    But this has to have gone through *multiple people* at MS to get published on the store, beta or not, April fools or not, it had to go passed a few people at MS.

    Oh. I really hope Instagram comes sooner. It'll bring a lot of peeps to the Windows Phone community. I don't use it but I am thinking about it now. Too bad there is no tour for Instagram like how Facebook had tours before joining.

    This is either the most elaborate April Fools joke ever, or awesome news for WP fans...
    I really hope it's the latter :-D

    Maybe he has it? Remember the big fiasco right before WP8 was released, developer names are FIRST COME FIRST SERVE regardless.
    That was for Windows 8 only. WP had different policies as it has been around longer.

    Not necessarily. Just one, each step to certification is automated except for the content compliance check which states "Content compliance is tested manually by a person."

    Agreed. That was Windows 8. if Wp had that policy the developers of the app Lomogram would have been Burbn Inc. then all of the third party apps would have the official companies name then.

    WP8 XAP's are signed. Can't do a unzip like the WP7 days.

    No way Microsoft would let this pass through if it is just an April's fool joke. Microsoft is trying to make fun of its own users? I mean they have the right app name and developer name.

    Im already made a bet with my cousin... he is such of microsoft hater and he telling he is 110 percent this is fake and I hoping he is wrong so I can win the bet and get 20 bucks in my pocket ;). The irony of the history is that he loves playing on xbox live instead of PSN lol

    If this is a fake, and MS is powerless to prevent it from going to the marketplace, wouldn't someone from MS at least reveal it as a fake to prevent the inevitable backlash? You know, just tweet, "That's not really Instagram."

    Link to the XAP if someone hasn't posted it already - https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B2xJ...c4bTJ2bTQ/edit
    Disclosure - not my link, I didn't upload it, I don't take any responsibility if it ends the world etc... That said, seems legit.

    Yep true, if they are than yes I'll remain put, but if this is staged by MS, boy oh boy, the love is over and I've been using WP since day one.

    You can just download the XAP file from the Windows Phone site.

    Got tired of waiting for apps like Instagram and Snapchat, so moved to BlackBerry 10, and sideloaded both apps! Their a little slow but they work!

    Do hope this is real as I want Microsoft to succeed in the mobile space, but my Z10 is keeping me happy for now. :) Just happy I didn't have to go to iOS or Android....yuck.

    Lol it's not like it's MS fault. The developer made it pretty real. Maybe it's real, who knows. But anyways this is NOT the official app
