The iPhone is full of possibilities, but not only through the iOS operating system and Apple's own apps. Also and above all the software offers in the App Store ensure that the smartphone from Cupertino becomes the perfect everyday companion. In this guide I will show you 3 iPhone apps that you (possibly) do not know yet. For a quick overview, here are the names, which I will go into in more detail below: air foil - a solution for broken computer speakers, tax fix - a solution for the tax return, and Wolfram Alpha - a solution for all those inquisitive.

Airfoil Satellite - Stream audio from Mac or PC to iPhone
Are you missing an audio output device on your Mac? Are your headphones broken or are the built-in speakers in your laptop crazy? No problem, because with Airfoil you can stream system and app audio over the WiFi network to the iPhone. To do this, install the Airfoil app on macOS or Windows, which you can get on the developer's website. On the iPhone you need the Airfoil Satellite App, which is available in the App Store. It is important, however, that the free computer version only transmits 10 minutes of audio. The full version is $ 35. Do you know a free alternative? Then leave a comment! :)
- Name: Airfoil Satellite
- Price: Free, but the full version of the Companion App is $ 35
- Download: App Store

Taxfix - complete your tax return on your iPhone
For many, the tax return is a taboo subject - not because you don't talk about money, but because it annoys you and nobody likes to deal with forms and receipts. The makers of Taxfix, who want to simplify the process with their app, also know this. You can already clarify whether the download is worthwhile on the website of the offer by answering a few questions. If it is predicted that you will receive a tax refund, it is then worthwhile to study the app and its possibilities further. The good thing about it: Download and use are free. Costs are only incurred if there is a refund thanks to the submitted declaration.
Wolfram Alpha - Science, Facts, and More
Stephen Wolfram has been working on a digital library on all sorts of topics for over 30 years. However, this is not just a collection of text or formulas, but is now an extensive, interactive offer. Do you want to know which aircraft you are currently seeing in the sky? Do you want to know whether the tide is ebb or flown on a coast? Do you want to convert a formula into a graph? Or do you want to find films with certain actors? All this and much more is possible with the Wolfram Alpha app on the iPhone. There is also the Wolfram Alpha View app as an additional offer. A great reference work for only 2,99 euros.
