karl_photoNow that you’ve updated your iPhone to the latest version of iOS that Cupertino has spawned, you’ll be looking for apps that have been built to take full advantage of all the new shiny features.

So here’s a couple of Irish built apps to start you off filling all those empty screens.

Event Post

Event Post by Keven McCafferty is an app to help you remember when you last did all those dull things you just don’t want to be bothered remembering.

A small form lets you set up an irregular but reoccurring event (like buying heating oil) and simply record when it happens so you can remember far more important things like who’s round it is next time you’re in the pub with your mates.

Available on iTunes for 89c

Goal Streaks


It takes about 66 days to form a new habit and Goal Streaks by Peer Assembly aims to help you along the way by gently reminding you how you’re doing.

It’s quick and flexible to add in new targets. There’s a lot of joy to be had from ticking things off and seeing a streak build up (or is that just me?).

Available on iTunes for €3.59

We’ve talked about the guys from Soundwave a few times before. They are, as far as we can tell, the only Irish app to have been featured by Apple in their “Designed for iOS 7” section. This is on top of getting selected as an Editor’s Choice on the App Store. They’re great ambassadors for the capability of the IRish tech scene.

They’ve rebuilt the interface from scratch to take full advantage of the new look and feel of iOS and it’s already getting plaudits from the tech press.

Available on iTunes for free (there’s also the an Android version)

(The Broadsheet app will be updated soonish)
