The Complete Instagram App Guide

The past year definitely is the year for Instagr.am. Shortly after it’s initial launch back in October 2010, Instagr.am has gained over 7 million users which have shared over 100 million pictures and the numbers are climbing steeply, some predicted to reach 10 million by Thanksgiving. Alongside Instagr.am, a bunch of third-party apps follow suit, either as add-ons or get-on-the-wagon type useless apps. The list is ever-growing. To know which is the best amongst these apps, we need a complete guide or roadmap just to make sure that we’re getting the right app.

The Next Web (TNW) ran a very good story this week covering the major Instagram apps and breaking them down into different categories. To name a few, their story included apps like -

  • Inkstagram
  • Pictarine
  • ExtraGram
  • Webstagram
  • Gramfeed
  • Carousel
  • Flipboard
  • InstaFB
  • Gramjunction
  • Instadrop
  • Insta-Great…….

and the list goes on and on…. practically one can make an app and have “insta” or “stagram” as part of the name an it would work, LOL. For full read, go to the TNW link here. Hope your find the guide useful. Happy reading.

Instagram App on Your Mac – Carousel

For those who loves shooting and sharing their pictures using Instagram on their iPhone, don’t you just wish that you can view your feeds on your Mac.  Well, the guys over at Mobelux have come up with an Instagram client for the Mac, the Carousel.

The app is not on the App Store yet but for now, you can buy it for half the introductory price of US$4.99 on their website.  The app features allows one to

view their Feed, Popular and Profile photos with a choice of app themes;

follow and explore users, like, comment, moderate comments, and more;

use keyboard shortcuts to quickly traverse your feed, like, comment, and more; and

drag & drop to save full-size photos to your Mac, or iPhoto.

Check it out now, with all the hype with the Instagram app, this is must-have extension to it. The interface is slick and simple.  Highly recommend.
