3 Must-Have iOS Apps For Instagram

3 Must-Have iOS Apps For Instagram

by Brad MerrillNovember 5, 2014

I’ve been using Instagram a lot lately, and I’ve come to love these three apps for content creation. The typical photo with a filter is great, but it never hurts to add a little variety to your feed. Give these apps a try, and let me know what you think.

Pic Stitch

Pic Stitch allows you to combine multiple photos into one beautifully framed collage. It offers a simple, intuitive design and a powerful editor that produces a great looking result every time.

Once you’ve created your collage with one of the app’s 230 layouts, you can export it to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or any other installed app that accepts JPEG images.

Pic Stitch is great for sharing a collection of related images without posting them individually and clogging up your followers’ feeds.

And it’s free, so that’s a plus.

Repost

Instagram doesn’t currently offer a native method to repost or share others’ photos with your followers. Repost for Instagram fills this void.

It’s easy to use—you just select a photo to repost within the app, and it adds the proper attribution to the image itself and exports it to Instagram.

For businesses, this could be a great way to shout out and recognize your followers when they share photos of your products, for example. You could also use it as an equivalent to Twitter’s retweet, where you reshare photos you particularly enjoy.

This one is free as well.

InstaQuote

Last but not least, InstaQuote helps you create beautiful text images for Instagram. It offers 20 pre-designed templates, along with 50+ font choices and a set of background images to create your own styles. You can also import background images from your camera roll and add effects (like blur) to help your text stand out.

Really a great app—one I use multiple times a day.

It’s free for the base version, but to access additional features and remove the watermark, you’ll need to pay $1.99. Well worth it, if you ask me.
