Easy as one, two, three, right?

One of the emerging photo sharing apps today is Instagram.

You can upload as many pictures and videos as you want. It is a complete package app because you can take pictures/videos through this, edit and share them and let others like or comment on them. You do not have to worry if you also want to share those photos and videos on Facebook or Twitter and other social networking sites because you can easily link your profiles to your Instagram account. In that way, you are able to hit two (or more) birds with one stone. Very convenient and user-friendly!
