Itsdagram for Windows Phone 8 Instagram

Itsdagram, the first fully featured Instagram client for Windows Phone 8, is now available!

Instagram, unofficially, has finally come to Windows Phone 8

It’s been a while in the making, but Itsdagram, a fully functional Instagram client, is now ready to be purchased (with a free trial, of course).

The app goes for $1.49 and is currently for Windows Phone 8 only (Windows Phone 7.x will come later). A free, ad supported version is due later next week but for now, you can try out and use version 1.1 of Itsdagram, which will allow you to upload photos directly to Instagram as well as create an account and view your friends’ photos.

Itsdagram Screens

From the app description:

"The only fully featured Instagram client on the market.  Register, upload, comment, like, follow, find your facebook friends;  All from Itsdagram!

What would an Instagram app be without filters!?  Itsdagram filters can be updated daily without the need to update the app.  You will never know when you've got a brand new filter waiting for you!"

  • Double tap to like
  • Tap and hold to swap between Timeline view and Grid view.
  • See photos you've liked and have been tagged in on your profile page
  • Change your profile picture and password there too!
  • Pin your favorite hashtags and users to your homescreen to keep track of them.
  • Free Trial will allow users that already have an account to upload 1 image to test.  All other features are completely enabled.  Commenting, Liking, Following, etc...
  • Registering a new account with Instagram requires the full version of Itsdagram.

We’ve been very happy with Daniel Gary’s progress on this project over the last few weeks and we think you’d be silly to not at least give it a go. Let us know in comments what you think!

Update: There’s a problem with some European cultures that use commas instead of decimals (ie $1,49 instead of $1.49).  It will be fixed in an update early next week.

Download Itsdagram for Windows Phone 8 here in the Store.

Already downloading...

carlosrdd says:

Anyone know how to block someone from following you or delete them? Also how do you make your profile or page private? App is amazing and super fast great job to the developer!

em1ke says:

Same question..

yeah! And how to accept people's friend requests... you can even do that on WPGram

The Dane says:

Looking great...
However it crashes everytime I try to upload a picture to the site :( (which makes it pretty much useless).
Been reading reviews and it seems most people cant upload pictures. What do you guys say?

JCastillo1 says:

Idk which country you downloaded the app in or if it makes a difference in the app's functionality, but I've been able to create an account and upload quite a few photos without a single crash so far here in the US.

That's a bug.

The workaround is to set the "Regional format" to United States (English)

Jazmac says:

Don't walk, RUN to get his app.  Its pure awesome sauce.

Agreed, even before this update I loved the look. Now it's amazing!

Jazmac says:

I can't believe I actually like these filters. Nice.

Nejcooo says:

what if you dont use instathing? then you dont need it i guess...

mjfadaway says:

This is the official app in disguise. It feels so authentic. My life is now complete lol

mmoses1978 says:

Did you say " awesome sauce " lol

tallgeese says:

I'm having a Beavis and Butthead moment...LOL!!!

You said awesome sauce!!!


Jazmac says:

THAT'S WHERE IT COMES FROM. I knew I heard that somewhere before. It was hiding in my subconscious for a minute.  lol.

yellowbeer says:

I will give it a try. 

MDak280 says:

Yes, finally! Downloading.

MDak280 says:

Works great, a few bugs but nothing bad! I love it.

MacDaMachine says:

Yup, some bugs here and there. But it gets the job done, and much better than instagraph or metrogram

erzhik says:

Downloaded and the app is pure magnificence. Looks miles better than original instagram on iOS.

driver_king says:

Everyone who has been tweeting with the #2InstaWithLove needs to tweet this and let others know Itsdagram is here for them TODAY.

williog says:

Lets watch and see how good it is

ZuNuKoo says:

Same day instagraph gets an update.. Nice.

ThaChaosKing says:

You Are a good CODER Daniel Rubino :D

buggyglint says:

Yea, thanks Dan & Dan.

z8er says:

Pretty awesome! Filters suck, but the app is FAST!

danielgary says:

Good news, filters can be updated anytime I choose.  They don't have to go through the store to get approved.  I could create one called z8er, and it would show up on your app next time you launched it.  So expect better filters in the future.

borasar says:

good work man! thanks for doing this!

fadelakin says:

You should ask the guys who made Lomogram if they can help you with filters or if you can put some of their filters in Itsdagram.

dreonedon says:

When is the free version with adds Daniel

chrisesdo says:

Any plans on adding the tag function when uploading photos?

z8er says:

Awesome! I can't wait for the z8er filter!

benners76 says:

Awesome job Daniel! It's beautiful!!!

iyae says:

I can give you the algorithms for some of mine from my windows 8 app if you want. I've got some neat ones. Tweet me if your interested @iyae. More than happy to help.

