I’m a multi-tasker and I try to get a lot of things done in a short amount of time. At any time, you can find me swooping through chores, my computer, my phone at the same time. It’s not the best way to work, but it’s just how my brain responds to tasks.
Like most people, my phone plays an integral role on my day-to-day life, it goes far beyond simply being a way to communicate. I can run my life off of it through various apps and functions. I was (and still is) one of the high achieving perfectionists that often has emotional meltdowns due to comparisons and perceived “lack of time”
One of the ways I have streamlined my work and productivity is through a few taps and websites. So, if you’re looking for tips on being more productive, you’ll want to read this post. As a content creator, it’s only natural for me to turn to apps whether it’s for photograph edits, writing tools or development milestones. Here’s a list of my favorite apps for content creation;
CANVA — This app is a billion times easier to make social media images than in PowerPoint. You can design with millions of stock photographs, vectors and illustrations. You can even upload your photos, edit your photographs using preset filters or get advanced with photo editing tools. Trust me, you’ll never be stuck for choice. You an also access a great selection of fonts, perfect for every design. I even create content for my Instagram story using this app. Just sign up and create an account and you’re good to go.
PAGES — I use Pages app all the time to write first drafts of all my blog posts and articles. One of the things I’ve learned about myself is I would rather sit down at my computer to edit collective posts and Pinterest images thank sit for an hour straight thinking of the right words to put together. And I’ve challenged myself to write as much as I can from my editorial scheduler then I email it to myself by exporting it to a word document. You can use the Pages app for just about any writing, assignments or outlines. I definitely it over Notes app that’s already existent in most phones and Microsoft word. It’s just very easy to export and work from.

PINTEREST— Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. I use pin boards on the app to plan and organize pictures I either want to recreate or use for a blog post even more, a phone wallpaper…yeah! Call me vain if you would
Fun facts; 35% of the pictures on my picture gallery, are all from Pinterest.
Best of all, you can browse pin boards created by other people. Browsing pin boards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.
ADOBE LIGHTROOM MOBILE — Repeat after me; “nothing beats Lightroom”. The beauty of the app for me is that I can use my already created presets on any photo and upload them right away to my social media accounts. It just works like Adobe Lightroom app on desktops. If you have already mastered photo editing through Lightroom then this app is a breeze.
INSHOT — One of my favorite video editing applications asides Filmora. Filmora which is quite complex when it comes to speed and usage makes me settle for Inshot which I have grown fond of. It’s an all-in-one editing app for videos and images. You can make changes to your videos, photos and create collages within the app. There’s a range of editing tools that help you change the appearance of your media as well as combine videos and images. I’ll give Inshot a 10/10.
YOUTUBE — There’s practically no tutorial you need you won’t be able to find on this platform. Everyone of us has this app on our mobile devices and make use of it almost everyday, video sharing and streaming and uploading is the talk of the day on this app. Think about what it is called; YOU-TUBE. “picture you getting down in a picture tube, like you lit the fuse” — Godzilla. It can give you any video you want. Music videos, interviews, tutorials, at one touch of a button. I suggest, let YouTube take your mind where it lets it…
