Apple’s WWDC 2024 Announcements Spell the End for These 9 Apps and Software Tools

Apple killed a bunch of apps and software during its WWDC 2024 announcements.

Here are the top 9.

1. ChatGPT Wrappers:
With Siri now integrating OpenAI’s ChatGPT, standalone ChatGPT wrapper apps may become redundant. Siri’s enhanced capabilities can now directly access ChatGPT for complex queries.

2. Venmo and CashApp:
Apple’s “Tap to Pay for Apple Cash” feature introduces a new way for peer-to-peer payments, posing a threat to established players like Venmo and CashApp.

3. Grammarly Alternatives:
Apple’s new AI-driven writing tools and smart summaries in Mail and Notes could reduce the reliance on grammar and writing enhancement tools like Grammarly.

4. Bezel and Other Mirroring Apps:
Apple’s new iPhone mirroring feature on macOS Sequoia allows users to control their iPhone directly from their Mac. This integration is smoother and more intuitive than third-party mirroring apps like Bezel.

5. TapeACall and Similar Call Recording Apps:
iOS 18 introduces native call recording and transcription features, eliminating the need for third-party apps like TapeACall.

6. Math Notes Apps like Soulver:
The introduction of the Calculator app with Math Notes on iPadOS 18 allows for handwritten calculations and graphing, challenging apps like Soulver.

7. Fitness Tracking Apps like WHOOP:
New fitness features in watchOS 11, including more detailed and actionable data directly from the Apple Watch, could affect specialized fitness tracking apps like WHOOP.

8. Genmoji Apps like Newji:
Apple’s Genmoji feature allows users to create custom emojis based on text prompts, potentially diminishing the need for separate emoji creation apps like Newji.

9. AllTrails and Similar Outdoor Activity Apps:
Apple’s updated Maps and new fitness tracking features, including enhanced hiking data and offline navigation, could impact apps like AllTrails that specialize in outdoor activity tracking and route planning.

Apple‘s robust integration of AI and system-wide enhancements are set to redefine user experiences, but they also present significant challenges for various third-party apps and startups.

What are your thoughts on Apple’s new features impacting the apps and tools you use daily?
