Gramblr takes Instagram to a whole ‘nother level
Most smartphone users have Instagram, a free service that lets you load your photos to a digital album and share them via social networks. Instagram is currently available for Android and iOS users, but there was no way to upload pictures from your computer without running an add-on or third party plug-in. Now, with Gramblr, there is a way. And it is very simple to use.
Gramblr can upload your pictures in two simple steps. First you need to download the program, enter your Instagram log in information (or sign up for a new Instagram account if you are not already using the service). Afterwards, all you need to do is select an image from your computer, add a caption (if you want), and hit the “upload” button. It really is that simple.
Currently Gramblr supports Windows XP, Vista, and 7. And the site says it is “currently having difficulties with our OS X version. It should be available again soon,” so it looks like Mac users will have to wait to try the new service out. But for Windows users, this is a great way to upload all of those photos you have stored on your hard drive, quickly and effectively.
It also protects your pictures in case of fire or water damage. They will be stored safely, digitally with Instagram. Not to mention, the added bonus of being able to share them via Facebook and Twitter with friends and family. Once they are uploaded to Instagram, you can share them with your Instagram followers as well.
This is especially helpful for after a vacation or business conference, when your camera card is full of photos you cannot wait to upload. Instead of waiting for your phone to upload to Instagram, use Gramblr and cut the upload time in half. Now, all that is left to do is learn all the fun hashtags people use with Instagram.
