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

Shortly after obtaining a new iPhone 5S, CIO.com'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 Best iOS Exclusive Apps I recently bought an iPhone 5S. It was a big move for me, because I'm kind of a BlackBerry loyalist and a long-time Android user. It's been years since I last carried an iPhone. But as a journalist covering mobile devices, it was time to familiarize myself once again with iOS and the iPhone.

The first thing I did when I got my iPhone was seek out quality apps I can't get on any other platform. After all, that's the advantage cited most often when people compare iOS to other mobile software.

After digging through the App Store and querying followers on social networks, I came up with the following 15 iOS apps, all of which continue to impress me.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
