Apps

My favorite apps for social media planning, stories designs, and photo editing on the go

Plann

Instagram & Facebook Planning App


I use Plann to plan my Instagram grid and posts. It is a free app that has a desktop version you can connect to so you can type out your captions ahead of time (which is super handy!)


It also has really amazing analytics if you upgrade to the paid version, but you can do quite a lot with the free version.

Canva

Post & Stories Design App



I use Canva to create beautiful designs for my stories and for my client's posts.


You can also use it to create presentations, pdf freebies, and so much more!


It is free to use but if you have custom brand elements like fonts, logos, and colors you'd like to save, the paid version is well worth the money!

Lightroom

Photo Editing App


I use the Lightroom app to edit photos on the go. You can even create & save "presets" (aka custom filters) to help you create a cohesive feed!


It is free to download and use on your phone. You do have to pay for the desktop version, but if you aren't a photographer, it isn't really necessary--the free phone app will get you very far!
