Blogging can sometimes feel like a full time job. With the amount of social media and the need to make sure that you are reaching your readers across various platforms it can be time-consuming to say the least. And sure there are sites like Hootsuite that definitely help with that. Sometimes you want to have a bit of a personal touch with what and how you post. For me this has meant often times editing pics on the go on my iPhone. So today I want to share with you the three apps I have used on almost a daily basis. These apps help me to customize my content across my Instagram, Tumblr, and Twitter pages respectively.
1. Typic Pro
. This app for me was a bit of a revelation. I often have nails of the day pics that I only post o my Instagram. These photos are generally taken really quickly right before bed or right before I head out the door for work, so I don't have time to sit down and edit them the way I would photos for the blog. At .99 I think this app is a steal and worth every penny. It allows you to do all of the things other photo apps allow as far as filters go, but it also allows you to add text and customize it with 87 font styles to choose from. Typic Pro also offer 162 different design elements that allow you to change the size, opacity and add shadow to your text. It also comes with cool frames to add to your pics. You can also moveand rotate your text to fit exactly where you want it to in the pic. This feature is what I use the most for adding watermarks to my Instagram photos.

2. Typic Free
. If you are not ready to drop coins on the paid version of Typic there is a free version to try. This version is more limited as far as choices in fonts but you still have a great selection to choose from and the option of purchasing fonts individually. I used this version for quite awhile before upgrading.
3. Photo Grid
. This app has been a lifesaver for me. I promote my blog posts via Tumblr and Instagram and I always like to re-work the photos to keep things interesting for those who follow me over various social media sites. Photo Grid allows me to do this. And it's free! There is of course a paid version but the free version works just fine. If you are okay with seeing a few ads at the top of the screen then the free version should work just fine for you. Photo Grid gives you the option to create videos, collages and and edit single photos. I mainly use it to create collages when I post my Inspired by Fashion posts or if I merely want to show two pics of nail art. You can also add backgrounds, stickers, or change the ratio of photos. You can also choose from over 300 different layouts.
