My new smartphone: What are your favorite apps? (And, yes! I'm on Instagram!)

Well, friends, it's quite the big day for me! One word: New smartphone! My faithful Blackberry served me well for some three years, but it was time to move on up in the technological world. Getting a new phone is big for me; I mean, you all know about my tenuous relationship with change.

But! I'm jumping in -- or, I'm trying to, at least. I'm finally catching up with the rest of the universe and joining Instagram. You can follow all my adventures here (my IG is melissablake81), and I'm so excited to probably get addicted to it.
My new Samsung Galaxy smartphone is all shiny and pretty, but other than Instagram, I still have it programmed to all the factory settings. I feel a bit lost and overwhelmed (is that how people felt when the Internet first came along?). There's just so much you can do on these phones; it's pretty wild. I'd love to add some fun apps, and would love to hear your recommendations. Which ones are your favorite? Which ones do you use most often? Thanks, and I'll see you on Instagram, friends! xoxo

P.S. OH! And don't forget to let me know your IG so I can follow you!! :)


  1. Congrats on the new phone! I am sure you will get the hang of it in no time - that's exactly how I felt when I first got my IPhone.. Now I am a pro at it :-)

    I LOVE Instagram! I have to say, that is a site I visit SEVERAL times a day! Other than that (and I'm not sure if these are JUST for IPhone, so I apologize if they are) Pinterst is a good app, Draw Something is fun to play & there are some good ones to make some money like Field Agent (where you do price audits at local stores - I've been an agent for less than a year and have made over $100 in paypal cash!)

    Enjoy your new phone!

  2. Those sounds awesome! thanks for the recs!

  3. I can tell Instagram is going to be my new addiction already!

  4. Hooray! Welcome to the dark side of addictions! Can't wait to see your IG photos!

  5. Followed you on IG. Mine is extrachunky.

  6. Following! It's seriously so addicting! Haha.

  7. Enjoy your new smart phone! I LOVE Instagram too! Magshorty is my user name.

  8. Yay! I followed you on Instagram, I'm with username Siniann there :)

    I have Samsung Galaxy S2, so old model. I am afraid that soon our story together is coming to the end, its heating up so badly and bugging. I am thinking of the new Nexus phone.

    My favourite apps are of course Instagram, Feedly to read blogs,Spotify,Google Keep for notes, and Camera ICS+ :)

  9. Congrats to the latest addiction ;)

    You´ll love instagram, i tell ya! It is a great source. I follow you already - my IG is @spunkyrella.

    If you like foodporn make sure to follow @wakeuphealthy - this helped me to start my day with much healthier breakfast options ;)

    Other Apps I do love are PicFx and Beautiful Mess which are kick-ass photo editing apps. I do have an iPhone but I believe they have Android options too!

    Have fun!


  10. Ooh, your new phone is awesome, Melissa! Aside from Instagram I'm a HUGE fan of Mani Diaries {which is basically like Instagram, but only for nail polish and manicures}. :)

  11. Whoa!! So many cool apps...thanks, friends! These should definitely keep me busy for awhile. :)

  12. You seem to be pretty hooked on your smartphones and its apps. What’s your latest favorite? What can you recommend? If you love Instagram, maybe you’ll love Vine too. It's true that there are a lot you can do with smartphones, so take care of it! – Mary, TelcoWorld
