I miss the joy and discovery of 3rd-party apps that Apple has since Sherlocked
Source: iMore


When I got my very first iPhone — the iPhone 4S — I was thrilled to finally have a modern smartphone that could do so many cool things. Heck, Siri had just launched with iOS 5 at the time, and it was then when I felt like I finally was holding a device that was a glimpse into the future. Since then, I have been upgrading to new iPhones every couple of years, and it's been amazing to see the growth in functionality in iOS as a platform. Still, I miss the "old days" of iPhone for one big reason — discovery of third-party apps that unlocked capabilities that the iPhone didn't have.

Out of the dark — Flashlight apps

Before iOS 7 launched Control Center and the flashlight toggle button, iPhones couldn't be flashlights without the help of some 3rd-party software. That's right — you had to download an app so that you could see in the dark.

You must think I'm crazy for somewhat wanting to go back to the dark ages of iOS. However, do you remember the first time you discovered a flashlight app? I do.
