Instagram + Pinterest = Pinstagram

Instagram and Pinterest are the two heavyweights when it comes to sharing photos on the web. While Pinterest can be accessed using a web browser, Instagram is only available to smartphone users (via a downloadable app) across Apple's iOS and Google's Android platforms. With both the apps immensely popular across their respective circles, how do you choose between the two?
