I’m a self-confessed Instagram addict.
More photos, filters, shots, and captivating moments – I ended up with this stellar Instagram viewer for iPad dubbed Padgram.
What the heck?
Wuhan Pinssible Netcom sells this functional Instagram viewer for iPad. Aside from browsing your feed, this app allows you to browse photos by category or on a Map view. Subscribe to interesting tags and post comments on your friends’ wall with Emoji symbols too.
This app bags 4.5 stars in 312 ratings on its current version.
How does it work?
Once you launch the app, you will be prompted to log in your Instagram log in information and invoke authorization for access. You can browse in landscape or portrait mode.
Basically, once your Instagram account is connected, you can access the images under “My Feed, My Likes, My Photos, and Photos on a Map (Premium version), Tags and Subscribers.”
Tap the button on the upper-left corner and access your Instagram profile.
The mechanisms of taps and interface are somewhat similar to Pinterest. It’s easier to browse other profiles and images in various categories, and you can view them in full size using the swipe mode. Stay close to your friends or events by subscribing to a tag you’re interested in. You can subscribe to 3 users/tags (free version).
Interestingly, this app has extensive sharing options. Guess how many social networks you can use to share your photos?
Seven – Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Pocket, Evernote, Tumblr, Sina Weibo – it sure is a social media-friendly platform. Promote yourself and get more followers and likes using the Promote option. This feature makes a beautiful collage of pictures mostly liked by your followers/users.
How’s the app?
There’s only one drawback I found in this app. It doesn’t support image upload. The developers were honest on their description page on App Store. Mainly, this app is for browsing, liking, and commenting on Instagram profiles using the iPad.
Personally, I prefer using this app when I’m browsing my friends’ photos instead of the stock Instagram API. The photos are optimized in retina display, and it loads faster.
I’m giving Padgram 4.5 stars.
Get this app via direct link from App Store for free (in-app purchases to get rid of ads and enjoy other features).
