Flickr

flickr iconFlickr is an app owned by Yahoo. Originally it was a social network for photography lovers, which it still is. You can find lots of beautiful pictures there as well as share your own ones. More than that, though, the app allows you to create, store and share albums of photos. You are given 1000 GB of space for doing that, which for most of us is more than enough! So, if you need an app that will enable you to store/share your pictures safely, this one is definitely worth a try.

Tumblr

tumblr iconTumblr is an enormous blogging platform that allows you to share all kinds of stuff, starting with photos, videos, texts and ending with GIFs, quotes, audios, etc. So, as you can see, it is not exactly a photo sharing app – it is much more than that. However, many users exploit the platform exactly for sharing their creative sides – there are lots of famous photographers, artists, writers who use Tumblr in order to share their works (which means you can not only publish your own pictures, but you can also get inspired by other photographers).

Earlier, nobody really took Tumblr that serious – it was considered to be a platform for teenagers who shared the stuff they were interested in. Now, however, having discovered that the platform actually does have lots of useful features, many ‘serious bloggers’ have also started to use it. It is no surprise – the platform gives you a lot of freedom in all of the aspects connected with blogging: you can post as many pics as you want to, you can add tags in order to make your pics discovered by others and, more than that, you can customize your theme to make it look exactly the way you want! How awesome is that? Join Tumblr today and express yourself to a greater extent!

VSCO

vsco iconVSCO is a very popular service these days. This one is designed specially for photographers, however, it doesn’t mean that if you are ‘a regular user’, you shouldn’t get it. In fact, the basic idea of the app is sharing a variety of experiences people have around the world. Authenticity is what matters most here – unlike the other apps, this one doesn’t support such attributes as public followers, likes or comments. What is more, the app just has lots of great features, such as amazing filter packs, editing tools, and sharing/saving options. So, try this one and see if it suits you!

The app is full of useful features! Everything that you need to deal with photos is in one place, which is great! You can apply filters, frames, vignettes.

Cluster

cluster iconCluster is quite similar to the app above, although there are certain differences. It’s not just a family book, but it surely can be a one. What it can also be is a private chat app for sharing photos. You can create different types of groups like the ones that include friends, family, coworkers, homies, etc., and you can share pics with them that are not appropriate for Facebook.

Of course, you can say ‘what are private chats on social media for?’ But the thing is that while on social media chats pictures get lost all the time, this app will keep them safe & secure! So, once again, if you’re worried about your privacy, try Cluster and see if it works for you!
