Luckily, there are a lot of free apps to download to get this effect. But to ease your search, we've narrowed down it down to two top picks!

How To Get That Polaroid Effect For Your Photos Using Your Phone

Prequel

Downloading this app oddly makes photo editing both easy and difficult at the same time. There are lots of filters and effect combinations, so you could come out with whatever #aesthetic you want to achieve. On the flip side, because of the wide choices, you might have a hard time selecting the best result. (Free on the App Store and Google Play.)

This app is for people who are too lazy to edit. Simply upload the pic you want and choose the Inst SQC (for square frames) and Inst C (for portrait frames) to score the Polaroid and Instax look. The frame colors can be adjusted, plus the frame has the texture of an actual instant photograph. (Free on the App Store.)

Sample photos using Polaroid and Intax filters:
