4 alternatives to Instagram

Since the Instagram has been purchased by Facebook, some people may worry about their privacy’s security. You may want to find an alternative to Instagram. I’d like to introduce 4 great  Instagram alternatives.


PicPlz is very similar to Instagram. It have rich filters. Surely, social network functions are also included. The PicPlz interface on iOS is exactly like Instagram’s.

PizPlz is a strong competitor of Instagram. You can connect to 8 social network account. The biggest problem is the weak social network function.  There are no much users. This make PicPlz not so funny like Instagram. However, PicPlz is still the first choice if you want to drop Instagram. This is also a SNS. You will soon adapt to PicPlz.


The Path is a mobile social network. Path users are very willing to share pictures.

Compared to Instagram, Path can not let users choose hot picture. But it can also let users gain much focus among their private network. Users like to show their feeling on pictures by expressions.  Path also provides rich filters. Compared to PicPlz, Path provides more powerful social functions.

Hipstamatic or Pixlr-o-matic

For those people who just need to take memory other than share pictures with friends, camera apps only for taking photos are suitable. There are many apps in the apple store.  Hipstamatic and  Pixlr-o-matic are the best.

Hipstamatic has rich filters. It provides 3 modules: camera lens, flash lamp and roll film. Each module have more than 10 filters. You can combine these filters. Similar to Hipstamatic, the Pixlr-o-matic also have rich filters.

Compared to Pixlr-o-matic, Hipstamatic owns more powerful social network sharing features. It allows users share picture to  Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr. The Pixlr-o-matic let users choose from Facebook, Flickr, imm.io, Dropbox and Email.

However, the picture effects are enough on both two apps.
