Never caught on to why people use Instagram...it makes all your photos look like sh!t.
It's more than a photography app, it's a social network. Like Flickr, but for people who are less pretentious.
As for the quality, think of your average awful cellphone photo, pretty awful, no? Now add vignetting or some of the other stock filters, and suddenly it looks less awful and has a moody feel to it. Hence the appeal. It's Lomatography all over again.
@Harlequin: I don't get what the appeal of split-tone food is.
I'm guilty of this - except I use the stock camera app. I do it when I'm eating out, so I can remember what I had, what the occasion was, who I was with, everything - photographing the food is just a part of it.
