The hyper FREE app: custom your life!
Instagram is a popular photo and video sharing app that requires only a couple of touches to produce retro-looking projects and then share them with friends and other Instagram members. Even the most unskillful guy in the world can reach the best pics and videos with Instagram.
With recent updates, the app adds video letting you add filters and post to your feed much like you do with photos. It also got a new way to adjust many other matizes with this app because Instagram is getting bigger and bigger with all its instagrammers so the developers of the app decided to include a “Setting” option so you can add brightness and contrast, texture, focus, structure, color warmth, color, you can attenuate the color and the shadows of the picture, make a blur, etc.
But… what does it make special to Instagram?
What’s really special about the Instagram phenomenon is how users have used the app to create a story about their everyday lives through stylized photos and videos.
Let’s start using Instagram!
Simple as you start by signing up with Instagram with an e-mail address, username, and password.
From there you can configure Instagram to autopost to Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, Foursquare, and Posterous, or just choose to share images from within the app or via e-mail. Amazing, right? You can also turn any of these options on or off if you don’t want to share your shots with everyone.
Once you’re connected, you’ll be able to snap a photo wherever you are, move and scale the image, add an effect with a touch of your finger, and then touch the button ‘Done’ to share your photographic moment with the world.
After only a few minutes of use, it’s easy to see how Instagram’s video features could unseat Vine as the go-to social video app. With Instagram, you get more time to shoot, you can choose from several filters, you can pick your cover frame, and you get the giant Instagram audience to showcase your work. There will still definitely be an audience for creative, 6-second videos on Vine, and the continuous loop is something not found on Instagram, but for the most part, Instagram is the new best of class.
Explore others’ photo and video moments
Even with just the features mentioned, this free app would already be easy to recommend, but a couple of added features make it even better. Once signed up with Instagram, you can follow other Instagram users on the Feed page, which shows recent images taken by you and your friends. Here you can comment and “like” photos and Facebook integration means you can also “like” it on Facebook. Switch tabs to look at a Popular list that shows all the most popular Instagram images from all users. You can search for tags and users in the recently added Explore section. You also can look at a News tab, which shows the latest actions by your connected friends (liked, commented, or otherwise), so you can see what your friends are currently looking at. These features make Instagram an app you might look at every day, just to see what your friends are up to.
Instagram also can categorize your photos and videos by location. The app automatically gathers all your past Instagram media where you activated geotagging and puts them on a map so you and your followers can browse by location.
The app defaults to showing all geotagged images and videos (once you have given the OK), but you can select or deselect photos and videos if you don’t want certain locations to show on the map. With the new features, people will have a Photo Map button in their profile pages that you can touch to show a map of all their images.
