It’s probably fair to say that, following a minor success on Apple’s App Store, since making its first appearance on Android back in April, the vintage photo-fooling-around app, Instagram, has proved to be somewhat popular.
Okay, so managing over one million downloads in the first 24-hours might class the ubiquitous app as being slightly better than ‘somewhat popular’, but regardless of being more favoured by smartphone snap sharers than, say, 50 Shades of Grey with women of a certain, desperate disposition, there’s one element that the aperture opening app is missing: a way of viewing your retro-fied photos in a larger, more homely manner. Step up Instacube.
Currently 28 days away from its Kickstarter fundraising deadline and well on target, this Android-only digital photo frame is designed specifically to let you flow your Instagram photo-feed across its glorious 600 x 600 pixel resolution (matching the Instagram max), 6.5-inch LCD touchscreen.
With 4GB of internal Flash memory, 256MB of RAM and b/g/n flavours of Wi-Fi up its digital sleeve, the Instacube stays connected to the old world image app independently, hooking onto your specified hashtags and automatically bringing them to your non-squinting eyes.
Simple to set-up, the Instacube just needs access to your wireless home network and Instagram account and – as if by magic – pretend pics from the past will stream into your wider world automatically. Plus, thanks to a built-in rechargeable battery, you can even take it with you on your travels.
