Apps can make your day-to-day life easier rather than simply clutter your home screen. For example, they can help you automate tasks, get things done in a pinch, and even explore. You just have to find the right apps for your lifestyle.
I occasionally work from my phone and create content from my phone. So, I like to have apps that assist accordingly. I’d say that my must-have apps each fit into one of three categories: Lifestyle, content creation, and organization/work. If you’re looking to get things done more effectively in any of those areas, read on for some helpful tools to download!
OpenTable: This app is great for making local dinner reservations, and it comes in handy when you’re traveling too. When I was on my Nashville trip, I used OpenTable a lot to search for spots to go and manage reservations.
Obe: As you may already know, I subscribe to Obe for at-home workouts. I’d recommend getting the app and joining if you’re looking for a fun way to move.
Starbucks: I use this app on at least a weekly basis. If you frequent Starbucks too, getting the app is worth it!
Fetch: This app gives you rewards for scanning your receipts. Seriously, it’s as simple as that. I’ve gotten a few free Starbucks runs from using this app. Here’s my referral link.
Lightroom: If you need to edit photos on the go, this app is perfect for you. I like to use the “bright” and “natural” presets for quick edits.
InShot: This is my favorite app for editing video content for Reels.
Organization & Work
GoodNotes: I use this app on my iPad with my Apple Pencil. I appreciate the organization of the app and how easy it is to backup my notes to my Google Drive.
Google Drive Apps: While I regularly use Google Drive on my MacBook, it comes in handy to have the apps on my phone. It makes sharing files and making last-minute edits convenient.
Gmail: I understand that not everyone is a fan of having their emails on their phone, but I like having it to keep up with my freelance work. I also have a more manageable inbox when I periodically check it throughout the day.
What are some of your must-have apps? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments or on Instagram. Let’s chat!