Bruno H says:

Really nice app, but quite buggy. I have huge problems adding more than three friends!
Looking forward to bug fixes so the app works as good as it looks!
Big plus for the live tiles :-)

Shifla says:

Please redesign your app tile logo. From the home screen the app seems like a crappy app. But inside the appearance is much better than IOS and android official app. Good job by the way.

AlexanderPD says:

gratz for your app.. but on my lumia 720 it just closes when i try to upload an image! :(
i choose a photo, crop it, it correctly fade out to black moving the cropped pic to the bottom.. aaandd i'm on the homescreen :(

Jazmac says:

Filters don't suck at all.  I'm surprised of how these improve my pictures. Instagram filters was the one thing I didn't respect about the app itself.  Pictures I've seen on Facebook look like flat garbage to me. These look pretty good.  Only thing, when you add the new filters, take the same kind of care selecting the new ones as you did these.  These are nice an will get some use. Props Dan.

iyae says:

Dude. The last 5 filters Suck balls. Still love the app though. He just needs a few more quality filters.

Jazmac says:

Sucks balls? What are you?  16  lol. I don't think they are that bad at all son. But as Dan said, he'll be able to drop some new ones in easily without need of the store. He probably has this in the pipeline so its just a matter of time.

Rishicash says:

Maybe he just likes sucking balls Jazmac! To each his own, eh?

naullsy says:

Cant register a account on my lumia 920 in the uk. Just says creating account then nothing.

DJCBS says:

And now that someone created a full Instagram App, Instagram can release theirs. Just to piss people off.

stevethenerd says:

As long as they don't pull a google ;)

david90531 says:

AWESOME just posted my first picture with WP with this. Look forward to the free version~

aerosmillie says:

Got it, bought it :)

And I've broken my Lumia today :( ! The screen broke! Shit...  Now I'll get an iPhone!

carlosrdd says:

Go away isheep troll!!!

Anyway... I'll fix... :p 

mr toes says:

Hahahaha . . . what?

I live in Brazil, it is expensive to fix, but I called in and authorized nokia and the repair was pretty cheap ... I'll fix it instead of buying a new iPhone.

chrisesdo says:

WOW, JUST WOW. Cleanest Instagram app on any platform! I just dislike the name. Logo / Tile is nice though.

lpforthewin says:

The name is because his daughter can't say instagram properly rather than because he's trying to sound cool or whatever, if that helps :)

Lots of love to the dev!

big_slim750 says:

So far so good! danielgary, you're the man sir!

mjfadaway says:

This ones gonna be a W.

izzykahn says:

Wow! I guess we'll never get the official one anytime soon. Oh well, I guess. Btw, I don't like Itsdagram's tile. Lol

Amazinggggg app!!!!! Loves it!

HELL YEA!!!!!! #AWESOMENESSACHIEVED I had purchased the beta and now I'm updating to the latest version.....#WindowsPhone 4 the win!!!! 

drelewis says:

find friends is not working for me on phone or fb

Daniel Gary, please is in your plans add Blur and Brightness and Contrast options?? We only just need these now to be a complete experience! :)
Just to record, I already bought your app.

Daniel, you've probably heard all of what needs to be said about this app, just wanted to say THANK YOU :) and really thank you for your efforts...

erzhik says:

Instagram can take their official app and shove it. This is miles better looking.

Nickkk101 says:

But what about Insta.. oh never mind.. ;)

RussellMb says:

+520...hell yeah

Omg awesome, I'll download it now

en0x#AC says:

I get black background on comments and i cannot read any on itsdagram :( and the text is also black

big_slim750 says:

That happened to me as well. It finally cleared up somehow. I think after I went to a few different pics with comments. Nothing solid.

I likes it :) love it

Use that $25 credit from getting your 928 towards this. Support this dev's hard work .

