There are more than a few Instagram clients for Windows 8, but they usually have too many features and are difficult to use. Instapic from Applyf is different because it offers many of the functions you’ve come to love on Instagram with added features that enhance its functionality, like easy uploading of images to your account.
Aside from making photo uploads to your Instagram account simple, you can browse videos and photos of those you follow and even download from Instagram to your tablet or PC. Once you’ve got the app you have to log in using your Instagram username and password.
The interface shows the Popular section and your Timeline, and the buttons give you access to Upload, Activity and Search. To see more images you’ve shared and from those you follow, swipe horizontally. One of the nice things about the app is that the images are presented in large thumbnails, and there’s a notification when someone follows you or when one of your followers has a new activity.
Instapic allows you to like photos and post comments, and you can share the images via email Twitter or Facebook or just save them on your PC. Images can be tagged as well, and you can edit your profile in the app bar. Because the interface is clean and intuitive you can view your posts quickly as well as those of your followers, likes and those you follow. To upload photos you just tap the camera button on the main screen. Choose to get an existing photo or take a new one, and it’ll be posted.
