11 Killer Apps & Tools for 2019

11 Killer Apps & Tools



According to TechCrunch, Instagram is growing by leaps and bounds with more than 1 billion monthly users now. With Instagram Stories, IGTV, Instagram Live, Instagram ads and more, Instagram is becoming a huge player in the social media world and one to take note of for 2019 and beyond! 

Facebook Messenger

Facebook Messenger is an excellent tool to keep in touch with your sphere through personal one-to-one messages. Stand out from the crowd by sending voice messages using Facebook Messenger and explore using Facebook Messenger ads to target your audience in a unique way.


Looking for an awesome and easy (and beautiful) printed book? This is a great app on your phone that you can use to create simple photo books—what a fun a and unique gift for your buyers or sellers. 

Dropbox & Google Docs

These two apps have been a favorite of mine for years. There is no easier way to share documents, collaborate with a virtual team, share large video files or even create your content and social media calendars. Simple and easy! 

Videoshop & Videorama

Video is here to stay and these are two of my favorite apps for editing video whether it is square, vertical or horizontal. Edit your videos easily, add text and even your logo quickly. 


If you love Instagram Stories but get frustrated with the 15 second limit—check out Storeo. This app allows you to create vertical video with your phone and then it saves it into 15 second increments on your phone so you can easily upload it to Instagram Stories.  


This has become one of my favorite go-to app for scheduling Instagram content. Use the desktop or mobile device to schedule Instagram content. Free up some of your time by scheduling some of your Instagram content—this allows you to be more “in the moment” but also consistent. I also love that you can easily save hashtags versus always retyping them same ones! Lastly, if you would rather use Instagram on a desktop than your phone, you will love Later for this! 


This is an awesome site and app to search for stunning stock photos. No cheesy photos here. Search by theme like “holidays” or “front door” and then you can use the photos for graphics you’d like to create for social media. 


This is a great app to create longer form beautiful Instagram Stories. This is especially a beautiful app to showcase multiple photos and create collages with your Instagram Stories.
