For the past two years, we've brought to you TSS Summer Playlist 2013 and TSS Summer Playlist 2014 and since you loved it so much, we have created TSS Summer Playlist 2015 through the recommendations from TSS Reader and Alpha Delta Pi alumnae, Stephanie Rosa. Stephanie is no stranger to music as she is embarking on a summer travel tour equipped with road trips and exploring different countries. She's even started her own blog called Sights 'N Sounds With Steph to track her adventures and all the music she encounters on the way. When speaking on the playlist she shares, "This is a super versatile mix! These were all pulled from my road trip playlist. One thing I did was have a ton of different genres to keep things interesting, and most of these songs cannot be found on the radio (because when I wanted to hear the radio I would switch over). I made sure to include some throwbacks too because they were fun to jam out to on those long drives".

It's the simple truth: some apps just make life better. Whether they enhance your life through photography or music, our phones would be lost without them! We've compiled a list of apps that have become our favorites... and we're sure that they will be your favorites, too.
If we had to pick only one photo app to use, this would be the winner! Afterlight is our go-to, all bundled up in one pretty app. Crop, add borders, add filters, add exposure, brighten, sharpen, add light leaks... you name it, Afterlight does it. Everything can be customized as well. Under "light leaks," tap the rainbow color icon for more color options. Use the adjusting bar at the bottom to lighten or increase the intensity on all features. Play around on this app, and you will discover all of the beautiful custom edits you can do!
2. Word Swag
When adding text to a photo, look no further than Word Swag. The font choices & layouts are of graphic designer quality, sure to showcase your message in style. Use one of their provided backgrounds (they have plenty of cool ones) or upload your own photo to add text. If you're stumped on what to say, they even have suggestions! Like Afterlight, be sure to explore the various options and customizations to make the text uniquely yours.
If you're not using Spotify, it's time to check it out. And it's worth every penny for the upgraded version without advertisements (Spotify Premium) as well! Every song, at your fingertips, all the time. Create playlists, follow playlists in any music genre, and explore all artists. Take it with you on the go, and sync Spotify over Bluetooth in your car too. If you're looking for a place to start, check out our Summer Playlist and our EDM Workout Playlist!
Too many pictures (or videos) your phone taking up space? Don't want to delete all of them, just in case you ever need one of them? Dropbox is your answer! Download the app to your phone, and sync it with your photo album. Once synched, delete photos on your phone with ease... knowing that they're stored right on your Dropbox app if ever needed! Bonus: if you install Dropbox on your computer too, you can access the same photos from there as well.
We love Pinterest, it can entertain us for hours on end. If you're not pinning from the app on your phone, it's time to give it a whirl. Pinterest is faster, easier, and a whole new experience when viewed on the app!
Paying for parking, but would rather not swipe your card at the meter? Pay with ease using your credit card on your phone, using PayByPhone. It's secure, and helps to save you time as well.
Need to pay your roommate for rent? Does your bestie want to pay you for last night's pizza delivery? Venmo is your answer, allowing you to pay or collect money from others with ease... no checks or cash required.
Looking for a great restaurant or coffee house nearby? Want to see what other people thought of those chicken enchiladas (with pictures too)? The Yelp app is here to answer these questions, on the go. Yelp is also great to use when you're traveling to a new city, and looking for suggestions of places to go try!
If you enjoy shopping on Etsy, you're going to love the app! Browse and discover new shops and items, and make purchases within seconds. Add items to your Favorites list if you want to save them for later. We love browsing Etsy for unique gifts, especially gifts that can be customized!
Because well, it's Instagram.
What are your favorite apps? We would love to discover more!
