Instagram continues to be one of the most popular photo-based social networks for the iPhone, but users who want to bring that experience to the bigger desktop screen often find their options more limited. Sure, Instagram has a web site, but for those who prefer a native Mac app, there’s now Grids ($2) by Think Time Creations, a full-featured Instagram client.
Featuring a sleek adaptive UI with full Retina Display support, Grids lets you view your Instagram feeds in a native OS X window that can be dynamically resized from a full-screen presentation right down to a corner widget. You can fully participate in the Instagram network, with access to your feed, liked photos, popular photos, and even nearby photos based on your Mac’s location.
Support is provided for liking and commenting on photos and videos, following people and viewing user profiles. You can even search for people and hashtags, bookmark just about anything, and get notifications when new content is available.
