Of cause I first suggest that you buy Instagraph to help the developer.

Z10YkakPES says:

So I did, and now out of 3 pics I uploaded, only 1st one is mine, other 2 are not, completely random pics

lemonsteveo says:

Maybe the devs don't actually have some fancy way of uploading pics but rather a bunch of elves receiving uploaded pics with usernames/passwords and uploads them manually on androids.  They have to work 24/7 thus are overtired and mixing up the pics of users.

taymur says:

Actually im guessing this is exactly whats happening, but in this life time, elves are called BOTs.
oh mIRC BOTs i miss them :P

gtbuzz says:

+1. Really don't give two craps about Instragram, but I still bought the app nonetheless.
1) Support the dev
2) Try to show Instagram that they should stop ignoring Windows Phone
3) Hopefully more devs get the message (MLB, I'm looking at you)

taymur says:

Good guy WP owner :D

David Best says: its true there ARE some classy people on the interwebs 

big_slim750 says:

Also, all their other apps are free. I'm not sure if they were always like that, but I will be downloading them all.

theefman says:

Not that I use this service but are people supposed to carry a PC around with them and install another program just to post to instagram rather than just pay $2.50 or just not post at all?

Like I said, the guide is for people who don't want to pay for Instagraph (for whatever reasons), but want to post to Instagram.

engellion says:

This "work around" takes the "insta" out of "instagram" which kind of defeats the purpose. I think $2 is worth paying for "instagraph" to avoid the hassle.

slyjr2 says:

No it ain't

TechAbstract says:

I will support the developer instead.

NIST says:

Considering that there are backend expenses associated with the instagraph app to work correctly, a couple of bucks is very reasonable.

pawelf1 says:

i used that way but is sucks, because u need to go home on your pc to use it, and with instagraph you can use your phone...

Downloaded. I can say I've been waiting for instagram so im excited. As for the price, if these devs care that much about WP8, I have no problem giving them my $2

hysonmb says:

I don't care about Instagram at all, but, will buy this app just to support the platform. It makes no sense for any major developers to ignore us anymore.

Garghas says:

Dude, you will only be supporting android. They are using an android as server, dont u get it?
As far as Instagram is concerned your uploads come from an android phone..
Jesus you ppl...

rmichael75 says:

That is ok.. but now a void is filled in WP. we also have Insta......

mondokjm says:

If you read the last post about instagraph, the devs stated that they did not emulate an android or ios device and found a workaround that was within the TOS for instagram. Not sure where you're pulling this info from that support for instagraph is supporting android.

jjmorgan64 says:

I have no use for instagram, but bought the app for the sole purpose of supporting people who support the platform.
To say this is supporting android only makes absolutely no sense.

venetasoft says:

We use 100% Microsoft products only.
See iOS and Android devices as your slaves, they work for your Windows Phone ;)

xconomicron says:

Thank you for your support venetasoft! I will buy it when I move onto WP8 from WP7.x.

jsnod25 says:

Same here, have no use for instagram but I'm also using WP7.8 so I can't support till I get WP8, but I will.

akki20892 says:

now instagram will jealous, they think we could make better app then this one and they will make Instagram for WP.......LOL....!!!  i will buy this app for sure when i get NL920....!!!

AngryNil says:

Why would Instagram be jealous? Sorry, but Instagraph is a joke next to Instagram's official clients. (Don't shoot the messenger, you can see it for yourself or read the reviews.)

