Rainstagram

Post by Seahorse »

I really enjoy digital photography and Instagram is a nice accessible way you can check out other people's work and gain some inspiration. Unless it is one of those over-filtered, heavily saturated shots I dislike intensely that always seem to win PhotooftheDay!

I did check to see if there was a neater way of doing this but it appears my original approach is about as good as it gets.

So, where am I? Using the RSS feed over at Webstagram I have taken the first 5 from the Popular feed and they toggle quite happily.

To do:

Add buttons for Photooftheday and your personal feed assuming you have an account (which you need to set up on your phone). Then implement those as well, current plan is to integrate all of them into a single skin, and recycle as much of the code as possible. Will have to see how it goes over the weekend.

Code: Select all
