So you want to get fancy do you? Plain old pictures of Tofino or Toronto aren't good enough for you? You just have to apply moody and extravagant filters to your pictures and then share them with the world? YES!

If you haven't already seen your network getting snap happy with this picture sharing app, allow me to formally introduce you to Instagram. Catching-on like wildfire, Instagram's garnered an impressive 1-million downloads in the past 3 months!

How it Works After downloading the app, you take a picture and share it with friends, fam or the world. At its core, the photo filters offered in the app are a lot like camera bag's {featured May 4th, 2010}, but Instagram takes it a step further and integrates heavy sharing capabilities like finding and following friends using the app, sharing photos on major social networking sites and commenting on others' photos. The app is as much about picture taking as it is about sharing.
