When it comes to growing your fanbase, don’t underestimate the power of social media. It might feel tedious to edit and tweak your content, but a little effort can go a long when curating your page and posting professional-looking pics and videos. The good news is, there a ton of helpful apps, and to make things even easier for you, we’ve listed some of our faves in this month's At Your Fingertips post.
If you’re looking to curate your social media page and have a cohesive theme in mind to reflect your brand, message, and vibe, then we’d like to introduce you to Over. Warning: You might become totally obsessed with this app, so we suggest reserving an afternoon to really get to know Over and benefit from everything it has to offer.
Once you sign up and choose between “Personal” and “Brand,” you’ll have a huge library of hand-curated templates and layouts to choose from, with the option to upload your own fonts and logos. You’ll also have access to stock photography websites like Google Images, Unsplash, and Pixabay. Personally, we love the fact that you can get really creative by layering, masking, and blending your photos. ($9.99)

The automatic camera functions on our phone can be convenient, but admit it, they’re not always making us look our best, no matter how many filters we layer on. So we’re suggesting going manual…literally. It might take a few more seconds to set it up before you actually snap the shot, but it’s worth it if you want to look flawless. We’d like to introduce you to Manual.
It allows you to adjust and control exposure, shutter speed, white balance, focus, and ISO and capture images in both JPEG and RAW format. It also offers light and dark themes so you could really get the shot you want. It’s a no-frills kind of app with a simple and easy-to-use interface. ($3.99)

If you’re as much of a fan of social media stories as we are, then Story Slicer is a must. Whether you prefer shooting directly with Story Slicer or want to use a video you already have saved, Story Slicer allows you to cut and edit videos with smooth transitions. It also lets you post stories on your Facebook, Instagram, VK, and Whatsapp without length limitation. ($1.99)
