There's no denying I'm a bit of a tech geek. When it comes to technology I'm a big fan, whether it's making lists or learning to meditate I'll be using my tech where I can. Today I'm going to be sharing 9 of my favourite iPhone apps (not sure which ones are available on Androids sorry!).

First up is Afterlight. This is the app I use to edit all of my instagram photos. I like to use the same app as I'm a bit of a perfectionist so the fact that all my instagram snaps have some kind of theme to them please me greatly. Next is AnyDo which is great if you're a lover of lists like me. It's a pretty basic (free) app that allows you to separate your to-dos into jobs for today and tomorrow, as well as ones further into the future. Once you have completed the job you simply swipe and it disappears. Simples. I am a huge fan of the Bloglovin app, which since it's redesign is actually quite stunning. I find this is the best way to keep track of blog posts I need to read, and allows me to browse through a range of different blogs depending on if I'm fancying anything from food to fashion. 

CarTunes is a staple for both me and my dad, it is a much more aesthetically pleasing than the music app that comes built in to apple products. The reason I like this so much is due to the minimal design. No more tiny buttons all over the screen, you are shown the album cover, the title, artist and name of the album as well as how far through the song you are. The clever thing about this app is that it themes the colour of the timings to match the colour of the album colour. Just something small but I really love this app. Next up is Collect which I mentioned in my 'Recent Lifestyle Favourites' a couple of weeks ago, and it's definitely worth another mention here. This app allows you to collect all of your photos in one place, you simply upload one for each day (all the photos stay private to your phone and don't get shared with anyone) so that at the end of the month you can have a visual summary of what you've been up to. March was the first month I completed as I discovered the app in mid feb, but I can't wait to keep going with it and be able to look back at my year in photos. 

Crossy Road is so addictive I don't know if I should be telling you about it, it's basically just a chicken hoping across the road avoiding vehicles, but if you're anything like me it will provide you with a lot of entertainment. For those who fancy trying mediation Headspace is the app for you. This helps guide you through the beginning steps of mediation, and has been something I've been loving doing first thing in the morning. The first 10 sessions are free but there's nothing to say you can't listen to these over and over again! Obviously I'm a massive fan of Instagram, I mean who doesn't love seeing pictures of everything from pinterest worthy nails to delicious burgers in one place?! Last but not least Snapchat is one of my favourite apps this year so far. If you fancy seeing what I get up to then add me 'katesnapsxo'.
