Speaking of Instagram, Tuhin Kumar has a nice piece about its appeal:
For any app, the first and most important question to ask is
“what problem does it solve”. The how comes later. Instagram
solves the problem of sharing our moments effortlessly with the
world and in a way that makes us look creative.
In short, what Twitter is to text, Instagram is to photography. I love it. And it’s rather amazing that it’s grown so fast with nothing other than an iOS client. Not only are there no clients for any other devices (yet), but you can’t even use it via the web.
