Instagram is a free, easy to use photo-sharing service.

Using Instagram, photos snapped with cameras, smartphones, tablets or other devices can be quickly edited and posted to Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare or Tumblr.

(A Flickr version is expected soon.) What has garnered Instagram so much attention is that its creators have found a way to let users take advantage of photo filters and borders, keeping the program simple and functional.

The first step is to download and install the app, which is available as free downloads from the Apple App Store @ http://itunes.com/apps/ instagram/ or the Google Play market @ http://goo.gl/ZDZfk. The Instagram application is compatible with the iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch running iOS 3.1.2 or above or any Android device running Android 2.2 or above.
