Smarter Apps let us know about their latest BlackBerry PlayBook app called InstaPhoto. InstaPhoto lets you take pictures with your PlayBook and then apply filters to modify the image. You can then save and share the image on Twitter, Facebook or Tumblr. The app has 25 preset effects you can apply to images that are quite fun. You can see all of the effects at the end of this article. They range from the popular borders and tilt shift to radiant rays and mugshots.

Features include:

  • Easy to get started, simply choose a preexisting photo or snap one right away. Camera integration runs directly within app, allowing you to take a photo and start instantly!
  • Images save to a custom gallery folder, and are featured when you load the app, or you can opt to view the latest uploads on Twitter from your friends!
  • Large preview images allow you to see an effect clearly before making a selection.
  • Simple controls with stunning pre-set effects, it’s easy for anyone to use with just a tap of the finger!
  • Quick rending, no long loading times for an effect.

  5. Will this work on a BB Bold??

    I am looking for an ‘Instagam like’ photo app for that. Struggling =(

  6. InstaPhoto is ok, but a few of the filters (like “dusk”) look like there are water trails on it. I’m messaged their tech support – 2 weeks ago – and have heard nothing back. It IS the filters and not my phone. The original pictures had nothing on it whatsoever.
    Plus, there isn’t a social connection like Instagram. It would be nice if there was a site to upload the pics to like Instagram.
