If you’re feeling rushed off your feet you’re not alone – many of us barely have the time to brush our hair, let alone sit down at a work station to write for hours on end. With the world becoming increasingly fast paced, bloggers have to be savvier with their time, whether that means writing in the queue at Tesco or updating your social media accounts on the school run.

Fortunately, modern technology has adapted to fit in with our mobile lifestyles, and there are a whole host of apps out there to help you manage the 24/7 task of blogging.  From virtual notebooks to dictation software, your blog doesn’t have to suffer because you’re busy.

Here are seven on the go apps we love.

Adobe Photoshop Express

This handy app is basically Photoshop for your iPhone or iPad. Whilst there are a number of deluxe versions, the free version has all the features any blogger could wish for. With 20 filter options and the ability to change contrast, exposure, highlights, shadows, temperature, and tint, as well as crop or rotate images, you can easily create professional looking photos on the move.

Writer

Find it hard to write with distractions? Writer could be perfect the app to help you craft posts on the go. In essence, it’s a basic notebook app, which allows you to freely express your ideas on a blank page. The ‘Focus Mode’ fades everything except the current three lines of text, helping you to concentrate. You can also view file properties such as word count.
