Visual Grub, an Instagram Mac Client

Posted on Oct 10, 2011

If you’re a fan of Instagram, you’re going to want to try out Visual Grub, a free Mac desktop client made by Ryan Grimm. Download it from the Mac App Store here.

It’s full of features, including:

  • View your Instagram friend feed
  • A feed of the photos you’ve liked
  • View what’s popular right now
  • See the photos posted by a user
  • Like and comment on photos
  • Detail view of any photo
  • See who’s liked any photo
  • Read comments
  • Resizable photo thumbnails
  • Follow and unfollow users
  • Offline viewing

Ryan was nice enough to send me an earlier version to play with and it’s fun to see one of my photos used in his screenshots.
