Must-Have Apps of 2019


In order to keep up with your social media presence you must have the right tools to do so. Luckily, with the constant flow of new apps being created and improved, the utensils are right at your fingertips. Transforming an Instagram feed or intuitively promoting an upcoming event requires more than just a simple edit or basic text overlay. By downloading the best applications in the App Store, you will be on your way to success.

Producing high quality images is one of the most important aspects of presenting a top-notch social profile. The days of “all natural” photos are over, editing your images to improve even the smallest of details is in. With VSCO, you have the opportunity to take your photography to another level. The app is free for both iOS and Android devices and offers many easy to navigate features. There are multiple presets to choose from and you have the ability to edit the aspects of the photo such as saturation, exposure, clarity, grain, etc. With VSCO you can even save your most used edits as a ‘favorite preset’ to make the overall editing process even faster.

Another helpful editing app to keep on your phone is the Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC application. The editing features are similar on Lightroom as on VSCO except with different preset options and can be used on the desktop (VSCO is going strictly mobile March 2019). For as little as $9.99/month there is an option to upgrade your app that will allow you to enhance the overall experience and image quality. Some of the features that can be part of an upgrade are the backing up of photos, selective adjustments, exceptional editing, and perspective adjustments. Lightroom can even help to save time with the sorting and organizing of images by having the ability to tag objects and people and then separate into different groups.

If you are looking to edit a video rather than an image, then Crop Video is the best app to help make it Instagram ready. The app features the options to position, resize, and rotate the videos. Importing can be done straight from a mobile device camera roll and all qualities are supported, as well slo-mo video. To mix things up and keep the creative juices flowing, you also have the chance to include text, draw on the video, and edit the background.

Transitioning into more organizational applications; UNUM, Unfold, and Google Drive are the top of the line. With UNUM it allows you to plan out your Instagram feed and schedule when you want to post, having set reminders when to shoot it out to your followers. Recently, having a themed and aesthetically pleasing Instagram feed has become more important to followers. Through this free application all the resources to maintain your image will be at your disposal. Along with upholding the balance of your feed, Instagram Stories have started to become a quicker way to push out pictures and information. The other free app is Unfold which will make all the difference with your Instagram stories. Various templates are offered to coordinate just a singular story or even a series of posts that will catch the viewers eye. Finally, Google Drive does not apply specifically to Instagram organization rather it is just a very useful organizer for any and all aspects of one’s life. With Google Drive you can save all types of documents in one, easy to access, place. Information can easily get lost in translation through the back and forth of emails but sharing and maintaining privacy is made simple through shareable links or the inputting of emails to grant access.
