I don’t know about everyone else, but I can’t live without my phone. Whether it’s catching up on social media, watching funny cat videos on YouTube or checking my bank balance, I use my phone for pretty much everything and anything. And seeing as there’s an app for pretty much anything these days, I thought I’d share with you all the seven apps you need on your phone.

Mosaico – I don’t know about you, but Instagram is one of my favourite social media networks to use. I love looking through everyone’s pictures and getting to see a snapshot of their life. I also love posting beautiful pictures and spend quite a bit of time planning what to upload. And this app is perfect for that. You can plan your feed, move pictures around and then upload directly onto Instagram.

Pinterest – Another app I find I can spend hours on. It’s a great distraction and I seem to waste hours pinning inspirations for my dream house, handbag collection, show wardrobe… you get the idea!

Evernote – If you’re anything like me, then you’re constantly planning lists in your head of things you need to do. Well I am anyway and this app is a lifesaver. You can write text, capture images, create a to-do this. Plus it syncs to your other devices.

Snapchat – This is my new obsession. I can’t get enough of watching people’s ‘real lives’ through Snapchat. For me Instagram is your filtered life, whereas Snapchat is your real life. And I love the different filters! You can follow me for my ‘real life’ by adding me, username is: stephaniemerry and Amelia is over at: xaxameliaxax!

Banking – Most banks have an app now and for me it’s the easiest and quickest way to see if I can afford another nude eyeshadow palette or the shoes I’ve been lusting after. If you want to stay in control of your finances then you need a banking app on your phone.

Couch to 5k – Having not run for the past 10 years, I downloaded this app just after New Years and it’s been a godsend. It’s aimed at those who need to get off the couch and start running – which was me 8 months ago! Now I can easily run 5k and it’s all thanks to this app.

Bloglovin – As a blogger I could not include this one in the list. For me it’s one of my most used apps and a great way to help me keep up to date with my favourite bloggers and their latest blog posts. Follow xameliax right here, go one, you know you want to.

What are the apps you can’t live without?
