Rogue developer reveals new app sheep Instaview Monday, jump in an increasingly crowded market of apps that allow users to see Instagram photographs on their Mac desktops.
Instaview joins several other recent tenders — including Mobelux $ 5 mill and Benedikt Terhechte apps InstaDesk $ 2 — to display photos from the Instagram iPhone app directly to your computer. (The free app Instagram offers its own social network — and sharing with Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and more — but has no way to easily view Instagram feeds on the iPad or Mac without the help of third-party applications.)
Rogue sheep says users can specify multiple Windows on the desktop — each customizable with its own style framework — for viewing Instagram feeds and even run them as a slideshow. Clicking on a photo gives users the options to view comments, "as" the image, follow the photographer at Instagram or make a comment. Instagram account is required to use the program.
Instaview costs $ 5, and is compatible with Macs running OS X 10.6 or later.
