Whether it’s photo editing or scheduling workouts, it seems like there’s an app for everything theses days! Today I’m sharing 8 of my favorite iPhone apps (and they’re all free)!
This is my go-to photo editing app and always the first one I use. It has many of the same features of the desktop Lightroom version but you don’t need to have Lightroom experience, it’s very easy to use. You can use presents, do selective edits on certain parts of the photo and it now has a healing feature. You can also shoot photos directly from the app in DNG which is the mobile equivalent of RAW camera photos, giving you more editing capabilities. I used the Lightroom app to edit the photo below.
If you want something to spruce up your Instagram stories, I highly recommend this app. You can add white borders, multiple photos/videos and clean fonts. It just makes your stories look a little more “professional.”
If you don’t have the Venmo app, stop what you’re doing and download it! This is by far the easiest way to transfer money, especially if you’re like me and never have cash. I was at the nail salon the other day and they had just changed their policy to cash tips only and of course I didn’t have any cash on me but the nail tech asked if I had Venmo so I just paid her that way, so easy!
I love this app because it’s the easiest way to shop outfits and home decor from your favorite bloggers and influencers (follow me here!). Every photo is shoppable and you can even create wishlists to save your favorite items for later, just click on the little heart on the corner of the item. And if you screenshot any LIKEtoKNOW.it enabled image on Instagram, it will immediately pop up in the app.
While I don’t stress too much over having a “perfectly curated” feed (I am not one of those people who can have the next 3-4 posts planned), I like to use Snug to plan my next IG photo to see what it will look like in the overall scheme. It’s the OCD in me!
Did you know if you have Amazon Prime then you get unlimited photo storage and 5G of video storage with Amazon? Yep, you heard right! You can drag all your photos into a folder on your computer and they’ll automatically appear in your app as well. This one has been a time saver- it’s so quick and easy to access old photos and document files. If you already have Prime, you need this!
I use this app to schedule all my workout classes and it has been great to get a variety of workouts in including spin, barre, circuit training, and yoga. You can sign up for a certain amount of credits per month which you can use toward fitness classes and studios- there are so many to choose from and I have found my favorites over the past 2 years. I’m almost at 250 classes! You can check out a more detailed post I wrote about it here. If you have ClassPass in your city and are curious to try it, you can get $30 off your first month by clicking here!
Before the days of Insta-famous influencers, there were blogs and I still continue to read them whenever I get a chance! I love to use Bloglovin to follow all my favorite blogs- you can do this either on your computer or your app (follow me here). Scrolling through the “perfect” Instagram photos is great and all, but I love the amount of information I can get from the blog post and you can really get to know the blogger so much better. Some of my favorite to follow are Pretty in the Pines, Brighton the Day, Louella Reese, and Pink Peonies.
I use most of these app and totally agree that I love them! I thought I was the only still using Bloglovin haha. It is the best way for me to know when my favorite bloggers have a new post!
I love Bloglovin and the ltk app. I’ll have to check out the other ones!
I’m loving your two piece set! Also great apps! I love snug! My favorite app for planning my posts!
Thank you for sharing this – I was actually looking for such a post. I’m downloading UNFOLD as we speak. I’ll be referring to this post again.

I’m debating if I should check out unfold. I like having my stories a little more relaxed but I’m curious!
All of these are such awesome apps! I definitely need to check out Unfold, thanks for the recommendation!
cute & little
I use almost all of these (or similar versions of them)! Great apps to have on your phone for sure!

You just blew my mind! I did not know you could shoot in Lightroom and create a DNG file. Thank you for sharing that lady!
