    This now really sucks.
    Instagram has started removing all the images uploaded by third-party apps such as Instance.
    Even Daniel Gary is stunned by this.

    Have started really hating you now, Instagram. Go to hell!

    Seeing all those complaining people and whole mess around Instagram I thank god I don't have it. ;-) Isn't it better to apply filter in aviary/fotor etc. and then just upload it to Facebook without resolution and quality loss? - oh sorry, 'original' hashtags x1000 and Instagram brand grants additional likes... :p

    I ll never get it, it makes pics look like they were taken in nazi 30s.

    OT: It seems Facebook is having issues with Microsoft, otherwise we would already have a full functional app.

    There's a lot of things I will never get either. But then, it really is a waste of time trying to determine why people like something. At the end of the day, people like what they like. If it ain't killing anyone, then do what you gotta do...

    Tony, let's say I'm not modern enough to understand the phenomenon of Instagram :-) I'm just happy I don't have my pants (#Instapants) filled to the brims, when I read about:
    new instagram app by rudy hyun possible date of official app coming to WP Store
    third-party Instagram app issues

    Of course I appreciate developers for bringing such apps, it attracts users to WP. I've heard plenty times 'Don't buy WP phone, theres no instagram' 'I wait 2 weeks, if theres no instagram app I will sell this phone' 'It is available on Android and iOS, iOS rules, WP is ****'. Can you believe it? - Seems that some people would happily buy a phone without text-messaging and calling option if it has Instagram preinstalled. lol

    you people should understand that what you just described doesn't give the same experience, an example for that, is like owning a super car, but not being allowed to fix it at the car dealer, nor driving in a race track, instead, you have to fix it at a local workshop and drive it in your neighborhood, where no one will see it but the granny next door. Got it?

    So, you're trying to say, that you're taking images, editing with custom filters just to let people see it and ''like'' it? No matter if filter makes it over-colored and unreal... Okay, I understand and won't discuss about it... As for me I just take photos to show them to my friends and family, I'm not changing it with filters. There's no need to do that. I believe photography is meant to catch REAL people, what they look like in specified situation, NATURAL scenery and colors around them. Well... also I don't complain about my relationship and life, I know my value and I don't need to share my photos with 1936172815 people around to collect "likes" and make them see "my new car". That's my point of view. Greetings ;-)

    I have no clue what your point is.

    Bottom line, an app is there for you to use if you want or ignore of you choose. I don't like Halo. Never have and never will. Doesn't mean I can't understand why the new game is a big deal to some folks.

    I know nothing about Instagram. Had never even heard of it, until all of a sudden it was a big deal. But, unfortunately, truths abound here:

    -Like Pandora before it, this is the standard bearer for WP being behind other OS's. Until it is a part of WP's ecosystem, it will cost sales.

    -Instagram is owned. Facebook has a right to do with it as it pleases. If it wants to block 3rd party apps, block it they can and will. Cussing at them in our threads solves nothing.

    -I have no idea what solves it. Nokia has worked hard to get them onboard. It has been rumored for months to be coming.

    -Even after it comes to WP, some other shortcoming will take it's place until WP is in double-digit worldwide sales and developers want to be here, instead of having to be bribed to be here.
