The best Instagram Story Apps in 2020 | Instagram Guide

Title photo with four different photos for the blog post: The best Instagram Story apps in 2019

Let’s bring your story game on another level with the best Instagram Story Apps in 2020!


Are you posting Instagram stories?
Do you use apps to design them?

Instagram Stories are a great way to share content with your followers and to rank better in the new Instagram algorithm.

But let’s be honest: The in-app options are not outstanding and the selection of third party apps is huge, so which are the best Instagram Story Apps?

Don’t worry, we tested many and the following apps are in our opinion the best Instagram Story Apps in 2020, especially if you want your stories to be more aesthetic and appealing to make them more interesting for your Instagram followers.

Note: All these apps are for free but have in app purchase options which are not really necessary.



Canvas for Instagram Story designed with the unfold app

It’s a great app to create collages because its easy to use and has many creative options to combine photos/videos or additional texts.

You can download the app here:

Unfold <- Google Play Store

Unfold <- App Store

The free canvases are great but we bought the Ripped Paper package because we really like the design features of that package.



Canvas for Instagram Story designed with the StoryArt app

This app is similar to Unfold. We don’t use it often but it’s nice to have it in addition because it has some different styles.

You can download the app here:

StoryArt <- Google Play Store

StoryArt <- App Store



Instagram Story designed with the Mojo app

If you are looking for an app with animations, we can highly recommend you Mojo. It’s our favorite app to design animated collages and we love to use the implemented Music.

You can download the app here:

Mojo <- App Store

Mojo <- Google Play Store



Canvas for Instagram Story designed with the Canva app

With Canva you can design more than just Instagram stories. You can also use it for Pinterest covers or even to design your Media Kit.

You can download the app here:

Don’t just dump your videos in the stories but add some effects or background music to them.

A simple and easy to use app with nice awesome implemented music is InShot.
You can even use it to color grade photos.

You can download the app here:

InShot <- Google Play Store

InShot <- App Store

InShot is one of the apps where we actually invested money.
We bought the transition pack for some cool transitions and a color grading pack which both make the video look more professional.
