Replace Camera with Camera+
I've taken more photos with my iPhone than any other camera I've ever owned. While I find the default Camera app to be acceptable, there's one app that can transform the iPhone -- or iPad -- from good camera into a great camera.
My favorite app is Camera+. Along with being able to activate the camera shutter, Camera+ has the following features:
- Quality settings allow you to take high, medium and low quality photos based on your need;
- Continuous flash;
- Advanced shooting modes, including burst and timer;
- Filters and effects.

Replace Photos with Exif Wizard
The default Photos app annoys me for a number of reasons. Specifically, I can't understand why the app doesn't show me the date or time when a picture was taken, and refuses to give me access to the EXIF information stored with the photograph which contains detailed information relating to the photo.
The best app for this purpose is Exif Wizard. This can access photos from your photo rolls and show you all the hidden data saved along with the image.
If you want more features -- such as the ability to access photos stored on iCloud or work servers with images up to 13 megapixels in resolution -- you can upgrade to the Pro version for $1.99.

Replace Contacts, Calendar with Pocket Informant
Why have data spread across three apps when you can have it in one: Pocket Informant.
Having all your data in one place not only makes getting to it faster because you don't have to constanty shuffle apps, but you can also makes organizing and backing up your vital data a lot easier.
Pocket Informant is packed with dozens of features that allow you to take control of your busy schedule. Highly customizable, Pocket Informant comes highly recommended, despite the premium price.
Price: $9.99 for the iPhone version | $14.99 for the universal version.
