What's on my iPhone? | Favourite New Apps

It's time to have a nosey through my iPhone 6 to see what apps are lurking on there! I've recently downloaded a few new ones, so skipping past the boring weather apps and the obvious social media heroes.... I'll jump straight in at the apps that you may not have downloaded yet. I love discovering new apps to use on my phone and tablet so if anyone has any suggestions please leave me a comment...


For making to do lists and keeping yourself organised. A much more advanced version of Apple 'Notes' where you can sort your lists into folders and tick off tasks as you complete them. The app makes a very satisfying 'ping' sound when you complete something too!


An app to help you achieve your goals! Add up to 5 challenges including how often you want to complete them and Balance will remind you and keep you on top of things. For example I'm trying to get to bed earlier so I have a 'have an early night' task set up for 3 nights a week. You can skip goals or delay them but I find this app keeps me on track.

Photography Apps

I love my photography apps. I prefer the simple, easy to use editing apps and I have nine different ones (including video editing) downloaded on to my iPhone. Aviary, Picfx, InstaCollage, Afterlight, Whitagram, VSCOcam, Hyperlapse, BokehCamFX and PicPlayPost. My favourite ones for editing photos for Instagram are Afterlight and VSCOcam. I can alter and tweak photos exactly to my liking and it's almost like having mini versions of Photoshop installed on my phone. InstaCollage and Whitagram are used to prepare photos for Instagram, or make collages. I don't use these apps all the time but if you don't want to square-crop your images Whitagram is a very quick editing app to solve that.

BokehCamFX is an interesting one. You can add fake bokeh to your images just by tapping on the photo where you'd like a soft 'bokeh' fairy light and you can change the colour and shape of the bokeh. I can't say I've used this one much but it's a fun app and I'd like to think one day I'll a photo to jazz up in this way!

We all know and love Pinterest. I did prefer to use the app on my iPad but now I've upgraded to the iPhone 6 and the screen is sooo much bigger, I find Pinterest looks amazing. It's such a time waster though and I can be lost for a few hours looking at pin boards. 

Flixster is a great app if you're a cinema fanatic. It's possible to set up an account on Flixster and create a 'need to watch' list of new films. I use it to read up on the latest releases, and see what's showing and when in my local cinemas. You can watch trailers and read reviews too!
