Last summer I decided to ditch my iphone for a phone I could use with a cheaper plan. I didn't think I'd miss it that much and I mostly don't except I'm so jealous of all of you instagram people! I've been waiting for instagram to come to android but in the meantime, I've discovered this great little app called "Vignette". It doesn't have the social qualities of instagram but you can create some really nice images with it and share it directly from the app to whatever social media you like to use.

I've never actually used instagram before  so I can't really compare the apps but Vignette has a lot of cool filters, effects and crops you can use. Most of the time, a filter can go really over the top, so you have to adjust something elsewhere but its kind of fun problem solving and working within these constraints.

I'm still playing around with a lot of its features but so far I'm really enjoying it. Give it a try!

I've mostly been showing these on twitter so follow me if you want to see them pop up from time to time.


  1. picplz has most of the instagram features (social, filters, phone app) and is available for android!

    1. I downloaded picplz at the same time as Vignette but I haven't gotten around to really playing around with it yet. I'll definitely try something out with it soon!

  2. I have been loving these, as you well know.

  3. I'm jealous of instagram too! thats a bit sad isn't it?!
