Given that there are over 900,000 apps in the App Store, it's hard to narrow that list down to just ten. So here are a few honorable mentions for app categories we haven't mentioned above:
CALCULATOR: PCALC ($10)PCalc has long been a great calculator for the Mac, and an equally great one for iOS. For math nerds and anyone else who needs a bit more than the stock Calculator app offers.
CALENDAR: FANTASTICAL ($5) iOS's first calendar with natural-language processing, Fantastical is a great tool for quickly adding events and viewing your calendar if you want something a little more powerful than Apple's included Calendar app.
DOCUMENTS: GOODREADER ($5) Need to download a .zip archive, PDF, or other odd file to your iPhone? Chances are, GoodReader can handle it. The app supports full PDF notation, downloads from FTP, and more.
WEB: CHROME (FREE) Safari is a fantastic Web browsing tool, but Google's Chrome can be a good alternative if you use the company's browser on your computer. Besides, you never know when you might need a different Web browser.
NOTES: SIMPLENOTE (FREE) If you're looking for a few more features than the included Notes app offers, Simplenote is your app. It offers simplicity, sleek design, automatic iOS and Mac sync, collaboration features, and more.
RADIO: PANDORA (FREE) If iTunes Radio isn't quite doing it for you, Pandora offers a different spin on curated radio, using its Music Genome Project to create stations from artists and songs.
TWITTER CLIENT: TWITTERRIFIC 5 ($3)Twitterrific is an elegantly designed, fun-to-use Twitter client that takes iOS 7's design cues to the next level.
SOCIAL: FACEBOOK (FREE) If you're a Facebook fan, the company's app doesn't get much better. It's been redesigned for iOS 7 and supports almost every feature available on the Web.
FOOD: YELP (FREE) Hungry? Yelp can help you find delicious food in your neighborhood based on recommendations from local users.
VNC: SCREENS ($20) Your iPhone can do a lot, but sometimes it's just not the tool you need for the job. Screens lets you view your home computer's display--no matter where you are--and work remotely with ease.
