It’s All About that App

2015-02-18_8-24-28Apps are probably one of my favorite things, and I’m always searching for new apps to try out.  The problem is weeding through the endless supply of apps to find exactly what you are looking for.  Lucky for you, I’m an app-aholic, and I test out a ton of apps, and am now curating the best of the best on my Pinterest boards!

The problem with writing a “top 10 productivity apps” post, is that it can easily and quickly become outdated.  With the Pinterest boards I can keep them up to date with the greatest apps I’m finding.  Here’s the other amazing thing about curating app boards on Pinterest.  Right now, it’s only possible with iOS, but I’m sure Android will be following along soon.  

When you are browsing my app boards in the Pinterest app on any iOS device, there will be a nifty “install” button at the top of the pin, so you can install the app right away!  


Again, this is only currently working with iOS, but I’m already creating my Android boards so that when Pinterest updates the app to include Android I’ll already have the boards set up!  You can still look through the Android boards and the pin should take you right to the play store to install the app, so it’s really only one extra step.  Most of the Android and iOS boards will have the same apps, but I needed to separate them out so that it will take you to the right app store.  Just pick the board with the platform you are on, and start browsing!

I’m so excited to show you all the great apps I use on a daily basis!  Make sure to follow my profile on Pinterest so you can be up to date as I add more categories of app boards! I’ve started you out with the two most popular in my book…
