Hands-on with the Instagramers app

The official Instagramers app is now available FREE for download from iTunes.

The description says it all – it’s a great reference app for new and even advanced Instagram users (or IGers) – offering news, tutorials/tips, IGer features, and a hash tag search utility.

The real deal with this app is the hash tag search feature, just tap on Tags. In Instagram, a hash tag is a word or phrase (without space, such as #myphotocollection) that makes tagging (read: grouping) and finding photos easy.

Type in the hash tag and tap search.

The search result provides you with the hash tag creator, number of tagged photos, and the date of creation. You can also view the results, the hash-tagged posts in grid view, in Instagram.
