New Ways to Have Fun With Instagram

Like most iPhone shutterbugs, we’re a little obsessed with social networking photo app Instagram. Back in February, Instagram released their own API which allowed developers to take all those photos and expand the app beyond the iPhone. Photojojo came up with a list of 10 new things you can do with all of your Instagram pictures. Check out how to do a whole lot more with Instagram, after the jump.

With web apps like Inkstagram, Instagreat, and Instagrid, you can view and manage your stream online, so you can enjoy seeing those Instagram photos nicely spread out on your computer screen in a grid or photo gallery. Inkstagram allows you to follow new users and both Inkstagram and Instagreat let you “like” photos. Instagrid transforms your stream into a web gallery that you can share and send to friends. For iPad owners, Instagallery lets you view your photostream and organize your photos into sets and even slideshows.

There are a number of ways to create your own prints, stickers, books, posters and more from your Instagram photos. Artflakes and Instagoodies make square stickers and Instaprint and Inkagram play with the idea of printing your photos. Instaprint is an actual printer that uses its location or specific hashtags to print Instagram photos right after they’re shot, making it great for events and parties. Instamaker lets you turn your photos into t-shirts, mugs and more while Printstagr.am takes your stream and turns it into a 20” x 40” poster. You can also create adorable 2” x 2” tiles with TeenyTile.

For those who enjoy browsing through other users’ photos, Instabam and Cartagr.am show you Instagram photos based on location. Cartagr.am will actually show you photos on an interactive world map. Snapfinch is a nifty way to search for Instagrams based on tags and keywords, while Gramjunction lets you look through a gallery of Instagrams and links those photos directly to the user’s flickr account so you can check out some of their images.

There are some other ways to have fun with Instagram. For you cat-lovers out there, Nekostagram and InstaKitty are streams dedicated entirely to kitties. For dog lovers, be sure to make your way over to Inustagram and InstaPuppy (dog-only photostreams). Pic a Fight is a straightforward Instagram “versus” site that presents visitors with 2 photos to choose from—simply pick your favorite or skip, then keep moving onto the next pair. Finally, if meeting other real-life Instagrammers in person sounds like your idea of fun, you can meet them through Instameet (a monthly meet-up setup through meetup.com).
