    With Instagram finally being announced, along with Vine, I'm curious as to who's going to stop using their third party alternatives. Anyone out there going to make the switch once the officials arrive?

    If they are good, then probably.

    I judge apps by the following criteria:
    Quality/Usability
    Necessity
    Cost
    It doesn't make a diff who developed it.

    Unless somehow the Official Instagram does things 6tag doesn't, and/or they force 6tag to stop working, I won't change. 6tag is just too good, and Rudy deserves the support for his efforts.

    First, just let me say that I am not an Instagram user. I created an account so that I should show Instance and 6Tag to an Android-using coworker. My thoughts on the subject, though, are that people are probably happy with the apps they have, and while Instagram is yet to come, my guess is that the guys who've created these great apps will keep them supported better than Instagram ever will, so the best bet is to keep supporting them. The official Instagram app, though, will be a draw to WP noobs, those who wouldn't put forth the effort to find the third-party apps.

    Even without being an Instagram user, I appreciate the effort that these guys put forth to fill the gap. I've done the same thing, but to a far lesser extent. I'm a nothing programmer compared to them. But I'll do what I can, and keep learning...

    Compare my app PlusPoints to the Weight Watchers app Points Plus Calculator. Feel free to give it a good review, too!

    I have a feeling that when it does come out, they'll kill whatever method 6tag et al were using to connect to Instagram.

    6sec is a better Vine client than the official iOS app, so I won't be switching to an official Vine app any time soon.

    Remember that uploading through a client, makes ur hashtags not visible to other, am I right? And our accounts as labeled or something, So an official app will be better, in addition, the dev. Made good money, work on things now, we trust ur products. Think of it as marketing, everybody knows Rudy now.

    I don't use Instagram but I downloaded and now regularly use 6tag. I think it's important for us to still support third party apps because they're a VERY crucial component in making sure we achieve the ultimate goal of having a comparable user base to that of Android's/iOS'.

    Like I said, I don't use Instagram (and therefore by extension, 6Tag), but I thought I'd read that this was fixed? No?

    I'll probably use both 6Tag and Instagram. As for Instance, right now it feels lacking and the fact that it doesn't have the original filters as put me off since day one.

    It is supposedly fixed on 6tag and the "officially" licensed stuff like Oggl. I think Instance v2 is supposed to have it fixed as well, but it still isn't out.

    First I have to try the new apps. But my thoughts now; I'll probably start using the new Vine, but the 6tag is just too god!

    The thing that bugs me is the lack of willingness of 1st parties to contract the best 3rd party to make their app. I mean why force your internal development staff to do this when you have enthusiastic developers who would like to make some money AND make a good app. LinkedIn did this...I think foursquare did too, then they took over the code and managed it internally.
