If you guys are like me my phone is basically an extension of my body and I am that person that has like 100 apps on their phone. If I can figure out a way to make my life easier with an app I am downloading that baby immediately! Whether its finding a place to order dinner from or finding inspo for decorating your living room, there is an app for that! I rounded up some of my must haves below, and trust me, if you don’t have these 10 essential apps, you are really missing out!
For the New Mommas:
Moms On Call Scheduler is a life saver! We used the Moms On Call sleep method to sleep train Noah and this app was a lifesaver! I didn’t read the book. Just downloaded the app and it worked like a charm!
For the Seasoned Momma:
PBS Kids Video or PBS Kids Games are both game changers. Noah just turned 2 and is at a point where we feel like TV every now and then is fine. These apps totally save Noah from having a melt down at restaurants and I can’t recommend downloading them enough!
For the Working Girl:
Tiny Scanner is my favorite on the go work tool. I can scan and email documents directly from my phone. Total game changer.
Interior Design Enthusiast:
I use Houzz all the time to get inspo for my new projects (to learn more about my design company click here) or my own house. You can search hundreds of thousands if not millions of homes by room, paint colors, etc. Its a wealth of inspo! And that’s why it has made it into my list of top 10 essential apps.
Calling All Travelers:
I just started using this app called Hopper and I am obsessed! If you are flexible on travel days or months this is a game changer. You can search hotels and flights and the app will show you the cheaper times to travel so if you have some flexibility to can save a few dollars.
Getting in a workout routine can be tough. There are so many options and a lot of times I don’t want to do the same thing every day. I use the Sweat app to do my at home workouts and its sooooo great! It’s only 30 mins, no equipment needed, there are video examples that are easy to follow (this was super important to me because I am definitely not the best at getting the motions down quickly), and its pretty fun!
For the Clickin’ Girls:
I often get asked about how I edit my photos and there are a couple apps I use. Mainly I use the Lightroom app but two other REALLY cool apps are RNI Films and & Quickshot. I use RNI Films for vintage effects like dust and grain and Quickshot can transform backgrounds like you wouldn’t believe. See before and after below.
For the List Makers:
I use Asana every single day! The capabilities of this app are so cool! At the basic level its great for making lists and setting reminders and due dates and if you use it for work you can BCC Asana on emails sent so that action items you conquer and put in someone else’s court don’t get forgotten about but do actually get marked off the list.
For the Coffee Lover:
No app gets used as much on my phone as the Starbucks app. I get to skip the line and get free coffee from my rewards points. It’s a must have!
For the Shopaholics:
Second to my Starbucks app my Amazon app is the most used app on my phone. It makes taking things off my to-do list sooooo fast and now that they own WholeFoods I also get all kinds of perks when I scan the app at the grocery store! AND last but not least is the LikeToKnow.It app! I LOVE this app. I can see and shop outfits from other bloggers and its just everything dreams are made of.
