    How long did you have it for? You have to at least have it a week to get use to how the OS works.

    I do agree Windows Phone is much easier to use. WP and iOS is better for people who just want a smartphone and know how to navigate it easily without having to learn to much. Android and BB10 are more for people who like getting to know their phone and open to learning a lot.

    I think the notification system in BB10 is much more brilliant than WP. But I will always have a sweet spot for WP & Nokia. I had both the 900 & 920. :) Maybe if this Instagram thing turns out to be real and WP gets Snapchat, I may come back. :)

    By the way, what problems did you have with your Z10?

    Well when Windows Phone first came out, their offerings were much of nothing too.

    If this an April fools joke, maybe it push the Microsof to pay enough and provide us faster than they is planing, because if not, Microsoft will be the JOKE of the month.

    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.

    When i try to install on my phone via developer account it says xap is invalid

    Not really sure, but are all dev accounts automatically privy to any beta app published?

    If this is a prank (and it looks like it is)... and Microsoft is in any way knowingly involved in getting this prank out there... I'd be pretty pissed.

    No they are not. Beta apps are controlled by the publisher and is secured based on Microsoft accounts. If your Microsoft account is not explicitly entered into the beta, it has no access to the app at all.

    You cannot download beta apps from the store and sideload them at all. These XAPs from the store are different than the ones that you get directly from a developer or sideload through other means.

    That XAP probably came directly downloaded from windowsphone.com and then someone uploaded it elsewhere. There seem to be quite a few people out there who don't fully understand sideloading - particularly how it's used for app downloads directly on windowsphone.com.

    Not being able to access it makes sense if the app is designated as a "beta" app... since it would be locked if you weren't granted access. Of course, someone could be "beta testing" a prank April Fool's app (and not inviting anyone to beta test, of course)... which would be lame, but we'll see.

    I've seen it. I don't think they'd credit another developer for the metro interface, nor write "Happy April 1st" if it's real.

    It would definitely be the most outrageous and brilliant prank ever, and please let this be the sign that the real instagram is coming

    Come on guys, lets use some common sense. If they made a real instagram they would not use the EXACT images created by some guy last year as a mock up of what he thinks it should look like NOR would they design it pixel for pixel exactly what this guy mocked up.

    So incredibly fake that I don't even know why this thread is still growing.

    The app description credits this person with the design, so there is always a possibility that he was paid to help with the design/UI of the app. It also being in beta means that the screenshots might just be placeholders and not reflective of what the app really looks like in use. Many developers use a few generic images for their beta apps since the images are not really important at the beta stage of development. An image is simply needed to get past certification, and can be updated any number of times once the app is released publicly.

    how about the fact that the package is a fourth of the size that Instagram on Android and IOS is?

    sounds like a near empty app used for trolling to me.

    lol. I'm not sure what the has to do with Windows Phone package sizes. They are different development environments/platforms. Not to mention how much more fully fleshed out the iOS and Android apps are and how much longer they've been in constant development, it makes sense to assume that the 1.0 of the Windows Phone app may not include every feature from those other platforms, thus it doesn't have to be larger in file size.

    Point is, there are definitely signs that this is fake, but then there are other signs that it may be the real deal. I don't think there is enough information on either side to really say what is what. We'll find out soon enough though...
