    Is it me (and my limited english comprehension) or you guys get excited very easily?
    For the meaning I give to "to excite" (not the sexual one of course), I can never be excited for an app...
    Yeah we throw excited around relatively easy but it is not as bad as our use of love.

    We love our wife. We love our kids. We love our mothers. We love tacos.

    So far, the only apps I was "excited" to get the full version of are Pandora, Rdio and Rhapsody. I'm cool with 6tag for Instagram. But he only other app I will be excited to see is Flipboard.

    Yes, I am very much still excited.

    Call me a sheep or whatever, but I'd much rather use an official app over a third party app any day, even if the third party app has more flair to it.

    While it is better for the platform overall to have it, I admit I have lost interest in the official app. 6tag is a superior product. This is the same as Foursquare v. 4th and Mayor, where the third party steps up over the official app. I just hope Rudy doesn't get screwed in this. That would be a blow to developers. Rudy, on his own, picked up the ball for the platform, and made it better.

    I had kind of hoped they would buy out Rudy and re-brand 6tag as official, the way Tapatalk did with Foroplex. Seems a waste to duplicate the work.

    im not as excited as i was since 6tag does everything i need it to do. If it works better or has more functionality maybe i will use it more. but i dont see that happening right away, i will install it and tr it out and go from there but to me its not a big deal anymore Rudy solved our instagram woes a long time ago. would be interesting if the official instagram app added contact integration in the people hub like twitter does.

    really the only reason to use the official app over rudys is any potential ghost banning or hashtag issues

    Yes.

    It doesn't matter if you like 6tag better or if 6tag is a better product. What matters is that Windows Phone will have the Instagram app, and that is one of the things it needs for wider adoption. All the people who have shied away from Windows Phone because it doesn't have Instagram don't want 6tag. They want Instragram. And now Windows Phone will have it.

    Whether or not 6tag is allowed to exist after the official app arrives is an unknown. If it is allowed to exist, then people have a second, better option. But it's Instagram itself that's going to bring people.

    Its always nice to have the official apps. It brings credibility and more users to the OS. Having said this, i seriously doubt the official app will be better than 6tag, at least in the early versions. I will take a look at it but i will not trade 6tag for an inferior app, official or not. This kind of reminds me of the "Beem Plus" and the "Digitally imported" apps. Digitally imported finally came to WP and i have them both in my 920 for the time being but when im in the mood for electronic music i keep going to Beem Plus.

    Not excited at all, we're all spoiled by 6tag with all its amazing features and great looking UI. There is absolutely nothing the official app can do better..

    Am I the only person stunned by the horrible attitude of posters about this?

    For as long as I've been coming to WPcentral people have been asking, begging, whining, crying about Instagram. Now that its coming people are like 'who care? Screw them'

    Seriously?
    That is because, like myself, many people have been totally spoiled by Rudy Huyn's 6tag. So, let me say it again, who cares about the official Instagram app?

    If you have a vested interest in the Windows Phone platform growing, YOU should care. Anyone who wants to see WP succeed should care; they should download, login and use the Instagram app, even it if's just to do it and then immediately switch back to 6tag. Or never use Instagram again, whatever.

    WP needs big apps. Big app developers need to see that there's a demand for big apps on WP. "This third party app is better, I don't care about the official app" is not going to show them the demand. Downloading, installing, and using the official app will.

    Rudy's app is great and it filled a void for sure. But if no one touches the official app because of it, I predict it will have a negative effect on the platform in the long run.

    I'm not saying don't use 6tag. I'm just saying use the official app once or twice to prove to big app developers that they should be on Windows Phone as well as iOS and Android.

    (And the same goes for Vine, and Snapchat if they ever put out an official app.)
