Ever since the beginning of smart phones, tablets etc were around I think I jumped into pretty deep water with the whole app thing. Always having things recommended to me and downloading whatever looked good. 

Over the years I’ve slowly dwindled down the list, added and removed and mourned the loss of apps no longer available. 

I feel like whenever I pick my phone up I’m constantly going from app to app and checking what’s going on in the world. Each time I see one of my friends or talk to my husband it’s “Have you heard about this app?” I swear all I talk about is my son, food and apps. Is that such a bad existence? It may be a bit boring for those around me though. Sorry y’all. 

As you may know, I’m all about lists, so, here are my top 5 apps and why. 

1. Instagram

I probably don’t really need to explain this one BUT I will anyway. I love, love, love Instagram. It is so much fun. It’s the easiest way to share what’s going on in your life by taking cute pics or creating word art. Instagram is quick and snappy and a great way to follow anyone you like (without being a stalker) 👍

2. A Beautiful Mess

I have only recently come across A Beautiful Mess but it is SO MUCH FUN! 


Very easy to use. You can edit photos, create collages, put in emojis, borders, text. It really feels endless. And then they get saved straight to your camera roll OR you can share them directly to your favourite social media apps (like Instagram!) I spend a lot of time using A Beautiful Mess. 

3. Stocard  

Another one that I’ve only recently stumbled across. If you’re the kind of person that says yes every single time a sales assistant asks “Do you have a loyalty card?” Then this is a MUST HAVE app for you.  A handy dandy place for all your loyalty cards. 

It can take a little bit of time to add in all your cards but it all depends on how many store loyalty cards you have. Once this is done, it’s super easy to use, doesn’t bulk up your purse AND it tells you offers and gives you an option to view the current catalogue. Winning!

4. Enlight

Enlight is another app that allows you to edit and create fun types of photos but I feel like this one has a bit more choice rather than just your standard edit with filters type of deal. Not that I don’t like the ease of that because I totally do. 

You can also get totally pro with it and adjust light, contrast, shadow, exposure etc levels. 

5. Ovia 

This one is a little girly, of course, but it is very helpful if you use it properly. This app is super detailed to help you track ovulation, diet, weight, vitamins, moods and the list goes on. The app also reminds you to enter your details about the day and sends you an email with a report as well. These notifications can be turned off but if you’re rather forgetful, leave them on and you’ll never leave a day without a data entry.  I found this helped heaps when I was getting back on track after having Curtis and I know it’ll help when my husband and I decide to have another baby. 
Let me know what kind of apps you like using. Either comment on this post (click the title and comment below) or follow me on Instagram and comment. Don’t forget to use the #handmadefromtheheart 

Have a wonderful weekend!
