5 Fandom Friday: Smart Phone Apps I Cannot Live Without

I am on my iPhone a LOT.  Probably more than I should be.  What I mostly use it for is taking pictures and sharing them.  I cannot get enough of that!  Here are the apps that get the most play on my phone and take up all my time :)
1.  Instagram.  As a photographer, Instagram is the community I never knew I always wanted.  I find inspiration there everyday and have made some lasting friendships.  Instagram is a great way to push yourself to be creative daily.  I've even shared my love of Instagram via the Instagram Tag from Super Space Chic!

2.  Afterlight.  Afterlight is an app that easily helps you enhance and edit your photos.  This is the perfect companion app to Instagram and I never publish a photo without it.  At only .99 cents I have gotten more than my money's worth.
3.  A Beautiful Mess/Little Moments.  I use A Beautiful Mess and Little Moments app when I want to spread cheer.  Two other photo editing app, both apps let you add text, borders and doodles to your photos allowing you to share them across multiple social media sites.

4.  Twitter.  I do not know where I would be in blogging without Twitter.  Twitter is where I have made many friends, am able to promote my work and connect with my readers in a way that one small comment on my blog cannot.  Twitter let's you find people you wouldn't be able to connect with because of distance or a busy schedule.

5.  Guitar Tuna.  When I need a little break from blogging, I take some time to myself and play the guitar.  Guitar Tuna helps me tune my guitar and even has games to help you practice.  Have a different stringed instrument, Guitar Tuna helps tune bass, banjo, ukulele and more!

So what are your favorite apps?!  I cannot wait to hear!  Share your links in the comments below or link me in Twitter and I'll RT!  AND........

Here is the NEXT portion of our 5 Fandom Friday posts!  Hope you are all enjoying yourself!  I sure am!  I LOVE waking Friday morning to all your tweets!  I get my coffee and settle in for some reading!!  Keep up the great work nerds!!

  3. Oh! I love this list! In mine, I deviated a bit because I sort of hate my smart phone, but Twitter would definitely have made it otherwise. I'm also so excited for the new 5 Fandom Friday prompts! I can't wait to see what you have for February and March when the time comes!

  7. Yay for more Fandom 5! Totally agree about Instagram and Twitter. A Beautiful Mess almost made it to my list too, but I thought I should post more than just photo-editing apps, lol.

  11. I've been looking for a decent photo editor, so far the ones I've tried I don't care too much for. Hopefully Afterlight will please me! The two #3's you listed remind me of Studio+ but with cuter layouts. May need to snag those as well.

    1. I've been doing the FMSphotoaday challenge for a long time now and I LOVE that it is integrated into the app. Makes it super easy! xx

    2. I've been doing it for awhile now too. It's actually the main reason I downloaded the app. I love that I can even set a reminder. I do about 3-4 photo a day challenges everyday. One of them is one I made myself but it's still fun. Lol

  15. I'm a little bit too obsessed with Instagram and can't help but check it first thing in the morning and last thing at night. But it is just so beautiful?! x x

  16. I forgot about Afterlight for a while there, since it wasn't available on Android for the longest time. Now it is! Woot!
    (I also like VSCO for filtering and polishing certain photos).
