Afterlight Photo Editing App Pairs Really Well With Instagram

Yet another photo editing app has made its way to Android, after having generated quite a following on iOS, but don’t worry, this is a good one. The app’s name is Afterlight, and it brings a ton of customizable filters, frames, settings, plus effects to your fingertips for all of those Instagram photos you want to post. 

Of course, the app only comes with so many settings and effects, but additional packs are available via $0.99 in-app purchases. The main selling point would be its hipster-tastic filters, but I would argue that its smooth wannabe integration with Instagram is more important.

Upon opening on the app, you can choose to take a photo with an IG-like camera app, saving yourself the hassle of cropping your photos taken with the stock camera app on your phone. Once a photo is taken, you can edit, then instantly upload to Instagram or any other social site.

The app is priced at $0.99, and even though it comes with IAPs, the basic app features plenty of good settings to make the price worth it. But for the sake of full transparency, if you haven’t check out Snapseed, that’s the app you really want.

    Awesome.. another app you need to use with the other app just to get social. Social networking is just such a waste of time and effort.

      You don’t need instagram to use this app, only to share the photos into instagram… This app in itself has nothing to do with being “social” it would be a waste of time to have its own social platform included.

      I hate the idea of pay a little bit for a little bit of features (i.e. $1.99 for themes or something of the like), or pay full price to unlock the app completely (i.e. $5.99 for the whole damn thing).

    Am I missing something – what’st he difference between Snapseed and G+ photos app? Does Snapseed have more settings, because they look identical to me.

      Not much, since Google acquired Snapseed, they brought like all the Snapseed features into Google+ and the Photos app.
