Top apps picked by Lisa Long of More Than Words, winner of the Homes and Interiors Good Web Guide Award 2016.

We do love a pretty picture, especially when we play a part in putting it together. We are excited to announce that bespoke typography website More Than Words won the Home and Interiors Good Web Guide Award 2016.

Founder, Lisa Long said, ‘I’m really honoured to receive the acknowledgement for our new website and original business concept. I set a goal several years ago to win this award one day, and here I am. It means so much.’ When she created the site six years ago, it was the first of its kind to offer customers a way of personalising their art. Customers choose their art, mix their own colours, enter words and choose their font. Congratulations to More than Words.

Here, Lisa tells us the apps she uses everyday.


I’m a very visual person and have come across so much inspiration on Instagram. I like to follow feeds about fashion, design and from fellow entrepreneurs. I could spend all day in the Insta-world. I love the new ‘Instagram Stories’ feature; it is a great way to see what goes on behind the images.


Snapseed is my favourite photo editor, and I’ve tried them all. This app is perfect for retouching my brush-lettering designs before posting on social media. It is a complete and professional photo editor developed by Google and has lots of tools and filters to adjust your photos.


I run three times a week as I really believe in the ‘healthy body, healthy mind’ mantra. The Map My Run is a perfect app for tracking my distances and times (and calories!). For each mile I run, I receive feedback and stats to inspire me. It has a community of 40 million runners.


The best app to discover and read blogs is called Bloglovin’. If, like me, you are hugely time limited, this app is a perfect way to keep up with the trends. Just sign up for your favourite categories and log into your feed every day to catch up.


The best simple list-making App for iPhone, iPad, and Mac is the award-winning app Clear. I love a to-do list and have used this app for a few years. You can sync it between all of your devices so you’ve no excuses.
