Instagram

The Good Instagram is an excellent way to turn mundane images and video into cool-looking projects you can share with friends.

The Bad Map features default to showing all your geotagged shots, which could be dangerous under some circumstances. There's no option to separate videos and photos in your feed.

The Bottom Line With addition of 15-second video clips, Instagram is tough to beat for photo and video sharing with an enormous and lively community.

Review

Video features keep Instagram on top

Editors' note: This review was updated March, 2014, to cover new features added.

Instagram is a popular photo- and video-sharing app that requires only a couple of touches to produce retro-looking projects and then share them with friends and other Instagram members. With recent updates, the app adds video, letting you add filters and post to your feed much like you do with photos. It also got a new way to adjust brightness and contrast in the most recent update with a new Lux slider. But what's really special about the Instagram phenomenon is how users have used the app to create a story about their everyday lives through stylized photos and videos.

Getting started
You start by signing up with Instagram with an e-mail address, username, and password. From there you can configure Instagram to autopost to Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, Foursquare, and Posterous, or just choose to share images from within the app or via e-mail. You can also turn any of these options on or off if you don't want to share your shots with everyone.
