Apps of the Week: Instagram, Instacast HD, Screeny

It’s Friday, and that means it’s time to take a look at some awesome apps for each platform: iPhone, iPad, and Mac OS. Today, we’re focusing on online shopping, keeping track of time, and photo editing.

Ready? Let’s begin.

iPhone/iPod touch:

Instagram: This app is a cool way to share your life with friends through a series of pictures. Snap a photo, then choose a filter to transform the look and feel of the shot into a memory to keep forever. Think of it as the social network – for pictures. Need someone to follow? Try me! @jarederondu. If your pictures are cool, I just might follow you back.

Instacast HD: Love podcasts? So do we. In fact, we have one ourselves. However, it can easily become a hassle to stay up-to-date with the latest episodes of every podcast you follow. That’s where Instacast comes in. With its simple UI, you’ll never feel overwhelmed again. Add your podcast, set how often you want the app to refresh itself, and bam! All your podcasts in one place updating on their own. The best part, now it’s on both iPhone and iPad.

Screeny: This app lets you capture videos or images of your desktop at any size. Just click and drag to resize the capture area or input the exact pixel dimensions to set to the size of the capture area. Drastically reduce video file sizes and get only the portion of the screen you want. No more cleaning up your desktop for one shot.
