With over a million mobile apps available it’s not surprising there is pretty much an app for everything from ‘Places I’ve Pooped’, ‘Paranormal Meter’, ‘Drunk Dial No’ and ‘Game For Cats’. I for one do not keep track of places I’ve pooped, or use my iPhone to track paranormal activity, but I might just download ‘Drunk Dial No’! But jokes aside, amongst the thousands of photos and social media apps, I have a few very handy apps on my iPhone that I use on a regular basis.
Pinterest is my favourite online place to procrastinate and quickly becoming my favourite social media platform. If you are yet to divulge into the world of Pinterest, to put it simply it’s a place to ‘pin' your favourite images into themed boards and it’s very addictive. I have been pinning like crazy in recent months and noticed that my Pinterest account has been driving a lot of referral traffic over to my blog. Highly recommend you sign up/download if you haven’t already.
My Fitness Pal
Over the last five months I have lost 2.5 stone and research suggests that for many of us, keeping a record of our daily consumption aids greatly with weight loss. And although my weight loss has been down to a number of factors, one app in particular has been great at helping me track my progress and maintain my motivation. My Fitness Pal is fundamentally a calorie counting app and is free to download. It’s easy to use and also helps to track weight loss, exercise and daily nutritional goals. One thing I particularly like is its huge database, which also includes many restaurants. I can’t fault it; it’s a very effective weight loss tool.
Picfx is my favourite and most used photo editing app. The app costs £1.49 and has 47 different filters and frames and the added option to layer different looks. It also has an opacity slider, which allows you to control the strength of each filter. It also has lighting effects which are very popular on Instagram. A couple of my favourite filters are ‘Marshmallow’ and ‘PFX 5’. What’s your favourite photo editing app?
I might not track where I poop, but I do track my menstrual cycle with Clue (TMI?). I for one don’t have regular cycles and this app calculates the average length of your cycle and predicts your period due date. It’s genius. The more you use Clue the more accurate it gets, you can also enter data about your period pain, mood, fluid, sexual activity and personal notes. It makes dealing with lady issues far easier and you can even set up alerts so you’re not caught off guard and best of all, it’s free!
