Instagram allows us to vicariously live through others, experiencing their moments with them. It's an enormously popular application and has already garnered 100 million users, but it has only been made available for download on Android and Apple devices.
Sure, there are third-party apps where you can browse, like, and comment on other people's Instagram photos—but they don't give you a way to upload your own pictures. So, what about all of the other people who want to share their lives, but don't have an Apple or Android device?
Well, that's where a new program called Bluestacks comes in. Bluestacks is an "app player" that lets you use mobile apps on your Mac or PC. Once you've installed it, you can use your computer to run apps like Angry Birds, Pulse News, and, you guessed it—Instagram.
First, you need the download the application. Install the software, click the search button, and find Instagram.
From there, all you have to do is log on. To upload a picture, click on the Polaroid icon on the bottom-right corner of the app.
Now, you too can use Instagram without having to conform with Android or Apple. Some people just prefer to have other phones and this is a less costly alternative to buying a device that can use Instagram. Cheat the system, man.
