About a year ago or so I made a big change in our lives. I switched to Walmart Family Mobile and the lowest priced unlimited plans. $34.88/month for Unlimited Talk, Text, and Web was like an answer to what we needed. I was tired of my current phone situation and was paying more than I wanted for features I didn’t need. Over a year later, I’m still with Walmart Family Mobile and am thrilled to share that I for the next five months I will be acting as a brand ambassador for a service that I cannot say enough good things about!
This month I want to share a bit about one of the ways I use my Walmart Family Mobile plan and Samsung Galaxy S4 the most, especially as we get closer and closer to the holidays. It’s all about the photos! We’ve already been to the beach and the pumpkin patch so fall is in full swing here!
Best Photo Apps for Moms with Lowest Priced Unlimited Plans
As the weather cools off around here, it means that we have the chance to get out and go more and more. And that means tons of memories being made and photo opportunities popping up. One thing I depend on my phone for is capturing memories.
There are times when I take my fancy camera with me but by the time I have a shot framed the kids are usually on to something else. So I depend on my phone a lot when it comes to taking photos. Having unlimited data and text helps me share all of the photos with everyone I love too. It’s perfect for this time of year and my phone is easily one of the basics I always have with me. It fits in along with an extra diaper, a bottle, and that kind of thing!
So what photo apps do I depend on as a busy mom? Here are seven of my absolute favorites! They are all available on the Android operating system too which means I have them all on my new Walmart Family Mobile Samsung Galaxy S4!
Did I mention that they are all free too?
This photo was taken on my Samsung Galaxy and edited only with the Instagram app!
Instagram is a must have for me when it comes to sharing photos. I’m pretty sure most people I know have it on their phones but in case you don’t, get it! It’s fun to play with. You can use the editing and filters in Instagram on your photos. Or you can use another app to edit and the use the Instagram app to upload it!
This photo was edited using Photofy!
Photofy is my absolute favorite when it comes to adding text and graphics to my photos. I love that it has tons of preset graphic text as well as filters you can apply. You can also create collages in it. This is the one app that I have upgraded to a paid version on because I like it that much.
Photo Grid is my favorite collage maker because it is so easy to use! I probably use it at least 3 or 4 times a week. You simply choose your photos and then you can see them in multiple different layouts. You can also add backgrounds, adjust borders, and even add filters and text! I just put two photos from our trip to North Carolina together the other night to show off C’s sweet and mischievous side!
Pixlr Express is one of the best photo editing apps. It lets you crop, resize, and adjust colors in your photos with ease. You can also apply overlays to your photos and then share them with your friends. When I need more control over my editing, it is one of my favorites.
InstaSize is one of my most recent discoveries and it has made my life so much easier! Sometimes when I’m shooting on the go, I don’t get the best photos for cropping to a square. But I still want to share them! InstaSize lets you upload full size photos ton Instagram which means it is a lifesaver! I don’t have to stress about the cropping anymore!
Flipagram is what I use when I want to animate some of my photos. I recently made a slide show of some of our vacation pictures from back in May. It’s super easy to choose your photos and even add some free music. Then you can crop it to fit on Instagram as a video! Oh and it also has a photo booth type selfie feature which means the kids and I can sometimes be found having a little too much fun!
Mosaic is great if you’re looking to create a photo book from your Instagram photos. The app pulls photos right from your Instagram account so you do need this app if you want to create one of the 7×7 Mosaic books but I love having my Instagram photos in another form!
So it’s pretty clear that my phone is pretty important to me when it comes to capturing memories of all of our family adventures. And being able to upload those photos and share them is when I depend on my Walmart Family Mobile service. I also use my phone to film a lot of the video we use to put together our vlogs at Growing Up Moon. I need plan that helps me to stay connected!
We have quite a bit on our calendar over the next few weeks including a birthday party, Halloween, the Renaissance Festival, and C’s first birthday! So I’ll definitely be depending on my phone and my Walmart Family Mobile plan to help keep me connected and capturing our memories!
If you’re looking for a great way to stay connected, $34.88/month for Unlimited Talk, Text, and Web paired with a smartphone for under $100 is the perfect way to stay connected while on-the-go! You can try phones like the Samsung Galaxy Exhibit Smartphone ($99.88) or Walmart Family Mobile LG Optimus L90 Smartphone ($149.88 on rollback from $179.88) with your plan. Then download some of the best photo apps for moms and see what memories you can collect this fall!
