Review Insta Shape Pro

Interesting functionality, nice interface, stylish design
Full version is paid, pop-up ads
Insta Shape Pro for Android is a tool for very quickly cropping any of your photos into cool shapes, applying a filter, and putting them against a gradient or patterned background.
The shapes available for free include heart, circle, triangle, tessellated triangle, cross and various rectangles. There are loads more complex shapes available in the "pro pack" for $2.49, including football, butterfly, ladybird, snowflake and so on. Once you've picked the shape, you can tap away to randomly shuffle the background and filter, or you can pick them yourself. Then you can share your results on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.
Insta Shape is extremely easy to use, and the results are quite pleasing. But I'm not sure how much mileage you get out of differently shaped photos. Once you've done it a few times to make heart shaped photos of your loved ones, the novelty kind of wears off. Some of the other shapes might be contextually interesting (a football for people at a football match?).
But I find it's often better just to share the original photos. But if you want to crop photos into interesting shapes, and do it almost instantly - this app could be a good formula for you. Give your social media and Instagram photos an interesting twist with this convenient little shape cutter app.
