Loads of our entries to our photo competition are using the free iPhone App Instagram. See this great one above from Linda Choi Xu! So we thought it would be great to give you some ideas on what to do with these great entries.  Here is some great new ways to use Instagram.


It’s one of the web-based ways to access popular Instagram photos. Insta-Great allows the user to flick through current hot images, ‘like’ them and see who else has. It also shows where the picture was taken and the kind of filter the Instagrammer used.


An online gallery for Instagram pictures. With Instagrid, your beautiful Instagram takes can be shared even to your family and friends who are non-iPhone users. You can also find interesting photos from fellow Instagrammers, popular or otherwise, from the weekly digest published by Instagrid.


Instagallery allows interaction with other Instagrammers, complete with photo comments and you can also use it to create a slideshow of your pictures which can be made into a screensaver for your iPad when not in use.


Not sure of the availability but we wont one now! Instaprint is a location-based photo booth for Instagram. By adding a specific hashtag to the shared Instagram picture, it will be available for print using the Instaprint box. Great for events among Instagrammers! After all, what can be more fun than having photo souvenirs taken and printed on the spot?


Carousel gives the opportunity for users to access Instagram on a Mac computer.  In addition, this program allows Mac owners to choose from various themes for Instagram photo viewing.


Of course, behind every Instagram profile is a real person – and you have the chance to meet them in the flesh! With the help of Meetups, an online platform that makes it possible to coordinate events online between like minds.  Now you can get to see your favorite Instagrammer and share ideas with them personally.  In fact, just recently, a Worldwide Instameet was organized.


Statigram works like a social networking platform of Instagram users.  Through Statigram, commenting on other users’ as well updating one of your own becomes possible. Other things like fun metrics and private messaging not available on Intagram are also included.

So get snapping, and don’t forget to read the judging criteria and use the #hashtag #shareasign on in your Twitter feed.
