The Apps You Need to Know in 2019

One of the best gifts you can give yourself in the new year is a detox.

Though a food and alcohol detox is great (I’ll be doing a detox post soon), I mean giving your phone a detox, too. You probably have so much stuff on your phone you don’t need especially now that phones have so much storage these days. Apps you downloaded for one thing but haven’t opened in ages, old screenshots of directions, funny memes, or contacts of people you don’t remember… a cellphone detox will feel great and no better time to do it than now.

So give yourself an hour or so and purge and delete all the old things in there to make room for a new year- you’ll be happy you did!

Once you have a clean slate, it’s time for some app upgrades! After deleting what was no longer of use to me, I gathered a list of apps that I’m currently really loving, some are new finds and some are old favorites, but they’re all the apps you need to know for 2019 that have made the cut on my phone. 😉

For Photo Editing:

VSCO
A total classic. It has some of my favorite filters and tools to edit photos. Everyone on the CINCteam uses it and especially love adding a little grain to our Instagram photos. Some great filters are the HB filters!

Snapseed
This app is great if you need to play around with the lighting of your photo! It also has some chic polaroid frames to play around with and is a quick and easy way to edit photos.

For Family Stuff:

FamCal
Keeping track of everyone can get hectic so this app is great for keeping it all in order. It keeps everything organized! From calendars to a shared to-do list- it’s really helped streamline everything for our family.

For Me Time:

Headspace
This is an old favorite and a new app all at the same time! I used it pretty often a few years ago and ended up deleting it off my phone for some reason. I’ve re-downloaded it and I’ve fallen in love with it all over again. It has guided meditations and is great for beginners and really great for relieving stress.

For Photos:

Snapchat
Okay, is it just me or does Snapchat still have the BEST filters? I use snapchat to take selfies and videos all the time!

Huji Cam
This app is so much fun to use. It basically takes your photos as if they’re on an analog film camera. It even has the light flares and date stamp!

Free Prints
This is a new find that I can’t wait to try out. I found out about it through our photographer, Karla, who totally swears by it! You can order up to 1000 photos a year, and all you have to pay for is shipping and handling. I can’t WAIT to use this!

For Work:

Slack
I know I’ve talked about Slack a few times before, but honestly, my team and I are still obsessed with it! It keeps all of our conversations, project discussions, Chriselle Lim Collection, The Chriselle Factor editorial calendar, video team ideas, overall business plans, etc. all organized in their own separate threads and folders. To make sure it’s not all work with no play, we also have our ‘Shits and Giggles’ thread which is basically a huge group chat where we share funny photos and memes constantly! Kind of similar to our in-office shade jar.

Do you guys have an app suggestions? Let me know down below!
