    1. One reason why the Apple iPhone topped sales and popularity in the mobile phone segment was because of the many different apps and programs that made life easier, less stressful and also more fun and exciting. With hundreds of Apple iPhone apps being created regularly, it can be very tricky trying to decide which ones to install on your phone.

    2. Emojions LTE is looking good, but I wonder if it’s like its Emoji counterparts, it also comes with a mini game for maximum fun? I really wish it does because I am slightly bored of my old Emoji app and its rather repetitive gameplay and graphics!
