Last month, Instagram updated its logo, completely revamping its former look and giving the photo-sharing platform a new edge. In honor of the new update, it’s probably time you update your own Instagram account with a few Instagram apps designed to take your content to the next level. Here are just a few cool Instagram apps that will give your IG the boost it needs to attract more followers and simply allow you to have fun.
Prisma came out on June 16 and it’s been taking the IG world by storm. This fascinating app takes your photos and transforms them into prismatic works of art. The app utilizes cloud processing to apply famous painting styles (think Van Gogh, Munch, and Picasso) to your photos. So if you’re tired of taking the same standard shots over and over again, you can do something truly stunning with them by using Prisma.
This app has been around for almost a year now, but the sheer fun of it bears repeating. We’re amazed that more people aren’t using it. Boomerang is a video app that captures a few precious seconds of a video and loops it, essentially creating your own personal gif on your Instagram account. Boomerang takes those ordinary life moments and turns them into playful, forwards-backwards fun. Once you take one, you won’t be able to stop.
Again, Hyperlapse is nothing new (it’s been out for about two years), but if you’re only utilizing your time lapse feature on your iPhone, then it’s time to upgrade. With this app you can take quickly moving time lapse videos, even when you’re moving. This is the app of choice for people making Instagram tutorials but you can use Hyperlapse for anything: the slow descent down a mountainside, a walk through the woods, baking a cake—you name it. Hyperlapse makes it all incredibly entertaining.
Instagram users rave about Snapseed’s photo editing capabilities, and it’s easy to see why. If you like to touch up your photos before posting, Snapseed is a great choice. People love the level of control they can have over their photos as well as how powerful the software is. Be forewarned, though: Snapseed takes some getting used to. Professional photographers love it, so that tells you the level of ability and precision you’ll need when using it.
Instagram is more than just a photo-sharing tool. With these Instagram apps, you can transform your account and make it a source for entertaining content that delights your followers time and time again. With all these new apps running, don’t forget to preserve the life of your battery.
