Instabam sounds familiar doesn’t it? Near identical to Instagram, right? There’s a reason for that. Instabam is an app that uses the Instagram API to enable users to quickly view photos that have been taken near them by people who have been using Instagram.

It’s a neat little idea and one that produces some interesting results. Instabam shows all the photos taken near the user at the time of use. It’s then possible to adjust the distance of the search as well as view the location of each photo on a map.

Instabam looks set to be a fantastic way of not only learning more about the scenery and interests of those around the user’s local area, but also to find new people on Instagram to follow. An update for Instabam is promised with the ability to ‘Like’ and ‘Follow’ users from within the app which should make the app an ideal addition to fans of social photography.

Instabam is available now for free for all iOS devices.
