The 10 Best Apps For Bloggers

Blogging, Social MediaHelene SulaComment

People use their phones to cruise the Internet and view social media apps more than they use it to call or even text. Smart phone apps have become essential in our daily lives. From fitness trackers, social media channels, and so much more, it's easy to get carried away. For bloggers there are some really great apps to include in your toolbox.

The 10 Best Apps For Bloggers

1. Snapchat

In addition to the main apps like Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest, bloggers will find Snapchat is a great tool for showcasing an unfiltered view of their lives. Brands have begun to understand the power of Snapchat, so don't miss out on this awesome tool! See Why Bloggers Need Snapchat. (Follow me, username: helenesula)

2. Evernote

I use Evernote daily to store my blog post ideas and organize information about my blog, my courses, and anything else I have coming up. I love that whatever I type on my phone will also be there when I get to the computer.

3. Mailchimp

Mailchimp has an app! It allows me to check on my newsletter and subscribers directly from my phone. I can check and edit campaigns from the app and even send it out if I want. Sign up for Blog in Between's newsletter right here.

4. Bloglovin'

I use Bloglovin' to organize the blogs I follow into folders. I love how easy the app is to use. You can read and comment on the blogs you love straight from the app.

5. Snapseed

Snapseed is a photo editing tool. It's my favorite to use before I post photos to Instagram. This powerful tool for editing images includes some really cool tricks!

6. Audible

While this might not seem like an obvious tool for blogging, it addresses the fact that most bloggers stay inherently busy — often too busy to read books. Audible allows you to listen to audio books on the go. I "read" or listen, to more books than I ever would if it wasn't for Audible.

7. Hootsuite

Hootsuite is a social media scheduling tool. I use it to share and schedule all my social content. The app allows you to check, edit, and schedule posts from your phone or when you're on the go.

8. Paypal

Most bloggers have to have a Paypal account if they want to be paid on time or work with other bloggers. Having the iPhone (or Android) app allows you to pay on the fly or check into your finances.

9. Instapaper

This is a great way to keep track of useful or interesting content you find online. You can simply save ideas and articles you find interesting.

10. Writeroom

If you ever attempt to seriously write from your phone, you need Writeroom. It provides a distraction free space to write — for your blog or anything else.
