noticed this app very positively.
Because the developer answered my request for a holiday update for 2017 promptly, I give it 5 stars.
Addendum 03.07.2016: The update is here with the holidays of the next years and Tobias Knieper informed me immediately by mail!


Kindle

Developed by Amazon (15.08.2016 for free) ***** 5 stars
Compatibility: Requires iOS 11.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Languages: German, English, French, Italian, Japanese, Dutch, Portuguese, Spanish, Simplified Chinese.
Some books you can unfortunately get only as eBook and mostly as Kindle by Amazon. So I could buy the books of Arno Endler who is an excellent German novelist. Because I had purchased books from the very recommendable German authoress Eva Lirot long time before to read them online on my notebook I have tried now first time the Kindle App for iOS. I have no regrets. It works flawless. For the iPhone 6s Plus and its successors the app is perfect. Like a little pocketbook. Important tip: check the battery level occasionally and take an external battery with you if you use your iPhone frequently on the move as a precaution, because the energy consumption of the iPhone when reading is higher than that of a Kindle.


contactGroups

Developer: Thomas Kroll (16.06.2017 for 2.29 EUR) **** 4 stars
Compatibility: Requires iOS 10.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Languages: German, English, French, Spanish
Unfortunately, Apple believes that we do not need customer contact groups. Therefore, no contact group management has been replenished yet.
After all, this app works as expected and you can delete even by apps like DND Director left group names.


Lirum Info

Developer: Rogerio Hirooka (12.04.2016 for 2.99 EUR) **** 4 stars
Compatibility: Requires iOS 10.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Languages: German, English, French, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Dutch, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Swedish, Spanish, Thai, Tradit. Chinese, Turkish, Vereinf. Chinese.
Lirum Device Info is the most complete and elegant app for getting the real-time status of your device. Unfortunately, Apple has now prevented access to some interfaces (APIs), so e.g. it can not show the temperature of the CPU or battery. The developer is not to blame! If you mainly wanted to buy such a monitoring app, wait until Apple releases the API again.


OTP Auth (Pro)

Developer: Roland Moers (22.09.2018 for free, In-App purchase for 4.49 EUR) ***** 5 stars
Compatibility: Requires iOS 10.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Languages: German and English
With OTP Auth, one-time passwords can be used for two-factor authentication from Dropbox, GitHub, Gmail, ProtonMail, and many others.

Strongbox Password Safe (Pro)

Developer: Mark McGuill (30.04.2019 very fair free trial period for Pro version: 3 months! After that I like to buy for once 29.99 EUR) ***** 5 stars
Basic version: for free, w/o ads. Pro version: once 29.99 EUR or subscription: 2.49 EUR/Month | 6.49 EUR/3 Months | 10.49 EUR/Year)

System Status

Developed by Techet (27.03.2016 for 2.99 EUR) **** 4 stars
Compatibility: Requires iOS 9.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Languages: English
Unfortunately, Apple has meanwhile prevented access to some interfaces (APIs) meanwhile, so that z. B. can not show the temperature of the CPU or battery. The developer can not help it! If you mainly wanted to buy such a monitoring app, wait until Apple releases the API again.


Warnwetter (engl.: Warning Weather) full version

Developer: Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD) (21.12.2017 In-App purchase for 1.99 EUR) ***** 5 stars
Compatibility: Requires iOS 8.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Language: German
Was previously offered for free. Unfortunately, the MeteoGroup Germany GmbH had rather sought lawyers instead of software developers to weaken the competition. The DWD lost the case in court and may no longer offer its app as a full version for free. Conclusion: many people are disappointed with the business practices of MeteoGroup Deutschland GmbH and are now even more in solidarity with the DWD their warning weather app!
