We've got a tool that can help you ensure that you post only the best pictures possible on social media. The PicArt app can be used on your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone and gives you a way to really jazz up your photos in all kinds of ways. When you're finished adding stickers, text, frames, and filters you can then post your photo on Flickr, Weibo, Moments, Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook for all to enjoy. What's great is that anyone can use this app with ease there is no photo editing experience necessary.

Create Unforgettable Photos

If you find your photos aren't really being noticed maybe it's time you add some elements to them. The PicArt app makes it possible to add text, stickers, frames, filters, and more to your pictures. When you finish being creative with your pictures you can then post them on Moments, Facebook, Flickr, Instagram, Tumblr, and Twitter. This is a sure way to get more likes, follows, and comments on your pictures. As mentioned this app has been created to be user-friendly and simple so there is no photo editing experience required.

The best Instagram apps for iPad

The app is free to use but you'll find many of the features and options require in-app purchases of packs, which is a shame. These in-app purchases are all priced at $0.99 but before you know it you could be spending a lot on them. The app requires iOS 7.0 or later to use and has just been updated to be compatible with iOS 8. The app currently has four out of five stars from users.

Transform your Photos

When it comes to transforming your photos there is plenty you can do using the app. Add a cool frame, include text to really bring home the message of your photo, use the blur effect (rect blur, cover blur, ellipse blur, or circle blur), include fun and cute stickers, apply a professional looking sticker and plenty more. It should be noted when you add text you can choose the color and font personalizing the look even further. Your photos can be exported as high-res and they will be organized in the library by date. If you like to use hashtags for Instagram you can do that as well, which can help you get more likes.

Best iphone and ipad apps

All-in-all the app is simple and sleek with some nice basic features. I wish there was a little more included for free but it's definitely enough to get a feel for the app.
