Diptic – Helping You Become a Better Instagram Fanboy

When I first got on Instagram earlier this week, I noticed some people had cool collage and other effects on their photos that the Instagram app did not offer. This made me quite jelly. After receiving a tip from a reader, I discovered Diptic. The process of creating some cool photos is as easy as one, two, three. You choose the layout you want, edit your colors and all that stuff, then just share it to Instagram. 

I will say, it definitely doesn’t feature all of the same customization ability that the iOS version offers, but I can hope that will change in a future update. For only 99 cents, it’s not bad at all.

Update: We have had tons of suggestions for other apps just like this one. Check them out too:

Photo Grid | Photo Shake | Pudding Camera 

Play Link ($0.99)

    Photo Grid works great, has more downloads, and better ratings than the other choices. http://distilleryimage4.instagram.com/f9c3a248806211e1a39b1231381b7ba1_7.jpg

    Thanks for the photogrid tip droid-life community. 

  • Viciousking1914

    You know…..there’s also this thing called the ICS camera that comes packed loaded with cool fx and what not………..just thought i’d share 🙂

    • Telling it like it is

      too bad only 2 percent of users have access to that…..

    • LionStone

      Even my stock TB has a bunch of filters/effects built in…htc rocks like that.

      This guy reeally loves his itsagram though.

  • rohicks

    Photogrid is better IMO and it’s free.

    • EvanTheGamer

      Photo Grid is freaking fantastic and works like a charm:

  • tharealoc

    Photo grid does this too but it’s free and supports more than 2 photos. So far it seems pretty well designed

  • Lacockanostra

    Dude I love your pets 🙂

    • Gostang69

      I believe thats the same dog just a little older now.

      • Yea, one pic is 10 weeks, the next is 14 weeks. He’s still a pup

  • photo grid is a free option with less customizations

  • Face

    Oh look, I can make perfectly good crisp pictures and make them washed out and “old-looking”

    • Samvccarroll

      “Crisp” depends on if you took your pic with a Nexus or not

    • Droidzilla

      This. It’s like making a gourmet meal and then peeing in it.

  • ph0oky

    methinks all these instagram related posts are just timotato’s excuse to post screenshots with his instagram username to try to get more followers  😛

    • If only it was that easy! I could just say FOLLOW ME FOLLOW ME in a post 😛

      • EdubE24

        I say thanks for all the great tips on an awesome app!!

    diptic works great for editing and combining pictures for anything, especially Instagram. Only thing im not a fan of is when you upload to instagram sometimes their photo sizing cuts off your sweet editing.

      What’s with the first permission when you go to install? Anyone know what this is?  First glance looks suspicious to me.


  • Weebeethem

    Try photoshake too. Its free but a pay version with more options is available as well.

  • jeradc

    This made me quite jelly? For seriously?

    • David

      This was my exact reaction.

  • Droidzilla

    I still don’t get the whole “Instagram” thing. Maybe I’m just an old fuddy-duddy.

    Now get off of my lawn with your baggy clothes and your rap music!

    • Weebeethem

      That’s rapptiy rap to you old geezer!

    • I didn’t really get it either but I like it a lot. Its not really about the filters. Instagram has its own network going. Kinda like Twitter only a million times less insufferable because you don’t have to hear the s–t that comes out of people’s mouth. I don’t use the filters in the actual app though. Most of the time I just use third-party stuff and just share through it. 

    • EvanTheGamer

      What’s not to get? It’s a photo social media app.

      • Droidzilla

        Hey? Get a haircut, hippy!

        • EvanTheGamer

          Wait…WHAT?! You talkin’ to me? YOU talkin’ to me?!?!

          Okay, fine, I’ll get a haircut as soon as I get a rocket-powered car.
