My Favorite Apps and Websites

Hello, Mikayla here!

Okay, so I really don't use apps, so most of these are just websites, but some also have apps. 

1. Picmonkey
This is my favorite site ever. Its a photo editing site, and you can use it for free and its got all sorts of cool stuff you can do on it. I make all my post graphics on it. You can also upgrade to Royal membership to have access to more stuff (and no ads), but you can still use the site without having Royal membership. I have it because I use the site to design covers and its worth my money to have access to all the stuff.

(There is no app for this, and you cannot use it on your mobile device, only on your computer in your browser)

Okay, so their logo isn't the coolest, but Word Hippo is really amazing. Its basicly a word database. You can look up opposite words, other words for things, words in different languages,sample sentences with a word, and (My favorite) rhyming words. I use the rhyming words resource all the time for my poetry. 

(This does not have an app, but you can use it on a browser on your mobile device)

3. Pandora

This is a site where you create your own personal radio station. You just put in an artist's name and it creates a station, playing their music and artists like them. 
I have a station for Britt Nicole, and it plays a lot of TobyMac, Jamie Grace and Mandisa, which I love. I also discovered some new arstist that I really love now.
Its a great way to listen to music by artists you love, and maybe find some new ones. 
It does have ads on it, but it has never had anything inappropriate for me. You can pay to have the ads go away, if you like. 

(This can be played on a browser or in their app.)

4. Pinterest

Pinterest is a basically virtual bulletin board of photo. You can have lots of different boards, and pin things to them. 
I love it because I can save off awesome photos, and find photos of my book characters. They have an amazing database of crafting projects and such. 
I would just warn people though, there are no rules about what you can and cannot pin, so there's some bad stuff on there, I would be cautious while on it. 

(This can be used in your browser, or in their app)

5. NaNoWriMo

NaNoWriMo and its other site Camp NaNoWriMo are an amazing challenge for writers. NaNo runs three times a year. In November they have their biggest challenge: Write 50,000 words in 30 days. In April and July you can choose your own word count goal.
Sometimes all you need as a writer is an incentive to write more, and NaNo allows you to have goal your working towards, and they have prizes they give out at the end to all winners. You also have the chance to write along with tons of other writers.
I love using this because it really motivates me to write.
