Part of the the appeal of Instagram is it’s simplicity. But when you’re ready to explore more than just sharing photos and videos, here are seven great apps to get more out of Instagram.

Instarepost

instarepost

Social media works better when we share the love. Unfortunately, the simple act of reposting someone else’s great content is not a feature of Instagram. Instarepost lets you share someone else’s post on your own timeline.

PicFrame

Picframe lets you combine multiple photos and videos into one frame to post to Instagram. It includes 73 different frames and lets you add up to nine photos per frame. You also can add text to images.

Over

Printstagram

If you love Instagram photos on your mobile phone, you are going to double-love them printed off. Trust me. And Printstagram is the best.

Afterlight

Tired of square photos? Afterlight adds a border on the left/right or top/bottom of your images so you can show horizontal or vertical images on Instagram. But that’s not all it does. Afterlight includes other photo editing tools such as filters, textures and adjustment tools.

Price: 99 cents

Squareready

Video was meant to be horizontal (learn about VVS here). Squareready lets you show your full video by adding a white frame at the top and bottom of the post.
