The iPhone has a lot of super cool apps, that’s for sure. In fact, it’s really weird (and pointless!) for anyone using an iPhone as their means of communication to NOT have any apps! And while we all know and love Angry Birds, Words with Friends, and all those other fun apps, there’s one awesome app that has been crowned the best of 2011.
Just a few days ago, Apple has named Instagram as its “definitive” app of the year! Apple even claims that Instagram, a FREE app that allows you to take pictures on your iPhone, transform them into works of art, and share them with your friends on social media, makes it “nearly impossible to take a bad shot!”
Let me tell you, we totally believe that Instagram is THAT GOOD! In fact, the app currently has eleven, count ‘em, ELEVEN different custom filters that you can use to give your photos your own personal touch.
Instagram was introduced in Apple’s App Store on October 6, 2010, and by June 2011, the 8-month-old app had 5 million users. Currently, the 14-month-old app boasts a hearty 14 million+ users who post about 400 million photos!
For those of you who live in the dark ages and don’t have an iPhone yet (you know who you are!), you might be currently asking yourself, “So what? What’s the big deal?” Maybe those of you who DO have an iPhone are asking, “Why is this app the best? Angry Birds is the best!”
Think about it. People these days are glued to their phones. In fact, I bet if you take a look around you, you’ll see people texting on their phone, taking pictures with it, or POSSIBLY talking with someone on the phone (I know – it seems so archaic anymore, doesn’t it?). The cell phone, especially the iPhone, is ubiquitous and goes with us wherever we go! And well, is there another app out there that can let you take pictures of whatever you want, doll them all up, and INSTANTLY share your photos with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr? Nope!
If you’re still not inspired by this app, why not check out Instagram’s top 15 users? Trust us, if you check these users’ photos out, you’re going to want to download this app, and you may never want to use a bulky camera ever again
And guess what? You’ll soon be able to enjoy using Instagram on your own iPhone, which will soon be protected by a totally BODACIOUS iPhone case! We at Bodacious Cases are gearing up for our national launch of our super awesome cases in mid-January, and we couldn’t be more excited!
