Do you desire to have the ability to transfer pictures straight from your computer to Instagram, rather than by utilizing your cellphone? Apparently, there’s an app for that. It was created by the most unlikely of characters—a 17-year old, student from California. Caleb Benn hacked into Instagram’s API system and successfully created a platform application to upload pictures from computers.
It would be a momentous achievement of something that many have been trying to do since the onset of Instagram. Still, Instagram honchos are stating the practices completed by Benn may not have been entirely legal. One technologist named Chris Messina told CNN that “enabling computers to upload content could take away the platform’s aesthetic tone”. For this reason, Benn’s innovative app may be dismissed before many are even aware of its existence.
