The iTunes App Store has a new app called Instragram, created by the founder of Burbn.

The key feature that makes this app different from many other photo-sharing sites is the ability to apply an artistic filter on your photos (which basically just makes them look cooler).

After taking a photo and filtering it, Instagram asks "what" and "where" to describe the photo. Then it shows up in your stream:

The app launches an hour ago, and the "Popular Photos" page on Instagram already looks better than Flickr's Explore page.

I think this is a really cool app, and I will consider using it as my main photo "sending" app. I can cross-post to Twitter, Flickr, Foursquare, Facebook, and Tumblr if I want as well, so I'm not neglecting any of my current social networks.

The app is beautiful, and I suggest you try it. Here's a direct link to download it.
