The Aviary Effects API that helps developers create their own Instagram recently made the API public and updated its developer portal. In addition, the company is offering a short-term developer contest, so you'll need to get going quickly.
Taking photos is great but what good are all those pictures if you can't share them with others? We come across lots of photo mashups and below we'll take a look at some of the best that have recently been added. These mashups share and search for images geographically, view pictures posted on Instagram photo steams and even push photos between phones. Popular APIs such as the Flickr API and GoogleMaps API are featured multiple times as expected. Meanwhile relative newcomer Instagram, which we previously covered, is proving to be increasingly popular with developers appearing three times.
