Happy Friday! ?
Before I log off off & go into weekend mode, I want to share a really cool app with you all. “Really cool” doesn’t do this app justice. IT’S FREAKIN’ AWESOME.
One of the great benefits of being a blogger is learning about new apps and reporting back to you! If companies never reached out to me, I’d have no idea about all of these cool apps or products. Have you guys ever heard of TEXTURE? Or have I been living under a rock? It’s a magazine subscription app that changes everything. I literally sat in bed for three hours last night browsing page after page. I don’t blog about apps often because they usually don’t excite me, but this one sucked me right in.
Stand in the magazine aisle at the grocery store, take a look around at all the options and imagine holding all of them in one hand, on one device, for only $9.99 a month…& that’s not even the coolest part!
Whether you’re spending the weekend lounging around the pool or jumping on a train to escape the city, it’s always nice to have reading material. You can only browse social media for so long before you get tired of food pictures and cute animals (well that is what’s on my feed.) That is where TEXTURE comes in. This magazine subscription app has over 200 of the most popular magazines available for download.
TEXTURE has all of my favorite magazines and it’s cool because I can save them to my library in the app. Not only does it have my favorite’s latest, but it has months worth of them! You can search the app for specific keywords & it will go through magazines to pull out related articles. Try doing that at the grocery store!
I have a lot of my favorites already added to my library, including Food Network Magazine, Allrecipes, Bon Appetit, Clean Eating, Good Housekeeping, Real Simple, Eating Well, Runner’s World, Self, Shape, Southern Living, Wired, Women’s Health, and Yoga Magazine.
I’ve been introduced to some new favorites thanks to the app!
I spend so much money on magazines. It’s ridiculous. I sometimes throw a few into the cart while I’m waiting at the grocery store’s checkout (I’m a sucker for the mag rack.) I probably spend over $20.00 on magazines every month. It would probably be less expensive to visit the doctors office on a monthly basis to read their table material.
I can get all of my favorites unlimited with TEXTURE! That gives you access to all the magazines + years of back issues. I was reading pumpkin recipes from the Food Network Magazine this morning while Grumples was playing at the dog park. Want to know something cool? (I’m going to tell you anyways.) It’s like the Netflix of magazines because you can share your account with FIVE devices, so put it on all of your family’s phones. I told my mom about it and now she is using my account on her tablet!
I decided to use TEXTURE in a whole different way last night. I headed out for my five mile run and then decided to do some abs at the gym. I caught myself doing the same ab workout over and over again. I tried to log onto Pinterest to pull up some new ideas, but I had zero service. I remembered that I had downloaded some fitness magazines on TEXTURE, so I pulled those up! You can browse your downloaded magazines even when you’re not online. Hello, airplane material!✈️ If you’re trying to reach fitness goals, you can search all the magazines for awesome workouts and healthy eats! ?
TEXTURE is a smart app. It provides personalized article recommendations based on the magazines I love. There is a Categories option that helps you customize your searches. You can bookmark your favorite articles for later use! I bookmarked a couple recipes to pull up while I’m at the grocery store. It’s so much easier than ripping out a page in a magazine (that I will probably forget on the counter) to take to the grocery store.
Magazines are great, but the TEXTURE app is so much more convenient. This app is a little better for the environment?
1. Saves paper ? 2. No mail delivery (you can get your favorite before it even hits stands) ? 3. No lights on to read it at night, in the car, or on an airplane. ? 4. No driving to the grocery store to buy a new magazine. ? 5. Takes up less space. ?
I love how easy the app is to use. It’s not overwhelming and I don’t have ads popping up in my face every five seconds. I can hop on the couch and start reading immediately. I tend to have a short attention span (surprised?). I find myself using the search function more to look up things I’m interested in. It’s nice that I don’t have to read the entire magazine to find interesting articles. I can read whatever magazine I want, whenever I want.
If you type “TEXTURE” into your device’s app store, you’ll be able to find it!
