There are many apps out there for the iPhone, with user favorites such social media apps like Facebook and Twitter leading the way. However, there are many out there that are just as useful and amazing as the aforementioned apps but are virtually unknown. If you’ve always wanted to fill your iPhone with useful apps but are too busy to browse the plethora of apps available at the App Store, here are some of the best ones that seem to never make “the best of” lists but bring great functionality to your smartgadget.
Do you view your utility bills via your trusty smartphone? If you do, you’ll love FileThis.

When you travel to a non-English speaking country, don’t you just hate it when you can’t easily ask a trivial question like where the toilet is? SitorSquat is the world’s most convenient app for locating nearby toilets. Currently, the app has over 65,000 registered toilets worldwide and the database is still growing thanks to a dedicated community that helps update SitOrSquat regularly.
Sometimes, learning how to do a certain task can be difficult if you just read text instructions. With SnapGuide, however, DIY guides are made easy. The app is filled with how-to guides for everything from art to food, and each is illustrated with detailed steps. It’s a great app to have around at all times, especially if you’re a bit of a DIY fan. Users can create guides of their own to share with the community.
Smartphones are quite possibly the fastest growing industry in the world, and it isn’t too surprising given the scope of people who use them now. According to the company that manages the entertainment site Pocket Fruity, mobile sales are expected to surpass $40 billion in 2015 so we will probably see more apps in the future that revolutionize the way we see things in every part of our lives.

Baylis Father’s Day Little Luxury
At the weekend we went to Food Gusto at Ashby-de-la-Zouch.The venue was the town’s historic Bath Grounds and there was a good crowd in attendance. Entrance was £1 per over 15 year old. There was quite a selection of stalls to browse around, some of whom were familiar from the regular farmers’ markets held in Ashby, but others were new to the mix.
I loved that there was a wide choice of stalls and produce on offer, often with more than one type of each stall. So you could buy picture perfect cup cakes if that’s your thing or more rustic (more generous) slices and buns. Don’t those Battenburg slices look amazing?
There was a fabulous looking deli store from North’s, the resident purveyor of all things baked in Ashby. They had a lovely range of savoury and sweet treats to tempt you.
There were a wide range of pies from Brocklebys,. We tried a couple of these and found the Chicken one a little bland, but Summer Isle Salmon Pie was very tasty. One thing that was missing was a proper butcher’s stall. There was one stand selling burgers and sausages which they were cooking and you could buy some sausages to take home, but there wasn’t a traditional butchers, which was a shame given the wide range of produce available.
As well as food (and drink) stands that you’d expect, there were a number of community stands too, so there was something there for all the family. Luckily we won a bottle of wine on one stall, as you can imagine we came home pleased. There were even treats to be had for the family pooch with The Doggy Cookie Company on hand.
