Screenstagram

The most awesome Instagram-driven screen saver, ever

What Is Screenstagram?

Quite simply, Screenstagram is a screensaver for your Mac. It consumes photos from the always engaging Instagram service, displaying them in a beautifully suited array on your idling screen. It can consume your friend’s Instagram photos or those otherwise highly-rated from across the Instagram community.

We wanted this, and so it is. That’s all. And now it can be yours. Made with Cinder.

Here’s a video demonstrating Screenstagram and how to install.
