Instagram is one of the fastest growing social platform out there, but despite being a real “mobile” platform, Instagram is yet to propose an iPad app.
Several developers have jumped into the opportunity, but one of them really caught our attention. Meet Retro, the Instagram viewer app for iPad.

Here is a short introductory video:
Retro offers 3 viewing modes: a single column mode which is very similar to Instagram‘s own newsfeed, a grid mode, and finally a mosaic (cascade) mode which will remind users of what Pinterest offers.
Retro was designed with users in mind and makes it as easy as possible to switch between different viewing modes as well as multiple accounts (available on the premium version) with intuitive gestures. For example, you can pull down a pop-up window or photo viewer to close it or swipe left and right to go back and forth between pics.
Retro designer, Louis Nguyen explained:
