Instagram is one of my favorite phone camera apps, second only to Hipstamatic. Instagram allows you to take your photo or use an existing photo and then apply one of its fifteen filters to your photo to achieve the affect that you want. The photo filters can create incredible effect. Itâ€™s just a matter of playing with the app and learning what looks best to you.
The Instagram app allows you to share your photos via social media, almost immediately after taking the photo and choosing your filter effect. You are asked to save the photo and then you are prompted to identify the photo as What (a caption) and Where (location), which defaults to your current location, unless you specify otherwise or decline.
The Instagram app has a much greater social aspect to it than Hipstamatic. It allows you to share your photos via Twitter, Facebook, email, Flickr, Tumblr, Foursquare or Posterous. This has no bearing on the quality of the photos.
The Instagram app also allows you to find and invite friends to follow you on Instagram. If you are a private person or want to keep photos of your children private, you can set your security settings to private. The Instagram app is currently only available for the iPhone.
Instagram is an awesome phone camera app and if you have not already tried it out, I would highly recommend doing it so.
