Hey y’all, happy Monday! Today I thought I would share some apps every blogger needs other than the typical social media apps like Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, or Facebook because that’s just too obvious and if people don’t have those then they’ve probably been living under a rock or aren’t a blogger. Now without further ado, 14 apps every blogger needs.
Apps Every Blogger Needs
Plann (or similar feed planning app)
This is my absolute favorite app that’s related to Instagram. I am able to plan out my feed each week and schedule posts for the appropriate time.
This app isn’t truly for Instagram but that’s how I’ve been using it. I use this app to participate in comment and like Instagram pods and it’s a lot easier than using Instagram’s DM feature since you can have more than 15 people in the chat.
This app is super helpful in seeing when your followers will be online. It also helps you figure out when the best time to post is.
I use this app to keep track of my follower/following ratio, my engagement rate per picture, and things of that nature. It also allows you to see if anyone has blocked you which is definitely interesting.
I typically don’t use Canva when I’m on the go too often but it’s nice to have in case you want to be able to create quick graphics on your phone.
A Color Story
This is one of my favorite apps for quick editing of my photos. It’s super easy to use.
Another great photo editing app. A lot of people swear by VSCO and I can definitely see why.
And yet again, another photo editing app. Can you tell I like to have options when it comes to editing my photos?
I didn’t really know what to categorize this one under but I love having my Dropbox on the go. I don’t use this app too frequently either but it’s always nice to have in case I need it.
Blog/Social Media Scheduling:
This isn’t an app I use all the time either because I usually check my stats on the computer but it’s always nice to have easy access if need be.
I swear by my Google Drive. All of my important documents are here so it’s nice to have access to them even if I don’t have my computer.
If I’m ever sitting at the doctor’s office or some other boring place, I browse BlogLovin and get caught up on some of my favorite blogger’s posts. It’s nice to be able to easily go through my favorite blogger’s posts without having to visit each individual website.
Hootsuite (or Buffer)
I’m more of a Hootsuite girl but I know some people prefer Buffer so use whatever one that your heart desires. This is good for scheduling things on the go because sometimes we forget to schedule out posts in advance.
Another app that I use sparingly but I still feel like it is important. I like knowing that if need be I can schedule some pins on Tailwind.
What are the apps you think every blogger needs? Please feel free to let me know down in the comments.
