As many of you probably know, Instagram is a popular program that enables you to share personal pictures with your friends. Unfortunately, checking other users' Instagram profiles for new content using your phone might be a bit tedious and difficult. This is why the neat Carousel application has been designed: to help users stay in touch with what's new on Instagram directly from their Mac.

Carousel comes with a very simple to use interface that makes the navigation experience easy even for novice users. The only two requirements you need to meet in order to use this program properly are to have an Internet connection and an Instagram account.

You can check the most popular photo uploads, search for friends' profiles, like and comment their posts, follow other users and many other. The best thing about using this application is that you can save any photos you like on your Mac with just one click.

My only problem with this program is that it crashes occasionally. This issue often occurs when using the search tool.

To conclude, Carousel is a nice solution for checking the latest Instagram photo uploads and staying connected to everything new on your friends' profiles. And since its price is very low, my guess is that you could give it a try.
