With the millions and millions of people that’s sharing Instagram stories, you might want to make your own stories stand out. Sure, they’re bound to disappear after 24 hours anyway, but they can leave a long-lasting impression if you give them something special that other users’ stories don’t normally have. And that something special may very well be motion typography, which you can easily add to your stories by using a new app called Hype Type.
Different styles. To start with Hype Type, pick an existing photo or video from your device’s library or shoot a new still photo or video clip within the app. Then choose the animated text style and color scheme for your image caption, making sure you pick the ones that suit the vibe of your photo or video. Drag the text to move it around the image, double tap the text to edit your caption, and if you can’t think of something interesting to say, tap the quotation mark button to generate a random caption.
Different tools. Aside from the different animated text styles and color schemes, Hype Type also provides easy-to-use editing tools for speeding up, slowing down, flipping, or reversing your videos. This means more ways for your stories to stand out beyond motion typography. Once you’re satisfied with how your story looks, export it for sharing on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, or wherever else you want to showcase your motion typography-enhanced photo or video.

Why we love it
Instead of using the same basic tools — the same basic fonts, in particular — that everyone else uses, you can use Hype Type to make your stories unique with motion typography and therefore more reflective of your lifestyle and personality. With additional tools for editing videos, Hype Type has more than enough to recommend itself for daily use and especially for capturing and sharing fascinating, amusing, or otherwise appealing moments, such as a trip to the summit of a mountain, a tasteful cooking video, or simply a fun night out.
Hype Type Animated Text Videos is FREE but there are more add-ons
App Store Description
Hype your Stories with automatically styled and designed motion typography.

Short of words? We got you.
With the tap of a magical little button automatically pull random, meaningful quotes to give context to your story that may have not been there to start.
A few situations you might find HypeType useful:
- You're on top of a mountain, overlooking the vastness of the island and ocean. At that moment the meaning of life comes to you in 100 characters or less. Share it with some style! Do it justice. Please for the love of your friends & followers, don't use that same font that everyone else uses.
- You're at a rooftop pool party on top of the tallest building in LA. The view is... warm. You're gonna share (brag) on your story. Add some text that matches the quality of that perfectly bronzed current outlook you have on life. Shine on.
- You cook. It's your thing. Not only that but you like to school your friends and followers with those dank recipes. Bust it story style with HypeType. Film a step, write instructions, share & repeat till tummies are full and happy.
- Pet peeve: when your friends sing the wrong lyrics, but they sing it so loudly and with so much conviction, you question if you're the one who's had it wrong. Spell it out for them on HypeType.
