Five Apps I couldn't Live Without And Five I Could

I'm always on my phone. If I'm not on it, its on my person. I will admit I am a 100% addict but I am always up to something on it,  updating my blog, having a chinwag on Twitter or making sure my Hootsuites up to date, with all this activity I thought I'd share my top 5 apps as well as 5 I've hated!

With endless possibilities at our finger tips, smartphones have really opened up a whole new world and it can seem a bit like falling down a never ending hole. I've used hundreds of apps and I think I've finally cracked the apps that work best for me and what I use my smartphone for!

1. Twitter

I probably don't need to explain this choice haha! I live my life on Twitter, it's an awesome way to communicate with people all over the world, discover events, news and so much more. I basically live my life on Twitter either with updates about my blog or general life.

2. Facebook

Everyone's on Facebook aren't they? I don't really ever update my personal Facebook account but I do use it for the amazing blogger groups. SO many opportunities and events I've discovered through them so I have a good nosey on there a few times a day.

3. Instagram

I update my Instagram daily and love nothing more than wasting hours scrolling through pretty photos and adding more and more places I want to go to my bucket list. I follow anything and everything that takes my fancy!

4. WhatsApp

I bloody love WhatsApp! I'm always on there chatting to someone and I love that it's so easy to talk, send photos and videos and not kill off my battery. I prefere it to Snapchat (probably because I just don't get Snapchat!)

5. Pinterest

What smartphone would be complete without it?! Hours upon hours are spent looking at craft, makeup, beauty and food ideas I never knew I needed. I also use it for blog promotion by posting my latest post onto shared blogger boards! Pinterest I love you!

Smartphone Apps

SO while I've discovered my perfect apps, I've also been on a long journey with awful ones too!

1. Blogger

My blog is based on Blogger and the app is utterly appalling! It's so hard to use and just so pointless, I always struggle to get the blog layout I like for my posts so I gave up, deleted the app and just use the online version instead!

2. Afterlight

I read hundreds of blogs with bloggers raving about this photo editing app. I even coughed up the £1 or whatever it was and brought it. Do not see the fuss, there are so many better apps that are free! I used Pixlr instead, alot easier to use and better results.

3. Hootsuite

Eurgh! I have a total love hate relationship with Hootsuite as it is but this app is awful. It's awkward to use, hard to read and isn't very user friendly. It's another one I've given up using and opt for the online version instead.

4. Tumblr

Nope, nope, nope. I just can't get used to it. It's not the same and it's annoying. Online all the way.

5. Snapchat

Try and try as I might I just can't get my head around it. I'm not really interested in seeing someone's 'story' of badly filmed gigs or them out with their friends thinking they are hilarious.

What apps do you love and hate?
Until next time,



  1. I definitely agree with you on most of these - although I don't use Pinterest on my phone, I just don't see the point in it tbh, and I do use Hootsuite, I've never found the app a problem! Haha. But I totally agree about Snapchat, do not see the point. And the Blogger app is just awful. I keep hoping one day there'll be an update and it will be great, because the Wordpress one is fab, but it never comes! Wishful thinking, eh?! x x

  2. Oooh I don't mind the blogger app. I can draft a post then use my laptop to make things perfect later.
    Love my Twitter though ;)

  3. This is brilliant! I feel like I'm in a bit of a rut at the moment and my blog has been a bit quiet, love this though, I feel inspired! x

  4. The Blogger app is such a nightmare, wished they'd update it!
