Top 8 | Most Beautiful Apps for iPad

We here at Top 8 regularly go weak at the knees for a well designed interface, and perhaps even moreso when you’re considering a tablet like Apple’s iPad with its larger screen. Google’s Material Design premise is responsible for some excellent looking UIs out there, and it’s great to see some kind of consistency on this front. There are some great looking apps out there however that don’t practice the principals of Material Design, many of which we will touch on below. Of course, a list such as this one featuring the “most beautiful apps” on any given device will always be subjective, so feel free to agree and disagree as much as you like! Check out our picks below and feel free to suggest your own favorites in the comments section at the end of each page. This way we will have more material to check out when revisiting the subject at a later date. We might even edit the article to include some of your picks, if they’re up to scratch!

8. Over ($3.99)


I will often find myself recommending apps to friends, and one particular non-category that seems to come up time and time again is to do with apps that embrace artistic creativity rather than hinder it. There are actually few of these out there; apps that provide artistic inspiration are few and far between, though the likes of Pinterest and Tumblr are perhaps your best bet. But what about budding designers that are looking for an app that will help them express themselves? Well, Over is worth checking out: it allows you to take any photo stored on your device and then apply filters to it, add text or doodles and then share your creations across social media. While a lot of the text and things you see are preset options, it’s still a nice app to check out.  – Download from iTunes

7. Taasky ($1.99)


There are so many task management apps and to do list apps out there these days that it’s often difficult to pick the right app for you. There are one or two great looking apps, too, but our pick for the most beautiful of those would probably be Taasky; at least in terms of its interface and overall design. The app is quite minimalistic when compared to other task management apps that offer a similar array of features, but it is also quite colorful. The one thing it has over other similar apps, aside from the excellent design is the ability to arrange tasks in terms of importance and then attack them accordingly. – Download from iTunes



Most of us will have at some point used the in built alarm on our iOS device, but there are actually a few third party wake up apps out there worth checking out. One of these is the UNIQLO Wake Up app, which is an alarm app with a difference. Not only does it play a tune based on the current weather outside, but it also boasts a stunning minimalist interface that is very easy to navigate – especially when you’re half asleep. I tried using this app a year or so ago and haven’t looked back since – it also looks great, which is a bonus. – Download from iTunes

5. Yummly (Free)

Yummly is not the kind of app you want to be using if you are in any way hungry; it is a recipe sharing app like many others out there, though in this case with an emphasis on the look and the flavor with full screen photographs dominating its beautifully designed interface. There are millions of different categories, and you can easily filter the stuff that is trending right now, or even look at things that fulfil certain dietary preferences or whatever. It’s a useful app to own, and looks great, too. – Download from iTunes
