Since it was launched in October of 2010, Instagram has become a household name. Even though the app was originally created for only iOS devices, it was still able to achieve a wide reach. Of course, when the company decided to expand and enter the Android market, the users of Instagram exploded.
Naturally, there are the haters. There will always be haters. They can say all sorts of negative things about Instagram, its filters, its users, and so on, but no one can really deny that the app is fun, right?
Obviously, I am an Instagram user, albeit not a very regular one. I have it installed on both the iPhone and the iPad, but I just seem to suck at timing, so often, I miss out on good photo opportunities.
In any case, if you are an Instagrammer, you would love this discovery: Insta-WP.
Insta-WP is a web-based service which allows you to harness the potential of Instagram and use it for a different application.
I don’t know about you, but ever since I had my first computer (it was an old PC put together), the wallpaper has always been one of the things I like playing around with. And I know for sure that I am not the only one. I am not the kind who changes wallpapers every day, but it is always fun to have something new that I like looking at.
If you’re into Instagram, and you absolutely love your photos, Insta-WP can make this happen for you in terms of creating your own wallpapers. You see where this is going?
You only have to go to the site, Insta-WP, and enter your Instagram ID. What the web service does is pull photos from your account and create custom wallpapers using those photos.
Naturally, you are given a certain degree of freedom in creating wallpapers. Insta-WP will ask you to input certain parameters such as the screen size (yes, you can create wallpapers for the PC, laptop, iPhone, iPad, etc.), the layout, and spacing. You are also given the option to use photos from other users, in case you are not satisfied with the collection that you have amassed.
