Ink361.com Launches a Complete New Beta Version of its Instagram Web Browser
As an early adapter of the Instagram API, Ink361 has garnered an impressive fan base with over 3 million users since March of 2011.
Carel van Apeldoorn, CEO of Ink limited, (see his interview here) explained that “the focus for this new up-date was on improving the user experience and to become the best at the basics” which are viewing, sharing, and discovering exceptional photos and photographers, according to his opinion.
This new version incorporates “an entire re-design of the website”. It includes many familiar tools such as a grid viewer, but expands on that by allowing the option to view photos in 3 different sizes, a map viewer and new slide show viewer to enjoy the photos.
The site offers the subtle and nice detail of allowing users to change the background color from light to dark.
Carel mentioned that “a big challenge on Instagram is to find users and photos that are valuable to you”. The new upgrade includes an innovative followers and followings viewer that enables users to do just that. Ink361 has creatively formatted a way to help users more easily discover new friends and to find photos that inspire and are meaningful.
Marketing for Companies: Interesting for both private users and companies are the tools that can be found in the “Promote” section. All these tools can be very useful to connect your Instagram photos into websites and social networks.
Ink361 is that it’s completely free, and requires no login, therefore making it a website for anyone that wants and likes to discover Instagram.
Launched in March of 2011, the company has already seen much success – clocking up over 4 million unique visitors, with over 2.4 million visits in July of 2012. More info at:
