My Favorite Apps

favorite appsHi everyone! I don’t know if this makes me a way too nosy person, but I love seeing what apps other people use and love, so today I thought I would share a few of my top favorites with you! I’ve tried to include a bit of a mixture, so hopefully you will find something new to add to your phone!

– A Beautiful Mess

Without a doubt, the A Beautiful Mess app is my absolute (or should I say appsolute?) favorite to edit my Instagram photos. We all know the struggle of taking a good photo on our phones, but this app has the prettiest filters that make everything look a little better. I’ve been using it for a year, and I’m still obsessed!


For anything related to books, I love my Goodreads app. I can keep up with what my friends are reading, find new releases, and track my own reading progress. You can also use Goodreads on your computer if you aren’t a phone person. Feel free to friend me to keep up with what I’m reading by clicking here!


I’m a big fan of audio books, and love using Audible to listen to them. While I do think it’s a little overpriced, it gets me to get through many more books than I would without it. They have so many options, including new releases, and I love getting to listen to a book while I knit after a long day.

-She Reads Truth

This app is in this list specifically for my Christian readers. With our busy schedules it’s hard to make time to read scripture, but this app makes it simple. You can choose from a ton of different reading plans, and go through different studies in scripture which are a lot of fun. I’m currently going through the sermon on the mount, and have been loving it! They also have a beautiful selection of phone wallpapers to download which I love using.

-Nike Running

I put this app in a little sheepishly, because it’s been way too long since I’ve used it. 😉 In spite of my current lack of consistent exercise, this is a great app to help keep track of your running! I love that is measures distance and time so you can keep track of how your endurance builds!

And that’s it for my favorite apps! What are some of your favorites? I’d love to hear!

  1. I love my Bible app, I love the daily Bible verse it has everyday! I also love Instagram, if that counts, I post all the time! I use the Remember me app for memorizing verses, that helps me because I am terrible at that! I also love the Feedly Reader app for reading web articles and blogs. I also have a Meme generator for making memes which is really fun!

  2. I’ve never heard of A Beautiful Mess, but I just looked it up and it looks like fun! I’m kind of in the Dark Ages and just use Instagram to edit my phone pictures still. I’d say my favorite app is SpotHero, which helps you find cheap parking. It’s not very glamorous, but it’s definitely saved me more than once!

  3. I looooooooove ABM. 🙂 But I find I don’t use it that often. I use Afterlight for the edit… and I occasionally add things to it with ABM. I should do it more though. I love love love the goodreads app. It’s my fave. I love having a quick way to look up books when I am out at the store or library, and also to track progress in a book and my challenge.. see what you all are up to… .ugh it’s so good.

    Aside from Afterlight and goodreads… I definitely play Cinderella Freefall. I’m not a game person… but I do like this when I feel like I need to focus on something else. I also use Cartwheel at Target constantly.. and the Target app. And I use ibotta for rebates. Evernote is my last favorite to share. I never understood the hype.. but it’s brilliant. I have it on my phone and ipad, my home computer and work computer. That way I can keep lists going throughout the day and add to them. It’s wonderful to have it all synced up and organized! 🙂 XO -Alexandra
