A Beautiful Mess – it’s not just how I describe my current state of mommyhood, but also the name of my new favorite app. We’ve all used photo editing apps like Diptic, SnapSeed, and Skitch, but there’s something different about A Beautiful Mess. It’s got a certain hip factor that just can’t be over looked and the ability to be customized for even the most savvy smart phone photographers with add-ons and downloads.

The app offers an easy to use interface that allows you to add filters, doodle, stylized texts, boarders and more to your photos and immediately upload them to your social media networks.

And, if the name of the app sounds familiar, it’s because it shares the same name of the popular blog where editors Elsie and Emma write about crafts, photography, recipes, decor, fashion, and beauty. Be sure to check that out too, because if you like the aesthetic of their site, you’ll love the app even more.

 Want to see a sample of what you can do with the app before you purchase it? Follow #ABeautifulMess on Instagram to see what all the fuss is about, and to find out why this is currently the number one user photo editing app around.  A Beautiful Mess is currently available for the iPhone ($0.99), and rumored to be coming soon to an Android near you. (Please Note: The $0.99 you spend purchases the app, but it does not give all access to all of the A Beautiful Mess app features. Additional features do cost extra within the app.)
