Better filters and editing software help to make a better social media presence. Industry Standard founder, Nicole Najafi, stays on top of her social media using this app to edit photos. For entrepreneur, Puno Dostres, who depends on VSCO filters, says, "I really hate carrying around the MKII now. It’s so heavy. I’ve been just using my iPhone 7 Plus and a Canon G7X for vlogging."

Filmmaker Natalie Fält says, "Some of the programs that make my work possible are Final Draft for writing screenplays and Google Drive for sharing and archiving work for myself and my crew." This is an essential app for anybody who needs more space or needs to share files with coworkers or collaborators. There's a reason why filmmakers Abby Pucker and Natalie Fält use them for working on projects since it backs up files and allows for easy sharing.

Clue is a much more reliable method for tracking menstrual cycles than using a calendar. It allows users to input personal data including pain, mood, fluid, sexual activity, and other notes.

Quartz's news app puts the entire global economy in your pocket. It's an ongoing conversation about the news, sort of like texting. Producer Abby suggests that “It’s more business focused and do a good job of meeting their audience at or above their level. I never feel like things are dumbed down, but rather, concise and parsed into manageable amounts of high level information.”
