If you own an iPhone, it’s highly likely you’ve dabbled with Instagram, the photo app that allows you to quickly snap a shot, apply a filter, and share it with friends. They’ve captured the essence of what people want to do with their phone photos.
What’s more, Intagram offers an API for folks to build cool stuff with their data. No really. One example was Gramfeed from Portland’s Rakshith Krishnappa. Well guess what? He didn’t stop there. Meet Instalook.
[HTML2]Instalook uses your current location and your Instagram account to show you photos taken in your immediate vicinity. And who took them.
The result? An awesome mishmash of content to explore. You can jump around by person, by map, or by photo. It’s a whole new way of looking at your Instagram feed.
Not only is it a brilliant time suck, it’s also a really interesting way to view the world around you. Through the eyes and angles and filters of other Instagram photographers.
If you like flipping through Instagram, you’re going to love this way of digging into even more awesome photos.
The Instalook app is currently available in the app store at a cost of $0.99. What’s that? Want a promo code? Well I’ve got some more good news. There are 20 free promo codes for Portlanders. First come, first served. Just drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org.