I just bought it. I'm not a huge Instagram user but this developer definitely deserves support. Great job.

joeynox says:

Runs well, looks great, just needs the image tools instagram has. The blurring hdr and framing. Great work

Verkunder says:

What's this about unlocking more filters?

It says that it has live tile support, but for now it's stationary, nothing changed for now. Anyone having a different experience?

It's for notifications, not latest images or anything

Fair enough! That could be something to consider in future updates. The app is pretty good and solid, totally worth the buy.

gamenlegend says:

Daniel Gary, 
I love the app and the way you've designed it but there's one thing that would be nice.  Can you implement the ability to zoom out of a photo when framing? Thanks

dreonedon says:

When is the free version with adds I forgot my wallet password so if reset my phone I will lose all my apps Lumia 920. Please help

Jrexxx says:

Next week. At earliest monday.

Jrexxx says:

You're welcome :) Follow the dev on twitter if you want to stay up to date.  @danielgary

stevethenerd says:

when you login to and look at your purchase history, you can push all your apps to your phone.

Mocah says:

All my instagram buddies will FEEL the wrath of my Creative Studio edits! Bought. Downloading. Please don't get pulled from the store.

Jrexxx says:

This, ladies and gents, is how you developpe an app! Fassst, fluid, responsive, and well designed. Hats off to the dev!

joe_easton says:

This is a great app and has given us access to instagram; a huge thanks is due!  The app is fast and easy to use.  I am having some trouble with the "find friends" feature but I will reboot and try again.  No big deal there.  I find it hard to believe that an official app could be better than this.  Someone needs to hire this guy and put him to work making apps for WP!

dubnukem says:

Cashes on my 8x after selecting a photo :(

Ramonis7 says:

The same on both my Lumias 920 and 720. :(

jnbnb says:

me too (lumia 920)

tulf says:

Ditto. L920

aakyel says:

me too (Lumia 920)

MarkCwee says:

+1 & no filters...just to watch, like and comment...crap

The Dane says:

same here L920 :(

desosav says:

same here on lumia 920

Stravincy says:

No offense, but I don't get the hype for this. I've never used Instagram though, maybe that's why I don't understand this hype.

So tell me, what's so great about this? Why should I buy this app?

Jrexxx says:

If you're folowing the right people, Instagram is pretty neat as to the photos that you get to see. The thing that I like about it is that it's focused on photos. Nothing more, nothing less.

dalydose says:

That's how I use Fhotoroom and Flickr. My biggest problem with Instagram is that I hate supporting a company that goes out of its way to exclude me.

Jrexxx says:

Good point :) However, I'm stuck in a similar situation to Wahtsapp: I don't particularly enjoy the service in comparison to similar services, but I don't have a choice since all of my friends are using it...

dalydose says:

At least WhatsApp isn't excluding Windows Phone, so you don't have to feel dirty about using it. ha ha ha :)
The "communication" apps are a problem for me.  I have Skype, WhatsApp, Viber and I deleted KiK as soon as they said "we have no plans for Windows Phone 8"...which was AFTER they posted some stats about how having a Windows Phone app, increased their userbase on all of their platforms.  Now, they're dead to me!


Residing says:

Well, there is a 'Try' option.  Give it a 'try' then decide if you want to buy it.

Jean80 says:

If you have never used it, why comment about not understanding it? If its about shoddy pictures, then you are following the wrong people. Like twitter, it's about curating your own experience.

NickEspy says:

Great work, bought it :)

Capsloc says:

Bought it! Just to support, haven't even run the app :P

89caps says:

Likewise. Setting a great example.

i just cant create an account on the app, can someone help me, i want to make an accounf but when i click that enter nothing happens

When i pressed back Button and went back TO app, it was allready created, So no problems anymore, awesome app

Bought it, works great. 
However, I've had an issue with Facebook linking -- the app correctly redirects me to FB to authenticate, then I can assign permissions to Instagram... but after choosing whether or not to authorize Instagram to post on behalf of me I get sent to a white screen, and the permission never makes its way back to the app.

Jrexxx says:

Had this first time I tried. Second time worked for me. Give it another try maybe?

Looks like it worked once I opted not to try to remember the device through login notifications.

