10 Recommended Phone Apps

Ahh! Happy April, y'all! It feels like it's been forever since I was last on here, but I couldn't be more excited that it's a new month and that the weather is FINALLY warming up a bit :) To get back in the swing of things, I thought it would be fun to share ten of my favorite phone apps that I use on a regular basis. I would love to hear what some of your faves are that you use and want to know if you have any recommendations too!
Joyce Meyer- If your like me, you don't always have time to read the Bible every day. I hate that, but it's the truth. For weeks I had been searching for something (whether it was a book, devotional or an app on my phone) that provided me with some sort of "biblical teaching" that I could read on-the-go. That's were the Joyce Meyer app came into play. I love it. Not only do you get a daily devotional, but you can also watch the daily broadcast episodes that are generally 30 minutes or less. Each day, you'll find a new devotional and episode to enjoy. And my favorite is the prayer starter at the end of each devotional. Sometime's, I get stuck on how I want to start my prayers and this always helps me figure out how I want to begin. 

Bloglovin- If your a regular blogger, then you probably know what Bloglovin is. And the chances that you use it daily are likely high right?! Well for those who didn't know...Bloglovin has an app, so there is NO reason why you can't follow your favorite blogs and discover new ones throughout the day (even when your not by your computer). This is one of the first apps I open when I wake up in the morning and hey, there is no shame in that!
My Talking Pet- Okay. You havvve to go download this app right now! I guarantee you will laugh until you cry (no joke)! So the name of the app explains it all. My Talking Pet. All you do is take a photo or upload a photo of your beloved furbaby. Then you speak into the microphone, saying whatever you want. I like to sing some song lyrics or make up jokes. When you are done, you end the recording and can change the tone of voice of and then play the video of your pet "talking". I can't tell you how many videos I have made and have sent to family and friends...and I'm pretty sure I've got a handful of friends addicted to this app as well. Literally go check it out!
Heads Up- This is another fun one, although, this one is a game. And here is a fact for you. This game is from Ellen DeGeneres so you know it's gotta be good. Per the description from the app store, this app goes "from naming celebrities, to singing, to silly actions--guess the word on the card that's on your head from your friends' clues before the timer runs out". To go to the next card you simply tilt your phone upwards or downwards. And the best part? When the timer runs out, there is a video you can watch of the whole thing. I can't tell you how much fun it is to huddle around the phone and watching everyone who was playing along try to act out the different words from the categories.
Instagram- A must have for all you photo fans.
Twitter- Another obvious one for many reasons.
Pinterest- You can pretty much catch me using Pinterest on my lunch break or anytime I have a spare moment. I love Pinterest because it helps me come up with hundreds of home decorating ideas, DIY projects and I always come across some awesome quotes. (#Pinterestaddict)
TV Guide- I love my TV shows and I like to make sure I knot what is coming on so that if I want to record something, I have plenty of time to do just that. Now don't go assuming I watch a ton of TV, because I don't think I do...unless it's on the weekends which is totally acceptable in my book!
Snapseed- This is hands down my favorite photo editing app that I use. It's so easy to navigate, there are a handful of filters to choose from, and I swear that the quality and end product are never a disappointment.
Waterlouge- You like the way my photos look above? Well I'll give all the credit to Waterlouge! This app is one that is worth the few bucks that you'll spend! In short, it takes your regular photos and transforms them into watercolor beauties! You'll catch yourself spending hours playing around on this app!
And in case anyone wants to know what other photo apps I have on my phone, see above! The only other app shown that has a cost is the ABM one :)

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I will usually respond back to you via email (not here on the blog)...It's easier for me that way and hopefully it sparks a conversation for us! It makes me giddy that you're here and took the time to leave me a comment :)
