Ink361 (formerly known as Inkstagram) is a free online Instagram web viewer. It provides an elegant interface to browse your Instagram photos, explore photos of your followers, following people, like and comment on photos etc. The interface of this website is far better and useful than Instagram web app. You will be provided a Deck where you can add columns to view Instagram Feed, My Photos, Popular photos, of photos of any user simultaneously.
Apart from this, this free Instagram web viewer has two unique features: Map Viewer and Album Creator. Map viewer is handy to find all the Instagram photos which have been uploaded with geotags, and Album Creator lets you generate custom albums to organize your Instagram photos. However, do note that albums are published to your Ink361 account only, and not on Instagram.
In the screenshot above, you can see the ‘Deck’ where I have added desired columns to view Instagram photos.
