Editing on the go can be so easy if you have the right apps.  The right editing apps for your phone are so essential! Here is our list of apps which are great for both video and photo.


You can add clouds, crop, blur backgrounds, add grainy film for a vintage look and so many other great things! Really great app if you are on the go and just need a quick touchup on your photo! 


This app is truly so genius just like the creator Tezza Barton. There’s a reason it’s gotten millions of downloads already. When I’m looking for a certain vintage pop I often use the presets from this app and sometimes even apply it on top of my own presets for IG stories. You can choose your preset (they are all great), lower the opacity, adjust the colors, brightness (all that good stuff) and also add grain. My fave part is the video editing tool. You can add a preset to your videos giving it that magic touch and a vintage camera effect. Perfect for IG stories! You do have to pay a pretty penny for the perks but it’s really worth it.  


This is my favorite editing app and it’s FREE! It takes a bit to understand, but once you do you can really do so much! I love it because I can save my presets from my computer and use them on this lightroom app as well. It’s great if you use other creators’ Lightroom presets as well! You can also sync your Lightroom desktop photos to it. You can adjust lighting, saturation, select what part you want to edit or change the color of, add grain and save a custom preset you created via the app. I also love that you can edit in RAW so if you have built-in wifi to your camera, you can send it to this app and edit on the go. 


This one is great for beginners who don’t want too much fuss. The Vsco app has its own filters which can be fun to play around with. You can also join the VSCO community and share your photos with other users on the app. You can do all the normal stuff like adjust brightness, saturation, colors, etc but can also customize your presets to make your own. I think the best part about VSCO is the community where you can search hashtags to see what other creators are uploading. 


The Facetune app is a must-have! It’s great for removing blemishes, fixing something on your face you don’t like, smoothing out wrinkles and almost anything you can think of. You can even whiten teeth and give yourself a waist if you choose to do so. Make sure to not OVER EDIT on this app! Doing that can easily make your image look overprocessed (which never looks good).



This is great for your Instagram Stories. I love adding fun borders and an artistic touch to an otherwise boring photo. You can have film looking frames, collages, ripped paper look and more.  If you pay for the upgraded version you can customize further like branding the borders with your IG handle or brand name.
