    My iPhone has become a valuable resource when I need to find my train times, check the weather, read the news and more.
    Since the new year started, the App Store has grown more crowded with more options to choose from so how do you make a decision on what you need? I've selected 11 apps that I've bee using on a daily basis.
    When you want to refresh your iPhone and add new applications, here are the 11 I recommend.Hop makes it easier to deal with the clutter of emails in my inbox.
    Hop has made it so much easier for me to answer emails in my inbox. It works for Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, and iCloud. Email chains become chat threads that let you quickly type a response. You can even see if someone is immediately writing you back. The app lets you manipulate notifications so you'll only be alerted for new messages that you think are important. Its so much better than the pre-installed iPhone app.
    Price: Free
    Available: iOS
    I rarely forget things thanks to Evernote.
    Evernote always helps me get stuff done especially since I can sync my to-do lists across my phone and laptop. Although you can perform traditional tasks like set reminders and write individual to-do lists, I'm a big fan of the audio notes feature. Its much easier to remember you have to finish projects when your own voice is reminding you of that.
    Price: Free
    Available: iOS, Android, WindowsBlackberry and Kindle.
    HBO Go is the best TV streaming app available.
    Although it had a brief hiccup during the 'True Detective' finale, I still think HBO Go is the best streaming app out there. A cable subscription is needed to let you binge watch the network's old classics like 'The Wire'  or view a slew of movies as well. By saving shows and films to the app's watch-list feature, you can access them at anytime and never worry about scheduling a recording on your DVR.

    Facebook Messenger is a cheaper way to text your friends
    I prefer using Facebook Messenger instead of my iPhone's messaging app when I want to talk to my friends. The app is equipped with a few features that make it easier to make plans. Hosting group chats helps everyone stay on the same page when deciding to meet up for the weekend while posting your location in a chat thread helps you find someone quickly in a crowded area.
    Price: Free
    Available: iOS, Android, Blackberry and Windows.
