Six Android Apps for seamless content creation

There is something that gets frustrating about implementing a perfectly curated digital marketing strategy. Most small and medium scale businesses face this frustration - CREATING CONTENT FOR THEIR CAMPAIGNS.

You think through, brainstorm thoroughly and make endless researches that could help you reach and capture your customers online. Then - You hit a rock! How to go about creating compelling visual, audio and video contents.

You make an effort to contact a graphics designer or a video editor and the bills you receive dampen your spirit even the more😞😳…Lol

That is why I’ve decided to put up a list of 6 Android apps (I don’t have money for iPhone..) to help you with your content creation. There are quite a lot more than the following six but these are the 6 I find myself using more often often.

1. Canva (FREE and PAID)

Many are familiar with the web version of Canva but few know that the mobile app actually exists.

With Canva, you can easily create a variety of custom-sized visuals - Facebook posts, Instagram posts, web banners, web ads, social media graphics, Infographics and a whole lot of others.

Add-on: At a monthly price of $12.95 - about 4800 naira [as at March 2018], you can get access to premium functions like the Magic resize function , GIF creation function and a host of other premium illustrations, images and tools.

The good thing is that all designs from both the web and mobile apps and synchronized with your email address. Hence, you don’t have to worry about losing your designs.

Disclaimer: Manipulating Canva does not make you a professional graphics designer. Let’s still give the professional graphics designers some respect. 😊

2. Google Keep (FREE)

I basically use Google keep to put down ideas and thoughts that come to mind. As a content creator, you are open to do many ideas; truth is - if they are not put down at that moment, it may be a hard time recalling some of those ideas.

Google Keep Features

Essentially, I use Google keep to put down my thoughts and modify contents for posting week in, week out. It’s a Google product and I know we all love google. wink

Google Keep Features

There are other note taking apps like Evernote but I guess I just love keep for its simple layout and for the fact that data is synchronized with my Gmail account which means when I login to keep.google.com on my PC, I can access the same data I have on the mobile app. So much for workflow ease.

3. InShot (FREE and PAID)

For those who create videos for storytelling, more often than not, we are stuck when we get to having a voice over.

I, on some occasions had to make use of my phone’s recorder app. Apart from the fact that I sounded so awful😢, the app also picked up background noise even when everywhere was silent.

When I started working as a volunteer for my aunt’s school, I initially pleaded with a friend who came to the rescue.She did the voice over but I felt bad that I could only help with as low as 1000 naira for something that would have cost over 5,000 on a good day.
