My Favorite Apps


When it comes to apps, I like simple. I don't like too many cluttering up my phone, so the ones I have loaded I use all the time. I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorites and find out what apps you can't do without.

Feedly I keep up with blogs and other websites with Feedly. I love how you can customize the organization. It's easy to use on the desktop of my computer or on my phone.

Instagram Instagram is my #1 favorite social media format. Give me all the pretty pictures! It's like micro blogging. But in order to use Instagram you've got to take good pictures, which brings me to . . .

PicTapGo One of the easiest photo apps out there, in my opinion. I love how you can layer the filters and control their opacity (I rarely use a filter at full strength). I love the "Lights On" filter for lightening up dark pictures and it's so easy to post to Instagram from inside the app.

VSCO VSCO sat on my phone for a long time until I figured it out. It is not as intuitive as PicTapGo. I love that I can edit my pictures without using any filters but just tweaking it to my own eye. But as far as filters go, I also love that you can purchase various "collections" depending on the look you are trying to accomplish.

Pinterest I keep most of my recipes on Pinterest now and so it's important for me to be able to access them on my phone at times.

She Reads Truth The She Reads Truth app is my favorite Bible app. I like how the app formats the Bible and also that it contains devotional plans. I used their devotionals for this past Advent season, reading their "Advent: Born is the King" series. I also did their "Women in the Word" series over the summer.

Pray As You Go I was recently introduced to this app by Kortney of One Deep Drawer. I am really enjoying it. When I've not had time to sit down and read my Bible or have hands full with the baby this app is perfect for centering my soul. It is an experience with about 15 minutes of sacred music, a scripture reading, and a devotional thought, all read with English accents to boot. My little one has been waking early this past month and it's been perfect to sit and listen to while sipping coffee and looking at the twinkling Christmas tree lights.

Star Walk This is such a fun app to discover the constellations! Just point toward the sky and the app will show you where the constellations are in the sky! My kids love this one.

Google Drive I use Google Drive for various notes and documents, so it's handy to be able to access them on my phone when I'm on the go.

What's your can't-live-without app?
