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.

Awesome Read – The Art of iPhoneography

The Art of iPhoneography

iPhoneography – New Artform? New Format? or simply a new fad? Agree or not, iPhoneography is here to stay. With the ever growing number of camera apps and photo editing apps and the ever-increasing popularity with Instagram, iPhoneography is heading up to yet another level. For those who wish to embark on this great journey, to learn to shoot with the iPhone, to enter this unique community out there, this Book, The Art of iPhoneography, might just be the perfect place for you to start.

The definition of of iPhoneography, as stated in the Preface of the book, states: “Like pinhole, film, or microscopic photography, we’re focused on the act and art of photography defined by the device used to create the image. iPhoneography is the art of shooting and processing (editing and enhancing) digital images using an iPhone”. iPhoneography to a certain extent is not only about taking pictures with an iPhone but more of an artform created by the photographer. “iPhoneography can help you practice spontaneity, loosen up your traditional approach to photography, and stretch your view…..ultimately making you a better photographer.
