    Today we will talk about best and most useful apps for Instagram. The social network has gained a lot of popularity over the years and is now one of the most popular social media outlets. The 500 million active users it has earned over the past 5 years is proof of its validity as a social medium.


    From regular users to businesses, everyone has joined the platform to share their interests with photos and short videos. Instagram offers an official app for iOS and Android. It works very well on both operating systems.



    Instagram has not stayed asleep and has added various new features such as Whatsapp, but many features that users are looking for are still missing. So if you're looking to get more out of Instagram, you need to try some third-party apps specifically made to enhance your Instagram experience.

    1. HashTags

    Hashtags are the key to getting noticed. If you don't use the right hashtags for your posts, then you can easily go unnoticed. Unfortunately, not everyone is good at finding what they are looking for and this is where the hashtag app will help you. The free app allows you to choose a category of posts - such as animals, nature, electronics, etc - and will show you all the popular hashtags in that category.


    You can simply copy the required hashtag with a single tap and paste it on Instagram. Of course, the app doesn't offer all categories, but if you can't find a category for your image you can always email the developers to add it. Hashtag is only available for Android, but iOS users can use TagsForLikes which serves the same purpose.



    Available for Android (Free)


    2. Follower Stats for Instagram

    This application is like your personal Instagram dashboard, you can view the detailed activity of your account. It will give you a full report of who is following you, who you follow, who are most interested in your posts and much more. By purchasing the app which costs $ 4.99 you unlock all the features. With the free version, you can see only who is following you and who has blocked you.

    These statistics can be very important for those companies looking to market their products. The app interface is very intuitive and allows you to complete most tasks directly from the app instead of going to your official Instagram app.


    Available for Android (free, full version with in-app purchase of $ 4.99)

    3. InstaPlace

    InstaPlace allows you to add automatic and custom captions on photos to make them more attractive and informative. It allows you to tell everyone where you really are and what you are doing, just by reading the caption you put on your photo using this program.

    The app comes with dozens of skins to embellish captions but they can only be unlocked via in-app purchase. There Android version is free and is unlocked for $ 1.99 which allows you to unlock all features, for iOS e Windows Phone you can shop for $ 1.99 e$ 2.49, respectively.


    Available on Android (free, full version with in-app purchase $ 1,99), iOS ($ 1,99) and Windows Phone ($ 2.49)

    4 Facetune

    Selfie is one of the best hashtags on Instagram and hundreds of thousands of selfies are uploaded to Instagram every day. If you are a "selfie" person then you should definitely try this application for "Fix" your face. Facetune is an application that can easily turn an animal into an angel with just a few taps.


    I have tried many similar applications, but Facetune is by far the best. You can whiten your teeth, adjust your smile, remove dark circles, beautify your skin, change eye color and size, change hair color, reshape your face, add makeup and much more.

    Available for Android ($ 3.99), iOS ($ 3.99) and Windows Phone ($ 2.99)

    5. Boomerang from Instagram

    This is an official Instagram application that allows you to take 10 burst images in quick succession. Then it stitches all the images and turns them into a video, similar to a boomerang (the speed of the video can be adjusted), the video can go back and forth. You will surely find this feature better than a still image.

    Boomerang saves moving images to your camera roll, so you can share them on your favorite social media channel; including Instagram, of course.

    Available for Android and iOS (Free)

    6. Microsoft Hyperlapse

    It is a useful application for the timelapse video creation offered by Microsoft. Hyperlapse allows you to record a timelapse video. Once finished you can speed up and watch the video smoothly. For example, you can record a sunset or sunrise using Hyperlapse and then watch the video, speeding up the process. You can speed up the video up to 32x and the video is quite stable thanks to Microsoft's own time-lapse technology.


    You can also import your videos from the device as well turn them into timelapse videos. Furthermore, the interface of the app is extremely simple, you can easily create a timelapse video with just 2-3 taps.


    Available your Android (Free)

    7. Snapseed

    Snapseed is a professional photo editing application offered by Google that allows you to edit your photos and share them on social media channels; including Instagram. Although, Facetune works well for selfies, you will still need a good photo editing application to edit the different types of photos. Snapseed offers professional editing features and all of this for free.

    You can do a lot of advanced editing using the application, such as adjusting the white balance, creating depth and vibrancy, sharpening images, cropping, rotating, using brushes, adding enhancements and using tons of filters. On top of these amazing editing features, the interface is very simple and interactive.

    Available for Android and iOS (Free)

    8. Layout from Instagram

    Layout is another great Instagram application that allows you to create photo collages with ease. You can insert up to 9 images and adjust their position as you like by simply dragging them. You can also easily zoom-in or zoom-out of photos to adjust focus and use filters to make them more attractive.

    In addition, it allows you to take burst photos directly from the application to create collages on the go you can save the collages in your phone and then share them wherever you want.

    Available for Android and iOS (Free)

    9. Repost for Instagram

    Quite often it is possible to find a beautiful photo / video on Instagram and be tempted to share it with your followers. However, Instagram doesn't make reposting easy. If you want to post Instagram messages, Repost for Instagram allows you to easily do it by giving credit to the original photo / video.

    You can simply copy the post URL and paste it into the Repost app for Instagram. The application will allow you to share the original video / photo on Instagram.
