We are no strangers to apps in today’s world. Especially in 2020 (shout out to the food delivery services)! We’ve probably used them more than ever during this extended time at home. (I don’t know where I’d be without Pinterest and Youtube.)
So since our phones are even more essential, I thought it would be great to share what apps I’ve been using the most and will DEFINITELY bring with me into 2021!

If you haven’t heard of Lightroom Mobile, it’s a photo editing app by Adobe. Don’t think photoshop. You don’t use this app to change your waist size or cover blemishes, you use it to adjust lighting, detail, shadows, and more!
I love it because of the presets. (Preset is a fancy term bloggers and photographers gave to “filters”.) It’s for one-click editing of your favorite photos. Perfect for everyday life to make sure your memories look as amazing as they feel.
My “go-to” preset is the Dainty Darling preset by Honey Soul Shop on Etsy! Now, be very careful when buying your own! Some presets only work with the paid version of Lightroom, but there’s plenty to choose from for the free version (that’s what I use btw). Just make sure it works with lightroom mobile.

Some of my edits using presets:
One of my new year goals is to get moving every day. I know devoting my day to fitness isn’t realistic, but I want to prioritize exercise for my physical and mental health.
This app (Workouts Women) has been awesome for three reasons: it puts the workout together for me, it has animated visuals so I know what to do, AND it selects music for me! Takes away all the stress of planning a workout!
The Daily 7 option is amazing too. It’s a quick workout set up to help you get moving for a short period of time. You may not have 30 minutes to move, but I can bet you’ve got 7! You can even add it to Siri for easy voice command access!
Like most apps, there are free options but even more with the paid version. I haven’t invested in the paid version yet, but I plan to. Lucky for us, it’s 40% off right now!
My other goal for this year is to read my Bible more. This app is great because you can read the Bible on it as well as a short devotional. You can create study groups, add notes, highlight verses, and set daily reminders too!
I know this might sound like self-promotion since I’m a blogger on LTK.it, but it’s not! I used the app long before I became a blogger. I love that you can search for specific items and see them on real people! Since “influencers” usually share stuff they’ve recently found, your feed will be geared toward the current time of year. You can even find people in your size and region to make shopping easier!
Another plus is that the app will sometimes offer exclusive sale prices and discount codes only available in-app!
Klarna is a shopping app that allows you to make 4 easy interest-free payments on any purchase, in-store or online!
I always use it when I buy a large haul of clothes online and I’m not positive they will fit well or if I will even like them. I hate having money tied up on clothing I may not even keep! This app lets me spend a little at first and once I’ve made my returns my total will be adjusted based on what I keep.
