    Hi all,

    I am a professional photographer and have the iPhone 6 plus 64Gb. The thing is I can't help thinking that I'm not exactly using it to the best of its ability.
    I'm mainly using it for emails, texts and calls as well as managing my Facebook and Twitter accounts. That is about it.

    My question is, what other cool stuff can I do with this fantastic computer in my hand? Surely it's got to be capable of more than this to help me in my daily life. Thing is I'm not sure what or how.

    Suggestions please on apps and stuff that might make life easier please.

    Oh I do use it for calendar and I have a MBP that I sync contacts and calendar through iCloud.

    Have you seen apps such as Camera+ and ProCam2 that let you have manual controls over the iPhone's camera? You can also try apps that let you edit your pictures. That is one way you could use the iPhone to the best of its ability.

    The best thing to do is probably to browse the App Store, see if you find something you like

    Whilst the iPhone won't replace a dedicated DSLR any time soon I've yielded some great results from the iSight Camera and a plethora of apps; the stock Weather app helps when I want to make the most of the 'golden' hours for shooting pictures (and making sure I don't get drenched!)

    Nice photos! Wouldn't be surprised if a hobbit lived in that house. OP, you could also use your phone for sleep tracking, streaming music, tracking your finances, measuring BP and heart rate, purchasing with Apple Pay, remote surveillance, accessing your pc away from home, dictating notes, etc etc. But there's no point in downloading a ton of apps if you don't find them useful.

    Thanks all.
    I'll have a look into apps to do some of the stuff mentioned. I'm planning on using Apple pay when it launches in the UK next month.
    Will also look into camera apps.

    how do I do the remote access of my mac and the sleep tracking?
