5 Must Have Apps That Will Change Your Instagram Game

PLANOLY

I love Planonly because of how minimalistic it is. Think of this app as a visual planner. It lets you schedule all your posts to the exact time you want it posted (days, weeks, or months in advance). Furthermore, the app lets you view your engagement rates for each post(s) weekly, monthly and yearly. Auto-population of hashtags and @Instagram handles is one of the things that sold me on the app. The only con is that I noticed for videos and multiple images, they don't automatically post it however you can go ahead and schedule it and they will alert you when its time to get posted.




FACETUNE

This is one of my favorite of all editing apps. With a little $5 investment you get high-end photoshop editing at your fingertips. Features like the smooth tool, detail, reshape, patch and tone are some of my favorite tools on the app. I always go back to this app most especially for all my makeup posts to get that airbrush finish. With over 32,000 downloads this app has become one of the leading beauty apps. I have so many other beauty apps that I love and that I am willing to share so please leave a comment below of you be interested in that.



AFTERLIGHT

I love Afterlight for brightening, sharpening and adding really cool filters like light overlays, frames, retro, and dusty dreamy filters to my photos. It does cost $2.99 in the App store but trust me it's so worth every penny.


Lightroom/PHOTOSHOP

These are both free in the app store for mobile devices but the free versions are very limiting with what you can do. I will advice making a $10.99/month creative cloud investment (which is what I have) on your desktop so that way you can explore all your creative juices. Gone are the days when we had to make $300 investments to use the photoshop app. I love both of these apps because there is no limiting to what you can do, you can literally make all your pictures look like you're on some island in Santorini and no one will know. If you are looking for a more professional think Vogue cover photo finish, this is the app you need. My main photo in these posts here and here where done in photoshop. Who wants a photoshop tutorial?

I love Lightroom because it lets me organize and have all my pictures in one place. I mostly use presets which I sometimes buy or create on my own for an added umphhh to my photos.



PHONTO

Last but definitely not least is my favorite app for writing on pictures. Completely free in the app store, get creative with the font on your pictures or even youtube thumbnails like here. Speaking of youtube are you guys subscribed to me on there? Please subscribe if you haven't, I have been posting a lot more frequently on there. I have a recent post of a bikini try on the haul, and one on how to apply false lashes here and here respectively.



Do you guys have any of these apps? What are some of your favorite/go-to apps? Which one will you be downloading I have so much more I didn't share but I didn't want to make this post too long. Comment below if you would like me to share more as well as share your fave apps with me also. 

Finally, I hope you all have entered my Giveaway with Jord watches here, so far only a few of you have entered if you didn't know about the giveaway you can read about it here.
