Top 3 iPhone Apps
These days it's the norm to be glued to our smart phones. In case facebook, twitter and IG weren't enough, there are now countless apps that help you budget, shop, stay organized, make lists, edit photos, waste time, etc and new ones pop up pretty much daily.
Aside from the obvious ones for me (IG, twitter, FB), I thought I'd share a few of my other favorite apps that help me get through my day. These are only a few of the apps I use daily- so if you like this post and want to learn about more of my favorites let me know and I can share a few more in upcoming posts. I'd also love to hear your favorite apps as well so be sure to let me know in the comments so I can check them out!
Snapseed is one of my favorite photo editing tools. While I mostly use the IG photo editing features for my photos, snapseed is amazing for isolating areas to focus on editing. For example, want a bright white background on a photo but only part of the photo is shadowed? Instead of brightening the overall picture and over exposing some of it, in snapseed you can use the "selective adjust" feature to highlight the are you want to brighten (or whichever editing feature you choose) and only edit that area. Definitely a handy feature for getting the best IG photos!
Wunderlist has truly been a lifesaver. I only downloaded it two months ago after hearing Jillian Harris mention it in her talk at blogpodium but in a short time it has become my favorite app. I've mentioned a few times before that I am the queen of "to do" lists but I don't always have my notebook with my and sticky notes easily get lost. I've never loved the notes function on my iphone so when I first downloaded wunderlist I wasn't totally sure I'd actually use it but boy was I wrong! You can create different types of lists such as "grocery list", "music to download", "blog post ideas" etc. If the item requires a reminder or due date or notes you can enter all of that and more and if it doesn't, you can just enter the item. Trust me, this is one app you'll want to get, like now!
3. My Fitness Pal
The last app I'll mention today is a great food and exercise tracking app. Set fitness goals and the app will calculate your recommended activity and food level. You can track your exercise, water intake as well as obviously all of your food. It has a convenient scanning function where you can scan any packaged food and also has a library of most foods, a lot of restaurant meals and my favorite feature is that you can import a recipe from online (or enter it manually) and it will calculate the nutritional information. The app is not perfect; exercise options are limited and you need to double check the ingredients it matches when you import a recipe however, as a general tracking tool that's super easy to use (and free!) I'd highly recommend checking it out.
So there you go, a few of my favorite apps. What are some of yours?!
