'Appy Days

It's 2020, were pretty much all consumed by our mobile phones, but what is it we're actually doing on them all day every day?
We're letting you in our top 8 must have apps, some that we don't go a day without usingÂ đŸ“±Â 

1. Instagram

We had to start with our number 1 app - Instagram. If you know EL&N, you will know that Instagram is the bread and butter of our company. We pride ourselves on being one of the most Instagrammable cafĂ©s in the world and not being biased, but we've got it down to a T đŸ‘ŒđŸŒ
With the prettiest, pinkest of feeds, we use Instagram to showcase all seven of our cafés, their locations, the instragammable moments within each café, and all we have to offer on our menus.
We've mastered the usage of stories and showing our followers behind the scenes, what goes into running a café like EL&N, and all things CEO with our founder, Alexandra Miller. Although Instagram is used by us for business purposes, that doesn't mean that there isn't room for fun and creativity.
There is endless apps you can use in correlation with Instagram...


Your pic need a little TLC? A hint of colour wash added to it? We have found the perfect app for this... VSCO allows you to brighten up the dullness of your image, bringing it to life and making the image POP.

We use VSCO for it's very famous photo editing features. We add a coloured wash to our images in order to make our Instagram feed consistent with it's colour tone.

3. Facetune

Whether you're using Facetune for work purposes, or to edit personal pictures, this app is low key a game changer. From sharping your best features, whitening your teeth, to blurring out the couple that photobombed your pic, this feature does it all! 

Sometimes we find that cameras don't pick up the perfection of the latte art that our barista's create on top of your coffees, therefore, we use Facetune's 'Detail' feature in order to sharpen certain elements in our images such as the latte art. 

When taking flat-lay pictures on a table, or taking outdoor pictures, features such as the whitening tool is a great go-to in order to brighten elements within the image to make it less dull and for the picture to pop that bit more. It's great for keeping your feed consistently bright, grabbing your followers attention. 

 4. Unfold

Looking to create the perfect collage? Look no further. Unfold offers hundreds of collage templates to choose from. Not only this, but with an array of fonts and colours to choose from, you can add text and coloured backgrounds to your collages. So whether you're showcasing new menu items for your business, or simply wishing your best friend a happy birthday, we definitely recommend this app to do so in a playful, creative way. 

5. Planoly

If you're looking to keep up with the latest trends, dance routines and viral vids, then TikTok isn't a want, it's a need. It's the most popular app currently on the market and we totally understand why. DISCLAIMER - you WILL end up spending hours watching videos and thinking "how did I get here đŸ€”".
