Padgram 2.6 for iPad-Top Instagram Viewer Creates Eye-Catching Shoutouts
November 21, 2012 in Photo and Video
[prMac.com] Wuhan, China - Pinssible Labs today is pleased to announce Padgram - Instagram Viewer for iPad 2.6, a major update to its photo app, which has become the preferred Instagram viewer for iPad. Listed in the Top 25 Photo & Video apps in the U.S. App Store, Padgram offers fast and simple tagging, browsing, and interaction with other users for a better social experience. The update makes giving or requesting eye-catching, spam-free Shoutouts easy with a new Promote button, which generates a beautiful collage based on the user's most liked photos, ready for posting to Instagram.
An Instagram Shoutout gives a user an opportunity for self or cross promotion, asking others to recommend that their followers should begin following the user or other Instagram member. Typically, users take a photo of a profile on Instagram, posting it with a Shoutout hashtag. Far from ideal, this low-tech solution can at best be ineffective, and at worst be seen as spam.
The new Promote button in Padgram 2.6 selects six random photos a member has posted, and it creates a visually pleasing collage. There are three photos in the top row and three in the bottom row, and each photo is tilted slightly, each overlapping two adjacent photos just a bit. This sophisticated design presents a sampling of the member's tastes and interests, and serves as a stylish image that is ideal for giving or requesting a Shoutout.

Padgram 2.6 augments the social experience of Instagram viewing on the iPad. The user is presented with a grid of photos in whichever group he or she searches, whether it be Followed, Subscriptions, Likes, or Popular photos. The grid uses the entirety of the iPad's large screen, allowing for clear and vivid shots of each picture sized reasonably. To view just one picture, the user simply taps on the desired photo. A screen will then slide over, showing the photo's description, comments, and likes.
Here, the user is able to comment with just one tap on the "Add Comments" space. Along with the keyboard, Padgram also offers easy symbol use, so the user does not have to switch keyboards to add a common "at" symbol, hashtag, emoticon, etc. While a custom hashtag symbol on its own is available, the app also offers suggestions for popular tags.
Padgram's Searched feature is especially advanced in its suggestion technology. The app retains the user's searches, so that a user returning for the same search does not have to retype. The search feature also offers intelligent suggestions for user names or tags as users type, so they may choose one with just one simple click.
Sharing photos is easy with Padgram; it allows users to save and send pictures to email as well as the popular social networking sites Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Pocket, and Sina Weibo. The user's favorite pictures can be easily printed and sent as postcards.
"We are always working hard to improve on our success with Padgram," commented Paul Yan of Pinssible. "We think our new Promote function for creating Shoutout collages will be appreciated by all our current and future users."
