Editors' Review

+

Instagram for iOS enables you to shoot, transform, and share your photos and videos. Its extensive, impressive collection of built-in editing tools includes 26 photo and 15 video filters.

Pros

Great filters: Instagram's claim to fame is its 26 photo and 15 video filters, which lighten, brighten, soften, darken, and age your media. You can also transform your photos and videos from color to black and white. If certain filters don't appeal to you, click Manage and uncheck to hide them.

Extensive editing tools: If you'd prefer to edit media yourself, you can easily adjust, sharpen, and brighten your photos, as well as add highlights, shadows, and more. Tap the Lux button, which looks like a half-filled sun, to correct photos that are underexposed or lack contrast.

Tagging people: Whereas Facebook's mobile app only allows you to tag existing friends in photos, Instagram lets you tag anyone. Those tagged can easily untag themselves, if they choose.

Social: Instagram has an active social community to follow and interact with. Share your media with over 300 million users, or scroll down your photo feed to like and comment on others' media. To get your photos and videos seen by the largest number of people, add hashtags to your posts.

Plays well with other social media: You can share your Instagram posts to Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr with just a few clicks. You can also directly share others' posts to Facebook or Twitter or copy a Share URL link and post to other social sites.

Direct messaging: Unlike Twitter, which only enables direct messaging between users who follow each other, Instagram enables you to directly message other users, whether or not you both follow each other. Of course, you may block any users who bother you.

Trending tags and places: Search photos by inputting a search term and then tapping Top (for top accounts, locations, and tags), People (top accounts), Tags (top tags), or Places (top locations). Explore lets you see suggested photos based on the people you follow. You can also search photos by trending tags and places.

Multiple views: See your photos in grid view, scrolling view, or map view. You may also limit your selection to just photos of you.

Great privacy features: You can disable your location, so you're not sharing where you took your photos and videos. Under Options, toggle to Private Account to keep your photos private or visible only to approved followers.

Layout: If you want to turn your individual photos into a cool collage, seamlessly switch to Instagram's companion collaging app, Layout, directly from Instagram. You do have to install Layout first.

Excellent navigation: It's so easy to get around Instagram, even on the go. All the buttons are self-explanatory and accessible, so it's easy to go from taking a photo to sharing it.

Cons

In-app camera: The in-app camera operates slowly, and you can take only one shot before being taken to the editing page. If you're unhappy with your photo, you have to hit the back button to take another picture. With the native Camera app, you can take multiple photos in quick succession. You also have more options as far as the shape of the photo, from default to Square to Pano. That's why it's often preferable to take the photo with your Camera first and then share to Instagram.

Bottom Line

If you're a photo enthusiast who wants to share your images with 300 million Instagrammers, or if you want to follow others' photo feeds, then Instagram for iOS is an essential download.

"Fun, free, addicting app"

November 28, 2011  |  By scarletogara1

 |  Version: Instagram 2.0.4

Pros

Fun and simple to use photo-sharing app, addicting in-feed feature, makes your photos look great.

Cons

Could use some more filter options

Summary

At first, I couldn't really see what the big deal was with this app. However, once I started to use it, I could completely see its appeal. It's a great way to put a little pizzazz in your photos and share them with your friends. It's a fun little app that brings out your creative side, even if you aren't the world's greatest photographer. I love that it also gives your photos that warm, nostalgic feeling. I wish it did have some more filter options, though.
