Still liking Instagram for iPhone photography? Portland’s Gramfeed will make you fall in love all over again
While Portland lost its unique tie to the iPhone photo app Instagram when they opened a San Francisco office, there is no love lost on the app around here. People around these parts continue to snap, filter, and share photos with Intagram to the tune of thousands of local photos are uploaded daily. There’s even a Portland Instagram Group.
But you know what there’s not? Decent Web access to Instagram photos. The experience has been pretty much constrained to one-off pics or the stream on your iPhone. Until now. Meet Gramfeed.
Much in the same way that FoursquareX freed Foursquare from the mobile device, Gramfeed gives you the ability to view, like, and share your Instagram stream from within your Web browser. And it was all built by Portland’s own Rakshith Krishnappa.
Rakshith Krishnappa says that he hacked together Gramfeed over the weekend that is “designed to be a Twitter-like Web client for Instagram.”
Gramfeed not only makes it easy to browse your Instagram feed on the Web, giving you the ability to see much larger version of photos, but it also makes it easy to share your and friend’s photos on Twitter and Facebook.
Simple. Straightforward. Great use of the Instagram API. And exactly what the Instagram users wanted.
To try it yourself, visit Gramfeed.
