Head here to download this app for the first time, if you haven’t already. It’s free.

What’s New


View photos you’ve liked: See all the photos you’ve liked since you joined Instagram. It’s an easy way to show your friends memorable photos or re-discover some of your favorites. Just tap Profile > Photos you’ve liked.

Add a link to your website in your profile: Let your Instagram followers find out more about you by adding a website to your profile bio. Just tap Profile > Edit Profile to add your site.

Auto-complete for hashtags: Entering # in a comment will display a list of hashtags you’ve used previously. Tapping a result from that list will autocomplete the hashtag for you, so no need to type it all out manually. Inserting text after the # sign will include tags you’ve searched for (in addition to ones you’ve used on previous photos). The more letters you type, the more refined the list of tags becomes.

Profile photo saves to library: When taking a profile photo, your photo will be saved to your device’s camera roll automatically (Profile > Change profile picture > Take picture).

Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website—— TheAppWhisperer platform has been a pivotal cyberspace for mobile artists of all abilities to learn about, to explore, to celebrate and to share mobile artworks. Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said. Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus. She has presented lectures bolstering mobile artists and their art from as far away as the Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea to closer to her home in the UK at Focus on Imaging. Her experience as a jurist for mobile art competitions includes: Portugal, Canada, US, S Korea, UK and Italy. And her travels pioneering the breadth of mobile art includes key events in: Frankfurt, Naples, Amalfi Coast, Paris, Brazil, London. Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art. Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine. Her own freelance photographic journalistic work is also widely acclaimed. She has been published extensively both within the UK and the US in national and international titles. These include The Times, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Popular Photography & Imaging, dpreview, NikonPro, Which? and more recently with the BBC as a Contributor, Columnist at Vogue Italia and Contributing Editor at LensCulture. Her professional photography has also been widely exhibited throughout Europe, including Italy, Portugal and the UK.
