TILES: Inkly Launches Tiles App For Instagram Lovers 

New Android app allows users to access their Instagram feed from their lock screen

London - 13 July 2015 - Inkly has launched its new, free app today, Tiles, exclusively for Android devices.

Tiles allows you to access your Instagram feed without having to unlock your phone. It displays photos as a collage on the lock screen, allowing you to scroll through and see multiple images at once. You can also like photos without having to unlock your phone.

Tiles can be used offline, so you can browse your Instagram feed and any posts that you like will be synced up once you get a data connection. You can also view posts in full screen and filter which accounts’ images are displayed on your lock screen, in case you don’t want certain images to be publicly displayed.

“It’s perfect for Instagram fans who just can’t get enough of their friends’ photos and want to view and like them quickly and easily, without having to unlock the phone, go into the app, wait for the feed to update and scroll through the posts,” said Peter Ryder, co-founder of Inkly. “It also gives you a really attractive and constantly changing background on your phone.”

While up until now, Inkly has been known for its popular handwriting greetings card and photo editing app, the company is branching out into new areas.

Lee Hawkins, co-founder of Inkly, said: “We’re really excited to officially launch Tiles. Everything we do is centred around a personalised experience, whether that’s through written messages or photos. And we’ve got more to come in the near future!”

The App can be downloaded from the Google Play store at:
