There are loads of photo apps in the app stores, but which are the best? Honestly…I don’t know, but I do know which I love the most!

1. Little Moments – £1.49

In 2014 I started my first Photo A Day (PAD) organised by Fat Mum Slim …unfortunately I’m a bit rubbish at remembering things like that so I well and truly failed. Undeterred, I gave it another bash in January 2015 using the Little Moments App and got through the whole month, YAY!! It’s super simple to use, you can either use the app to take the photo or use it to import a previously taken photograph, which is what I do. From here you can crop, make adjustments, add text, quotes, designs and filters as well as save it to your camera roll, post to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter or send via SMS.

If you wish to follow the PAD you can see the daily prompts and turn on notifications so you get gentle reminders!

2. A Beautiful Mess – 79p

I don’t have much to say about this app, it’s still on my phone but it’s a little redundant now I have the Little Moments App as I always use that one. That said, if you don’t want to spend £1.49 on an app but are ok with spending under a quid, this app is perfect! You can make collages or add  a single photo, from there you can add doodles, text, phrases (a lot are paid extras).  


MOLDIV is great for editing on the go, creating collages and beautifying your images if you wish to do so!

4. Google Photos

It’s no good taking lots of photographs and not backing them up!! I haven’t been using Google Photos long but it’s super simple to use and backs up my photos automatically to my Google drive account which has a huge 30GB of free space.

And well, that’s it!! Once I find something I love I don’t tend to wander from it so I only use a handful of apps for everything on a daily basis! Sorry Android users, I’m not sure if these apps are available for the same price nor can I rate them as I do not know if the functions are the same.

What are your favourite photo apps? I’d love to know! Leave me a comment below!
