App of the Week: My Top Ten Most Used Apps
Like the iPhone, it took me awhile to come around to Instagram, but now that I have, I really do enjoy the filters and the ease of posting images both to its social network and to others. As a photographer, I find it to be a pretty creative tool even if it is "just a toy," as some would have you believe. It doesn't make you a photographer, but anything that teaches people creativity is fine by me.
This app is such a piece of crap, but it is the ONLY piece of crap that allows quality access to the social media monolith that is Facebook. Mobile has clearly never been a substantial priority for Zuckerberg Inc., but when you need to like someone's inspirational photo of a sunset, you don't have much choice.
I'm a Twitter junkie. I have been since it started. Maybe I'm better with 140 characters than I am with paragraphs -- let's hope not -- but I just enjoy the back and forth of the medium and there's no better way to access it than through Echofon.
