Prior to joining as staff for the Geek Girl Pen Pals Club, the technology I used was pretty basic. Of course I was on most of the social media sites and I relied heavily on email, but that was the extent of the sites and apps I used. But then I was introduced to the world of Dropbox, Gmail Drive, Fotor, and Asana. My technology skills have been forever changed.
These are the top apps I can't live without:
Dropbox has become my best friend. Not only can I save and find graphics in my account for both my Sparklegirl and IGGPPC needs, but it's my back up for my photos that I take on my phone. So when I'm out and about and I need to upload a graphic to a social media site, I can just open my Dropbox app, search for it and save it to my phone.
Messenger is like texting but instead it contains all my chats I have going on Facebook. So instead of opening the Facebook app, you can just see all your chats through the Messenger app. This is a timesaver because I can ignore all the Facebook drama and normal updates, and just check my chats. Plus, there's lots of stickers and GIFs to have fun with!
This is the app I use to read my digital comics. It's how I spend my time in waiting rooms, on my lunch break, or on long car rides. It's become a lifesaver.
4. Sell on Etsy
As someone who runs an Etsy shop, the Sell on Etsy app is wonderful. I have a little widget on my screen that lets me know how many orders I have and how much money I've made that month. I especially love it for orders. It's the easiest way to pull up an order to get the address and also to mark it as shipped.
This is a new app that we've been using for IGGPPC, but I've started to put in personal tasks as well. It's an easy organizational app that you can make tasks in and give due dates. It's become a lifesaver when keeping track of duties for the IGGPPC site and there's such a nice feeling to check off a task and see a narwhal fly across the screen. The great thing is Asana has an online site as well so you can always log in from your PC and add in tasks and headings and to do lists and then access it all on your phone.
