20 of the best apps for iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus

Got a shiny new Apple smartphone? Then you'll want to fill it with these 20 essential apps

So you’ve got your new iPhone 6s or 6s Plus. It’s got a big screen, more raw power than you can shake a stick at, and all of iOS 9’s goodies awaiting your digits. Great!

But unless you’ve got the right apps, you can’t take full advantage of all this lovely technology.

We’ve therefore scoured the App Store to find 20 of the best. You can thank us later.

1. Dropbox (S$free)

You might question Dropbox being in this list. But while it’s admittedly not the most exciting app in the world, the cloud file-manager is a really great way to play with some of your iPhone’s new toys, entirely for free.

3D Touch on the Home screen icon gives you Quick Actions to search, upload a photo, view offline files, or get at your most recently edited document. Within the app, Peek and Pop gestures, respectively, offer fast previews and quick subsequent access to files.

2. Instagram (S$free)

Much like Dropbox, Instagram’s a good bet for playing around with 3D Touch. Quick Actions let you quickly get to direct messages and new activity, make a new post, or start a search.

Within the app, Peek proves excellent for viewing photos within feeds, but without opening new pages. This kind of browsing becomes second-nature so quickly that you’ll feel lost on a device without it.

Elegance is also the watchword of Twitterrific 5. While Tweetbot is awesomely powerful, Twitterrific has an unparalleled sense of design, with beautiful themes, typography and a lightness of touch that works perfectly with Apple’s larger iPhones. That’s not to say it’s lacking in features, though: Twitterrific has live streaming, list management, gestural controls, filtering and muting, timeline sync, and more. It’s also a free download, with some affordable IAP available to those who want push notifications and no adverts.
