Tools for creatives: iPhone Apps


Hey! It’s been awhile hasn’t it? I’m still here, just working like crazy on some fun projects. Though I haven’t been here blogging too much I have been over on instagram sharing more bits of my life and day-to-day. I thought this would be a great time to brush the dust off my blog and share my favorite apps with you! And not just photo apps either. 🙂

Scanner Pro – This app was recommended by Jessica Hische at Circle Conference last year and I cannot get enough of it. It’s amazing for scanning in lettering and it automatically syncs with your Dropbox account so I can just scan it in and go to dropbox from my desktop and it’s already there. I love it! It’s also useful for scanning in receipts for my business and allows you to sync it to a specific folder on your dropbox as well.

Teux Deux – This is by far one of my favorite productivity apps on my phone. I love that it syncs with my account on my desktop and that I can create and label tons of lists either for a specific day or just a general list. You can also set recurring to-do’s which is great for setting reminders for specific bills, writing out blog posts etc.

Postmates – Okay, totally out of the norm for me but I love this app/service. Postmates is essentially a delivery service for pretty much anything. Need some groceries? Want someone to pick up something specific from the Apple store for you? Want lunch from your favorite restuarant but don’t want to put pants on? Postmates has been my favorite for delivering dinner on nights when I’m jamming on a project and don’t want to step away to cook. It’s not available in every city so I’d check to make sure it’s in yours. You can use my invite code for a $10 delivery credit: mj9l

Snapseed – This is easily one of my favorite editing apps for my iphone photos. I downloaded it a long time ago and couldn’t figure it out at first but once you understand how to use it, you will love it! Essentially, I bring all of my photos into this app to turn up the brightness, bring down the contrast and saturation and sharpen my images. I’ve noticed when trying to do this in other photo apps they turn out grainy and the quality seems off, this app definitely keeps things crisp.

VSCO Cam – After adjusting brightness and saturation in Snapseed I’ll bring it into VSCO Cam and use one of their filters. Some of my favorite filter packs are the Limited Edition Collection, The Minimalist Collection and the Aesthetic Series which are all available to download in their shop.

Those are my faves for my phone! Stay tuned for some favorite desktop apps I use frequently on the next Tools for Creatives. xx
