For the most part, social software sucks. They all seem to be a clone of Facebook or Google+ and nobody is doing anything exciting with it. Except Instagram. Instagram is revolutionary and it's completely changing both the way and frequency that people are sharing pictures from their lives. But there's one thing that really sucks about Instagram: it's only available on iOS and Android and, as far as I know, the company has no plans to bring the program to desktop users.
That's why I'm excited to announce that I'm starting a project to bring Instagram to Linux. And by 'bring it to Linux' I don't mean some crappy app that barely works when it chooses to actually start up. I mean doing Instagram the right way; beautifully. The software has brought beauty into our lives, a Linux client featuring it should be equally beautiful.
I'm beginning work on FriendlyPhotos today and will make regular announcement via this blog as I progress. I'll have something soon so keep your eyes open for updated postings. Oh, and just in case you're wondering, FriendlyPhoto's is not an Instagram official app. I have nothing to do with the people who make Instagram. I'm just a user who loves the program and wants to bring it to Linux.
