4 Fun FREE Apps to Win The Instagram Game

There are a lot of cool FREE Apps out there that can add functionality and sparkle to the number one picture and video App Instagram, but I'm going to share my favorite four! And yeah, I'm still mourning the loss of Vine. But, finding these new Apps has helped me get past the it... a little!


1. Flipagram 

With Vine going away I really needed something to combine video, filters, drawing, still pics, and music all together and I found that in Flipagram!  Easy to learn & upload to Instagram with a not too obnoxious watermark. 

Tech Tip: It's easier to create the video and pictures first, THEN bring them into Flipagram. Also, make sure all the still pics and/ or the videos are shot either landscape or portrait, mixing them up looks super awkward or sideways.  Read more about Flipagram: Oh Baby, Please Don't Go! including how to embed.

Here's an example:

2. Pic Collage - Photo Collage Maker & Picture Editor

"PicCollage has everything you need to create amazing collages with your photos. With our new layout and clean design, it’s even easier to unleash your creativity. This holiday play with our seasonal stickers, backgrounds, and templates. "

Here's an example:   
and here's what it looks like on Instagram 
PS. I paid the $1.99 to remove the insta Watermark. There are also more in-app features. Haven't gone there, yet. But tempting! 

3. Pic Stitch
 If you enjoy making collages of your photos and applying cool effects while you do it, Pic Stitch just might just float your boat. It's available FREE for iOS on the App Store. There is a pro version, but try the FREE first! 
What they're sayin: "Best rated &  One of the Top 7 photo apps of ALL TIME according to Mashable"

4. Frame Swagg

FREE and super easy to use collage maker. Select template design, pictures, background color, send to IG or camera roll and Booyah! Done!

Bonus:  This also works with Twitter! Save collage to camera roll & upload to Twitter.
Here's an example:

BONUS: InstaSize 
I haven't had time to play with this myself, but in my research for this post, it came highly recommended! Do you use it?
"Easily create a designer photo collage from your pics then send it to Instagram.  Quickly combine your photos into your choice of frame layouts and send to Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and more, right from your iPhone."

What they're sayin: "With over 200 million downloads, next generation premium filters, and advanced editing tools, InstaSize is the #1 must have editor app for anyone who creates pictures, collages, or videos."
