instagram iPhone App – Free
Get ready instagram app fans, as this powerful, fun, and largely popular photo sharing iPhone app has just officially released their real time API.
The newly launched Instagram API will allow developers to flesh out additional utilities designed at further enhancing photos which are currently published by the app. This will also allow for the app to gain wider acceptance and utilization via additional platforms, such as Android.

Many of you may already be familiar with Hipmunk’s search site aimed at the travel crowed, however their newly launched Hipmunk iPhone app is taking the easy and sophistication of their services to those on the go.
Simply enter your current city, or airport name, and Hipmunk will locate your airport. Next, enter your destination, departure date, and if a round trip is in order, the return date. You can also fine tune the search by entering in such details as number of passengers or class of seat desired (first class, etc.). Once the details are in place, Hipmunk goes to work and digs up the best deals!
Hipmunk knows what you want, and thus the results are sorted by price as a default. However, those who are not on a budget may also change the result priority to flight duration, time of departure, or a factor they describe as “Agony.”
Ah yes, and who could forget this weeks app Confession, that potentially turned your iPhone into a confessional.
Absolution has never been easier. Simply enter your details and you are presented with check boxes wherein you may describe your sins in detail. Let’s hope it does not auto-dial the person in question.
