Instagram photo app for iPhone is addicting and fun


bicycle wheelInstagram app for iPhone is addicting and fun

I can't believe it's been less than a month since I discovered Instagram for the iPhone, by way of  This is one cool app and social network.  Sort of like Twitter, but you post pictures from your iphone instead of tweets.  Follow and be followed.

Instagram is all about photos, and encourages using pictures in the moment, snapping shots of day to day life, and then running them through a selection of filters for varied results.  Some of the pictures are truly amazing and very creative.

It's a world-wide network of mostly amateur photographers sharing their sunsets and skies, coffee and donuts, urban landscapes and scenery, all with unique perspectives.  Take a nice picture and you can instantly share it with your network of followers and post it to other social network sites like Twitter, Facebook and Flckr. Comment on people's pics, or just LIKE them.  Photo sharing made simple and fun.

The POPULAR page highlights those that are most popular, but I haven't quite figured out how that works, nor have I made the cut yet!  haha.  You never know what you will see, but I can guaranty that you will be blown away by some beautiful and inspiring images.

What's all this fun going to cost you?  Nothing - it's free.  Just go to the App Store and download Instagram.  You're welcome to follow me.. I'm the mauihunter.

Instagram is one of those apps that make me want an iPad - (Santa, are you listening?)

Georgina---I don't suppose that when a picture is posted on Instagram, that it is available for copyright free use?  That would really make it worthwhile!
