When Instagram incorporated the Stories, the platform users were somewhat skeptical. That is already far away, at the same distance as Snapchat, an application that gave a lot of itself but that seems to have disappeared from our terminals almost completely. Today we bring you the free apps for Instagram Stories They have become indispensable.
When Facebook acquired Instagram made changes to achieve an app that integrated everything without caring who was ahead. However, it seems that the uses we give to this tool are increasingly similar to a Hollywood production. In large part thanks to external tools that have managed to make the stories something much more complete than Snapchat poses.
Today we bring you some of the apps that will allow you to differentiate yourself from other users and that will bring you a little closer to the Oscar's red carpet. Ideal to combine them with those that you already use for the edition of the images that you upload to your profile.
The best way to squeeze Instagram is called Grambox

Unfold is basic to achieve some visual coherence in the Polaroid style
A tool like Unfold allows you to creation of visually beautiful and simple content. In fact, if you want to create highlights and don't know how, it's a good way to start. The app allows you to put a white frame in 9:16 format to your photographs and add text. Although the available typefaces are somewhat scarce, they are sufficient for non-professional use.
In addition, not requiring an account, is to enter, choose a frame and download the photo (or share it directly). It does not sin complex and its simplicity is what attracts the most attention. The aesthetics of the resulting photograph reminiscent of the Polaroid style How much you like it. Another reason why we love this app.
It is also possible to do the same with videos, and although there are no filters directly in the application, the simple fact of passing through the app any content homogenizes your Stories content.
The app that uses all influencer worth its salt: VSCO
Although VSCO has been available for download on Google Play for a while, it still doesn't go out of style. In fact, there are many image editing platforms available but none has succeeded in overthrowing the present. She is still the queen because Your filters are impeccable.
VSCO has become my retouching application after years abandoned
For a year I was using VSCO as a photo editing tool. After abandoning it for years I have used it again as a preferred application.
As always, if you pay you have much more (including video editing), but we promise you that it is not necessary to pay anything so that the photographs you are going to use in your Stories have a very successful vintage style.
Do not think small. Use VSCO first and then Unfold to achieve better results.
This does allow you to play many settings if you like to spend time editing: clarity, saturation, tone division, exposure, contrast or granulate (and it is worth using the latter). But the easiest is to walk through the filters and select the one you like best.
Our recommendation? Always use the same filter, both in Stories and in your publications. This will make your profile have an enviable feed.
Don't abuse Fyuse, but flip it with her
We were being too sober with this top of applications for stories, so here comes Fyuse. Although this platform is sold as a tool to take spatial photographs in three dimensions, the thing is simpler. You just have to record a very short video with the camera of the app, and you will have as a result a GIF with a feeling of depth quite achieved.
This tool goes further and It also works as a social network. Not only can you create these small assemblies, you can also grow on the platform and consume material from other users. You can follow the profiles that you like the most and visualize very successful creations. It is a universe to discover and in which to immerse yourself, it can become a vice.
Without a doubt, what we like most about Fyuse is its aesthetics. We do not get used to seeing proposals so far from the conventional. The most curious thing is that he decides not to imitate the greats, and it shows. Take a look because you can love it.
Another basic among the free apps for Instagram Stories: OVER
Another of our favorites. Between the free apps for Instagram Stories, surprise the bet of OVER What can we do with it? Great creations with a Very professional aesthetic. The first thing will be to choose the template we want. In this case, the vertical format of the Instagram Stories that the app itself provides you. The next step is to get carried away by your inspiration. Add images, video or text and combine it all.
Not all that glitters is gold. Although this tool has its free version, there are certain limitations that We can only unlock by accessing the PRO version (which we can try for a few days for free). OVER tempts us with a feed full of very successful templates that we cannot access, but which can help us create our own from scratch.
These types of applications are very useful in case you have to send a message to your followers. Instagram users tend to write with the tools of the platform itself, so it's a good way to differentiate and Get more dynamic and attractive messages. In addition, you have at your disposal a large number of free fonts to combine.

A blank canvas on which we will have brushes of all kinds and different layers to work with.

For the most creative it is the ideal app. In all of the above there are certain limitations, and the opposite is true here. The limits are set by your imagination.