Invaderhim says:

Amen to that. Its not just an IOS and android world assholes!

birdman_38 says:

That's true, it isn't. But WP still gets a bunch of knockoffs.

tbonenga says:

Just know this is a trial. This will get shutdown one way or another by instagram. There's no way instagram is gonna let a 3rd party profit off their free app. I'm not knocking it at all. It sucks that instagram is snubbing W8. I just know a lot of people are gonna be upset in about a month when their shut down. Then again its only 2.50 so enjoy about a months worth of service.

ericjojo says:


jlynnm350z says:

Any body else love that show, or is it just me. Yo Angela. . .

lippidp says:

That show is tough to watch for any man with testicles. I bet Danza drinks himself to sleep every night for agreeing to play that role. Holy fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck!!!!!!! No amount of money would be worth it.

jlynnm350z says:

I know, I just wanted to see if anybody would get it. But Samantha grew up nice, a

ajua says:

Bought it. I'm charging my 8X while it install. I will take Instagraph for a spin later...
Hopefully, if we show support, the official client will come sooner.

paras chugh says:

i want snapchat

dalydose says:

Haha...there it is!! If they can Insta, Snap is the new COOKIES.

carlosrdd says:

I not still don't see what the big deal is... I rather have HBO GO, Flip Note, MLB At Bat, and the thousands of games to come on time not 4 months after isheep are bored of playing them....

RaRa85 says:

And don't forget about WatchESPN!

There's already an HBO GO app in the Windows Phone Store.
You just have to be in Romania to download it.

SleepyTheDon says:

WP users want it I'm sure they'll pay... Our great OS deserves the popular apps as well. OAD's better bring them or else our 3rd party community will!

OMG. This is amazing. Pretty sweet how they hacked it up. Where there's a will, there's a way. Hope they make lots of $$. Instagram needs to just embrace all mobile platforms already.

Garghas says:

Dude, they are only supporting android. They are using an android as server, dont u get it?
As far as Instagram is concerned your uploads come from an android phone..

They're using Azure as the server and TBH, it doesn't matter. This is (1) giving WP users an option to participate in one of the largest photo communities on the 'net (2) this isn't about tribal OS warfare, it's about sending a message to Instagram

Garghas says:

How will you send a message to Instagram? They don't know it's coming from Windows Phones... and im sure you know it

rodneyej says:

So, if I don't have an existing account then I can't use this??

You should really probably read our previous posts on this... ;)

SleepyTheDon says:

& I repeat "Mr. Rubino always had a way with words" DR is on my Qool List.

rodneyej says:

I read it!! Its just that I have ADD and my mind wandered into my third brain.. Ever since I turned 35, and started smokin LSD, my memory hasn't been as good.. Do you think some B12 vitamins would help?

Not yet, next update will allow creation of instagram accounts. If you want to use instagram now just borrow a buddies phone and create one and then log out of it.

Nik Rolls says:

Even though I knew this from previous posts, it's a bit misleading to show a screenshot of creating a new account in-app.

Well, Daniel did state that that picture is of the next Instagraph update

sholokov says:

I used Blue Stacks to create instagram account a few days ago. Try that.

Oscar Mejia says:

i would like to know the reason my comment from last night is now missing?

polychromenz says:

Wasting you time no one is thinking they are busy getting excited. I won't use instagram but want it so we shut up the moaners. Sadly you are right this will just boost android stats and hurt us more. Lets hope the fevs publish their own stats.

Etios says:

The dev is using Azure servers, no android emulation.

Tony Gorham says:

my understanding is that they run virtual android on those Azure servers. If this is true then Instragram will see this as Android traffic

Etios says:

They are NOT running virtual android, just spend 2 mins on this article by Daniel and clear your doubts:

jholso says:

The method of which they solved a problem that WP users gave them is phenomenal. Clearly Kevin understands hes from the BB world and with the launch of a new OS over there has the problem we do about large developers not supporting. So everyone should rejoice the fact that others are stepping in, and getting creative to solve problems. It does nothing but help the OS.

Etios says:

Garghas, Stop spreading lies, they are using Microsoft Azure, no android emulation.

jsnod25 says:

Thank you... MS doesn't need Android for anything, though they profit from it none the less LOL!

ricbon says:

yes they do i cant belive they want to be OSicist to an OS that is not ios/android

sholokov says:


KoukiFC3S says:

Please convince them to make a BB10 version. :)

rodneyej says:

Can't download! Says that item is no longer available!!! ???????

rodneyej says:

Working now!!

