Lists and Image Curation Comes To Instagram with InstaFeed



Robin Good's insight:



Instafeed is a iOS app which allows you to create custom lists of Instagram users and to re-post easily (with auto-credit) great images from other Instagram users to your own account.


Instafeed offers a growing set of pre-packaged feeds, on popular topics like fashion, pets and food, to which you can add your own curated set of custom feeds in which you decide who are your specific Instagram sources.


I would have loved to see a feed creation option based on hashtags rather than just on Instagram people, as it is very rare to find Instagram authors that post sistematically on a specific topic / theme / style.


Usability-wise I wasted a lot of time trying to understand how to watch any existing feed. Beyond that there are only a couple of extra commands only. But for me the need to double tap on the home page feed to view it was a frustrating barrier. I'd click each time only to be brought into seeing the list of sources for that channel. Other than this InstaFeed is as easy as sneezing.


The option to repost (with credit) Instagram pics you find in InstaFeed channels directly to your Instagram account is invaluable as it opens for the first time the opportunity for "curating" other people images on Instagram.


Given the huge quantity of visual material being created daily on Instagram, it is only going to be a matter of time before you will start seeing many other new services attempt to offer tools to more easily find, pick, group and republish relevant Instagram (or for that matter Flickr, Picasa, etc.) images to a theme or topic channel.


Free to use.

 You can repost any snaps you like directly to Instagram, which is a nice touch, and you can post comments too.
