The Barbarian Group: Screenstagram

Published on .

All your favorite Instagram pics can keep you company with this new app created out of The Barbarian Group, Screenstagram, which pulls your friends' Instagram photos or those from the Popular feed and turns them into a screensaver for your desktop.

The Barbarian Group had been itching to create something using the Instagram API when it was launched last February, but aimed to develop something "beyond a web-based photo browser—something to really showcase our friends' grainy, bar room photography—a way we could sit with the photos and soak them in lnoger than usually allowed by the ephemeral, wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am approach taken by the feed in the Instagram iPhone app," explains TBG developer Doug Pfeiffer on the company's blog. "So we decided on an old fashioned screen saver, a medium that doesn't get much love these days."
