Instagram filters are starting to get boring. I mean, it’s been years since the social media platform was released and yet there has hardly been any significant change or update to its collection of filters. As I scroll through my Instagram feed I am met with self-proclaimed photographers applying the same generic filters then claiming and labeling these cringe worthy images as artisan pieces.

Along comes Rhonna Designs which offers something new.

First up, Rhonna Designs offers something that everyone wants but is surprisingly not integral in any social media application yet.


The ability to place fancy text and simplistic objects beautifully on top of your image, creating a personalized effect that screams ‘you’. Adjustable font sizes and whatnot add to the making the whole process even better.

Next we have filters and frames, which serve to further customize and beautify your tastefully taken photos. With the myriad of options available to use, it’s extremely easy to give a cutesy Polaroid-esque effect on your photos.

The ability to directly upload to social media gave further plus points, as it further added on to Rhonna Designs‘ primary selling point of convenience.

However, priced at $1.99, I was unable to understand or justify the rationale behind having in-app purchases when I had to make an initial purchase. It was frustrating to see that I still had to make do with limitations and restrictions even though it was a paid app. I’d say get this app if you have the spare cash, but there are equally wonderful and possibly better alternatives available for free on the AppStore.

Quick Take


Would I Buy Again:No

Learning Curve:NA

Who Is It For:People who love Instagram and uploading pictures on social media

What I Like:It's really convenient to have filters,overlays and frames all within the same app. The awesome designs are also another plus point.

What I Don't Like:In-app purchases for a paid app seems ridiculous to me
