18 must-have free iPhone apps (2014)

We all know that lakhs of apps are available in the app store. Even if the list is really long, you use the paid apps only if you need to do some tasks that are useful for you in one way or the other. I recently used an iPad app called Tabtor Math, that assist my child learning mathematics. I purchased the app as I find it very useful for my children. What if there is another app that works the similar way and is free? Definitely, you and me will go for the free app even if it may not be matching the other ones standard to an extent.
