For either group, the Instagram equivalent of TweetDeck, a third-party app that sorts Twitter’s timeline into columns, is surely welcome news, though any celebration may be premature at this point. The result of a hackathon hosted by London-based Marvel App last week, it is still severely limited in its capabilities; you can’t login with multiple accounts or create new posts, for instance. Mashable gently put it as such: “Picdeck is really more of a viewer than a full-fledged Instagram client.”
Marvel CEO Murat Mutlu, who was first to tweet about Picdeck, told The Verge that his company was merely in the initial stages of development and that more goodies were in store.
“Imagine a column for Wembley Stadium or Ferguson etc…We’ve nearly finished location columns so that will go in soon. I think we’ll set aside some time each month for the team to keep adding to it, although there’s a ton of other hack day ideas we have so maybe next month we might have something better, who knows!”
