Yes, it does everything. Yes, it’s the most popular paid iTunes app in several countries. And after using it for ten minutes, given the low price and the sheer magnitude of apps available in it, I can see why.
Quite simply, this app saves you money by being an app store unto itself (but for only the single price of $.99). It has sub-apps within the app that fulfill the function of full apps available elsewhere. It has a battery life indicator (like myBatteryLife, available in the App Store for $.99), a period calendar (such as iPeriod, available in the App Store for $1.99), a tip calculator (like the myriad of $.99 apps available in the App Store) and many others. It even has access to web apps like Google books (if a WiFi or data connection is available).
Granted, the apps developed for AppBox Pro are simple, but that’s the beauty of it. Like the icon of the app indicates, it is the Swiss Army Knife of the iPhone or iPod Touch.
Granted, it is kind of annoying to have to open up one app to open another, but it’s nice to have all this stuff in one place.
While the app isn’t perfect, it’s vast array of offerings makes it completely worth every penny. That sort of variety takes time to program and isn’t easy, and kudos to the developers of AppBox Pro for accomplishing it.
Pros: Simple and flexible. Many apps to choose from.
Cons: Annoying to have to open one app to get to another.
