A Color Story is the latest app from the lifestyle bloggers, A Beautiful Mess. There are so many apps out there to tweak your pictures for use on Instagram, etc, so what makes this one so good?

First, it’s free with in app purchases available. That’s a positive because you want to make sure that you like the app before coughing up your hard earned pennies for it! The basics are free though, including certain filters, and the ability to adjust things like curves and brightness



The app is easy to use – above is what you will see when you open an image up to edit. You can access these items later on in the app if you don’t want to crop it yet


As well as filters and editing features, there are things you can add on to your images like light flare, bokeh (the little light colour dots on an image) and what they call colour fog (which is where you can move a coloured block on the image) and you can save the steps you like if you find a combination that you love.

The app is free for iOS, and an Android version is being worked on. Additional filters and options are generally 79p each, with a few costing £1.49 but for the most cost effective option to get everything, you can buy all 92 filters and 46 effects for £5.99 at the moment. Head to A Color Story to download for your device!
