Best New Mashups: Follow Photos with Instagram Apps

Adam DuVander, March 7th, 2011

InstagramNow that the Instagram API is available with last month’s public beta launch, we’ve started to see some fun apps built on top of it. Since Instagram’s only official product is an iPhone application, that means we’re seeing web clients, badge widgets and even Hot-or-Not style games. The best part is that some even cross over to multiple mobile photo APIs, increasing their reach and usefulness.

  • Pic A Fight!: Uses the Instagram API to put photos head to head to determine the best pics. Use all public photos, or drill down by user and determine a friend's best photo. APIs: Instagram. More at our Pic A Fight! profile.
