The timing was interesting with this recent Instagram backup app we launched. The end of the world, Facebook privacy policy issues, never use the service again..etc. The truth is, that the Jivaldi team loves Instagram. We upload photos to our Instagram account regularly. It’s simple, fun and we like it even more than Twitter. So, we decided to make an iPhone app – something you can quickly and easily backup all your Intagram photos with. And with great APIs from Instagram and Dropbox we were able to kick it out pretty quickly.

And recent events certainly hasn’t hurt our cause.

Aside from the particular privacy concerns that recently caused Facebook to change the policy, Facebook explicitly states in their updated Instagram Terms of Use page, …“Consequently, Instagram encourages you to maintain your own backup of your Content. In other words, Instagram is not a backup service and you agree that you will not rely on the Service for the purposes of Content backup or storage. Instagram will not be liable to you for any modification, suspension, or discontinuation of the Services, or the loss of any Content.”

So there you go! Kind of worked out for us pretty well and we’re surprised by the download response. So without further introduction, now comes our shameless plug for you to download the app. 🙂 Enjoy!

Oh and one last thing, we have some more stuff we’ll be launching for Instagram later. Keep abreast of this at Stay tuned.

    The app looks so cute, its cool idea to have a backup, I would certainly prefer to go with, waiting to buy an Ipad soon and install this app in it.
