Instagram is a service with an ever-evolving following (yes, Justin Bieber included), and there’s a wonderful ecosystem of apps surrounding the iPhone photo-sharing service. With these tools, you can do everything from see nearby Instagram users to send a postcard—a real postcard, sent through the mail—to your friends.
Instagram already has a user base of over 7 million and the amount of third party apps that have cropped up around the service is impressive. Instagram continues to prove that it is the smartphone photography app to beat.
Here are 3 of the top Instagram app picks from The Next Web:
“Postagram is an iPhone, Android and web-based app which allows you to send your Instagram photos as postcards. Select any of your Instagram photos, add a personalized message, and ship it to the address of your choice.”
“Inkstagram gives you the missing web interface that Instagram so desperately needs.You can keep up with photos your friends post, comment on them, and find new people to follow.”
“Stickygram turns your Instagram photos into fridge magnets. Sign in with Instagram, and you can create a set of 9 little magnets. Unfortunately if you want to use Stickygram, you will have to wait for an invite code since they’ve been inundated with requests.”
