That’s my iPhone. The iPhone 4S shoots great photos and videos with quality so good it’s easy to fill up Flickr (the iPhone 4 is Flickr’s most popular photo taking device). Outside of the camera app, my favorite app is Instagram. It’s like Facebook for photos.
InstaDesk is the Mac app to manage Instagram.
View Photos But Don’t Touch
Instagram is more than interesting. It’s a hot online photo sharing service, perfect for family and friends and mobile devices.
For whatever reason, Instagram only allows photo uploads from mobile devices.
InstaDesk is the Mac app that lets you browse Instagram’s photos, view the newest uploads, and even find others to follow.
Instead of using Instagram on your iPhone, use InstaDesk on your Mac. It’s a click away in the Mac Menubar. View images full size, post comments, and like other photos from within InstaDesk.
Look, mom. It’s a Mac app for Instagram users.
It’s the Mac app you know and love even if you’ve never used it before. InstaDesk follows the standard Mac interface.
Basic information in the left sidebar column. Instagram, Albums, Favorites and Friends.
Here’s my list of the 11 coolest functions in InstaDesk.
Slideshow – grab any set of images; photo albums, tagged photos, popular photos and build an instant slideshow.
View Modes – View everything as a feed, a list of icons in various sizes, or in detail mode.
Fasttrack Liking – Instagram has millions of photos to like, so liking is easy. Just hover over a photo.
Favorite Friends – You decide who’s your friend and see their updates with a click.
User Profiles – Friends profiles, photos, and followers (and followed) are a click away.
News & Notifications – As your photos gain new followers, comments, or likes, you get notified. And, it works with Growl to clutter your screen with notices as you become more popular.
Photo Albums – Create your own albums via drag and drop, right from within InstaDesk on your Mac. Try that on your iPhone.
Download & Share – Duh. Download what you like, or share with others, or both. Same price.
Browse & Search Tags – I hate tags because I get behind on my tagging and it takes forever to catch up. Still, InstaDesk makes it easy to create tags, search tags, save via tags.
Hover Details – When viewing photos in icon view, just hover your Mac pointer over the photo and get details.
Sync – It’s only one way, from Instagram to your Mac, but it’s a handy way to easily synchronize photos on your Instagram account back to your Mac.
InstaDesk is the Mac easy way to manage Instagram from the big screen of your Mac, rather than the iPhone app. If you use Instagram, it’s a must have app.
