Here are a list of the top apps and tools that can help you up your Instagram game:

CutStory

Create a seamless video for your Instagram Story with the CutStory app. Import videos of any length or format and let the app cut 15 second clips in chronological order, so you can simply publish to your Instagram Story.

Linktree
