Today we meet Thomas a.k.a as @Thomas_K from Munich, Germany. . His name is Thomas… But all the people know him as @Thomas_k His real name is Thomas Kakareko and he is just 25 years old. He was born in Berlin and spent almost my whole life there. Needless to say that he absolutely loves his city! For him, there‘s some kind of a special atmosphere surrounding it. “There are places here i‘ve been to like 1.000 times and i‘m still able to discover something new and interesting about them”. Says Thomas. it´s fun because maybe because his inspires us a 40 something man. He is a youg guy in fact and keep the simplicity he transfers to his beautiful black and white pictures that fly all over the world, through Instagram. There‘s also something special about the people in Berlin, according to him and it´s that they exude so much confidence and positive energy, that is just a pleasure to him to watch them for a street photographer. .. He has been studying Political Science and Public Law for a couple of years now and affter a one year break he will resume studying by October this year.

Photorank.me, Discovering your real photographer value?

Photorank.me, Discovering your real photographer value?

Photorank.me, Discovering your real photographer value? . In yesterday Web App review we discovered the passion for Instagram by the team of developers of Followgram, today – and going forward on analyzing the crazy fever of  Instagram´s based web apis launchings – we have a look to another awesome and original project. Photorank.me. . How many times did you think the “Pops” were not very “fair” or were lil bit surexposed to other criteria than the real value of the photographer´s pics? . Here is a “new way” to evaluate your pics through new parameters. It´s probably not the definitive version but we do appreciate people spending time for our Instagramers´s Life needs! We interviewed today developers to discover who were behind this incredible app and their aims. . How did you start with this interesting project? . We started working on Olapic.com on November 2010 and we quickly realized that we should find a good way to organize/rank photos. So we started developing several algorithms and we found that ranking the photographer based on the influence of their photos was the best way to surface the best content. Two weeks ago, we showed the algorithm to a couple of friends that were a lot into photography (and also instagram fans) and they wanted to know how we were ranking them. So, we decided that this could be a nice stand-alone site and that’s how we got started. . .Were you IG addicts before launching your project? . Yes, half of the team is very active in IG here you have their usernames as they have all iphones: @aseba,...

Followgram, the Instagram follow botton for your blog

Followgram, Instagram follow botton for your blog . At Instagramers.com, we discovered recently the “Followgram Button”. An useful tool you can see in this site home page and we contacted with the developers. One of them is Fabio Lalli. Fabio is italian. He has been working in the IT field for 10 years now. He told himself been a geek, a father and a Apple & Instagram addict. What brings us to talk about him is not about his contribution in Instagram as itself but because of his last project called Followgram. . . We wanted to know more about this guy who People around him say that he is a compulsive start-upper and serial entrepreneur. . “Reality is that I have fun with lots of different ideas which I try to develop as fast as I can…and then take a rest assured that I have lots and lots of ideas!” first says Fabio. (see pic beside) . Just to name a few, He has recently developed with his team Yeplike, Baby 2.0, Backupr.me and many other commissioned projects. . When asking him about the origins of the project, he says “Refering to Instagram Network, Followgram was born some nights ago during a Skype call between me and Lorenzo Sfienti . We decided to make an Instagram “follow button” for our blogs and then came to our minds, the idea of a vanity URL and of the different features around Instagram activity, we are currently releasing”. (beside Lorenzo pic) . . Followgram’s first release has been coded in just 6 hours! That´s really amazing… And then a designer Annalisa...

Insta.Platform: a new tool for developers who love Instagram

Insta.Platform: a new tool for developers who love Instagram. . The company Made by Many has just released Insta.Platform, a tool that makes it a lot easier for developers to make real-time, Instagram-fed web apps. It´s important to know. The cool people at Made by Many have been huge fans of Instagram since its earliest days. And I really, invite you to meet them in their very original webpage. . It seems that in last February they got the idea to make a “South by Southwest” Instagram homepage takeover around pics Instagramed in this area and since then there have been posting new and funny projects and articles around Instagram like: . What Instagram might sound like? Check the website here. . Why we love Instagram? Check the post here.   And also a little app called the Holler Gram that works with Instagram. . One thing Made by Many noticed is the surprising shortage of real-time Instagram apps that have emerged since the API was announced in last February. . Where came from the idea of Insta.Platform? . Creative technologist Andrew Senter did a little research into why more real-time apps weren’t coming out of the developer community. And which was verdict? . “The available open source code just abstracted enough to encourage technological creativity: there are too many new technologies involved, and the learning curve is just that little bit too steep.” . So to make it easier for developers to make real-time apps out of Instagram, Made by Many has created Insta.Platform . . Insta.Platform mashes up Instagram’s API with some other libraries to create a...
