In the age of iPhone mania, I am always on my phone. Whether its for work, personal life, entertainment etc. I always have that 8s plus, rose gold colored phone on me and 9 times out of 10 its in my hand.
In the line of work I’m in (PR, marketing, advertising etc.) being on your phone is apart of the hustle and on my personal time when I’m blogging its no different. Some of you may think, “god thats insane” but I wouldn’t have it any other way. So if you’re like me and are joined at the hip with your iPhone take a look at my 10 favorite iPhone apps I love/use daily!
UNUM is a design platform/layout with built-in specialized analytics & content strategies for your Instagram. I LOVE THIS APP! That’s why I made it number one for you all haha. This app is how I plan out my Instagram feed every month to make sure I’m posting at the most prime time and that my feed looks cohesive/aesthetically pleasing to my liking. It’s honestly a game changer especially for people like me who like to plan things out! You can download it here.
Okay so this one may be odd for some of you but if anyone knows me, they know I love to track the weather. WEIRD, I know haha! But I always have and I check this app every morning. It’s so in-depth unlike any other weather app out there. Its an overall/at-a-glance look at potential weather headed your way. It shows hi-def radars, temperatures, amount/strength of rainfall, national weather alerts, and even a detailed hurricane (and earthquake) tracker which has been so important for me living in the southern coast. You can also “favorite” your locations so you can always be updated on changes in your area. You can download it here.
3. Flixster & Trailers
Who doesn’t love going to the see a new film? One of my favorite things is to go to the movie theaters so I had to get an app that showed me literally everything about the cinema. Flixster is my favorite for finding local theaters near me no matter where I am (great for out-of-state travel), showing a list of theaters with their showtimes and available movies. You can download FLIXSTER here. Meanwhile, Trailers shows a list of new movies for the entire year!!! It provides a summary, trailer, pictures, list of actors, release date and the option to “favorite” a movie/make a list within the app. I love this app because it helps me to see when new movies are coming out so I can make my list and plan ahead. You can download TRAILERS here.
This app has been so helpful for me! Whether I’m online shopping or in-store I always check this app for coupons, sales & discount codes! 8 out of 10 times I find something at whatever store I’m shopping at that discounts my purchases. It really is so helpful and easy to use! All you do is type in the store you’re shopping at and a list of online & in-store coupons pops up with bar codes that your cashier can scan or codes you enter online. You can download it here!
5. Dream Days
Another one for you planners out there! I love counting down days to special events like holidays, trips, the weekend (haha) etc. Dream Days is a fun and personal count down app for all your special events. You can set the date, time, location, event, a feature image and push notifications so that you know how many days are left for your “Dream Day”. You can download it here!
6. Kira Kira +
This is such a fun app especially for the holidays which are coming up so I thought I’d add it to the list. Kira Kira is a photo editing app that adds a little extra shimmer to your photos. Quite literally… its a filter that makes your photo sparkle. Perfect for those holiday pics with champagne or christmas lights! Last year I used for my New Years Eve themed photos and everyone asked me how I got the effect. You can download it here.
Since we’re on the topic of photo editors, I use Lightroom I use this app to edit all my photos with my own preset. Currently, I’ve been using my fall preset that I made for all my photos. The app allows you to adjust multiple things on your photo. From exposure to saturation and sharpness to grain it honestly has it all. I usually edit my photos on my laptop with the Lightroom adobe app but sometimes if I don’t have my laptop with me the mobile version works just as well. You can download it here!
For years now I’ve been using Spotify for all my music needs! I love this app so much! I have the Spotify Premium which allows me to access my music & playlists anywhere online or offline & it plays with no ads. However, the free version is just as wonderful. Spotify has been a game changer for me because I don’t have to pay a $1.99 for every song like iTunes. You can download it here!
9. Tezza App
This app is a great alternative to edit your own photos if you don’t know how to use Lightroom and create your own presets. Tezza Barton, from @tezza is an amazing influencer and best selling author of “Instastyle”. She created an app for all her fans who love the way she edits her photos with a unique grainy touch. Her app also allows you to edit videos with her filters too. I love using it to edit my insta-stories on the go! You can download it here!
StoryLuxe is an instagram story template app that allows you to create beautifully crafted collages! This app is one of my favorites because its so unique and it definitely has something for everyones taste and style. For me I like a more vintage, old film and grainy look so I use the “film” and the “element” templates a lot! You can download it here!
