I’m on the go pretty often, which means I’m living from my cell phone often as well. Today I’m sharing some of my very favorite apps for iPhone, sorted by category.
Communication & Social
I don’t use a ton of social apps outside of the big 4, but these are helpful.
Free instagram planning and scheduling tool. Has neat drag-and-drop interface.
I use this to communicate with a lot of my out-of-country pals. It’s slowly being replaced by facebook messenger.
Food, Health, & Shopping
I use this to track meals and calories. Syncs with my Withings app (see below).
Ok, so this is pet food, but we use this app with it’s matching auto feeder to feed our cat.
App syncs with my Withings Activité Steel fitness tracker to record activity, sleep, etc.
Games & Family
A very simple app that allows you to create bubbles by tapping or dragging your finger, then popping them as well.
In this game you use your finger to tap, throwing metal balls at glass sculptures. Various objects get in your way, so you have to smash them. A hit for adults and kids alike.
Perfect community for finding a reliable and trustworthy sitter when you need one. I’ve found many favorites through this app! Get $35 off with my link.
Entertainment & Tech
App we use with our security cameras to keep an eye on the house.
Transfer files between my computer and phone.
We use a Roku with our tv, this app lets me turn my phone into a remote, because who wants to get up to change the channel?
Controls our music and speakers in the house.
Buying & Selling
Bye! Post your stuff and someone comes to get it. Users are vetted via facebook or google.
Buy and sell clothing in a fashionable community. Shop my closet here.
Right meow, Amazon!

Photo editing tool. I use this for every single one of my instagram photos, read about how I edit Instagram photos here.
Travel & Transportation
For obvious reasons. Be sure to download the language pack while you have access to wifi.
A private valet. They meet you at your destination and park your car in a contracted garage for you. You can have it washed, or topped-off with gas. When you’re ready, they bring it to you as well. Get $20 off with the code “JESSICA149”.

They will drive your car for you, like a DD or personal chauffeur. You can even have them take your car for service. Sign up here.

Though I know their downfalls, I use it more than other on-demand ride services. Get your first ride free with the code “h9p0h”.
Though I hate to have to use it, this app can be a lifesaver for navigating traffic-congested areas.
