Hehe Stop Hating… i am Awesome 🙂

Well yesterday I reloaded my Blackberry Os
And downloaded the App back Lo and Behold… There was an update of the App… Yay!!! And then I downloaded and 😦 I found out it was just a Web launcher which is just like googling the meaning of the “word u need to search for”…

What it does is that it takes u to a link where you can now search for the “word”

What happened to our cool and wonderful app 😦 so I checked throu the review and a lot of people were complaining about the upgrade

So I found a Link to the old Version and I decided to share as most pple may be having a problem with it also

Instagram

Hi people, as many of us that are internet regulars, you might have heard about what I will be sharing in this post. But if you are not internet lovers like we are, it is the free app available on iTunes called “Instagram”.

Instagram is an app that presents to you a fun and quick way to share your life with friends and loved ones through a series of pictures. It is simple; take a picture with your iPhone or your iPod, choose any of the filters available to edit and transform the look and the feel of the shot into a very good picture to keep in memories for a long time.

Getting started

The first thing you do after installing Instagram is to create an Instagram account. Currently, you can’t sign in with your facebook or twitter account as most services nowadays are doing. You have to open an account with them, which will need you to enter your email address, user name and optionally your phone number and a photo. You can search for friends through Facebook or twitter. It searches for your friends and followers on those social sites and gives you the option to “follow” them.

The exciting thing about Instagram is that the CEO and founder is a former twitter staff, and there are also rumours that an ex- Facebook staff is also in the fold; so you will have the feel of a twitter site and UI. You will have to “follow” the activities of a friend and also, you will see the UI of the followers and who you are following.

Interface

Once you take a photo on an iPod or iPhone, a scrollable gallery of effects appears along the bottom of the screen. They are useful and exciting as you will be able to resize the pictures to fit into the compulsory square that Instagram demands. After editing and tweaking your picture, you can then choose how you want to share it. There are different choices, which include sharing to Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, and Tumblr.

Whenever any of your social contacts clicks the entry, a webpage designed by Instagram opens and then the person can view your pictures. There are also options to comment on the picture or “heart” it. The time of upload is also shown at the top of the photo. You also have the option of viewing popular pictures and a stream to show photos just uploaded. There is also provision to set your photo stream to private so that only users you approve can see it, but there is no option for private messaging.

The Positives

The ease in checking through other people that have liked or commented on a picture that you have been interested in poses an addiction to this application, so there is a tendency for a widespread usage.

The Negatives

Currently, there are no Android, Blackberry, Windows or iPad versions. It is limited to iPods and iPhones from iOS 3.12 and above. The final picture output are small in size, as there are strict small boxes the pictures have to fit into.

For iPad owners, there is an Instagram browser for iPads, called Instapad which you will be able to sign into Instagram and view the pictues on a larger screen. A screenshot of the Instapad is shown below:

 

Bottom Line

Instagram combines a handful of photo effects with a photo-based social networking niche. Flickr might not be common in this part of the world, but reviews have adviced that we shouldn’t expect that Instagram will take over flickr soon. But in fairness, we should give it up to the Instagram team, as they have redefined photo effects and editing, thereby making us create memorable pictures we want to keep for a long time to come.

So if you have an Ipod touch or an iPhone with iOS 3.12 and higher, you can get it. IT IS FREE, Download here
