My Favorite Apps

There are so many apps out there these days that it is sometimes difficult to find the really good ones among the really bad ones. I can't tell you how many apps I have downloaded and then promptly deleted after the first use because it really wasn't functional or well designed. For this reason, I love getting recommendations from friends when it comes to discovering great apps, so I thought I would share with you some of my favorite apps in case it may be useful for you!
+ Map My Fitness
I really like using this app to track my walks with Marly & Dai. It is nice to know how long we have been walking and how far we have gone. It is also great to have all of my walks recorded in one spot, and at the end of each week, the app e-mails me a summary of my activities. It is a nice motivator! With this app, you can also change your activity to running, hiking, biking, etc. and it will track it accordingly. Pretty cool!
+ Wunderlist
I am a list maker. I love making lists for everything, whether it is a to-do list, a shopping list, a packing list, or an idea list. Wunderlist is a great app for those like me! I really like that it allows me to keep several lists going at the same time and that I can really categorize things to keep myself organized. Also, when you check something off your list, it makes a really awesome sound that makes you feel like you are winning at life by getting stuff done. That always helps, right?
+ Cartwheel by Target
I know that I am definitely not the only one here in the blogging world that has a loving relationship with Target. That's why we should all have the Cartwheel app on our phones! This app is a convenient way to save a bit of money while shopping at Target. Basically, it has lists of items that you can digitally save coupons for onto your "cartwheel." Then, when you are at the register, the cashier will scan the barcode on your phone and you will save money! I don't always buy items listed on the app, but it is nice to be able to save some money when I do. A little bit here and there can really add up over time!
+ Hours Keeper
This app is fairly simple, but is really convenient for me. As a nanny, I have to keep track of my hours for each week so that I can let the family I work with know what the balance they owe me for that week is. I started using this app at the beginning of the school year and it has been great! It is very easy to use and gives me one less thing to remember on my own! If you have a job in which you keep track of your own hours, I definitely recommend this app :)
+ VSCO Cam
I may have mentioned this app before and it is pretty popular, but in the last year it has become my most favorite photo editing app! When I first started using it, I didn't like it very much for some reason, but I have really come around to it and love the way it edits my photos. It has really great quality filters, but still gives you the ability to control the exposure, contrast, temperature, etc. of your photo, which is really nice.

What are some of your favorite apps?

Oh I was just thinking of filming a video for my Youtube channel called "What's in my iPhone" Ha great minds, think a like!
I use all of those apps except for Hours Keeper but I think I may because I'd like to see how much time I spend on blog things per week. I also love: OneNote, MyPlate, the games 94% and Twisty Hollow (for playing at 1am while I listen to William screaming until he falls asleep), Retail Me Not, and Hyperlapse.
