Whilst browsing the ‘Popular Photos’ on Instagram an uber successful photo-sharing mobile app, it occurred to me that it would be nice to know how its current Popular Photos compared to that of its main competitor Picplz’s ‘Interesting Photos’.
Picplz photos are accessible through its website which makes browsing and sharing photos easy from a computer. It’s current set of Interesting Photos appear to be more extensive at first glance. However Instagram’s Popular Photos refreshes more often which provides roughly the same number of images to select from.

Both applications had an amazingly beautiful selection of images. At times it was difficult to comprehend that these photos were taken on mobile devices (if they were).
Below are some of the best current photos selected from each application:
