It doesn’t take much effort to fall in love with Instagram. If you’re an iPhone user there’s probably not an easier way to upload and share photos online.
What about Instagram on your Mac?
For now, the official Instagram app is iPhone only. Fear not– Carousel is the Mac way to experience Instagram on your favorite personal computer. Almost.
A couple of bucks gets you the Carousel app which lets you view your Instagram feed and profile photos, including your own uploads, using a deliciously Instagram-like user interface.
What Carousel does is bring Instagram to you. Unfortunately, you get all the goodies except the most important. Sending photos to Instagram.
Other than the inability to share photos from your Mac to Instagram, Carousel gives you the rest of the leftover good stuff.
You can search, pin tags, see all photos you’ve marked as liked, open multiple windows, click to single photo view, even go full screen.
You can like and comment on photos, open photos in your browser, copy a photo’s URL, even check on who’s following you and check on those you follow.
Carousel has four attractive Instagram-like themes, and works with Growl notifications.
The only negative is that you can’t upload photos to Instagram.
