10 Must Have Apps

10 Must Have Apps

If you were to go through my phone, you’d be welcomed with hundreds of photos and far too many apps. Half of them I don’t even use anymore and should probably delete as I literally have no space on my 16GB iPhone (Note to self: Get a 64GB or 128GB iPhone when you upgrade) for them. Today I’m sharing 10 apps I love that I consider must have. Apart from the obvious ones like Twitter & Instagram of course..

1. Dropbox
If you’re a blogger and want to promote your posts on Instagram, this is where Dropbox comes in so handy. If you don’t take blog photos with your phone or don’t have a WiFi enabled camera to upload directly to Instagram, transferring photos from your computer to your phone can be a little tricky and time consuming but not with Dropbox! Download it here to your computer and download the app to your phone, sign up and login on both devices and it will be synced.. So you can send photos from your computer to your phone and vice versa. It’s also a great way to keep your photos backed up incase anything should happen to your devices.

2. Valued Opinions
I only found out about this app a few weeks ago and I’m so glad I did. If you need a bit of extra dosh, it’s perfect. It’s basically a survey site where you can get rewarded for taking part. I’ve only done 2 surveys so far and I’ve already earned £1.25. Not a lot, but it will soon add up. Rewards include vouchers and charity donations, I’m not too sure on if you can actually withdraw your money earned though.

3. OnTrees
If you have trouble budgeting or you need to save money, OnTrees is a great app to track all your outgoings and see how much your spending on things like bills, groceries, clothes etc. You just sync all your accounts like your current account, savings account etc. to the app and it will tell you your current balance and your outgoings. Obviously you need to have Internet banking to be able to use this app!

4. VoucherCodes
I love a bargain and if I can get any money off a particular purchase, I will. Whether it be clothes or makeup to a meal out, you’ll find a voucher code for pretty much anything on this app. There are some great deals on there right now, so check it out! It’s a shame my bank account is on the brink of empty. 🙁

5. Groupon
Another good one for bargain lovers. Groupon has some great deals. It can be a trip abroad, an online course or a pack of 45 toilet tissues.. Yes, I’m being serious! If you want a bargain on some loo roll, Groupon is your app! Hehe. But in all seriousness, it’s a great app and I’ve had some fab deals off there in the past including a haircut at a local salon.

6. Wowcher
Very similar to Groupon, there isn’t much else to say about it as it really is pretty much the same but there are no bargain loo rolls on there at the moment that I can see.. but there are some allergy tablets, so y’know. But it is another great app to look at for bargain deals, so it’s handy to have both!

7. Tripomatic
I downloaded this to plan my upcoming trip to Amsterdam so if you’re going abroad soon and need to plan, this app is great. You just put in where your heading to and it will give you lists of things like hotels, places to see, tours etc. It even has a metro map for Amsterdam which will come in very handy.

8. Buzzfeed
You’ve all probably heard of Buzzfeed. If not, it’s basically a news site with a twist. Instead of your regular news stories you see in the papers, it’s more ‘social’ news, I guess. It’s quite a fun read and if you’re in need of a pick me up, it’s great. There have been many times where I’ve ended up crying with laughter whilst reading an article. However, it does touch on important news happening around the world too. I mostly read it when I’m on the laptop but if I’m out and about and fancy a read its handy to have the app.

If you’ve been reading my blog for some time, you’ll know I’m an avid comper. WAMO is a great app where you can win prizes. They have a new competition everyday for example, right now they are giving away a £50 Topshop Gift Card. All you have to do is go to the site suggested in the terms and pick something you like or something of a particular colour etc. It’s all in the rules what you have to do. It’s completely genuine, I have won £50 to spend at Miss Selfridge before in which I treated myself to a stunning tote bag.

10. DCC (Daily Celebrity Crossword)
I’m a geek and I like crosswords. A lot. This is one of two crossword apps on my phone and my favourite. I only downloaded it about two weeks ago and I’m a little obsessed. It’s not strictly celebrity focused but a lot of it is to do with the entertainment world and is very much US based so can get a little tricky at times if you have literally no knowledge in for example, the NFL. But it’s a lot of fun and I definitely recommend it.

What are your favourite apps? Any recommendations?
