Too late to mail out your Valentine’s Day cards? Lovestagram has got you covered thanks to a very determined (and well connected) lady, Kaitlyn Trigger. Kaitlyn happens to be Instagram founder Mike Krieger’s girlfriend. She gave herself a deadline of February 14th to launch her own Instagram API program that converts shared instagrams into an e-valentine.I am amazed that someone who has never taken a computer class in her life took it upon herself to teach herself how to write the code (the foundation of a website) by reading Learn Python The Hard Way. That is love.
Of course I had to try it for myself. Problem is my husband is not on Instagram, he hasn’t even joined the apple crowd yet. You have to chose someone you have interaction with on instagram, there must be mutual comments and photos tagged for Lovestagram to be able to link the two of you. So who’s next in line, lucky Dave Grohl that’s who. And because Lovestagram thinks we are “connected” @foofighters will be on the receiving end of this e-valentine.
It’s easy – Once you give Lovestagram permission to access your instagram account it will ask you for the instagram name of the receiver.
Happy Friday y’all!
