When you click on an Instagram user and see a perfectly patterned grid (that’s the 6-9 images you can see, made up of their latest posts), how do you feel? Overwhelmed? Jealous?

I’ve loved Hashtap from the beginning, but this mighty little app is even more helpful than ever, since Instagram quietly got rid of the “Trending Hashtags” section of their Explore tab. Hashtap helps you identify trending and popular hashtags on Instagram. This app is one of my favorites and I’ve been using it for quite a while now! I highly recommend it.

When I found Postagram, I was immediately smitten with it because of the opportunity to take your online marketing efforts, offline. With Postagram, you can send your Instagram photos as physical postcards through snail mail. For many small businesses, the personal touch is a way to differentiate.
