Afterlight 2 is a photo editing app that takes photo filtering to the next level. Their ever-growing library of natural filters amplifies Instagram’s existing suite of options, helping you add extra polish to your images. As an added bonus, the app even lets you create your own filters to give your photos a consistent style that’s different from anyone else; play with your image hue, saturation and lightness, and overlay textures and effects to achieve the exact look you want. This affordable app is $2.99 and is currently ranked #2 app in the iTunes Photo and Video category – and for good reason. The only downside we can find is that it’s limited to iOS only, so Android users will have to find another option.
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.
There are a few different video editors for different needs and we have covered a few of the best video editor apps. You can create stop-motion videos with Stop Motion Studio. For simple animation, Flipaclip is best and Lapseit is best for time lapse videos. Instagram offers Boomerang to create short clips. I personally prefer Legend for Intros but its a quick tie between Quik and Legend. Tell us about your favorite editor.
Iconosquare is an Instagram (and Facebook) analytics web app that lets users measure impressions, track follower demographics (location, language, and more), and learn about when their audience is online to boost visibility. It also tracks all the basics – comments, views, likes, etc. – to give a baseline for how each individual post performs. While its analytics capabilities are robust, it doesn’t integrate with Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ or other popular platforms. Iconosquare starts at $29 per month, but large agencies managing multiple client accounts should contact Iconosquare’s sales team for a custom quote.
