If you’re in the business of blogging or even just love creating content for Instagram, these 9 game changing apps to up your Instagram content need to be on your phone. These apps help plan, create, and edit the content you share — whether it’s for a post or stories. I have an entire folder just for social and love using these apps to help streamline process, check stats, and add fonts.
9 Game Changing Apps to Up Your Instagram Content
The most common question I have ever received has been about those “pretty fonts” over the images in stories. I even wrote an entire post about it! I use WordSwag to add in text and have my stories stand out more than just the text given by IG.
I’ve used Iconosquare and have paid for the professional plan for almost three years. Their date is really strong and you can see your demographics, best time to post, and which hashtags are best used. I always reference this app before posting or doing date analytics.
It’s old school but an easy app if you don’t want to get into Lightroom for editing photos. Their filters are easy batch edit and have an incredible range.
Oh what would I do without Retouch! It’s the best app for removing that extra person who popped in the back of the frame. I’m not strong at Photoshop when it comes to removing things in an image so this app has helped a ton!
If you like to plan ahead, this app can help you arrange your feed and plan ahead to see how the images will look together. It’s a great tool for organization and you can even respond to comments on here!
So how do you get text on a vertical video? Overvideo has all of your video editing needs.
7. Adobe Suite
I’d recommend a variety of Adobe apps, from the Lightroom to Photoshop mobile for a more in-depth editing.
I always use this app when there are spots in my photo that are too bright as you can spot edit on here.
This is one of those apps that are just good to keep when you want to create boomerangs outside of the Instagram apps, in case you need multiple takes!

PS — Are You Booking a Trip Soon? Use My Booking Checklist!
These are the sites I use most to book my own trips. Using the links below is a great way to support Bon Traveler’s travel journalism at no extra cost to you. If you need help organizing your itinerary, get my free travel itinerary template here.
1. Book Your Flights
Use Skyscanner to find the best flights. It searches 100s of airlines and websites across the globe to ensure you’re not missing out on any route options or deals.
2. Book Your Accommodations
Use Booking.com for hotels and guest houses. They have the biggest inventory and consistently offer the best rates.
3. Book Your Tours & Experiences
4. Book Your Car
Use Discover Cars or Rentalcars.com to find the best car rental deals. I recommend comparing rental agency reviews on Google to ensure you are booking with the best company in that destination, as the reviews are often more accurate than the car rental search engines.
5. Don’t Forget Airport Lounge Access
Get a Priority Pass membership to gain access to 1,400+ VIP lounges and airport experiences worldwide. The Priority Pass app is the first thing I check when I have a layover. I’ve been a member for over a decade, and having a comfortable place to relax before and between flights makes air travel so much more enjoyable.
6. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance
I never leave the country without travel insurance. It provides comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong (ie. illness, injury, theft, and cancelations, etc.). I use it frequently for my travels to stay protected.
My favorite companies that offer the best coverage and rates are:
