This Week’s Must-Have iOS Apps: Napster, VLC, GV Mobile+ & More!



This week’s must-have iOS apps include Napster’s new music streaming application that provides access to over 10 million of songs on your iOS device, Google Voice calling with GV Mobile+, and a media player that supports pretty much every codec out there!

Check out a few of our favorite apps from the past week after the break!

Napster(Free) iPhone – Music

Stream over 10 million songs to your iPhone from $10 a month with the new Napster music app. Save songs, albums and playlists to your device to listen to while you’re offline, get music recommendations based on your favorites and check out the Billboard charts from all the way back to 1955. A feature-rich application that’s worth the subscription. Instant access to new releases and your old favorites!

VLC Media Player(Free) iPad – Entertainment

VLC is an open-source media player that supports pretty much every video codec there is, which means you won’t have to convert all of your movies before watching them on your iPad. It’s incredibly simple to use, and you can add files easily through the iTunes File Sharing feature. It’s a must-have for anyone who watches videos on the move, and it’s a free download, so you have nothing to lose if you don’t like it.

GV Mobile+($2.99) iPhone – Productivity

One of the first Google Voice applications available in the App Store, and certainly the best. GV Mobile+ allows you to use your Google Voice account on your iPhone to call, send & receive SMS, access your Google contacts, and play your voicemails. It has a list of great features, and is the best designed Google Voice application in the App Store yet.

NotifyMe 2 Control Centre($9.99) iPad – Productivity

NotifyMe Control Centre is a powerful task management application that lets you create, categorize and manage your to-dos and tasks efficiently and effectively. It features notifications to remind you of things that are due, and you can sync to the NotifyMeCloud to back up your tasks with a free account. There’s support for multiple user accounts, so you can manage your whole family’s tasks as well as your own. It’s beautifully designed and it has some great features. Use it on its own on your iPad, or in conjunction with NotifyMe 2 for iPhone to keep on top of your tasks wherever you are.