RaRa85 says:

I was just about to scream "Get outta there Rock!"lol But you got it.

chrisesdo says:

showing $1.99 then $2.49 when i click the link from my computer. still won't show up on my phone whether i click the link or search for it in the store. weird.

rodneyej says:

Its saying that its no longer available.. That was fast.

chrisesdo says:

looks like it's back on. i'm guessing due to high traffic? i just downloaded it.

Shantek says:

Some apps act a little funky when only just published showing not available in some regions. So just keep trying :)

hysonmb says:

I tried to buy it and got an error.
It jumped back to the buy page and shows the price as $1.99, but, still won't let me buy it.

I think it's an error that is being fixed...give it a short time and check again, I bought it myself and had no issues.

rodneyej says:

Something's going on.. Its all Google's fault! I got a error message saying that it's not available anymore..

RyanAMG says:

LOL we should always blame google.... Same but checked again and it worked. Also it only charged me $1.99

paras chugh says:

this would have won the app star contest

m4tthall says:

Downloaded, don't even use Instagram much but felt like these guys deserved some credit.

mdscj4 says:

How the heck do you make an account..

rodneyej says:

Right?? I can't figure it out.

mondokjm says:

That feature will come with a future update. For now, account creation must be done from an android or ios device.

Did you not read any of the other countless articles about this app? This version does not support account creation, next one will. For now just borrow a friends phone to create the account if you can't wait

Lobbie1978 says:

What if you only have cool friends? Meaning, friends with Windows Phones? :P

Then I guess you have to wait, although I don't suspect the wait will be too long since Daniel already has the next version where you can create an account in app.

hysonmb says:

If you're near a PC, download and install Blue Stacks, it's an Android VM. From there, you can create an account.

I don't use Instagram. If this was free, I'd download it to support the developer's work and show Instagram that they should come on over. However, I won't spend $2.50 on an app I don't want for a service I don't use, just to make a point that I'm not trying to make.

walter1832 says:

Right!....I think?

mikewp says:

But a point you'd be willing to make if the app was free. Lol... Never miss an opportunity to keep your mouth shut

I'm saying I'd help raise their download count if it was free, but spending money on a service I won't use is silly. It's my way of saying I appreciate their work, but it doesn't do anything for me.

DJCBS says:

So people should waste money on an App they don't need to go around a service they don't use just to show a company that doesn't want to bring their App to WP "who's boss"? This is the most pathetic thing I've ever heard.

If this App was free, people who don't give two sh*ts about Instagram would be willing to download it TO HELP all those who want to share pictures of their meals with filters on the web. BUT you can't expect us to PAY for something WE DON'T CARE NOR NEED just because "others" want bloody Instagram on their WP and are mad that Instagram doesn't want to bring the App to WP.

luimende says:

Of the last 50 posts from my friends on Instagram none are photos of food, and most don't even have filters anymore.  

getalex says:

You're missing the point luimende :) ...i also fail to see how this shows anyone (except the developer behind the app) who's boss.

Jonny8X says:

Do you need an existing account?

Yes. But the next version (which I already have) will allow account creation.

Thats great. Just wished they would focus on photo feeds (likes/comments) and profile view as the next big priority as opposed to Instagram account creation. But i guess its easy for me to say that given I already have one.

Right now I am using Instagraph to post, WPgram to view and Lomogram to apply some decent filters

dfmos says:

The Screenshots have a picture of the Account Creation feature..
So it's there and implemented.
We just have to hold tight and wait for the next build to be kicked out.

cruisezero says:

yes you need an existing account to login

Once instagram releases the official app, this will go by the wayside. For the time being, buy the app if you want it to support the developer..

ricbon says:

wont let me buy L920 ATT

I have purchased and logged in and we are good to go. The app looks very nice indeed. Very well done!

dkp23 says:

server crash!

Munkeyphyst says:

Shows up on my phone as $1.99

ColeHarris says:

Needs more/better filters, otherwise works as intended I suppose.

jkercado says:

People spend $5 on a coffee but can't spend $2 on an app that will be used every day and will get updated for free. Seriously?

