Localite is an Instagram browsing app that allows users to find photos taken by photographers in their area. The minimalist interface is split up into two tabs, a map view and a browse view, with the photo itself serving as the thumbnail on the map, allowing users to quickly interact with photos they find interesting.
Instagram's public REST API is utilized to display photos based on the user's current location via MapKit and CLLocationManager. A custom collection view flow layout allows for portrait and landscape photos to display seamlessly on the main browse screen. And CIFilters are used to blur the background display for a clean edge-to-edge viewing experience.
