We’re glad to announce Padgram 3.0, a major update to the photo app. The update includes support for both portrait and landscape orientation and browsing by category as well as popularity, including: Nature, Pets, Girls, Kids, Food, Fashion, Cars, and Architecture.
The most important new feature in this update of Padgram is a redesigned browsing system based on categories in addition to popularity. Although browsing based on number of followers is common in Instagram and Instagram viewers, results are often skewed towards celebrities and businesses. Instead of browsing the most popular photos, users instead are browsing the photos of the most popular people or companies posting photos. With the addition of browsing by categories, Padgram can now more accurately reflect the interest in photos posted by a broad spectrum of typical Instagram users. Each category contains 100 users of the service, chosen by experts at Padgram. Users can email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) to apply for inclusion in a category, and new categories will be added over time. Here is the screenshot of the Nature category:
Previous versions of Padgram included support for operation in landscape orientation only. Receiving many user requests for the addition of portrait orientation, version 3.0 now incorporates this feature. Portrait mode is particularly valuable for iPad mini users, who typically hold their iDevice in portrait orientation. Here is the screenshot of Padgram in portrait mode:
We are always trying to be responsive to Padgram users’ requests for new features. Support for portrait orientation and browsing by categories represent a major step in the evolution of Padgram. Try it now, we won’t let you down.
