Any chance you're planning on a web profile for app users? I think it's a fantastic program, but I'd love to be able to link to a URL for my own profile so I can see images, followers, comments, etc. You can do this with Twitpic, and it's really useful - I think it would make Instagram the ultimate social imaging app!

Well, i see Instagram as an iPhone only tool. I'm not really sure, if a web profile makes sense...

yes of course - better invite possibilities etc., better promotion for the service. some things are also better to handle, edit, delete or whatever when you access them in a webbrowser and not on the iPhone. what i didn't like about treehouse is that it is walled into the iPhone and that feels strange to me.

Agreed, it's like TwitPic. Photosharing should be accessible via the web. If you tweet a pic, it links back to the Instagr.am website, but you can't do anything else (see other pictures by that user, etc). Plus, sometimes I'll post a picture that I'd like to share later, without having to repost it. Just something to consider.

I'd even pay for a pro account on the website.
So you could give us more features but still keep a free product in the App Store, for all those who just want a simple and easy to use photo sharing app.

I see little point in 'sharing' to my networks on Facebook or Twitter if my contacts can only click through, see one photo, and a pitch to download the app. Instagram is great as a self-contained social network, but to really succeed it needs to be much more open, and a fully-functional web profile and gallery is a huge part of that.

The most important part for me would be the option to see all my pictures, the pictures I liked within the app and maybe to see the pictures of the people I follow.

I don`t own an iPhone and most likely never will. But a lot of friends do and I really would like to be able to follow there pictures posted to instagram. So some sort of web accessibility either an RSS feed or a custom web page would not care which just something. Hope this feature become a reality, and would be really nice!

My thought exactly. That way one can also import his/her photos into one the many lifestream apps ;-)

It would also be great if the profile page had rss capabilities.
