    A new version of instagram has been released for the ios and Android i.e 6.0, with new photo editing features but on Windows phone it is still in beta version and no update has been rolled out since a long time. What's happening? , why the app development on windows pbhone so slow?
    Ps: I like the official version of this app on wp very much but please update it.

    It's owned by FB so its bound to rot for a while without any updates. FB ain't known for updates on Windows Phone.

    They don't give a damn about us. Similar to Spotify, Twitter, and Google.

    I'm hoping for a update this month with the major Skype and Facebook updates. Hopefully Instagram has a big 8.1 update in their plans for june

    And yet you still can't use it without a premium membership. How long did it take them to bring the Radio feature? :/

    I would forget about the official Instagram. 6Tag is so far ahead.

    This is very normal with windows phone platform. The WhatsApp got update after months android and ios got update. BBM is coming after around one year. The quality of apps is a big issue. Windows platform is not that big that developer put additional cost for developing it. Instagram is happy saying that we are on windows and so is Windows saying vise versa. The quality or user review hardly matter.

    6tag has had what was updated in Instagram for months on months, and is a much better app.

    6tag is indeed a much better app. The problem is that it's not an official app. Usually this doesn't bother me much, but after the incident with Instagram flagging up accounts using unofficial apps, I'm don't want to take the risk again.

    Who's to say Snapchat won't do it in the future? Or the next big app fad? I think that's what Gorki was getting at.

    Facebook developers think of Windows Phone as a crap!
    Don't get big expectations!

    Why is not an issue anymore? I know it's fine right now, but you don't know what Instagram will do in the future. They could update their service so that it breaks third party apps or worse, affect your posts or account's standing.

    Windows Phone is not their interests since the very beginning. If you want to use Windows Phone, prepare to see such treatments from the developers. Otherwise, iPhone or Android will be your best bets.

    If the official apps can use the updated APIs, so can 3rd party ones. If the 3rd party app is not updating, then is the developer's fault.

    The people at Instagram aren't going to spend development time on the WP app unless they see a lot of people using it. Lets face it, to them the amount of WP usage is small and insignificant compared to the usage they see happening with iOS and Android. You can hardly blame them for not dedicating more time towards WP.