Jnero20 says:

Honestly, the way I look at it is instead of drinking soda/pop at a restaurant just get a water! Save yourself around 2 dollars and put that towards an app!

walter1832 says:

But its some good coffee!

London Jr says:

f'n great coffee...

m4tthall says:

+1 I don't get some people

willied says:

Not everyone drinks coffee, but I get your point.

Residing says:

Lol!  Coffee I would consume (and enjoy), as well as any other edible consumable product.  This app?  I wouldn't.

uopjo6 says:

It's not about how much it costs. I would be glad to pay $2 for a good app. Even $5, but it's the comparison that pisses ppl off. WP is probably the only platform paying for a half-baked instagram replacement while others are enjoying it for free.
Sure we get to enjoy the WP experience and I'm glad I do but I'd be pissed if I bought my $5 coffee and then see a mofo flash his iPhone to the counter and get's his coffee for free.

chadwick611 says:

Bought. Nice app.

eduardopl says:

bought it for 1.99. we should use #wp8 and #instagraph  for all the pics uploaded with instagraph :P

Mister Gore says:

I will probably consider purchasing when they add the workaround to create a new account, until then it is pointless for me. I have to say though, I understand peoples hesitation to purchasing an app that is a knockoff of a free app. But more power to those who do.

acaruso says:

Downloaded and installed without any issued. Works great.

d_jones06 says:

So there isn't a home page where you can see other people's posts?

fluffcycle says:

You can either use or an app like Metrogram or WPGram

yashshah7197 says:

This should shut up the haters and whiners at least for a while.
Good job Venetasoft! :D
Keep up the good work! :)

T-rom09 says:

Hmm can't find it

SteggyDad says:

Since I don't have an Instagram account, can't use the app. However once the app supports user creation I'll purchase a copy just to support the developers.

Hector1van says:

Of u have pc can install bluestack, dl instagram and create one there

Dante X says:

Bought it. 30 pesos in Mexico.

ajua says:

$30? It was $40 pesos as soon as they published it :(
Sadly, I was charging my phone and was busy with some work. A few hours ago I tried to play with the app but I coudln't upload anything. It showed an error saying that the servers are being put on stand by while they add more units (whatever this is, but I guess it's more storage/bandwidth allocation).
Will try tomorrow morning to see if I can upload now.

brudolph1211 says:

Works great for me. Follow me brudolph

socialproof says:

Purchased and in the cue

RyanDaLyon says:

Now for a third party snap chat?

alockettjr says:

Anyone else getting an error during install?? C101a027???

same error here...anyone else???

fluffcycle says:

I got that earlier today on an app. Its just the store being weird. Give it an hour or two and try again.

wetworker says:

I just bought it. Support the platform or STFU. Personally I prefer Photoplay UI more.

glassran says:

+1 Photoplay UI is better but honestly Mobli is better than both Instagraph which i did support and it. It does a lot more (photos and video) and its free.

Island Dog says:

Bought it, showed $1.99. Seems to work, but double posting images.

Annnnd download finished! Thanks for the effort and bringing us instagram.

Hector1van says:

There is a tutorial in forums on how to create an account. PC and bluestacks....

migueli2 says:

Ok I was about to buy the app cause I've been waiting for long. But price must be wrong!
$2,49 isn't the same as 2,49€ as it shows on my market!!!
So I'm boy buying till they fix the value.
Price in euro should be something like 1,63€
Hope they fix it soon so I can buy.

dfmos says:

Price is €1.99 for me here in Ireland.

migueli2 says:

So there's no reason for showing me 2.49€
Thanks for info.

purevibz says:

I can't install it after I purchased

sqlchicken says:


luimende says:

Bought it but I hate that it crops my pics.missing the tops of heads of my pics.

erzhik says:

Instagram crops too.

