New iPhone apps to Prevent Insta-emo
Champagne bottles are still popping at Instagram HQ while Twitter remains outraged by the acquisition. Now what? Though reports say that Facebook has assured Insta-users that features will remain the same, many want out. Here are some iPhone apps that may keep you from being Insta-emo for the time being:
Path is for the mult-tasker...or well, the multi-sharer. Share your thoughts, who you're with, where you are, what you're listening to, photos, videos, even what time you hit the sack. The app also pushes to public networks like Facebook and Twitter. It's beautifully designed and uploading a cover photo adds a great personal touch to your profile.
If Path and Google+ had baby, it'd be Everyme! Everyme looks and functions similarly to Path with minor exclusions like sharing music and bedtime. However, Everyme lets you create private or public circles. Just as Google+, you decide who you want to share your daily activiites with. One thing users may not approve of is the disability to share to public networks.
Okay, so if Google+ had an affair with Instagram and birthed a lovechild, it would be Pinweel. Pinweel is a photo sharing app with filters (Ooooh-ahhh). Users can organize their photos into albums and share albums with specific people or groups. I'm seeing a trend in new iPhone apps in terms of privacy, and I like it! Users can push to Facebook and Twitter and hey Team Android, a version for you will launch later this year!
RIP Instagram? Or are some of its hot and bothered users only bluffing? We'll see if this really is the end and if some of the new networking apps can steal its shine.
