Didn't we already see the "photon" release many years ago... Originally, Microsoft wanted to develop windows mobile alongside windows phone. To be fair to windows mobile, it was a corporate and enterprise standard os, and yes it didn't attract the regular users, but what it did, it did well. You had plenty of overlays available to make the interface nicer, and the core os was, and still is, more reliable than wp7 or 8. You're slating an interface because you're comparing it to something totally different, as i said, Microsoft were going to launch the two alongside each other. Most corps are either still with wm or have gone to ios/bb, wp hasn't set the corp world alight, so for all its success with consumers, the real money, the corps, hasn't exactly piled in...

if they had done that I would have gone Android for certain...
I'm looking forward to the innovation you guys bring Venetasoft. I personally have both Instagraph and Itsdagram on my phone. Itsdagram had the full featured client and experience....but one thing I do like about your app is that it is built right into the "share" and "edit" menu at the OS level. I really like that convenience. I hear @nas2lor is rebuilding Metrogram from ground up with Instagraph integrated. I am also looking forward to that since I actually really like the design of Metrogram. To all the devs....keep up the good work. It does not go unnoticed.

I am so glad I'm looking at my beautifully designed wp8 handset right now, words cannot start to describe it. Metro UI is by far the best thing that MS has come up with in the last decade IMHO.
Thanks heavens this has not made it into the real word, thanks to whoever chose Metro in favour of proposals like the one shown above!
damn ugly but I do like the 7 logo
daniel, you are awesome. im looking forward to see a 7.x version hopefully :))))
I too love the design of this app. I'll probably keep using it once he official app comes out just to stick it to Instagram for being assholes about the whole situation.
As a wp7.8 user, I think its time to move on. This is like holding on to the Xbox when there is an Xbox 360 now . The wp8 has been out for a while and Msft has to concentrate on that to challenge the high end phones. We just have to move on
Oh my gawd it's horrible!
Obviously I hope the 928 crowd is growing fast but can guarantee you it's predominantly the other WP8 variants driving this. New WP users would have no idea where to even find this app last Thursday when they got their phones on the day the app launched. The vast majority of the now 20k+ users definitely bought this with their own $1.49.
" Glad Microsoft went with Windows Phone as we know it today?"
I'm using Instagraph on my WP7, but will evaluate itsdagram too.
Yes it seems apparent to me now that FB (who owns Instagram) simply doesn't want to play with MS. it's a stategic business decision since Windows Phone is a clear threat to everyone in this segment (which FB wants to join with their own phone).
So FB will not create an instagram app until they absolutely must. With the success of Itsdagram and the continuing rise in market share for WP, they will probably soon be forced to create an app for Instagram and maybe even FB itself
I believe the galaxy note 2 has not only voice activated shutter, but you can say various commands that decide what kind of picture to take...
"Take Picture" - takes picture
"Say Cheese" - Wait's till eyes are on camera and possibly waits for smile
"Smile" - waits for indiv or group to show teeth
"Take video" - I think starts recording video
I'd love to say other things like "Macro," "Focus back" or "Focus Front" - "start multishot" ... that would be pimp... :D
Oh they fixing everything that I wanted on the next update NICE! That image above the name issue is annoying as hell.
I'm so happy the private profile option and accept followers and whatnot is coming! Great app!
Instagram doesn't charge for their apps.
Windows Phone PIMP :)
Too busy? Limited? Itsdagram is handled by ONE guy and Instagram is a BILLION dollar company owned by a MULTI-BILLION dollar company.
awesome. DG - keep up the good work. loving the community... feels like xda-dev in its htc winmob days...

Thank goodness for this rule.. People need to learn how to read again...
Well, not everyone wants a Samsung device; some are tied to their contracts and are unable to move to WP8 at this time, and many WP7.x devices are still fully functional and can utilize the majority of the apps currently in Marketplace.
While there are some choice apps not yet available for WP7.x users, it doesn't mean that those users should expend a few hundred dollars just to use a few WP8 apps.

Obviously it's not a matter of whether Instagram can get an official app out, it's that they have no interest in getting it out. Remember they do not charge for their app and they have to recoup their cost in another way.
If they were to release and app and charge for it they'd be slammed for it..
I appeared to be a joke to me. Kind of like an inside joke. I laughed as I thought he was directing to Rich and Jay. Lol
+1 for you having "SouthDallas" in your username. I'm from Dallas!
Even if the official app is released, I think I'm going to stick to Itsdagram.I like the UI much more than the other one.And from what I see that is happening with the Facebook app, Instagram will probably have the same design as the ones from iOS and Android.So...Daniel...I'm a devoted fan :) keep up the good work.Cheers!
Ha yeah I'm still trying to figure out if that house on your IG profile is YOUR House :-P Whoa. In a way, if so, it's that much better that you're *still* working so hard on this project.
Also fixed in 1.2!
Nah, it'll never happen. T-mob EOL'ed the phone when they realized that they bought the wrong variant that couldn't be firmware upgraded to LTE. The sooner they can kick this orphan out of the house, the better (for them).
I hope the Find Friends section is updated to show real names so I have some idea of who I'm about to follow.
It's actually pretty exciting to think that this major Verizon release will mean a statistically significant increase in Windows Phone market share :-)
Very nice, like the statistics you provided for us, keep up the good work Venetasoft!

read the article...12000 downloads "the first day". If he keeps that pace up, that's $500,000/month.
Courtney S says:
+920 I like the way you think!
Just a rumor. There is no reason why we'll get ANYTHING for this phone. Why, when they have newer phones they'd rather sell you?
Likewise Daniel, likewise....
Oh, there is apparently a lot of people with skeletons in the closet. :D
I hope this temple run will also work with my lumia 620 :(

Maybe you mean something else, but a count on how many photos there are in each tag is there / for me, at least.
Plzzzz masta, can we kiiilzzz them *hiss* :-)
My thoughts exactly.
I will get this app when the ad supported version is available. Nothing against the app or its developer, it's just that my interest in instagram is VERY small. I want the free one to check it out, test the whole service, and then purchase the full app if it's something I like.
What about Xbox news will wpcentral cover the story? O.O
Thanks for your reply, and for adding usernames in search!
As of from what I can see, the black background only comes when there are more than 20 comments.
Keep it up and let 4th and mayor be a inspiration, to be better then the official companies. You are making at least 12 000 people happy, that goes for something. Something Instagram have denied customers. I say you earned every penny from Itsdagram because your filling a need people have.
