InstaStory Challenge Day 2

How did your first day of the challenge go? It has been fun to see your stories, keep tagging us in them so we can repost them!

Today we are going to talk about ways to jazz up your stories and make them stand out from everyone else's.

Here are our three favorite apps for creating beautiful stories!


Unfold is an app specifically for creating Instagram Stories. It makes it super easy to create multiple-page stories and has tons of minimalist templates to keep your stories clean and simple.

Combine text, images, and videos all in one post.

WordSwag is a great choice if you're creating a text post. It's so simple to use and perfect for anyone who has no design experience. Start using WordSwag and people will think you're a professional graphic designer in no time.

Canva comes with tons of free backgrounds and fonts. It even has a library of quotes to use if you aren't sure what to write!

The days of boring stories are Over (ha ha hah). The template options in Over are endless. While it's not quite as simple as Unfold and WordSwag, you sure can create some incredible stories.

We use Over to create stories announcing our new blog posts!

NOTE: This app is unfortunately only available on iPhones. Hopefully an Android version is in the works!
