After a low-pressure welcome overlay encouraging sign up, Instagram throws you into its best content, the most popular pictures of the moment.

When you’re ready to sign up, Instagram helps you fill in the details by suggesting data already on your phone. Unlike a number of other popular apps, Instagram only suggests Twitter or Facebook sign-ins as one of the ways to retrieve your profile picture.

Before you know it, you’re choosing which of your contacts to follow on Instagram. This step could be improved by a preview of their latest shots shared by each contact and an indication of their activity volume.

The last step is a presentation of Suggested Users; a smart way to ensure a steady stream of great photos right from the start, and inspire you to take and share your best shots.
