Instagram, recently acquired by Facebook, is hotter than ever; however, despite its popularity, some may find that the viewing platform of the accelerated app is perhaps a little restrictive to those looking for the big picture. This is where Pinstagram, the new viewer-friendly hybrid of Instagram and Pinterest, comes in handy.
Developed originally as a joke, Pinstagram is the brainchild of Pek Pongpaet and Brandon Leonardo. The add-on works by converting your photo stream into the familiar mosaic-style Pinterest is known and loved for, and provides a more comprehensive look at what your snap-happy peers are uploading.
Pinstagram is effective in providing Instagrammers with a more user-friendly desktop interface, and like similar hybrids, will attract those who are looking for a more streamlined look to their respective social media platforms. By making an already-adored app a more efficient makeover, Pinstagram will likely grab the attention of many Instagram and Pinterest lovers.
