Instagram, the crazy popular
iPhone smartphone app is pretty slim in it’s features. You can take photos, add trendy filters, and share those photos. There’s also a limited browse and search feature but that’s it. They don’t have a web interface and don’t offer much in terms of portfolio or image management and extensive search tools are certainly absent. Thankfully, a growing number of third party web apps are seizing the opportunity and capitalizing on the istagram feeding frenzy.
I’m a big fan of StickyGram. A few weeks ago we were lucky to have a StickyGram giveaway on TogTech where prizes were awarded to everyone who entered. Their little instagram magnets are a great idea – I just ordered a batch, my fridge needs more magnets.
ExtraGram provides a simpler cleaner layout compared to Webstgarm. The inerface is dark
Statigram is an instagram account management tool. It allows you to follow your instagram stats, browse photos and chat with other users.
If you can’t get enough of Pinterst, you’ll love Pingram. Essentially a Pinterest for instagram.
Gramfeed is again, a search and browse web app. Unique to this site is the location search which can be cool for finding near-by instagram-ers and yet another reminder why you shouldn’t post your geo-location on all your photos.
Webstagram is essentially an online web view for instagram. It let’s you search, like, browse, comment on the photos you find. It has it’s fair share of ads and blinking lights but is a decent solution to bringing your photo browsing online.
Another instagram browser – another simple and elegant interface. Ads on the site are relatively subtle, save a few somewhat annoying pop-ups.
Instaport is the go-to web app for backing up your instagram portfolio.
Instagrid is an elegant portfolio building tool for your insta-photos, letting people who aren’t on instagram follow your feed
Hashtagram is a full page image viewer which shows a live feed of any hash tag. Great for conferences or parties where you want to show images from your event live on the big screen.
