Wonderful software to use Instagram on your computer
Instagram is no doubt one of the most popular mobile applications in the world today. Unfortunately, it is limited by the fact that its desktop counterpart cannot upload images directly onto Instagram. In fact, it is almost impossible to use Instagram on your desktop devices. Grids for Instagram is a software that provides a solution to that problem. It was developed by ThinkTime Creations originally for Mac, but it has now been ported to Windows. Grids for Instagram will surely make your Instagram experience a lot better.
Instagram for Desktop
As mentioned above, Grids for Instagram allows users to experience Instagram on their desktop computers. The software has most of the functions of Instagram but ported into a desktop interface. The way it was ported is also seamless, efficient, and even beautiful.
Installing Grids for Instagram is easy and quick. It doesn’t take a long time and there are no complicated processes involved. Once installed, all you need to do is input your Instagram account credentials and you can start using it right away. Upon logging in, you’ll be taken directly to your feed. A great thing about the software is that you can add several accounts to the software so that many can people use the software.
As its name suggests, Grids for Instagram’s interface looks like a grid of pictures. The grid is borderless making it look like a huge wall of lovely photos. Once you hover over those pictures, you’ll be able to see the stats of the picture such as the likes, comments, and description. While this is the software’s main appeal, it’s understandable that not everyone will be a fan of this layout. Thankfully, Grids for Instagram does offer options to change this look. Users can choose a layout where the stats and comments are always displayed or if the stats are on the side or bottom of the picture. Whatever the user chooses, the interface still looks beautiful and clean.
Minimalistic but Functional
Obviously, the design of this software is simple and minimalistic because the focus should be on the photographs. It does succeed in that minimalist and clean design, but it doesn’t sacrifice the quality and user experience for it. The photos are still front and center in the interface, but most of Instagram’s functions are in the software. You can still view your feed, bookmarks, and more. Your profile, likes, and search function can be found at the top of the window for easy access. One thing this software is missing is the ability to edit Instagram filters. However, considering you’re uploading from a PC, it won’t be difficult to use a separate photo-editing software to do those filters instead.
Above and Beyond in Experience
All in all, Grids for Instagram is a great port of a great app. Users who’ve always wanted to use Instagram on their computers now have this software. What’s great about Grids for Instagram is that it doesn’t just do the bare minimum. It goes above and beyond and truly gives users the best Instagram experience for desktop possible.
