The smartphone is an incredibly useful piece of technology to have in your pocket. Apps specialized to your interests take the smartphone’s efficiency to the next level. Here are our top picks for mobile apps that are designed to speed up your life and surface only the best items and creative finds that are relevant to you.

1. Artsy

artsyArtsy is a mobile app that lets users browse and buy art from leading galleries, artists’ estates, and museums around the world. Carter Cleveland, Artsy’s CEO, describes the app as “the art world in your hand”. It has introduced a product that is a refreshing addition to the art world by letting users work closely with specialists and curators to find the work of art that is perfect for them. “You can find any work you like, and ask a specialist… and you can do this all with a few taps of the phone.” Artsy is available for iOS and can be downloaded for free here.

2. Fab

fabFab is a members-only website and mobile app that offers curated deals from the best designers and manufacturers around the globe. You can purchase from directly within the app, preview upcoming deals and sales, and even search items in Fab’s inventory based on category, price, color, and design. Fab succeeds where similar shopping apps fail, offering a wide selection of sales handpicked from their vast inventory and making the purchasing experience fast and easy. This is available for free on iPhone and Android and can be downloaded from the Fab website.

3. Cookbooth

CookboothCookbooth is a beautifully designed mobile app for food lovers where users can snap photos of their cooking process and create step-by-step photo recipes to share with other users. Just as Instagram changed the way we share photos, Cookbooth is revolutionizing the way we record and share recipes. The app is great for amateur foodies and expert chefs alike: you can follow a few foodies to discover new recipes or, if you’re a more serious user in the community, you can actively share knowledge and useful cooking techniques to gain a following. This app is available for the iPhone and can be downloaded for free here.

4. Etsy

The Etsy app is perfect for people who want to find deals and unique items completely tailored to their personal style. This is all available on both the iPhone and Android, and can be downloaded for free here.

    Nice list. Cinch is a great (fairly new) app I use for general color scheming not just for my apartment but design work too (sneaky, right?).

    But while these are all great, what about apps for writers? Musicians? The whole other side of the creative planet?

    I’ve made an app for writers (http://getprompts.com), but it’s less about finding inspiration and more about doing the work.
