Instagram: Well Worth the Hassle Review
You've no doubt heard of it – and you have definitely seen it in the past. The Instagram app is one of the most popular and powerful on the web. However, when it comes to photo editing and manipulation apps, few are as powerful or as prominent as Instagram for Android. The addictive nature of the software, as well as its simplicity in usage, has seen it explode. Now, it's the weapon of choice from over-enthusiastic students through to professional artists the world around.
But is Instagram really the app that people make it out to be? Does this really help the power and strength that it is supposed to?
Instagram is hailed as a major marketing tool and, for many people, this is just what it is. Not only does this offer an effective and simple solution to make sure images look better but it's an active social media venue that allows you to share this information out on the market with people who are bound to be interested.
So, with that in mind, just how good is the Instagram app itself?
For those who intend on using Instagram online for marketing purposes, you will find it functional. It's also the same for those who just want to showcase their beauty, their artistic talent or just their eye for something funny/cool. This app has become more powerful than it ever has been, though, and the actual layout and functionality of the app has only gotten stronger. With 80m photos uploaded to this app every single day, it's no wonder that this has exploded in popularity. The functionality is simple – upload photos, edit them using the filters and watch people arrive and spend time talking about what you are offering. For this reason, then, the Instagram app is functional – it does just as it claims.
The design of the app is also good. As you might expect from something built around literally letting you edit photos, it's got an artistic look and feel to the app. Not only will you find it much easier to use the app and make the most of the design you can get access to, the app makes it simple for you to upload the kind of photos you want using the various filters. The app is slick and it's easy to enjoy Instagram. It's easy to use and effective in the layout but it also manages to carry off a certain style and charm that other apps just lack. For this reason, Instagram probably has the easiest design to use in this class of app.
Usage always matters and we saw that Instagram is certainly usable. It made sense for everyone from young artists to posers who love their own look and style. It's an app that is useful for everyone and anyone with an eye or passion for art. However, it's even a powerful tool for getting good ideas and suggestions. Just look around and you can notice just how easy it is to find good ideas, fresh inspiration and genuinely amazing photos to empower you. Instagram works as both a place to market yourself and to find amazing images from across the world that can really help you understand the power of imagery and art.
