    So we got an official Instagram app; awesome. But where are the updates? We are still in Beta and they haven't added any features.

    My fear is MS paid for them to make an Instagram Beta app with the agreement that further development would come when a certain level of WP user base started using the app. I am just speculating what the deal might have been.

    Has anyone heard anything? Are going to get a full featured app soon?

    I was wondering this myself, and a quick Bing search turned up no info. And honestly, I used it for 2 weeks and went back to 6snap. Such a better app.

    Instagram has yet to add a link to the Windows Phone store on their website. Maybe that will show up whenever we finally break out of beta.

    Sad that Instagram can't update and complete the app, when Rudy cranks out tweaks and updates for 6tag all the time. They should have just hired him to be their official WP guy, but probably don't want to shame their in-house developers, because 6tag is better than any of their official apps for iOS and Android. :p

    I think that is part of my fear; Rudy is so good that most of us still use his app. If WP users never start using the official then will they pull it for lack of interest? Just a thought; not sure how they are gauging the success of the app. I just want to make sure that Instagram stays on WP.

    If they pulled their app with no solid grounds, it will not look pretty on their part - it will not sit well with Microsoft or Nokia as it is a key app (let alone us WP users). Certainly they can't pull it "due to lack of interest", people have been clamouring for an official app for a long time. Plus Nokia brought them to the fold, as I highly doubt they (instagram) decided to make the app because they wanted to.

    So as it always has been to date,
    WP wont get the resources from these companies unless it has the market share, which they deem as appropriate / the right time to put in resources. However its not like instagram doesn't have the resources....

    We need an update to official app, it's too outdated for now.

    a lot of people still vote 5 star on the app evaluation in the store, everybody should vote 1 star until their complete the app..

    The Instagram app sucks major sweaty balls, and should lead everyone to assume the developers do too.
