The iPad is on its second generation and the iPhone is on its fourth, resulting in thousands and thousands of apps of all types to download. For those that own both devices, the slight differences between the two systems can be annoying. Some apps only run on iPad and some only on iPhone. Others exist on both systems but require separate downloads.

Today we’ve got a collection of some of the best universal apps in the App Store. By “universal”, we mean that these apps will run simultaneously on your iPhone and iPad. Many of them even offer free online syncing so that your data is always the same no matter which device you’re on. Enjoy the list below and be sure to check out our sister site iPad.AppStorm for more great iPad apps!


An iPhone can be a powerful memory aid — jot down a note or a phone number without hunting for paper and a pen, or take a quick picture of anything you’d like to remember, from bus schedules to business cards. Sometimes, however, we lose track of the context of the many pictures on our phones, I still can’t remember the address of the apartment building I took a photo of last month.

Notica allows you to easily add context and style to your iPhone photos, including date, location, notes and filter effects. Let’s take a look at how Notica promises to make your memories more informative and stylish.

So where is it? Is this another mini-iPhone incident where rumor sites are just leading us along without any solid leads that it’s actually going to find out? Let’s explore.

Photography-related apps make up a sizable portion of the App Store. With these fun and useful tools you can build panoramas, apply vintage effects, create 3D images, and more. Many of the apps, such as Camera+ seek to not only complement the default camera app’s features but replace them completely with a much more fully featured utility.

Our poll question today asks how often you use the default camera app that comes built into your phone as opposed to a third party solution. Do you use exclusively third party apps or do you like to stick to the default utility and then import the resulting images into other applications?

Vote in the poll and leave a comment below telling us your typical photography workflow on the iPhone.
