Having originally started with a relatively humble photo sharing app, Instagram had morphed into a massive online community even before Facebook bought it, and now it’s the place to go if you want to share that cute cat picture, especially if you want to then share that across multiple social networks. The problem with Instagram though, and it’s a problem with all social networks, you find yourself checking it far too often, and that starts to get annoying for other people. And we’re all guilty of it.
But what if we told you that you could check Instagram from your iPhone’s Lock Screen? Sounds good right? Oh, and you can do it for free, too. That sounds even better!
Feeday, which can bee downloaded for free from the App Store right now, does exactly that. Once installed and plugged with your Instagram credentials, Feeday will take your Instagram feed and put it into the iOS Notification Center as a widget, meaning you can get your Instagram fix no matter which app you are using, and in fact even when your iPhone is locked. If you just can’t get enough of Instagram and your friends and family are tired of watching you check the app all day, then Feeday may just save you from getting any more dirty looks from them. And that’s never a bad thing.
If you want to just see one image in your Feeday feed then the app won’t cost you a penny, but a $0.99 in-app purchase will unlock the ability to see multiple images at once – something that’s a steal for the most discerning Instagram addict!
Interestingly, Feeday’s App Store description also says that an Apple Watch element is on its way, so if that sounds like something that will float your boat then Feeday may well be the app for you – especially given that cheap or indeed free price.
You can download Feeday from here. Works with both iPhone and iPad.
