Hello everyone and welcome to my blog! If you’ve been following my blog since before, then you probably might have noticed that I love organization. I super love organizing things especially my own stuff. It makes me feel responsible, clean and it just improves my overall mood. Today, I want to share how I organize my phone and what are the apps I have in my 2-year-old iPhone 8+.
What’s On My iPhone?
To start off, I don’t really put my to-do lists in my phone. I like writing them in my journal because when I see the journal spreads I have, it’s really satisfying. I also don’t have study apps in my iPhone because I got an iPad 7th gen last March and I transferred everything there. Also, as much as possible, I really want to take care of my phone storage so I clean it everytime.
But you’ll find here different apps I use for different things. Let’s start!
Here’s my lock screen! I really love the wallpaper and I’ve honestly been using this for months. It’s just so nice to open my phone and see a reminder to love myself, because that’s what we all should be doing.
This is what you’ll see in the home screen. I’ve been using the default home screen the iPhone has when it’s new so there’s nothing really special here. I just removed the things I don’t really use. On the bottom part is the Phone, Ecosia, Messages and Spotify.
I really suggest using Ecosia as your default browser because in every 45 searches, you get to plant a tree! I’ve been using Ecosia the past few years but I accidentally deleted it and so my no. of searches restarted. I replaced the default Apple Music to Spotify because it’s where I have my subscription.
Also, the wallpaper is an illustration I made.
If you move on to the next page you’ll see this. I have just downloaded the Among Us game the other day and I don’t have any other games installed so I just put it there.
Also, I have arranged the apps by its colors first and then alphabetically— so you’ll see the apps which has the brightest colors first to darkest. I also offload my apps so it could save some space while I don’t use it.
Here are the apps I use for my blog. Pinterest, Gmail, Outlook and WordPress!
Next folder is the Essentials. You probably know these apps already. PictureThis is an app that lets you know the name and diagnose your plants— which is very essential for me and my mom.

Here are the apps I use for editing! I’ve always used VSCO for my Instagram photos but I switched to Lightroom last 2019. I have purchased subscription again in VSCO so it’s my main editing app for now.
I also have Preview which can give you a ‘preview’ of what your Instagram feed could look like. Canva— of course, classic— I use this for editing stories and lots of other things. Splice is a video editing app and I use this to compile my Instagram stories which gets cut.
Next I have the Health folder. I have the default Health app for iOS, Flo which is a monthly period tracker and Workout Women which I recommend if you want to have an app for Workout.

The next folder is Learn. I have a lot of News apps before and I put it here as well but since I have my iPad, I transferred it there. Here you can find Dictionary, Duolingo and Enduring the Word.
I’m retaking my lessons for Italian and I do want to learn Arabic as well. My Kuyas (older brothers) are in the UAE and sometimes they talk to us in Arabic and I just really want to learn too. I’ve started but there are a lot of things going on that I stopped. I hope to continue it though.
Enduring the Word is an app where you can read Bible verses commentaries. If you’ve watched my A Chill Productive Day // Vlog then you know that I have set up a Bible Journal because I want to read and study it chronologically. I am now in Exodus.
Next are the social media apps I use. You probably use these as well so let’s get to the next folder.
The next folder is services. Food delivery services, online shopping apps and banking apps. All here. Shopback is the biggest cashback site in the Philippines and you can have 100 Php if you use this referral link.
The last folder is the utilities. These are the default iOS apps that I don’t really use.
Thank you all so much for reading! I don’t really know if this looks organized for you but it works the best for me. Some people I know have their apps arranged by its uses and some by its colors. I admit, the organization by colors look pleasing but I don’t think I can’t do it.
Now, I’d love to know: how do you organize your phone? What app/s do you use almost every day except for the social media apps?
I’ll see you in the next post, bye!
