The inside scoop on how Tapmates team design and build their iOS & Mac OS X apps

An open letter to Instagram

by Robin on 14 December 2010

Instagram is one of the hottest photo sharing apps on the App Store right now. There's one problem: it doesn't look that great. At Tapmates, we take pride in our icons and user interfaces, so we decided to mock-up what it would look like if we made it. Keep in mind that this is for personal reasons—Instagram did not hire us to do so.

If you would like to see a better design as much as we do, please Retweet this post and spread the word! Without further ado.

UPDATE: We would like to explain what our intention was.
