By , Aug 10, 2013

iOS 7 (App Store teaser 002)Earlier this week, Apple launched the fifth beta for iOS 7. Time ticks by and we get closer and closer to the public launch of iOS’ biggest design change in six years.

To get you ready for the new look, we’ve got a list of apps that will nicely compliment Apple’s new mobile operating system…

We’ve all seen the pictures of Apple’s newly designed Calendar app in iOS 7. This app practically matches it perfectly. Not only will your daily events be elegantly displayed with the new look, but you can sync it with the popular GTD app Any.DO. This app is available for free.

Pocket

Read It Later has been a popular news aggregate for a long time now. The app’s creator has revamped, reimagined, and redesigned it so many times that it looks completely different and even has a new name. However, the convenience of having articles, videos, and more available whenever you want it is still the same. This app is available for free.

Twitterrific

Twitter was the biggest thing in design when it launched in 2006. Seven years later and it really hasn’t changed all that much. Thanks to third-party Twitter clients like this, we can see our tweets in a whole new way. This app is available for $2.99.

Dots

Who would have thought that matching a couple of dots would make you feel so good? If you are looking for a game that is simple and looks like it belongs in a candy store, you won’t be disappointed with this casual matching game. This game is available for free.

Stickets

This minimalistic matching game is deceivingly difficult. Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you can keep the game board clear. You can, however, let your mind relax as you fail over and over again. The puzzles look that good. This game is available for $2.99.

Yahoo Weather

Yahoo was one of the early adopters of the minimalist design. This weather app made waves for looking good and producing accurate results with images right from your nearby locations. It may not be a heavy weather forecaster, but its got it where it counts. This app is available for free.

Digg

What’s black and white and read all over? Yeah, the joke is old. But Digg’s reader is not. Subscribe to your favorite blogs, save stories for reading later, and automatically download specific posts. You’ll never read Internet news the same again. This app is available for free.

Feedly

Google Reader is gone, but Feedly has managed to seamlessly take its place as the most popular RSS feed reader. If you were smart enough to sign up before July 1, you could import your Google Reader account. Even without that feature, you can still follow your favorite blogs with little effort. This app is available for free.

DataMan Next

Are you tired of constantly tracking your data usage, only to find out you’ve passed your limit and will have to stay on Wi-Fi until the end of the month? If you want a better way to keep track of cellular usage, set alerts to keep you on pace, and compare previous months, you’ll be happy with DataMan Next. This app is available for $0.99.

With hundreds of thousands of apps in the App Store, these 15 apps obviously aren’t your only options, but they are some of our favorites that we use on a daily basis.

What are some apps you use that you think already look ready for iOS 7? Make sure to share your favorites in the comment section.

  • RarestName

    They’ll look great on iOS 6 also :/

    • sivkai

      Precisely. A more appropriate title would be “15 apps that match the look and feel of iOS 7″. Of course, that doesn’t sound as catchy :p

  • Mohammed Sahib

    Great list. Can you make a list for the iPad please?

    • ✪ aidan harris ✪

      I don’t think there’s enough apps to warrant the post. Although this may be partly down to the fact that iOS 7 on the iPad in its current form is extremely buggy. The word “buggy” is just too kind a word to describe how bad it is in terms of performance although this is understandable since the software is in beta and although we’re on beta 5 the iPad didn’t get a beta 1 so really it’s only the fourth beta…

      • Mohammed Sahib

        I run iOS 7 on my iPad 2. It has a lot of bugs, as you said, but beta 5’s performance is actually good. This could be partly due to the removal or tweaking of the transparency in control and notification centres.

      • ✪ aidan harris ✪

        “This could be partly due to the removal or tweaking of the transparency in control and notification centres.”

        That and the fact that there’s no lock & unlock sound, setting wallpapers is slow / buggy and occasionally outputted sound is completely distorted. But I’m sure Apple is aware of the issues and actively fixing them…

      • mehrab

        Nothing of that short on my ipad mini atleast on beta 5 that is. I have transparency too always had it on the mini aince beta 1

  • Leksoon

    It would be cool if you guys made an “Wallpapers that look great on iOS 7″, please!

  • 5ingularity

    How about Evomail? It looks pretty awesome, its UI is very clean.

  • 天才蒙蒙亮

    sleepy

  • SimonReidy

    The alarm clock app, “Rise” looks great on iOS7.

    Try NewsFeed a fantastic feedly client

  • Apanizo2

    Chain RXN

  • Question

    Mailbox is sweet but im on iOS 7 and the icon looks a bit weird standing out when all the icons are flat.

  • Just Saying

    apple

  • leart za jmi

    every apps that don’t have a good or dont have design at all, will look good on ios 7.
    i don’t get it empty design is good now :)

  • sjtod

    iRealSMS (jailbreak) in its latest update blends in perfectly with iOS 7.

  • fasih

    Too many ‘Calendar’ and ‘To do’ apps in App Store…. Please someone develop an app to remind us to use these apps!! :-)

  • Mike

    So disappointed with the look of IOS 7. Definitely looks like it was design for kids. IOS 6 looks way more professional. Having a white iPhone and having IOS 7 on it. Looks like a girl theme to me now.

  • Mikhaell

    xPence Plus money manager looks great on iOS 7 too

  • http://www.news-world.us/ arslion

    You show some of the apps on iOS 6, see the status bar.

  • @dongiuj

    Seems to be a lot of white and bright colours. Maybe a tax on the battery?

  • GuyBey0ndC00L

    Feedly is the best, it looks and already feels like iOS 7. Wish Apple would look at the icons in this app and apply that to iOS 7

  • Marina Boykis

    The finance app BillGuard also looks great in iOS 7

  • iosLover

    HDD and HipsterBox looks great also.

    • iosLover

      Here’s icons ;)

  • Michael Hulet

    I was really impressed with Clone Camera Pro’s design and functionality. I’m running iOS 7 and CCP looks amazing on it

  • http://lucaskunert.com/ Lucas Kunert

    You forgot Aero. :)

  • Asem abo aqel

    which one is better ios6 or 7

  • Lawzi

    CARROT should be on this list. It looks very iOS 7 ready, right down to the icon! (Great reminders app as well. :P)

  • Ashita

    should check this app too.
