Create the gifs of your dreams with GIPHY Cam, an app that lets you capture and embellish gifs to your heart’s content. Simply record a gif, add effects (moustaches, googly eyes, and other oddball add-ons available) and export your gif for social media sharing. The downside to this app is its functionality is limited to gifs only, but GIPHY Cam is like a specialty ramen restaurant – you know it’s good because it’s the only thing they do. GIPHY Cam is available for free on iOS and Android.
If you’ve managed an Instagram account for a while, you know posting content can seem like a full-time job. In fact, top brands post almost 5 times per week on average, which can easily eat up several hours. That’s why many social media managers leverage scheduling tools that allow them to load content in batches and automate posting. There are many of these tools out there, but here are some of the most popular apps for Instagram scheduling and publishing.
Stop Motion Studios is a very powerful stop-motion tool for a phone. It offers a variety of features like overlay mode, it displays the difference between frames, previous and current, which will help you correct the position. Regular features like grid and onion mode, focus and zoom, editing and adding frames are all there. You can add music or a voice over to the videos.
Command is an Instagram dashboard that helps brands better understand their Instagram users and stats so they can post at the right times and about the right topics. Their “Report Card” feature provides personalised recommendations for how to improve your account performance, and the app also finds trending hashtags within your industry so you can incorporate them into content and boost engagement. For people who prefer to access analytics on a desktop, that isn’t an option with Command; the app is limited to iOS only. Command is specifically for Instagram, and its basic features are free. For advanced analytics, users will need to upgrade to a paid account for $10 per month.

PicMonkey is an ideal solution for companies that want to add branded elements to their photos. The app lets you customise your colour palette, store branded fonts, and keep your logo on file to overlay on images. One of the major downsides to PicMonkey when compared to others on this list is its price. PicMonkey is available for $5.99 per month for a basic plan and $9.99 per month for a pro plan, making it one of the more expensive options in this section of our guide. But the rave reviews from users may make it worthy of trying out. PicMonkey is available for iOS and Android, and is available on desktop via a Chrome extension.
That’s right, YouTube! Or YouTube Capture, if you’re on iOS. (Android users can do the same within the base YouTube app.) YouTube Capture offers YouTube’s own mobile recording and editing features, with no limit to the amount of clips you can use or the time your video can run. Thanks to its integration with the YouTube platform, it also offers access to a massive free audio library, and allows you to quickly and easily edit and post your video to YouTube, Instagram and more.