But instagram lets you crop it yourself to choose what's seen.

luimende says:

Yeah, I can move my pic around on Instagram.  We need to stop saying everything on WP is perfect because nobody will do anything to improve it.  Stop fighting and start asking for things. 

gerrymad says:

You can adjust the crop location on instagraph. Play around with the zoom and you can move the picture around by touching at the edge of the picture. You can also move the cropping area around a bit. It takes a little getting used to how the editor works, but it does the trick.

luimende says:

No, see, you can crop the picture, but the picture that it brings in is already cropped, missing the top and bottom, then you can further crop that. but it is missing stuff before you are allowed to crop it.

MFV 920 says:

I have paid for the app. Thanks to the developers for bringing the app to WP8. Regards from Spain

expectafight says:

I'm suggesting we use the #2InstaWithLove hash tag for posts on instagram too

sqlchicken says:

I've been doing that to all my pics (and adding it previous ones). There's only about 2,000 #2instawithlove pics. Surely we can do better...

Shantek says: shows a much higher number of tweets..

expectafight says:

and thats for twitter not instagram

Shantek says:

Oh right, that 2000 number was for pics already on instagram with #2instawithlove?
If so, sorry my bad

expectafight says:

im checking now  but i think that was the number of pictures after the first 2 weeks on the actual 2instawithlove site

Flagz says:

Is it just me or does the photo editor degrade the image quality drastically?

RawrrSavior says:

Seems that way to me...

c0wb0ycliche says:

It only looks like it in the preview, after you apply it is full quality.

Visual360 says:

Bought, installed, and already posted!
Follow me @visual360

chadwick611 says:

great page just followed you! @__chadwick

migueli2 says:

I sense a fiasco!

biboyflip says:

Downloaded and uploaded my first instagraph photo!

Catlasers says:

Hm ... Keeps saying publishing error? Anyone else?

ttsoldier says:

Store errors are because of high demand

Macdaddy0 says:

Ive never used instagram before but since i want to help the developer i bought it :)

mhalpin13 says:

Isn't working for me either

Shantek says:

I'm the same, I'll buy when I can create an account. Nice work. And people seriously need to actually read articles and stop asking questions that have already been covered so many times! And for those saying they won't pay for a knockoff of a free app, its not a knock off - its a substitute until instagram hopefully come to their senses, and of course the dev should be rewarded for their efforts!

arterbizzle says:

We need a hash tag for instagraph uploads guys. It could be simple as #wm8 or just #instagraph. What do y'all think?

sqlchicken says:

Use #2instawithlove, already established tag

arterbizzle says:

That's for the 2instawithlove app. It needs to be different...

expectafight says:

thats on twitter though....not on instagram and its for the same cause

dalydose says:

What would #wm8 be for??

arterbizzle says:

#wp8 lol, my bad

raul_junior says:

I think just #2instawithlove is fine because it already has a high amount of posts (over 10000) and we can now expand to instagram

Only Windows Phone 8 :( I wish this site was more clear which version of Windows Phone they are reffering to, still a whole lot of us on 7.5-7.8

CPnextdoor says:

If you read the initial post it said 7.8 update just saying.

Etios says:

They are working on 7.5/7.8 and will release soon.

prowade says:

Don't have an account but will be buying to support :)

the92playboy says:

Same here. Supporting the early adopting devs is the best way to grow the platform.

sqlchicken says:

Suggest renaming to 'Eventuallygraph', queued up for awhile now.

totallagness says:

No love for WP 7.X ?

Etios says:

The developer is working on WP7.x version.

giggi85g says:

The best from Italy! This app was developed by italian venetasoft!

mhalpin13 says:

Downloads half way then i get an error message :s

GoProCraig says:

Is there no way to reposition a photo within the square box?

FrankEpr says:

Hope they fix that...

Sam Sabri says:

You two haven't played with Instagram before have you?

