App Review: Room For More

Hey guys! I’m super excited about this app review, because this app has solved one of my biggest phone problems! I love the convenience of a smart phone and being able to whip it out and take a picture of anything at a moment’s notice! But the issue that I run into, and that I’m sure a lot of you have too, is a storage one. My phone’s Photos app is overflowing with selfies and pictures of my cats…that’s where Room For More comes in!


ROOM FOR MORE- REVIEWED

This app has seriously been a lifesaver for me! The creator reached out to me to review this app, and my first thought? “Huh. That sounds interesting but it’s probably annoying to use and not very practical…”

I was wrong! This app is the bomb. It stores your photos in your own private cloud, and no on but you can access them. I have so much more space on my phone now!! I know as avid bloggers, a lot of you guys probably have to same issues with phone storage as me, especially in this digital age. So here’s a solution! Here’s what Room For More’s creators have to say about it.

Storage: Never delete a beloved photo or video again. All content is securely stored in your own private cloud, freeing up tons of space on your phone.

Access: Photos and videos can be viewed anytime from any connected phone or tablet, or from any computer via the Room for More website.

Control: You decide who can see your photos and videos, with options to share publicly on Facebook and Twitter or privately with custom Web links.

Retrieval: Back up photos and videos on a computer or external hard drive at the push of a button. Room for More will send you an email with all your content in a .ZIP file.

Privacy: Room for More never sells users’ personal data. It will never snoop on photos, videos or other data to sell ads — or for any other reason.

Quality: All content is stored in original quality, with no limits on file size or video length.

I’m super happy that I got a chance to use this, it’s perfect for me! It’s available for iOS and Android, and if you’d like to test it out, click here to get 6 GB of storage free, courtesy of the kind creators 🙂 I was super happy to be wrong about this app. I think it would be great for anyone who takes a lot of travel photos, or just takes lots of selfies like me haha!


I’d love to hear what you guys think about this! Do any of you use Room For More, or something similar to store your photos? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for stopping by 🙂

Obstacle Workout App Review

Is anyone else out there ready to celebrate Thanksgiving? I know I am! I hate all the guilt that comes with eating everything in sight though, so I try to eat healthy and work out more a few days before it so that my shame and guilt over the massive quantities of pie I consume are somewhat lessened. So when the creator of Obstacle Workout reached out to me, I thought it was perfect to test out! This app has some really interesting features.

Now, I wouldn’t exactly say I’m a fitness buff. I try to work out when I can, but too often it gets pushed to the wayside. That’s why I like apps like this so much! It makes it easy to get a quick floor workout in.


THE GOOD:

This app is really user-friendly! You can create the type of workout you want, and then it takes you through a series of exercises complete with both audio and video instructions!! It’s really useful to have the videos, it makes it so simple to figure out how to do the exercises yourself, I used this in place of my regular floor workout, and it really gave me a tough workout! It’s also nice that it comes with a warm-up and cool-down exercise built in.

THE NOT-SO-GOOD:

To be honest, I was really impressed with this app! Only downside is, it’s only available for iPhones and iPads, so sorry all you Android users :/ It also has an alignment that makes you hold your phone sideways, which I personally find somewhat annoying. It costs just $0.99 in the app store, and there are in-app purchases available.


Overall, I really like this app! I’ll be keeping it on my phone alongside Sworkit for when I need a quick floor workout with really simple instructions (because I’m not the best at following directions, haha)! The great instructional videos are really the biggest plus here, they’re so helpful. I give it 4.5/5 stars! If you like, you can read more about it on their website.

Sworkit Review

sworkit

Happy Friday! Today I want to share with you my new favorite app, Sworkit! I’m completely obsessed with this one. I saw a mention of it on another blog a while ago, and I thought it sounded like a good idea, so I downloaded it to try it out. (Sorry to whoever’s blog it was that mentioned it, I wish I remembered so I could link you!) Anyway, this app is my new workout fixation! I downloaded the free ‘lite’ version, but it has everything I could ask for in a workout app. I’m sure if you were to purchase the full version though, you’d find many more great features!

You can choose from 4 categories for your workout- Strength, Cardio, Yoga, and Stretching. Or, you can choose to press the Fit In 5 Minutes button, which will give you a sampling of different exercises for a 5 minute full workout. Within each category, you can choose to work different parts of your body, like your core, upper body, etc. Once you decide on a workout, you can set how long you’d like to do it for. I love to be able to fit in 15 minutes of yoga before bed!

It shows you how do do each new move and tells you how long to do it for. It even accounts for 30 second breaks! I love this app so much, I don’t think I have any criticisms of it. It’s amazing for getting those quick floor workouts in! After I’ve been sitting down for a while at the computer, I like to get up and use it for 10 minutes of stretching.

What do you think? Do you use Sworkit? What’s your favorite workout app? Let me know in the comments! Have a lovely weekend 🙂

What I Think- The iPhone 6

iphone 6

 Today I’d like to share with you all my take on the latest version of the Apple phone-the iPhone 6. Recently I was due for an model upgrade on my phone plan, and I chose this model after much hemming and hawing! I like having an iPhone over a different brand because I work from an Apple computer, and I like being able to sync my music and photos between the two-it makes things very simple when taking photos on my iPhone that I want to use on the blog. That’s another reason I chose this model, because it’s got a great camera on it for a cell phone, and I can’t seem to stay away from Instagram no matter how hard I try!

I wasn’t expecting to like this phone very much because it’s so much larger than my last one. I’m a fan of smaller ones, because it’s really hard to get these giant phones into the back pockets of my jeans! But I haven’t really minded the extra size on this. It definitely has a much longer battery life than my last one, and that’s always a plus.

It’s so sleek and pretty, I can’t bring myself to put it is a case yet! Although I probably should soon, I’m a little clumsier with my electronics than I’d like to think 🙂 When I do finally get around to getting a case for it, here are my top picks! If any of you have this phone as well, please let me know what you’ve found works well on it! All of these cases are also available for other models and brands of phones.

2.) Another Etsy find, this time from user FieldTrip. This little cactus print is so cute!! Get it here.

3.) How cute is this vintage style camera case? I just can’t stay away from Etsy-this one is from user Afterimages and can be found here.

What do you think? Do you use an iPhone 6? What’s your favorite phone case? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
