Best Instagram Stories Apps for iPhone in 2024

If someone says social media, the first app that pops up in my mind is Instagram. And I am pretty sure that it is the same case for everyone out there. Instagram has literally taken over Social Media and is the most loved app across the globe.

Now while we have excelled the whole feed situation on Instagram with everyone having an aesthetically pleasing feed using various scheduling apps, we are still learning the tricks of Instagram Stories. As they say, there is an app for everything out there. It becomes very very difficult to pick out the best from an ocean of apps.

Here we have curated a list of the best Instagram story apps for iPhone after trying a few dozens of them. While some of the apps were amazing, the others were just border-line tacky. Creating beautiful and cohesive Insta stories will definitely increase your engagement level with your audience, and they would want to keep coming back. So without any more blabber let’s get through this list.

1. Canva

This is by far, my favorite app to edit my Instagram stories in. Canva has tons of template options to offer, and you can customize it according to your preference. I have been through various apps to find the perfect Instagram stories app, but I keep coming back to Canva.

The best thing about this app apart from the multitude of graphics and fonts options is this app’s ability to create multiple pages in one folder. So usually I create folders according to dates and organize all the stories for that particular day in that folder.

The only downside to this app is that you will have to edit your photo outside of the app and then create an image that suits you.

Price: Free/In-app Purchase

2. Unfold  – Create Stories

Sometimes it is better to let your media do the talking without adding too many elements to the stories. We don’t want to take away the essence of it now, do we?

3. Phonto – Text on Photos

This app is handy to add fonts on your photos. It has a wide variety of fonts to choose from; you could also download fonts on this app for quick access. It would be like a playground for all those people who have a way with words.

I know you can do a pretty decent job of writing over images with the normal fonts Instagram has to offer but why not be different? Be as quirky and unique with your fonts and give a sense of individuality to your words.

4. InShot – Video Editor

This app is used to animate the text and it creates these really cool text animations, just one pro tip: do not use this app when you want your audience to focus on that beautiful picture you want to post; only use it when you have a blend background, and you want your users to really focus on the text and not the background. Let your words go crazy (quite literally) with this app.

It comes with an array of pre-designed templates to choose from. It also has a variety of free stock photos, fonts, and filters to add a personality to your stories.