Just downloaded the app. Loving it. Now I can sale my Nexus 4 since I don't need it anymore.

tim3804 says:

I thought you could try it for free. Tried to register and says I have to purchase to register. Don't know if I want it without trying it first

deloa84 says:

Come on... Spare the dev a buck 50 for his efforts...

sumton says:

good job Daniel Gary

Can Babal says:

Crashed when trying to upload photo

aakyel says:

me tooo (Lumia 920)

dalydose says:

I'm just in an never ending "Uploading..." cycle. (Lumia 920)

killakiloz says:

Awesome app! I salute the devs!

stevethenerd says:

:( if you don't buy you can't register

deloa84 says:

Just buy it man... Its a buck 50. That's not going to put a big dent in your budget, is it now? ;P

stevethenerd says:

Its ok I already did, just thought I'd update for others

bilzkh says:

Call it MXGRAM ... but awesome app.

wetworker says:

I bought it but I prefer WPGRAM UI over this. somthing about the blue bars at the top and bottom,of the UI.

Jf.Vigor says:

Yeah reminds me of the iPhone for some reason. I prefer wpgram UI but this really is a stellar app.

TJWINS says:

WPGram looks like crap compared to Itsdagram! This is one of the most beautiful apps in the store. The blue is what makes it feel authentic. I wouldn't want it any other color. This UI smokes WPGrams UI IMO.

HM02 says:

Yes, Itsdagram is definitely more appealing and faster than WPGram. Just not as fully-featured as WPGram. (yet)

Baryex86 says:

Not a fan of Instagram, but I will buy it to support the devs.

stevethenerd says:

He's done a good job!

ricbon says:

all i hear in my head is Jeff Goldblum in Jurassic Park, "life finds a way"

walter1832 says:

"Yeah but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could they didn't stop to think if they should."

I cannot see the comments on the pictures. They are blacked out. I've had the issue since beta.

TweetNiBerto says:

hope they release wp7 very soon. hopefully next week 

aerosmillie says:

Bought it. Used it. Love it. Looking forward to more filters and possibly a better looking live tile/logo

Crash's on my Windows Phone 8S after i upload a Picture

jnbnb says:

the same with my lumia 920!

Can Babal says:

8x same problem

Artur Linck says:

Me too! Here is with my Lumia 820

dkp23 says:

anybody else can not stalk who my followers are following?  need to get my stalking on. 

ha, i was tryin to do some stalking too and couldnt :(

rubenbest says:

Great i hope instagram just supports you and not update the apis and what not. Maybe they will let you be the official app

rubenbest says:

Btw follow me guys _rubenbest

nizzon says:

Instant buy! Its awesome!

jnbnb says:

I have bought the app and when I want to upload a photo the app crashes! :( lumia 920

RaphaelChaia says:

Same thing here. App keeps crashing.

chadwick611 says:

Very nice works great on my L920

blnwp says:

Hey @danielgary, that's a great effort!!
One question: I understand that the app uses undocumented API to publish to Instagram. Can Instagram block api requests coming from your application and render the app not working?
Just curious. I'm not even an Instagram user but paid the 1.99$ for your effort and it's totally worth it.

afgzee says:

find friends doesnt work for me, clicking pictures loads a different picture, clicking someones profile loads another profile, overall quite buggy.

Pressing back takes me to the login page. It would be better if it exited the app instead.

RichDunbar says:

It will after your first launch and exit.

joeynox says:

So this means 2instawithlove is dead?

afgzee says:

no because this is not an official insta client. instagram could block this possibly.

dalydose says:

I guess I need to try it because I don't want to be "silly". :)

I wonder if I can out hipster the hipsters and only post ironically. Hmmm...

C 1 says:

Great so far . I was able to connect my Facebook but when trying to connect twitter. It just crashes.

chadwick611 says:

Anyone have a issue finding Facebook friends with the app?

deloa84 says:

Same here. Not sure what it is. It just loads and loads. Other than that you can see alot of effort went into the app. Hopefully this is resolved soon...

nizzon says:

Restart the app after logging in and it works great.

iGeorge23 says:

Just got the app! FREAKING SEXY AS HELL! But why do the pictures come in a little blurry. It's like they are not as clear as they should be. Like the resolution isn't right? Anyone else notice this?

danielgary says:

it's a 1.0 problem.  Should be fixed next week.  Sorry for that :)

francesco87 says:

How can I fix the crash when uploading a photo? Tried to remove and install again but the problem is still there.

