So I’ve had an iPhone now for almost 3 years. It took me a while to plug into the smartphone trend. Would you believe my mom got an iPhone before I did? Yeah, weird. In any case, I got my first iPhone, the 4, in 2012 and upgraded this past year to an iPhone 5s. So, out of my love for sharing I have decided to share what apps I use the most on my iPhone.
I’ve gone through my share of third-party Twitter apps, simply because the official app annoys me. I had a brief stint where I was using Tweetbot, but ultimately went back to Echofon because I have the option of a dark background rather than the plain white one.
I can’t go a day without going onto Bloglovin’ and reading posts from my favorite blog (and that list keeps growing). I can spend a lot of my time reading and saving posts. This is an app I’d suggest to anyone who is looking for an easier way to read their favorite blogs. I also have this app on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 NOOK.
Yes, yes. I know this an obvious one, but I had to add it. I use it everyday even though I don’t always post a new picture every day (since I’m usually picky about the photos I post). I get a lot of photography inspiration from this neat little app and I have even found some other bloggers through here.
This is the single most useful app I have ever added to my phone (thank you Thomas Frank). I also have this app on my MacBook Pro and my tablet and it really came in handy last semester. I was able to take my notes on my laptop or tablet in my classes and when I needed a quick review, the notes were right on my phone. It’s also a great place to store blog ideas when I’m out and about and have it sync right to the app on my laptop.
My go-to photo editing app. Pretty much every Instagram photo I post goes through this app first. I love the ease of editing and the effects it offers. There are also a few effect packages that you can buy in the app, but even the free ones are great. If I’m ever not feeling the vsco-effect, I’ve got Afterlight as a back-up.
I love this app because it’s a cool way to keep track of all the books I’ve ever read and will read. You can also connect with friends to see what their reading. However, what I love the most about this app is when I’m at Barnes & Noble and use the scan feature to scan books I want to read but can’t necessarily afford or want to download on my NOOK later.
Okay, so I don’t use this one everyday, but you really can’t beat being able to pay right from your phone and earn rewards (as in the occasional free drink). There is also a nice little feature where each week they pick a song or app of the week that you can get for free in the iTunes/App store. I recently just got the app Day One for free through Starbucks Rewards. The best part of the Starbucks app, at least for me, is that it makes it much easier for me to track the money left on my gift cards that I received for Christmas.
A recent find, from another blog actually. This app allows you to save articles to read later when you have a chance. It has come in handy for when I see bloggers sharing their posts on Twitter, but I don’t have time to read it because I’m at school or work. It’s much easier than scrolling through my favorites on Twitter. You can also add it to your browser on your computer and have the devices sync up what you’ve saved on your computer and your phone!
What apps do you use regularly? Are there any on my list that you also use?
