Windowed is a simple new app that finally lets you upload to Instagram directly from your Mac or PC desktop.
Created by photographer and programmer Felix Sun, the app is essentially a tiny mobile browser that you can log into Instagram’s website through your mac or PC’s desktop browser. Felix Sun is a photographer that was frustrated with the process of getting photos from a computer to a smartphone to upload. He used his experience as an engineering student to develop a workaround, then decided to share the tool with other photographers FOR FREE!
What Windowed does is provide a stripped down mobile browser for computers that’s dedicated to posting photos to Instagram.
“Instagram already provides the functionality to upload photos through a web browser, but sadly this feature is locked to mobile web browsers only,” Sun writes. “Windowed overcomes this issue by pretending to be a mobile browser, allowing you to visit the Instagram mobile website directly from your Mac or Windows PC.”
