Don’t you wish you had a trusty pal to tell you all about the coolest free apps, the best Apple news, and answer every question about your iDevice, 24 hours a day? A friend who really caters to your personal tastes? AppAdvice IS that friend: Providing the best iOS news, tips, & apps — and we’ll never charge you a dime! Heck, we’re you’re iOS BFF!

The new, fully redesigned, reimagined, customized AppAdvice app features a dedicated team of over 20 iOS journalists who’ve been covering apps since 2008. That means we’ve got the long-term insight that both beginners and power users need to get the most out of their iPhones, iPads, Apple Watches, and Apple TVs.

***Cool Feature Alert: Every time we talk about an app in an article, instead of static screenshots, we’ll be using inline videos showing the app in action. We call these new videos “AppPlays.” AppPlays don’t interrupt your experience with an obtrusive, content-blocking video, however. Instead, they fit in nicely alongside that content, efficiently auto-playing as you scroll past and making it really clear if the app in question is up your alley or not.***

Nice redesign of an informative app! However...

Thhis newly redesigned app – which is absoutely lovely in its user interface – is consuming my iPhone 6S+ battery at an alarming rate. Since there are no settings for running in the background, and the battery indicator only mentions screen time, I don't know why the installation of this app caused my battery to go from 85% to 31% in 30 minutes. But it is listed in the battery settings as being the top battery hog over the past 7 days – even though I'd only installed it 30 minutes earlier. I hope they're able to fix this soon, as it IS a really great redesign of truly useful information.

Great App - well not so much now...

This is one of three apps that are my 'must haves'. (Sometimes I 'save up' and won't read for several days so I can spend some leisure time looking over a weeks worth of news). The variety of what they cover is great. Something for everyone. I love being able to link from the app advice news/reviews to the App Store and will often download during my reading. I appreciate that they keep one or two weeks content on board. As I say I sometimes save up and then spend a happy hour or so perusing. No complaints.

This is an update to my previous review. While many reviewers seem to like the new interface I find it very schizophrenic and disorganized. Much less user-friendly. The previous interface was easy to scroll through to review various articles etc. in addition you can simply drop down to find various guides and categories of apps. Now you have to hunt to find anything specific that you're looking for. This is gone from one of my three must haves to 'hardly using anymore'.

Epic! Far more than apps. Packed with custom useful info.

Incredible app! I'm usually not interested in Apple info things beyond free apps, but if you own any Apple devices this will interest you. You'll find real and concise info to get the most from or for your all Apple devices with apps, accessories, peripherals, security info, iOS tips, etc. There's a wide range of topics - on point, informative, and not über-geek. I actually end up browsing for extended periods of time.

It's customizable by Apple product and topic. Stellar! I'm not interested in games. Usually these apps are dominated by games.

Complain to the developers via the app! Not the review - they can't respond here.
