in Software (E)

[] Seattle, Washington - RogueSheep today is pleased to announce that their new Mac application Instaview is now available on the Mac App Store. Instaview brings a new opportunity for Mac users who wish to immerse themselves within the ever-growing Instagram community.

"We're excited by Instaview's ability to show anything from a single large window showing a user's own feed in a beautiful frame to a dozen small slideshows showing all manner of streams with no frames at all." said RogueSheep co-founder Matt Joss. "We feel Instaview provides an unparalleled experience for members of the Instagram community."

Instaview allows users to create one or more stream windows showing Instagram photos. The stream shown in each window is configurable as well as the size and frame of the window itself. Streams can display their photos either in an automatic slideshow mode or by direct user navigation. Controls on the window overlay allow users to browse information about the photo including the location, contributor, caption, timeframe of the photo, number of likes and comments.

Popovers can be shown to show the list of comments or people who have liked a particular photo as well as contributor information such as the followers or people another contributor is following. Instaview users can also like and comment on photos as well as follow other contributors within these popovers.

Features include:
* Popular, My Feed, My Photos, My Liked, Location, User and Tag streams
