Instagram is going places

by Charlotte Ward

If you’ve got an iPhone chances are you will have or have heard of Instagram, a user-friendly camera and photo sharing app. It was recently announced that the app has managed to reach 5 million users sharing over 100 million photos.

There are a couple of things about this app that makes it so special and what could potentially make it HUGE. First and foremost, Instagram is a FREE app which obviously makes the biggest difference. The price however does not reflect on the quality of the app which has 16 different photo styles to choose from.

Secondly the app isn’t just a camera tool, but a sharing tool. Every picture you take is automatically shared around the Instagram network where photos can be liked and commented on, a social haven for photo enthusiasts.Then you’ve got a ‘popular’ section and news feed to top the app off. It’s also incredibly easy to use, no pretend camera buttons or contrast adjusters like other camera apps which tend to slow them down.

Thirdly, and I can validate this as a long-term Instagram user, the app is bug free, doesn’t crash and the updates actually work, sounds impossible right? The positive usability of this app can also be validated by 2276 ratings on the apple app store which shows an average rating of 5 out of 5 stars – pretty good.

So if you’re looking for a decent camera app to take some fun photos on your iPhone, don’t bother spending any money because Instragram is here to stay.
