Top App for TikTok: CapCut
CapCut contains all of the tools you need to create TikToks, Reels, or Shorts, but it’s specifically designed with TikTok in mind. In fact, if you share directly to TikTok the CapCut watermark is removed & it’s uploaded directly into their video editor for final changes. This app has brought my TikTok editing time way down. It could not be easier to create on this platform.
Top App for Instagram: UNUM
UNUM has been my go-to app for years when it comes to previewing your Instagram grid layout. They’ve recently added support for Instagram Reels as well. I store upcoming post photos here so that I can easily locate & arrange them without them getting lost in my camera roll. You can pre-add captions, attach hashtags, & even schedule your posts all from UNUM.
Top App for YouTube: TubeBuddy
Don’t get me wrong; I love YT Studio too, but TubeBuddy knocks it out of the park when it comes to individual video analytics. At a glance you can see how well your most recent videos are performing via views, comments, & likes. Take things a step further by downloading the TubeBuddy extension for Google Chrome to utilize more advanced TubeBuddy tools like their Keyword Explorer, Bulk Processing, & A/B Testing.
Top App for Graphic Design: Canva
Canva is the graphic design app for everyone. They have templates for everything from Instagram Stories, to YouTube thumbnails, & Facebook Cover Photos for content creators. There are also templates for invitations, brochures, & business cards. If you spot some graphic design work on any of my accounts, odds are I made it on Canva.
Top App for Photography: Lens Buddy
If you take most of your own photos like I do, Lens Buddy is a game changer. It’s a simple camera timer app with a big impact. No more running back & forth to your phone each time you want to strike another pose. You can leave the bluetooth remote at home. With Lens Buddy you can set your preferred interval time between shots & get to work!
