You would be astonished at the number of social media apps I have on my phone, and even more astonished at the number of apps that didn’t make the cut. I love trying out new apps, and I’m always on the hunt that make posting to social media more fun.

Here is a list of my 5 apps I couldn’t live without!

  1. Google Street View
    I use this app to create 360 Photos. I’m hoping to get a real 360 camera someday, but it’s hard to beat a free mobile app.
  2. Flipboard
    First off, I love the design of this app, I think it’s stunning  (I’m a sucker for beautiful design). Finding great content to post on social media can take a lot of time, and Flipboard is full of great content. I use it to find content while I’m waiting for the bus, waiting in line at the grocery store, or any time I have a few minutes through out the day.
  3. DropBox
    I don’t know what I would do without DropBox. I use the mobile app to continue work to create a seamless workflow from my computer to my phone. For example, I edit all my images for my travel blog in Photoshop on my computer. Once I’m happy with the image, I save it into DropBox, and instantly I can open that same image on my phone. Now I can upload those images to Instagram.
  4. Boomerang
    What’s better then a picture on social media? A moving picture! Boomerang makes it easy to create short animations that are perfect for Instagram.
  5. Adobe Spark 
    Adobe Spark is my ace in the hole. If I have a boring image I want to spice up – Adobe Spark. If I need to create an animation I can create one from any image in less than a minute ( I made the animation at the top of this post using Adobe Spark). It has a huge library of free image I can use, and I can even post directly to Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter.

Did I miss your favorite app? Comment on Instagram or Facebook and let me know!
