11 Apps to Download for a Creative Weekend
Whether we’re trying out the unusual habits of creative people or finally signing up for that online class we’ve had our eye on for ages, we’re always on the hunt for new ways to supercharge our creativity. This week, we found 11 in the form of these awesome on-the-go apps to download for a creative pick-me-up: Check out our finds below!
1. iA Writer: If your perfect creative weekend involves working studiously on your up-and-coming zombie manuscript, this no-BS writing app is definitely a must. Clean and simple to use, it’s just the thing you need to cut ties with your distractions and binge write.
2. ArtStack: Creativity breeds creativity ― which is why we’re pretty much obsessed with this cool art app. Allowing art patrons to view hundreds of thousands of art pieces and build their own stack (AKA a list of all the artworks they’re living for RN), it’s perfect for finding inspo and supporting your fellow maker.
3. Colordot: Have you ever seen the perfect shade of blue on a retro coffee mug and wished you could capture it forever? How about the sweetest shade of yellow on a sidewalk mural? Now, using your iPhone’s camera, you can save all those IRL colors with this handy app at the ready for inspiration on-the-go.
DL It: $0.99 on iOS
4. Planner5D: Thinking about remodeling the kitchen? This cool app makes it super easy for just about anyone to create realistic home interior designs in 3D, both online and offline.
5. Grid Diary: Journaling is having a moment, and our 12-year-old selves couldn’t be more pleased. Get back into the habit with this innovative and beautiful app ― its diary entries are separated into grids that prompt you to jot down specific memories or events, so it’s a great place to start if you’re rusty.
6. Assembly: You don’t have to be great at drawing to create beautiful art with this nifty app around! It uses a building block approach to creating everything from stickers and icons to scenes and graphics, making you an artiste in the process.
7. TapPainter: Go ahead and tackle painting that accent wall this weekend: Just DL this helpful app first, so you can virtually choose paint brands and color swatches for the perfect painting experience.
DL It: $2.99 on iOS
8. Magisto: We know we should be compiling that summer vacay video already, but complicated video editing software is definitely killing our motivation. Luckily, Magisto is here to do the work for us by automatically turning our photos and videos into sharable stories. Win!
9. Auxy: Take the weekend to work on your sick beats (okay, your soon-to-be sick beats!) with this fun app. Allowing you to tweak sounds and meticulously arrange your track, it’s surprisingly addicting.
10. Font Candy: Crank your Instagram game up a notch by adding adorable text to your photos. Choose from pre-set quotations or create your own with customizable fonts, colors and fun add-ons.
11. Brainsparker: If you’ve ever experienced writer’s block, you’ll know the lengths that some people will go to to rediscover that creative spark. Instead of jumping out of an airplane or taking a freezing cold shower, however, you can simply try downloading this useful app that provides writing and drawing prompts.
