    "InShot is an excellent app to add to your collection, especially if you're an avid Instagram'er. It adds things that Instagram doesn't have in the base app to make your posts really awesome."

    "This is good, but only makes text dramatic, and gives the text personality, it doesnt do anything for the actual editing or the pics/video. If you are looking for nice looking text this is your go to app. If you need editing etc. You will have to find something else."

    This free video app that's available only for iOS devices. Using Hyperlapse from Instagram, users can capture time-lapse videos even in motion. It has an automatic stabilization tool feature and allows users to speed up their videos 12x faster.

    "I think that Hyperlapse is definitely one of the better apps used for this specific purpose. I am not overly familiar with Instagram, but my younger siblings use it and I know for a fact that one of them uses this app. The app seems to have many features that allow an amateur to make videos that resemble a professional quality."

    "I was searching for best apps for creating Instagram stories and found Boomerang for Instagram. I use this app and it is cool for quick movement clips. It is a fun app to use but I don't think the best app to use for Instagram stories. "
