Instagrille for Pokki is a hybrid Instagram-focused tool that is useful but also frustrating in terms of its requirements. Because it forces installation of Pokki, creates irremovable quick launch icons, and creates a native app-interface on your PC that you may not want, it has its trade-offs, though the interface is decidedly stripped down, offering a useful way to browse Instagram on your desktop.
Installation will take some time as you need to also install Pokki and new menu items are created as the app-interface is generated on your desktop. To open Instagrille, you must open Pokki first and find the app. It will then open with random Instagram images sorted by popularity or location. You can also log in to your account and view images in your feed. With only a handful of buttons, a small screen and a tiled interface, it is very much an app in the style of Windows Phone 8 or iOS 6, but it works quite well on your desktop. Responsive and fast, it is a great browsing tool for Instagram, allowing you to like, share, comment on, and upload images quickly, as you would on your phone.
If you don’t mind installing Pokki and its proprietary app interface on your PC, or if you already have it installed, Instagrille is one of the better ways to surf through Instagram images on your desktop. If you prefer not to add new interface layers to your machine, this app may be too intrusive. Uninstallation is just as frustrating as the initial install.
