So you don’t have to sort through the marketplace by yourself, here’s a look at some of the best free iPhone apps of 2019.
Starting to work out after a long period of relative inactivity can be a daunting task. It’s made that much more daunting by the fact that there is so much information out there. Which routine should you choose?
321Fit simplifies the entire process. Through a minimalistic design, it tells you exactly what workouts to do and for how long. It’s possible to customize everything to your liking, but you also aren’t required to do so.

Edison Mail helps alleviate some of the burden of managing your emails. Not only does it allow you to combine your email accounts, but if offers you ways to expedite many common email processes.
Edison Mail is quickly becoming the go-to favorite free iPhone apps on the market. Considering the level of competition there is for that award, that’s really saying something.
Animated GIFs are an oddly simply pleasure of the internet age. They’ve become a language unto themselves. We make them, we talk about them, and, most importantly, we share them.
GIFwrapped offers one of the most complete collections of noteworthy GIFs that you’ll find in any app. It greatly expands the amount of GIFs available on your phone, and it allows you to easily share them across a variety of mediums.
This is just one of those simple apps that just makes your life a little more amusing.
You need to read more online articles. We’re obviously biased on that subject, but it’s the truth. The problem is that there are times when you just don’t have the time to really dive into a longer piece.
Instapaper offers a solution to that problem. It allows you to easily save your favorite articles and view them offline at your earliest convenience. Even better, it lets you easily modify the articles so that they’re that much simpler to read on your mobile device.
This is quickly becoming one of the most essential and recommended free iPhone apps. It’s just that good.
Many of the best mobile games offer something that just doesn’t necessarily work on other devices. Often times, that means a simpler experience based around a fundamentally enjoyable gameplay concept.
Knight Brawl is a tremendous example of that idea. It’s all about battling your way through various environments as different types of warriors. The touch controls are incredibly simply, but they’re perfect for participating in wacky, enjoyable battles and making progress in this surprisingly bountiful game.
If you like mobile action games,you need to check out Knight Brawl.
Libraries are a vital public resource that offer so much more than books. The problem with libraries is that visiting one can feel more like a burden in this digital age.
Libby takes the library experience and brings it to your phone. It grants you access to thousands of eBooks and audiobooks offered by the public library system. That may sound too good to be true, but honestly, it really does just digitizes the library experience.
Every book fan with an iPhone needs to download Libby if they haven’t already. It’s so good that it should be installed on every iPhone.
Designing and decorating your home can be a lot of fun, but it can also be a logistical nightmare. How are you supposed to know what everything is really going to look like?
Magicplan is the easiest answer to that question. By utilizing 2D and 3D maps of your home, it lets you almost perfect plan any renovation. While its database may not be perfect, you’d be amazed how much you can accomplish using this technology.
There’s really no reason not to download this app if you’re considering almost any level of home decoration or remodeling.
One of the most popular concepts of 2019 was screen time. Basically, companies began to offer more ways for you to monitor and control how much time you spend on your phone. Even Apple got in on the game with their official app.
However, few free iPhone apps offer quite as many screen time features as Moment. It not only monitors how much time you spend on your phone, but it offers ways to help you break your bad habits. That’s especially useful for anyone who may feel they don’t know how to stop using their phone so much.
Moment may not be for everyone, but it might just be the best app for you.
The camera on your phone is arguably more important than the phone itself. Cameras have become so important to modern devices that Apple has started to base their iPhone presentations around them.
Retrica is one of those great little free iPhone apps that makes your camera that much better. It offers one of the best collections of filters on the modern app marketplace. These filters not only help you enhance photos but make them infinitely more shareable.
Retrica is must-have free iPhone app for anyone who likes to enhance their photos and showcase a little more style.
There are many apps out there that let you create and modify music from your iPhone. While that’s basically what Seaquence offers, it also does things a little bit…differently.
Basically, Sequence is a free iPhone app that gamifies the music mod process. It allows you to create compositions if that’s what you want, but it’s colorful visuals and deep tools are really there to help you enjoy the process of music creation.
Whether or not you consider yourself to be a musician, you can almost certainly find a way to entertain yourself with this brilliant app.
The Battle of Polytopia
There’s hardly a shortage of great free games for iPhone. Even still, 2019 greatly expanded the existing library of free titles for those who don’t want to subscribe to Apple Arcade.
The Battle of Polytopia is one of the best of those free games. It’s a turn-based strategy adventure that sees you expand your mobile empire. We’ve seen that concept in countless PC games, but we’ve rarely seen it done so well on a mobile platform.
This is one of those great iPhone games that demands little time but can be played for hours. It comes highly recommended for any strategy fans out there.
It takes a lot to break into the modern social media marketplace.With so many options out there, you need something really special in order to make even a noticeable dent.
It really should say something, then, that TikTok became one of 2019’s most talked about apps. Essentially, TikTok revives the Vine concept by offering users a space to make short (often funny) videos. It’s a little more elaborate than Vine, but TikTok is still responsible for some of the best content on the internet.
If you’re not already a part of the TikTok phenomenon, it’s definitely time to join.
Twitter is a great social media platform, but it’s hardly a perfect one. From unnecessary tweets filling your feed to poor scheduling options, there are a lot of things that Twitter could do better.
Twitterrific adds some of Twitter’s most desired features to the platform. From enhanced mobile browsing to customized themes, Twitterrific helps you turn Twitter into exactly what you want it (or need it) to be.
While we highly recommend this app for professional Twitter users, you’d be amazed how much its tools improve even the casual viewing experience.
Your email address is still your passport to the internet in most cases. So many sites and services require you to provide a valid email address. While it’s a mostly harmless practice, it does mean you often end up with some unwanted emails in your inbox.
That’s where Unroll.Me comes into play. Basically, it offers you a way to quickly unsubscribe from any unwanted emails you may currently be subscribed to. It’s certainly better than the manual process, but what really impresses us is the app’s ability to let you manage the emails you still do want to receive.
While this feature should honestly be standard in most email services, the fact that it’s not means that should absolutely download Unroll.Me.
Sometimes, an app or service comes along that changes the way we speak. For instance, you don’t search online for something, you Google it.
Waze is quickly becoming the default way to talk about using your device to navigate the world. This navigation tool not only offers you directions for when you’re on the road, but it allows you to easily access content like podcasts. Its user-generated data even alerts you to nearby cops, accidents, and other real-time information.
It’s hard to imagine what drivers did before Waze, but thankfully, you no longer have to.