Lobbie1978 says:

I'm sorry, but its not release worthy yet. It crashes everytime I try to add a picture. Its fast, yes, but very unstable. Needs some work but I love the fact a full client is here! :)

C4llian says:

Amazing app !

inferno434 says:

Dan -- thanks for the efforts and to bring this full featured app to the WP masses.  I don't currently use instagram, but I bought the app to say THANKS and to help support the developers developers developers!

Looks great but im having a problem. I can search for people and find them, but when I try to follow them it doesn't work. I can't see their photos either.

nblew says:

Yeah me too. 2 people started following me, and I can see their pictures just fine (although can't see who they're following or who's following them). Pretty much renders the app useless for now... can't upload pictures if I have no one to upload them to.

Yeah, what phone are you using? I'm using an HTC 8X from Tmobile.

DaddyLikey says:

It's probably because their profile is set to private. Itsdagram doesn't have the option to toggle your own privacy settings. Hopefully that comes in the next update.

walter1832 says:

Which celebs are good to follow on insta?

vivlamac says:

HTC Mozart on 7.8 = not getting another Windows Phone. Really well done on the app but im tired of waiting ages for any good apps to be released on the Windows Phone

People like you will never be satisfied, don't let the door hit you...

vivlamac says:

No I will never be satisfied if my phone that is supposed to be a contender with android and apple falls behind by about a year. I'm happy for the dev that they have finally got this going. But its not really just instagram, its all the stuff we are missing out on. By the time that draw something app was out on Windows, nobody was bloody using it. I like to keep up with the times, but I can't with this phone.

dalydose says:

"Falls behind"?  Nope, you'll never be satisfied because your definition of "behind the times" means that we don't get fad apps when they first come out.  You've got iEnvy and you should just go...don't bother posting about it, just leave.

While you're worried about being "up with the times" make sure you have REAL innovation like best-in-class camera with OIS, built-in wirless charging, NFC, offline GPS navigation, FREE music streaming.  Are those things not "up with the times" for you?  iPhone is WAY behind Nokia in these areas and only SOME Androids have a couple of these things.  So, it's not really about being "behind the times", it's your iEnvy over a couple of apps that as you admit, won't matter in a few months.  I'll be taking AMAZING pictures for the life of my phone.


@vivlamac I actually agree with you on this one but I'm sticking with my 920 a little longer to see if we can catch up any!

I hate to say this, but in this technological era, you'll always be behind "the curve". The "Next Big Thing" is always around the corner, close enough to see, but never close enough to touch until....the day comes you can touch it, and it feels good, and you are ecstatic! look up....and what do you see................"THE NEXT BIGGER THING". And now you want it, but.....but my friend, you can't touch it yet, only for your viewing eyes.......

titoyees says:

Can you wait a week more? Or just download Winstagram, its work on wp7.8 and i am using because my phones is a samsung focus

iyae says:

We ain't buying what you are selling. Winstagram is amateur. Now leave.

titoyees says:

I am not selling anything. Nobodys answer to 7.8users about when they will support us. So, if i want upload to instagram now my only option is Winstagram. Ugly, maybe, but works for us.

benners76 says:

Mozart is 2+ yrs old... Somewhere a Lumia is waiting for you to upgrade!

vlribeiro says:

App crashes when cropping photo on my Lumia 920. :(

Thank you for your hard work Mr. Gary, I look forward to what the future has to offer.

nastybone says:

Cant connect it with Twitter wtf? Anyone with same issue?

It won't find my friends, even though I'm connected with Facebook and Twitter. :(

CANNOT wait to get out of work to buy this! Never used Instagram before, even though I had an account, but now I most definitely will!

posting a comment on popular photo can be a little painful having to scroll all the way to the buttom. next update. great job. awesome app.

damo579 says:

This app rocks great work Daniel gray.

Now the question is... this, or Instagraph? Or wait some more for the official? Comment.

Micah Dawson says:

I actually have both on my phone and I have two acconts for instagram so i'd be utilizing them both.
If you need the full features of Instagram, then Itsdagram would be the most likely choice for you however if you strictly need to upload a photo, Itsdagraph is perfect as well :D

MCD#WP says:

Can't seem to add all my "Phone Friends" for some reason.
