Find Photos By Location Using Pixifly
While Instagram offers a treasure trove of images, it is very difficult to search for anything specific within this particular treasure trove. Pixifly is an iOS app that seeks to address this problem. Using this app, you can find Instagram images by location and time. Once you have logged in using your Instagram account, you will be presented with current images from within a mile of your current location. This is just the tip of the iceberg of Pixifly’s features though. You can search by location, which can mean a city’s name, an address, a landmark, or by choosing a point on a map. Once you have selected a location, you can then specify how large of a radius you would like to apply, allowing you to see images from as far away as three miles from your selected location or as close as 100 feet. You can also specify that you would only like to see images from a specific date and even time.
While Pixifly does not offer options to add hashtags or other other search terms to your search, it is a great way of finding images for a particular location. The results can be displayed as a list or on a map, which makes it even more clear exactly where they were taken. If you find yourself frequently looking for images from particular locations or planning travel by looking at online photos of a city, Pixifly is a nice tool to sort through the many and varied pictures available on Instagram.
