    maybe if we 'overflow' joe belfiore twitter he takes some position or say something, this is ridiculous, more 2 months and this beta will complete 1 year, is sad that we still haven't a decent Instagram or facebook, no signal for a official snapchat, and Vine app never received a update since was launched... I have WP since 2012 but unfortunately I will have to buy an android as my next device.. maybe if some day the mobile world start to look to WP as deserves, i will come back
    Why? If you like Windows phone more, just stick with it... Some third party apps are better anyway.

    6tag I believe is the best app for Instagram on any platform, wish it was on the iPhone, or Instagram bought the app.

    While I agree with you wholeheartedly, having "6Tag" doesn't solve the overall app perception problem of Windows Phone. A user buying a phone will ask someone "Does it have Instagram?" and the person will reply "Yea, a beta they put out a year ago that never got updated. The version of iPhone and Android is much much better". "6Tag" never enters the average person's consciousnesses when thinking about "Instagram".

    ​Something has to be done....

    It's infuriating to me that they think it's acceptable to release an app, slab a beta label on it and call it a day... As a brand, you'd think they'd want to at least provide an experience that is consistent across any platform. They treat Windows Phone like it was created in some guys basement and has 200 people using it... There are countries where Windows Phone is the #2 platform! C'mon!! This is insanity!!!
    The impression it gives me is "Alright they want one? There, take this and shut up! Leave us alone now!"

    That's been alot of developers attitude towards this platform, and it grows tiresome.

    I actually had a few people who had Windows Phones and have since broke them and are using old iPhone until they have money to but a new one. They all say the biggest thing they miss about Windows Phone are the apps and I was in shock. They each specifically mentioned Rudy's apps being far better than the officials. Just thought that was cool to hear!

    Well as such it is. But it's a little pathetic for Instagram that an unofficial app is better (and we're talking MILES better) that the official app. And, without blaming Rudy at all, I do wonder how his apps influence the decision making, if they do at all. Does Instagram think "Oh well they have a working app, they're using our services, so why spend money on developing one ourselves?"

    I think that's exactly what they are thinking. Everything is about money.

    But Rudy's app has been out long before Instagram. So why do build their own app at all if they are truly on that mindset?

    That's true. But maybe Microsoft pushed for them to release an app, getting tired of hearing that people wouldn't get a WP because Instagram wasn't on it and then no more updates because, hey, they have a working app already!

    That's all speculation of course. But the fact that they not only never update their app but also never answer ANYONE concerning the future of the app leaves space for interpretation and speculations.

    I mainly use the official IG app. It has the basic features and gets the job done. It had instant notifications, allows for uploading photos from phone, and I can like and comment.

    But I do use 6tag often too. It allows me to upload photos from OneDrive. But what makes it better than anything else is the "Like or Not" feature. I love that.

    Yeah same here. I'm not an Instagram power user. The only thing that annoys me with the official app is that Twitter can't be added anymore to share on Twitter. So I use 6tag when I want to publish a picture on Twitter.

    If you guys really wants to help...

    Protest on Instagram. Who wants to protest?

    Vote here: https://www.change.org/p/instagram-u...agramwpisalive

    Announced on 22 October 2013, reaches the store in November 2013, updated a few times, last updated in March 2014.
    About 6 months, and about 1 year in Beta.
    Protest with the hashtag #InstagramWPIsAlive on Twitter.
    https://twitter.com/instagram

    The Instagram team has no contact form, much less email.

    - RT and like tweets.
    - Make tweets in a natural way and not robotic. Comment on the subject.
    - It takes an official app, do not tell me that about 6tag.
    - Missing functions are numerous, so not worth being mentioned.

    I think the union will do with the strength.

    How many is "a lot"? Though, I do agree that everyone keeps saying that about 6tag, and that's definitely not a solution.

    I think Microsoft paid them to make the app. We'll never know for sure, but the fact that they made it and then abandoned it really says something.

    Instagram on iOS and Android are getting another update today.. Still nothing for Windows Phone.. Didn't Microsoft say that they are /working/ closely with Instagram? What the bloody hell is happening?

    I tweeted twice to them today:

    @instagram adds new features again and keeps giving a big finger with the caption "FU" to #WindowsPhone users. Thanks Instagram!

    "@Instagram makes discovery easier, adds caption editing". #WindowsPhone users are left with a basic barely functioning beta for a year now.
