Dead simple Instagram client for Mac

I made this little status bar app to have basic Instagram experience on my Mac. I know there was a couple of very similar apps presented before but I made it more robust and polished. vu supports multiple accounts and can upload photos directly from built-in camera.

Yes, now you can take selfie on your Mac and post it to Instagram instantly. 👌🏻
