For those of us fashion bloggers that are both social media savvy and always on the go, mobile apps can be the most important lifeline to staying up to date and active on the internet. Here’s five useful apps to keep you going on the internet when you aren’t in front of your computer:
1. Analytics App

4. WordPress and Tumblr apps
Both WordPress and Tumblr allow you to update your sites from your phone.
