Even in the light of Facebook’s recent acquisition of the much-loved photo sharing service Instagram, third-party developers are still working on apps using the existing API. Yesterday, for instance, Eric Hoffman Design released a beautiful Instagram browsing app for the iPad called Iris. While it’s a shame you can’t publish any photos with the app, there’s no reason not to buy it if you like to browse photos by your friends.
At $1.99, Iris allows you to tap a photo to like or unlike it, share photos on Twitter by tapping it when it’s enlarged, comment on your friends’ photos, find new people to follow, browse the well-liked photos of Instagram, see the location on a map where the photo was taken, and oh so much more. The user interface alone is the most beautiful way to browse Instagram on any device, not just the iPad. So go give Iris a try today!
