Tadaa: I have an older iPhone, but thanks to this app, I can
still enjoy the depth effect of Portrait Mode by applying a
targeted blur to my photos.
Unsplash: If you’re a small business owner or social media marketer, you should be familiar with Unsplash. The
app is a great resource of professional photos that you can
download for free at will.
Google Drive: No entrepreneur should be caught without
Google Drive. While many use Dropbox, Google Drive’s
app is much more user-friendly and universal.
Snapseed: From minor lighting adjustments to targeted
tools that let you make those highlights pop, Snapseed
makes photo editing quick and easy while retaining quality.
Unfold: This is a great app for anyone who wants to take
their Instagram Stories to the next level. Unfold provides
beautiful, easy-to-use templates for you to pop photos and
videos into, then seamlessly push them to Instagram.
VSCO: This staple among photo editing apps has been
on the market for a long time providing tons of great premade filters and a publishing platform to share those photos on. I love it for more vibey shots.
myMail: If you’re anything like me, you’re glued to three
or four email accounts. myMail makes managing multiple
inboxes easy, plus, it’s free! You can plug in your various
accounts and check whatever you need from wherever.
Later: This scheduling app allows you to draft and
auto-post to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Pinterest
for free. I love Later over other schedulers because of its
media gallery, which is integrated cross-device.
