Hi all. So as I type this from my galaxy note 4 I have plans to head back to ios with a purchase of the new 6s+. It's been 4 years and I want to join all my friends and family with I message and facetime. I've been watching jailbreak tweaks that clearly make me giddy enough to make my phone android feeling. With that said:

Any apps that any of you previous android users now use on ios that are must have? I've been reading lots of lock screen widget articles etc. Just curious about your input. Thanks!!

Welcome back to iOS, oh, maybe not. Because you're going the jailbreak route. You're going to invest in one of the finest pieces of mobile hardware, and rip out the essence of its being to ease the pain of leaving the beautiful world of Android. It's like supplanting a Fiat engine into a Ferrari. To some, it's an unspeakable act.

Your new 6s+ will be ever so much more vulnerable to the increasing hack attacks that plague our world. You will incur countless 'issues' with various apps. You will need to come back to this forum asking for input on how to deal with these. All in the name of not losing that wondrous feeling presented by that device you now own. If that's the case, just go ahead and buy the Note 5. I hear the cameras great, the processor is fast, and the styling looks almost as good as the iPhone. Just remember to insert the stylus in the 'correct' fashion.

Look, either go ALL IN on a product or don't go at all. Otherwise, welcome aboard.

Rant OFF.

Well I think with the high number of apps in both apps stores, and iOS and Android being the top mobile OS's, if there's an app you use on Android there's a good chance it's on iOS. So I'm not sure about any must haves, also iOS does support third party keyboards now, so you don't have to use Apple's stock keyboard. On another note, jailbreaking is not as popular as it once was, with the newer iOS updates Apple has taken into account a lot of the things people used to jailbreak for.

Much has changed in 4 years. The regular App Store apps are wonderful. They've gotten much better and do so much. I do photoshop on my iPhone 5. I've had no desire to jailbreak. I get all I need without it. Before you jailbreak, check it all out. Take your interests and find the best apps to match. Check out the widget apps like Launcher and music Launcher. Great camera apps like Camera+ and ProCamera 8 +HDR. The games are out of this world. Other apps I use.

I'm still looking for a decent replacement to WiFi Analyzer. Haven't seen anything on iOS that comes close.

Still using Google Plus, Hangouts, Docs, Keep, Drive but I replaced Google Play Music by Apple Music, for a better integration with my iPhone =)
