Next Level Instagram

Instagram is something that has really become a part of my everyday life. Since it was intended first for the phone only, a small piece of me doesn’t want to use it on my computer at all. But with that being said there are times when you might want to grab a photo via the web to save it and other tasks that are just easier (and only possible) if you have a web browser.

Below are some sites/programs I use for getting those things done.

Gramfeed: View photos, search tags, view by location and more. A nice big clean interface. (thanks Jessica)

Statigram: View photos, save photos, follow new people, see statistics on your phones, and other in depth info, more than you could ever image.

Followgram.me: Easy link to share on social services to easily allow people to follow you.

Carousel: (Mac App) : View Instagram photos in this very iOS view like it’s on your phone on your Mac.

Instaport: Download all of your Instagram photos or specify only certain ones so you can keep a backup on your computer or upload them all to an album on Facebook, etc.

Virb: Build your own photo website by connecting Instagram to Virb. Learn more over at the Virb blog and signup here using promo code “rubinrecpromo” for 50% off your first 2 months and a 10 day free trial. (disclaimer: I work at Virb and it’s the best ever.)

Also read these Instagram basics. A lot of people don’t realize they can delete the image title/first comment on their photo to fix a typo and re-do it, block unwanted users, etc.
