Apps I Love

As much as I use my phone, I'm really not a huge app person. I am slightly OCD when it comes to the organization of my apps on my phone, and tend to get the wonderful "you are almost out of storage" notification frequently, thus forcing me to delete anything I don't frequently use. In addition to your basic social media apps (Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and Facebook), above are nine of my favorite and most frequently used apps on my phone.  

+Health
The health app is one of the few apps that come on the iPhone that I genuinely like and find useful. Having the ability to monitor how many steps you take in a day, how many miles you ran/walked, and seeing your sleep schedule is something very intriguing to me. I especially enjoy looking at this when I am in a city and do a ton of walking in one day. 

+Nike Running 
This is probably one of my all time favorite apps. During summer training, and cross country season this is pretty much my holy grail. The app tracks your run with maps, provides your pace for the individual run, the time of your run, and lots of other handy stats. The challenges feature is also great, as you can set goals between you and your friends and watch everyone's progress! 

+Pinterest
I guess this is technically a form of social media, but for the sake of this post I am going to separate it. Pinterest is my favorite app to go on when I am lacking blog inspiration, in need for outfit ideas, or find myself with the need to plan my future house or wedding. It's very distracting #procrastination 

+Google Translate 
Fun fact about me: I am horrible at French. I would consider myself a pretty good student, but boy am I awful at foreign language. They have told us from day one of my french "career" to not use this app, however it's just so quick and easy that sometime you just need it. 

+Uber
This app is a game changer. I am a huge fan of Uber and find myself completely dependent on it whenever I am in the city. 

+Poshmark
Within the past six months or so, I have been loving the Poshmark app. Selling your clothes that you no longer wear or fit into is a great way to make some extra money. I am also a fan of eBay, but this is nice because they send you the shipping label and you don't even have to go to the post office. 

+Spotify
Spotify is my favorite place to listen to music. Besides Taylor Swift's album, I have not purchased any songs on iTunes in forever. I love having access to pretty much any song I could ever want, other people's playlist, playlists for your mood, and your friend's music. Premium is completely worth the $9.99 a month! 

+Bandsintown
This is probably the least known app that I have featured, but it's so handy. If you have never heard of it, Bandsintown uses your location and puts all the concerts coming to your area in one place. You can filter it to just show artists you are interested in and receive alerts when they announce tours. Also, there is always a direct link to purchase tickets. 

+VSCO
This is my favorite app for editing Instagram pictures. I like how the app allows you to have a grid where you can share your pictures as well as edit them. Follow us @preppybythesea

What are your favorite apps?
