  • Q. Why is this service free?

    It started off as a really underground tool, we put up a quick web page to share it with friends and they ended up sharing it with their friends as well. Gramblr is quite popular now, and we have not thought about possible income from it yet because we're so busy improving it!

  • Q. Are you associated with Instagram?

    We have no association with Instagram.

  • Q. What are the coins for in the application?

    We wanted to create something for our users to do together, and we thought creating a little "game of likes" would be quite fun. It's a nice way to see and like other people's pictures, and being able to expect the same in return if you want to! We think it could become an easier way for some people to get noticed and get followers too.
