My Five Favorite Apps

Today I am joining in on the Blog Everyday in July Challenge again. Today's prompt is "Favorite Apps," so here are my top five!

1. Hootsuite
Before I had Hootsuite, I would have to space out my post-related tweets on my own time. Now, I can just schedule the tweets for when I would like them to go live. I also like that I can shrink the links within the app instead of having to use google URL shortener or some other program.

2. Instagram
I mean, this is a given. I love being able to see into people's days, instead of having to wait for that long awaited blog post. It is more up close and personal and it really allows you to get to know people differently. Also, since I do not have a Facebook, it is a good alternative for keeping up with friends and family. 

3. Flipboard
This is an iPad app that allows you to create your own magazine-style reader. I can add topics like "gardening" or "fitness" and get articles on them. I can also add my favorite social media hashtags or users, as well as blogs that I love to follow. It puts everything in one convenient location and chooses "cover stories" based on what is popular and what type of content I access most!


4. Mint
I have shared about the Mint app previously on my money saving tricks post. This allows M and I to set budgets and track our spending on one app. I look at it at least once a day and use it more than my bank's app.

5. Goodreads
I love being able to keep up with what my friends are reading, check out new books, and update my progress on books I am reading from my phone. It is convenient for when I am on the go and want to purchase a new book for my nook because it doesn't require me to get on the computer. 

What are your favorite apps?
