Letter from the Editor

Welcome to Appy!

You’ve probably heard the phrase “there’s an app for that” more than a few times in your life.
Here at Appy, we believe this to be true and we have made it our mission to help you find the very
best of the best apps when it comes to any given category. Our incredible board of experts and
everyday individuals alike team up for each edition of Appy to bring you truthful reviews about the
hottest apps, from both sides of the table. Our staff also puts together full write ups covering the
positives and negatives about each featured app and the most effective ways to use them.
This quarter, for our premiere edition, we decided to focus on highlighting the best photo editing
apps that are out there. The best kind of editing can quickly turn a “good” photo into a “great“
photo. It is our hope that our research and referrals can give you that #NoFilter kind of confidence,
(even if you prefer to use a filter or two) when editing and sharing photos with friends, on social
media, and more. Happy editing & stay (h)Appy!
Best,
Megan Rogers-Reilley
