Command is an Instagram app that provides a host of unique metrics. It provides an intuitive experience thanks to easy-to-read graphs and charts as well as a “Report Card” that grades everything from your followers count to your photo orientation. You’ll also get access to hashtag and caption recommendations, and even suggested influencers to work with.
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.
5 NEW Instagram story APPs! 2019
Instagrammers “like” more than 4.2 billion posts each and every day, but you wouldn’t know it were it not for the power of analytics. If you’re only focused on taking beautiful photos and videos and not watching how they perform, you’re missing out on a huge opportunity to optimise your Instagram’s performance. Consider adding one of these 3 analytics apps to your Instagram suite to track and improve your success over time.
HitFilm Express is one of the more professional video editors to make the list. It contains all the features you would expect from a basic editor (splicing, trimming, and audio editing) plus much more. While some users may find HitFilm a little advanced, it’s certainly one of the best all round free video editors out there. The free package includes over 180 special effects.
With more than 1 billion monthly users – 500 million of which are on the app every day – Instagram is one of the most popular social media platforms in the world, second only to Facebook when it comes to engagement. And it’s not just consumers who are using the platform to share content; of the top 100 brands around the globe, 90% have an active presence on Instagram. Those brands are using Instagram to post photos and videos, build brand awareness, and sell products and services.
With KineMaster, you can enjoy precise cutting and trimming, add multi-track audio to your work, create 3D transitions and produce multiple layers of video, images and text. The software is ideal for new editors as well as professionals and offers an incredible level of control when editing on a mobile device. KineMaster has apparently been used by a range of well-known film producers, journalists and YouTube content creators. It’s easy to share your work on social media when you have completed it.
Stop motion video can be a fun and engaging way to show off your products or create a flat-lay video, but it is also notoriously time-consuming to produce. LifeLapse uses ghosted image overlay tools so you can line up a series of photos to create a perfect sense of motion. Once you’ve added and adjusted your photos, the app stitches them into a video, with the option to add royalty-free music.
One big focus of this list is making sure that all the apps are usable for Android and iOS. Many “best of” lists in this category fail to meet that challenge, and are often only vouching for iOS apps (since Instagram is significantly more popular on that platform). With this list, we’re going to make sure that all of the apps are usable on both platforms, so that nobody is missing out.
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.
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.
