If you're an iPad users, you know that instagram doesn't gave tablet-optimized version. So I decided to find about an app that solve the problem that lets you browse Instagram.

Instagram restricts its API so
that no third-party app can be used to upload photos.

Today, I encountered Flow for Instagram , which is best app to use though it can upload pictures.

The free Flow app has
- a gorgeous design with little touches that makes it easy to use.
And aside from the obvious lack of uploading pictures ability, it has nearly all of the features you're looking for in an iPad Instagram app:
- the ability to like and comment on photos;
- search by user, hashtag, and location;
- swipe from one expanded photo to the next;
- share photos on Facebook and Twitter and save to your camera roll;
- explore users outside of
those I follow; and

search button (tags, users, and places).
The settings button lets you turn on or off autoplay for Instagram videos and usernames in your feed.

If you have usernames turned off, you can bring them up by long-tapping any photo in the feed you are looking at.

Flow has a useful "peek" feature where you can tap a
username, profile photo, and hashtags to bring up a small minifeed window. The
