"My My Hack Reactor classmate Mike Adams' app Instahood is pretty cool. It shows recent Instagram photos from any location you choose. When you first open it, you see photos at your current location. Then you can look at pictures wherever else you want, either by clicking somewhere on the map or by searching for a place (with auto-complete!)
He used Meteor (web framework), the Google Maps API, and the Instagram API."
Some of us worked on meteor, one did a meteor package, several worked on node, one or two were on rails, mine was coffee and backbone on parse. I love being at Hack Reactor! Building cooler and cooler stuff every week is downright addictive.
If anybody's coming to the next Meteor devshop event, come by and say hi!
If you want a free app to find Instagram pics nearby or on Google maps try Instabam
It was my first ever spare time app and was a lot of fun, it was doing quite well until Apple changed the App Store design, we lost 100 downloads a day instantly after that
I agree with jgh that the interface isn't the best, but that's something that can be fixed. The underlying concept of seeing everyone's Instagram pictures in your immediate vicinity is extremely appealing to me. Great work and I hope you keep refining this!
Also the "No pictures found" thing is kinda misleading since it just takes a few seconds for the pictures to load
edit: Sorry, I do think this is good...just got thrown off initially cause the interface is kinda clunky.

They've also got a developers section with a focus on creating your own sites using their infrastructure. http://developers.sna.pr/
