We constantly share cool new iOS and Android apps here on BGR in an effort to help readers get the most out of their smartphones and tablets. These apps often serve very specific purposes and while they’re always great to have on your device, they’re often not what you might consider to be essential apps. So now it’s time to take a look at a quick list of 10 apps that new iPhone users especially should check out, because they might just become some of the most used apps on your phone.

DON’T MISS: This cool new free app brings Apple Pay where it has never gone before

It might not be as fun as our lists of paid iPhone and iPad apps that go on sale for free (there are a few nifty ones in today’s list), but Forbes contributor Jay McGregor recently put together a nice list of 10 essential apps he believes every iPhone 6 user should install right away.

Of course, these apps aren’t just for the iPhone 6, but McGregor is right that there are tons of new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus owners out there right now. Apple undoubtedly just had a monster holiday quarter, so there are plenty of people out there with new iPhones just waiting to be filled with great apps.

McGregor has a few definite staples on his list, including Google Translate, which recently got a huge update. He also noted a few more really good apps you might not currently use, such as Workflow, SwiftKey and 1Password.

For the full list and details about why each app is so important, follow the link down in our source section.
