At a glance, system monitors might not seem as useful on your iPhone as they are on a desktop computer, but they can pack in a lot of good data. This includes detailed battery life breakdowns, storage space and data speeds. For the average user, our favourite system monitor for the iPhone is Omnistat.

The iPhone doesn't support app launchers in the same way as OS X, but that doesn't mean app developers haven't come up with clever workarounds. Case in point, our pick for the best launcher, Launch Center Pro lets you launch not only apps, but specific actions within apps.

Managing a vast collection of recipes used to be as simple as pulling out a box of index cards. Now things are a little smarter, but that also means they're a bit more complicated. To wrangle all your recipes into a sensible order on your iPhone, we like Paprika.

The iPhone doesn't have a shortage of video editing apps. In fact, there're so many it's almost impossible to choose among them. But when it comes to the right combination of features and usability on the arguably too-tiny-for-video-editing iPhone screen, we like Splice.

Sharing great moments (or just snippets of your life) with friends or loved ones has never been easier, and a new class of live streaming app makes it possible for them to join you in real time. Of those apps, we think Periscope is the best today, and has the most potential for the near future.

While mobile Safari does most of what you'd need from a smartphone web browser, and there are many alternatives that fill in the gaps, we prefer Chrome. Google's browser offers excellent features, synchronisation and simplicity at no cost.

Despite some useful updates to Apple's stock Mail client in iOS 6, that app has lagged somewhat since we picked it as our App Directory selection back in June last year. From the moment Sparrow hit the iPhone, we've loved it more than any other mail client on iOS. Even though feature updates have ceased following its acquisition by Google and development will eventually wind down, Sparrow deserves its due and is our top pick among iOS email clients.

The iPhone's app selection is unparalleled, but it can be frustrating to sift through thousands of options to find the best. For our third annual Lifehacker Pack for iPhone, we're highlighting the apps that help you stay productive, connected, informed and entertained.

The iPhone isn't lacking in data usage trackers, but many of them offer few features or do little to ensure they're tracking your data accurately. We like Data Usage because it helps keep you on top of all the data you're using, alerts you as much or as little as you want, and provides in-depth statistics.
