In pictures: 15 must-have iOS apps you can't get on any other platform

Shortly after obtaining a new iPhone 5S,'s Al Sacco, an unabashed BlackBerry user and Android loyalist, set out to find the best iOS apps that aren't available for other mobile platforms. He came with up these 15 must-have iPhone, iPad and iPod touch downloads.

The Eck App (iPhone, iPad and iPod touch) Come on, who doesn't want to learn more about—and even make themselves look like—MLB legend, Hall of Famer and skilled baseball commentator Dennis Eckersly? I gotta have it!

The Eck App gives you access to an "Eckipedia" of Eckersly terms; a What the Eck section to test your knowledge of Eckisms, and an Eck Yourself feature to superimpose Eck "moss" on people, pets, whatever, in your photos.

OK, it might not be a "must have" app for everyone, and some people I showed it to didn't find the software as amusing as I do. But to that I say: Go Eck Yourself.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
