The App Store is home to all the apps big and small, ranging from everyday reminders to novelty walkie-talkie apps, it has got it all. If you’ve been wondering about apps that are truly unique and not a lot of people know about, we’ll you’re on the right page. I have the list of 10 cool apps for iPhone that no one told you about. Let’s check those out.
Cool Apps for iPhone
The clubhouse is that app on the block that’s been making waves in social media. It’s an invite-only app that uses audio as the primary mode of communication. Think of it as an interactive podcast where other people can spontaneously join your conversations and there are all sorts of categories to pique your interest. If not, you can use it to have weekend hangout sessions with your friends and family.

2. Spotted by Locals
This app is truly a city guide you need when visiting a new place. Spotted by Locals is run by the community and the local people who recommend places that are actually worth visiting. You get access to more than 80+ cities from around the world including the most popular ones like Barcelona, Paris, New York, London, etc. The app is free to download but you need to unlock every city’s guide with a one-time payment of $3.99 which seems reasonable as actual human labor goes into producing a high-quality guide.
It’s a cool travel app for iPhone users.

Every iPhone comes with an inbuilt vibrating motor, also known as the Taptic Engine to offer haptic and vibrational feedback.

The app has 12 different vibration modes and three different speed settings. You can get this app for free and unlocking everything would cost you $1.99/mo.

If you live in the US and go out for a drink or a sports bar, you’d always find a muted TV with programs running. Tunity lets you scan the TV and stream the audio right from the iPhone. Once the channel is identified, the app automatically syncs time, program, and also saves channel for later streaming. Tunity is free to use and ad-supported which you can disable by paying premium.

6. Baby Monitor TEDDY
If you have small kids in your house that you need to supervise from a distance, this baby monitor is the perfect companion. You just need an old iPhone/iPad to act as the video camera and transmit the feed over Wi-Fi. You need to set up the app on both devices once and it’s done. After that, get live feeds of your kids from the other room.
To prevent the iPad/iPhone from powering down, make sure to attach the power cord and keep the device charging. The app is completely free.

The app creates an audio narrative with upbeat soundtracks to make the entire run incredibly fun.
