There are more than a few Instagram clients for Windows 8, but they usually have too many features and are difficult to use. Instapic from Applyf is different because it offers many of the functions you’ve come to love on Instagram with added features that enhance its functionality, like easy uploading of images to your account.
Fantasia Painter from Nokola is one of the many photography apps for Windows, but what makes it different from the rest is that it’s also a powerful painting app. So if you’re not content with just applying filters to images and want to be more creative, Fantasia Painter lets you do that.
Adobe Slate from Adobe lets you create a narrative with your images (and can also be used to create simple web pages) using themes and templates. Adobe Slate isn’t just a photo sharing app as it’s also great for jazzing up newsletters, reports or simply tell a story with your photos, making this a versatile addition to your device.
Color Splash Effects by Kite Games Studio is a photo editing app for the iOS, but instead of just focusing on the special effects, what the app does is let you apply coloring effects selectively on images, a really fun feature especially if you only want to use an effect on a particular part of an image.
There are a lot of drawing apps on the iOS and Android, but the problem with these is they’re often too difficult to learn quickly, ending up in added frustration. If you love graphics and colors but don’t want to get worked up about it, try Colorfy from Fun Games for Free – a coloring book app for your mobile, where you do nothing more than color images. Simple yes, but it’s relaxing and soothing.
Instagram is a solid platform as it is, but there are times when you wish that it can do more when it comes to making collages. Fortunately Instagram just released an app called Layout that lets you do just that. It’s also free and very easy to use.
