Instagram Now Has A Web App!Cecily Kellogg
FINALLY. After spending a few months enjoying having a personal Instagram landing page that only showed my photos, today Instagram announced in a blog post that they are currently offering full feed to the home page now.
Your Instagram Feed on the web functions much like it does on your mobile phone. You can browse through the latest photos of people whom you follow with updates as people post new photos. Like photos by double clicking on them or pressing the like button. Or, engage in a conversation around a photo with inline commenting. Browse through pages of the most recent images to keep up on what’s happening with the people you follow in realtime. And shrink your browser down to a single column for your feed to look more like your mobile feed. Simply put, we’ve brought a simple, powerful, and beautiful Instagram browsing experience to the web.
While I’ve been doing this for ages using subapps like Webstagram, it’s nice to be able to look at my Instagram feed, comment, and like photos from my desktop using Instagram itself. Also, Instagram actually protects your images and doesn’t allow them to be downloaded through right clicking, and that’s a nice feature.
Of course, Instagram is still suffering with the huge loss of followers caused by confusion about their terms of service, but it appears that Facebook and Instagram and moving forward with the app.
What about you? Do you like the new web site? Does it improve your Instagram experience?
