8 Free Apps I Can’t Live Without

I’d like to take a break from interiors and DIY projects and talk about some of my favorite apps. The best part? They’re all FREE!

It goes without saying that I love my social media apps. But there are a few other apps that make running my life, my blog, and my business so much easier. (Note: these are all iTunes apps, but most have Android and Windows counterparts.)

1. Google Drive

I have a work computer, a home desktop, a laptop, an iPad, and an iPhone. Google Drive helps me keep all my documents with me, no matter what device I’m using. It also makes it easy to share documents and even photos with others.

2. Etsy & Sell on Etsy

The regular version is great for browsing Etsy. If you have a shop and are looking to manage your listings, Sell on Etsy is your best option.

3. Relax Melodies

I go to sleep to this app on many nights. It’s so relaxing, and gives you tons of options. You can even layer the sounds to get the one you’re looking for. Plus, there’s a timer so it cuts off after you’re asleep. My favorite “melodies” are Zen, Medieval, Duduk, Rainy Day, and Slow Waves.

4. Podcasts

I commute an hour to and from work each day (2 hours a day) so having something to listen to is really crucial. I get tired of the radio and Pandora, so podcasts are a nice alternative. I, like everyone else, got addicted to Serial (when is the next season?!), but I also love TED Talks.

5. Klout

There are many social media scheduling apps out there, but Klout is my favorite for Twitter. It makes it so easy for me to find posts and articles I want to share, and it also analyzes my ratings so my “feed” becomes more and more in line with what I’m looking for.

6. Evernote

Evernote allows me to not only create lists, but actually check things off…one of my favorite things. I will seriously make a list just to check it off. That’s normal, right?! Grocery lists, blog ideas, meeting notes…it all goes in here. Evernote syncs with all of my devices too, so I can always access my lists.

7. iHandy Level

This one’s pretty self explanatory, but I can’t count the number of times I’ve taken this app out to hang a picture. Genius!

8. Snapseed

I use a few different photo editing apps, but Snapseed is by far my favorite. There are lots of options and capabilities, but it’s very user friendly.

So what are your can’t-live-without apps?

  1. #6….checking things off of a list….Sorry you got that gene but you are MY child! Also gotta check out #7. I could use that all the time!

  2. Some great suggestions! I’d like to check out Klout. I love the Etsy app. I also like Cozi. Helps me keep a running list for groceries and my hubby can also see the same list in his phone. So if I add an item while he’s out buying stuff it updates his app too. Pretty cool. There are other feature but we mainly use the shopping list options :-)

    1. Oooh, I’m going to have to check out Cozi! I love the idea of being able to share my grocery list with the hubs!

  3. I’ve been back and forth between Evernote and OneNote. They both have features I love. I did NOT know that Etsy had an app, though. I might have to check that out.
    p.s. I found your post via “Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop” on Recipes for our Daily Bread.
    p.p.s. Going to check out your Pinterest right now!

  4. Thanks for sharing! I love my podcast app too! And I just FINALLY downloaded Evernote today actually :) can’t wait to dig in. I’ve done a couple of posts on apps as well, so great to find new ones and share :) I love RetailMeNot for finding coupons and PopSugar for quick workouts on the go. Thanks again!

  5. Congratulations on being featured at this weeks Turn It Up Tuesday! I can’t wait to see what you link up this week!
