My personal top 5 apps for Instagram on the iPhone!

Soooo this could be an interesting post for all the instagram users reading this!
Since I'm a person with a relatively big Instagram audience the social network has become really important to me hence I care a lot about what I post on there.
The quality of my photos is just as important as posting regularly and engaging with my followers.
It, however, happens very often that I am rather busy so I usually don't have the time to sit on my macbook editing photos to post on instagram for hours. I therefore have a list of apps on my iPhone that I use, whenever my photos just need a quick fix.
Here are my personal all-time-favorites:

#5 Alisa
Alisa is always a good app if you wanna frame your photos or add a special, unique touch to them. It offers a wide variety of colorful frames/backgrounds for your photos and 3 filters to match the tone of your photos better to the tone of the frame. :)
I used to use this app a lot but now since the trend of instagram has gone into a more 'natural' edit I don't really use it anymore, at least not for my IG photos.

#4 Phhhoto
Phhhoto isn't exactly a photo editing app, it's more of an app to record very short GIFs - so, moving photos. This app as well lets you choose between natural light or black and white filter and the results definitely convinced me! I love using this and experimenting with it whenever I'm bored now, the results are usually really great! :)









#3 VSCO cam
VSCO cam is already quite popular and well-known as a photo editing tool amongst many IG users. It offers a lot of retro inspired filters and the popular 'fade' effect.

#2 Photos
This might sound weird since 'Photos' is already an apple intern application every iPhone user has on their phones but I personally couldn't imagine uploading photos without the 'fade' filter on my IG anymore. I think it's great and adds to the 'artistic' touch. haha.

#1 Afterlight
This is by far my all time favorite for photo editing on the iPhone.
It offers an incredible amount of different, very beautiful filters and I will guarantee you will find at least one or two filters that will match your feed just perfectly. It also offers basic photo editing like adjustments in lighting, contrast, saturation, hue, etc. and users can also choose from an amount of frames or use the 'layering' effect on their photos.

 
I loved this app a lot, not only for Instagram but also for my general photo editing on the iPhone. Only minus here is that it's not completely free but I can promise you those 0,99 cents are definitely more than worth it!

Another very useful app, probably not useful in terms of photography but definitely useful for instagram that I use is the 'followers'-app!



it allows you to keep an overview of your follower stats and enables you to unfollow those cheeky unfaithful ones in only just a click!
If you purchase the premium packs (which are like 0,99$ I believe) it also gives you a list of your followers from best to worst and also shows people who are not following you but like your photos on a regular basis so you can ideally give back some love!




 What is your favorite app for photo editing on your phone? :)

  16. Oh my! i'm relatively new to Instagram and mostly just use the photo editing on my iphone plus VSCOcam, but had NO IDEA apps like the followers existed. HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE IT'S BLOWING MY MIND. Of course, I just post for fun and a creative outlet, never even understanding the need for this. You use it a lot then, and i'm guessing your instagram is more of a commercial type page? and if you have a moment, what are the benefits of keeping track of things like this, a bigger audience? Just curious :)
    lovely post and space!!
