I love my iPhone.
- The Sell On Etsy App. This app is specifically for mobile devices, and allows me to manage my shop on the go. My phone now notifies me with a loud audio CHA-CHING every time I make a sale, as well as allows me to post Shop Updates instantly from anywhere, linking my update directly to any item in my shop. Honestly, this app is worth it for the “cha-ching” sound alone.
- The high quality on-the-go camera. Now, I don’t take my print photography on my phone, but my iPhone camera allows me to take artfully exposed still life images for my shop updates, blog, and social media posts–I can even edit them directly on my phone if I want to crop or tweak the exposure. This saves me EONS of time as I don’t have to use my slr camera, hook it to my PC, download the images, then edit them in PhotoShop just to get a quick image. Plus, the images are so high quality I can use them as references for my art paintings.