GoProCraig says:

Instagram allows the user to zoom completely out to the edges of a high resolution photo and then reposition it within the square. Instagraph automatically crops it for you and then you're stuck in the center of your photo. I'm sure they will make this experience better in a future release.

gerrymad says:

You can reposition in instagraph. While cropping try touch and moving the picture at the edge. You'll find you can move it around inside the cropping area. It takes a little practice to get it down, but once you do it works well.

alikokce says:

Got it. Can't wait for future updates.

Sugarnotch says:

When do we start tagging pictures with #wp8invasion? I think I just did :)

izzykahn says:

So might the actual Instagram release in May like it was rumored? This is a start, but it doesn't have enough features in the app.

zishbu says:

I don't get instagram but glad we are another step closer to this saga being over. In other news, you kids get off my lawn! Thanks :)

Karlo Sabay says:

Is synching with Facebook also available when you upload photo? If not, this is deal breaker

brudolph1211 says:

Use for that

If yu hit settings on the app option to go to the Instagram web page shows up and there yu can see the instagram website for those dat keep compaining....2.50$ is chump change fr me since i use istagram daily n am tired of having to take pics on an android and use wifi or pass it to my ipad o ipd n use i use instagraph n WPgram n im happyyy

braydee89 says:

Uploaded someone elses photo to my account. Seems to have confused users.

ratsta says:

Just done the same to me... Oh dear...

dermotf says:

Same here. This is not good ata ll.

sqlchicken says:

Best part is I posted a picture of myself doing a face palm so its appropriate it showed up in someone else's stream.

Lol, had a feeling this app was going to be a clusterfuck! Like Tom Warren said on twitter, I wouldn't trust these guys with my login info!

biboyflip says:

Its been 15min now and my photo is still on queue. It says only 1 min estimated..

brudolph1211 says:

My first two uploaded fine. Now mine are no longer uploading.

tone84 says:

Photoplay is better.. People taking actual photography pics

glassran says:

-1 for 'photography pics' lol

VanillaFrog says:

+1 for '-1 for 'photography pics''

xkarlmarkx says:

Is the photo also automatically posted in Facebook or Twitter?

tone84 says:

I'm not paying for something that everyone else gets free and doesn't work!... PHOTOPLAY!

Kadcidxa says:

This App Is Not Available for your phone. Lame.

theroyboy44 says:

Did you at least read the other articles which say which version of windows phone its available for and how they are also working on the older ones too...........guess you didn't.......

rockycpa says:

Hmmm, a few little bugs.  My first picture eventually got up to the site.  The second and third never made it but someone else's picture appeared on my page.

alockettjr says:

It doesn't post the correct pictures!

rockycpa says:

Also limits to 3 pictures per day.  i paid 1.99

FrankEpr says:

The First Picture uploaded pretty fast...the second pic wasn't even mine! Did that happened to any of you?

rockycpa says:

Same exact thing happened to me.  You would have gotten a red flower picture?  If so can I have it back?

FrankEpr says:

Haha! A 90s yellow mustang!

eduardopl says:

+1 XD and the third one is this old car

FrankEpr says:

That's the

Spicymikey says:

 People are reporting criss crossing of photos.  I just bought it to give it a try and uploaded a photo about 15 minutes ago.  Still "queued" for upload.  Nothing happening and it's not on instagram. 
Hopefully things will improve but right now it seems to be crashing badly

metcho6 says:

Posted a picture of food with the caption "yum". Got a picture uploaded of someone's red mustang lol I think they have some wrinkles to work out

That seems to be happening to a lot of us. Maybe we should all say what we posted and what we had show up on our feed instead and find out who got whose phone. Could be a fun game.

dkp23 says:

i know the app just released, but seems the app is going through issues like the first 3rd party pinterest apps that was not functional. 

MadOx75 says:

Well, I queued a pic, and its been in queue for at least 15 mins, saying 1 min estimated. Sounds like their servers are getting slammed. 

1101x10 says:

Seems like they should of had a public beta rather than a paid one.

artista06 says:

Yeah that happen to I post up a shoes of mine it took a long ass time then when check it a puppies that wasn't off FAIL.....UNINSTALL!!!!
