Created by Instagram, the Boomerang app captures micro-moments, turning them into looping videos you can share on Instagram and other platforms. The app works by taking a burst of 10 photos and turning them into a single (and fun) mini video. The big downside to Boomerang is you can’t create a Boomerang video from existing video footage; you have to capture the moment in the Boomerang app itself to export it as a mini video. Boomerang is free and available 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.
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.
