5 Must-have Apps to Grow Your Instagram in 2020.
Adobe Lightroom Mobile
Adobe Lightroom Mobile is free and is by far my favorite app to edit photos on. It used to be available for desktop use only (and only really used by professionals), but since the rise of social media and the demand of a much larger amateur audience, they’ve opened up the gates to what I can only describe as the ultimate paradise.
It makes editing a piece of cake! Your photos will finally look professional and you’ll be able to get away from that dreaded Instagram filter.
A plus for this popular app is that you can find tons of editing tips on YouTube (if you’re not satisfied with all the tutorials available on the app).
You can also make or buy presets (your own filters) which will allow you to edit your photos in seconds.
- Editing your images wherever your phone goes
- Creating your own presets
- Capturing, editing & sharing photos all from one place
- A free step by step tutorials in the app.
- Hundreds of photos that you can explore on the app for inspiration created by professional photographers.
I would encourage you to get your hands on this free app – today because your life will change
Planoly allows you to effortlessly draft, plan, schedule your Instagram posts. Don’t worry, it is 100% safe as it’s partnered up with Instagram and been given the thumbs up. Now you can schedule posts for an entire month (or more if you wish) in one day. Just drag and drop the image, add a caption, some hashtags, and set the schedule. Planoly will automatically post on your behalf and save you hours!
- Plan ahead to see what your feed will look like
- If you’re an eCommerce business, then you’ll love the Shoplink feature which allows your customers to shop with one click
- Custom scheduling
- Analytics to track your engagement and progress
- Templates for stories and posts are also available
If you are someone that manages social media I would highly recommend you invest in this app. It makes organizing and automating easy!
You’ve spent a whole day shooting for your latest post, the sunset was perfect, the outfit was perfect and the soda can was… wait what? How could you miss a soda can on the floor, it’s in every shot! Well, fear not because Retouch allows you to remove unwanted things with just one swipe of a brush! It’s as though it was never there.
What I love about this app is that where an item or blemish has been removed you can hardly notice the edit and it doesn’t spoil your photo.
- Removes unwanted items in photos
- Removes blemishes
This app is truly a lifesaver and an easy tool to make your photos look much more professional.
If there was a creative genius award for apps, this app would take the prize!
If you have no experience in design and are looking to create content that looks like you’ve been a graphic designer for years, then Canva will be your best friend.
It allows you to use templates for all types of postings, this makes it that much more pleasant to finish the task you want. Although Canva has many features this app does not overwhelm you with all of its options, but rather allows you to do what must be done while making it look good.
- Tons of templates for all platforms
- Ability to resize images
- Transparent background
- Team folders
- Gif/movie animator
- Find fonts and logos
- Upload fonts and logos
- Custom brand-kit
- Millions of stock-photos
My overall experience with Canva is definitely 10/10, this app helps me find inspiration on days I need it the most.
Command for Instagram
You know that phrase that goes, “Keep your friends close, keep your enemies closer”? Well, this is the app that embodies this phrase.
A little competition is always good for business and Command for Instagram allows you to track your competition and stay on top of valuable stats.
Not only does it give you eyes and updates every hour, but it’ll help you network and find other like-minded influencers and business owners to collaborate with.
- Competitor tracking
- Hourly stats
- Find collaborators
- Instagram report card
I believe that this is one of the more useful and important apps to have as it will supply you with extremely valuable information to get the most out of your social media goals.
