Instagram-Powered App Shows Users Where The Hottest Party Is
'Now' uses the photo-sharing platform's analytical power to keep users updated as to where the most popular events are taking place.
We’ve all been there. You’re sitting around with your friends, and all of you want to do ‘something,’ but no one knows what exactly. Now, there’s an app for that. Coincidentally, ‘Now’ is its name.
French web developer Benjamin Broca recently released the worldwide version of his real-time app, Now. Now is an iOS app, which is free, that allows users to explore what’s happening around them using Instagram’s photo API. Essentially, the app uses Instagram’s existing API to sort through real-time photos posted on the platform, and then organizes them by time and location.
