As the war between Instagram and snapchat continues, we are noticing the upgrades with the Instastories feature on Instagram. A lot of creators are gravitating towards it because you can get the function on of snapchat on Instagram which means one less app to struggle with.
Instastories was all fun and games until we started to see content creators with all these fancy fonts and well-curated videos that had us wondering how they create these videos?
I began to do some research that led me to discover a few applications that can up your instastories game. These Apps are available on iPhone, and most are also on Android.
Enough stories abeg let’s get into the Apps


This app can be used in making videos for both Instastories and Instagram; the app was created by Instagram to help creators to make time-lapses on the go. It’s an interesting feature especially if you want to share a long video without cutting out part of the video. Hyperlapse condenses the video and plays it at a faster speed.
Here’s an example of a Hyperlapse I created while on holiday in Dubai


Hypetype is an app for adding animated texts to videos and pictures. There are a variety of fonts to choose from, and the app has an inbuilt camera feature which means you can take pictures from the app.I find that this app just adds something extra to your texts as opposed to the regular text fonts Instagram has to offer.
Instastories app


If you are one that likes to share quotes on your Instastories and Instagram feeds this app will be your best friend. You can put your quotes in the most beautiful templates and backgrounds. I don’t use this often, but it’s a good one to have in your arsenal.


I love this app for my video editing on the go. This app allows me to add music, texts, backgrounds, fun graphics, fast forward or slow down the videos. It just makes my videos more engaging, and it’s a good way for editing clips from vlogs that you want to share on Instastories.


This is an old-time favourite, and I think everyone knows about this app but doesn’t utilize it fully. This app can be used to merge pictures (collage), Add colorful backgrounds to your pictures, add fancy texts and filters.

These are my fave apps to use at the moment. If you have any other apps, let me know in the comment section. Please share this blog post with your friends and family.
