Instgraph + Metrogram
79

Instagraph and Metrogram are becoming one. Here’s a tease.

Instagram is here for Windows Phone, unofficially at least now that Itsdagram is in the Store. But if there’s one thing we like, it's competition. And soon we’ll see another app in the Store that will allow you to upload, view, comment and more to Instagram. We’ve already told you that Instagraph and Metrogram have plans to join forces. Here’s your first sneak peak.

The developers have shared some screenshots and information about what’s coming next with the project. These are the next updates for Instagraph + Metrogram for the devs.

  • Integrating Metrogram into the app (see screenshots above)
  • Instagram account creation
  • Other goodies

The team highlights that their approach to uploading to Instagram doesn’t use any private APIs and will still find a way to provide 100% Instagram functionality in their app. They plan on doing this through a mix of public APIs and server-side push magic.

Are you excited for this combination, guys? Or has Itsdagram sated your thirst for Instragram clients?

MrVol84 says:

I feel as though I don't need anything other than itsdagram any more. Ita that good!

Mister Gore says:

It really is, one of the finest apps on the platform.

Exactly. They kinda beat metrogram+instagraph to the punch.

It's a good alternative just in case Instagram flags Itsdagram down. Good job guys!

Miistercoool says:

I don't agree, it's real buggy for me, keeps closing on me but like a lot, I have a Nokia 820 on AT&T...anybody else having problems with it? And there's no setting to make your account private...that I think is important and so anybody can just start following people that great an account thru itsdagram...idk I hope this one is better!

Jazmac says:

Nope. I did have it close on me while tapping a filter once. Other than that, its been good. It hasn't closed on me since.

PipoDj says:

Competition... What would our instagram-hungry folks be without you! It's great to see developers becoming creative in the name of delivering the better alternative than the other.

edjr07 says:

I love it choices and variety this is beautiful.

Sean Burns1 says:

I brought the app but Itsdagram could do with a few more filters

ricbon says:

this just makes me wonder when MS is going to get a cease and desist letter from burbn inc.

Kieta says:

So $1.49 + free means it'll cost .75.

aaa6112 says:

1.49 + 0 = 0.75? yes, that sounds about right. :-P

morpheus1982 says:

Its an average of the two prices...lol

dudedud says:

I like itsdagrams filters better. Also I find the app faster than metrogram and instagraph

twelvetudors says:

Can we just get the free official Instagram already?

mjfadaway says:

It came out today. Code name itsdagram.

unreal_rik says:

Excellent reply. I'm also going to start telling people that the official app is codenamed on wp. Maybe that will stop them from whining.

twelvetudors says:

Not free, not official, not good enough.

t3chnick says:

Fuckin whiner, get an iPhone then and piss off

twelvetudors says:

Why would I want an iPhone? And wanting an official app makes me a whiner? Dude, I'm on Windows 7.8! I'll never get it anyway! But guess what, official apps are a lot less likely to break than third party ones, and they're free. So no, I'm not going to "piss off" thanks.

Zulfigar says:

You're welcome?

Gomez9 says:

You should, if ur just after FREE apps, go join Android or Iphone

Gomez9 says:

Great RESPONSE

Jean80 says:

Not free maybe, but having used the iOS and Android version, I can say it is better than the official Instagram app. Filters are awful, but I always edit with a separate image app anyway.

rubenbest says:

This will be good if isdagram goes down tho

alikokce says:

I thought about this short cut idea looong time ago but developers didn't till now lolol

apocacrux says:

What shortcut idea? Melding two applications into one is not really a shortcut. Making one app with all the features right away is a shortcut.

As long as competition helps the user I'm all for it!

chadwick611 says:

I like choice and will definitely use both

NickEspy says:

I bought both of them already lol

ZuNuKoo says:

Same. But good to support both developers.

fiddlebenton says:

I already made my choice. Deleted Metrogram & Instagraph as soon as Isdagram was made available.

NokFromApp says:

I used itsdagram to upload my first picture ever on instagram and it is awesome. I tried it and then bought it immediately albeit I think that once instagram is out, they will ask for this app to be taken down.
I follow Windows Phone, Nokia and Nokia US on twitter. Almost always when a high profile app is out, official or unofficial, they tweet about it to spread the message. I am watching if they tweet about itsdagram. If not, it may be because the official instagram client may be coming out soon.

mjfadaway says:

I feel obligated to support Metrogram and Instagraph cuz they were first to the punch, but Itsdagram is more than meeting my expectations right now.

titoyees says:

Thats true. They risk at first and tray the new way. But the problem was than they explain how it works and now 3 apps appears copying the method.

Yay .....jk I don't use insta anything lol

Zulfigar says:

Same, but still nice to have (finally, although still not the "official" app) for those who do use it.

AdzyBaby says:

Any guesses for the name of this lovechild? I'm going to pitch graphgram

jordandrako says:

Thought of that as well, but I like Metrograph better.

bilzkh says:

Diversity is good! It's thanks to our awesome devs that we are able to access our favourite services in unique but effective ways, e.g. look at the SuperTube, MetroTube and myTube apps (I bought all 3!). More and more it is as though Windows Phone has the most culture and awesomeness in its community of developers, users and pros!

Zulfigar says:

And glad to have MetroTube on Windows 8 / rt :D

RaphaelChaia says:

Unfortunatly I'll stick with Instagraph around for a while... Itsdagram is great, but it Just wont upload anything: it keeps crashing everytime I try to crop a Picture. Very frustrated...

wetworker says:

That's funny I've upladed a bunch of stuff and I have't experiency any crashes.
Try reinstalling app or even restart your phone.
BTW add me:wetworker on instagram.
 
 

RaphaelChaia says:

Ive already done both things, and it keep crashing =/ And Itsdagram looks pretty great, Im really looking foward to start using it.

wetworker says:

I don't know what to tell you then. i'm having the same issues with MetroTube on my Surface. it hangs when I log into my YT account. plays fine when i'm not signed in. Ghost In The Shell :(

RaphaelChaia says:

Wait for an update, what else? =/

Zulfigar says:

Might be a regional thing that can soon be fixed (as it looks like just a few people are having this issue).

chucky says:

I'm Gucci with itsdagram don't need anything else.

Visual360 says:

Sorry, but Itsdagram blow this out of the water.

wetworker says:

Although I bought itsdagram to support the developer, I prefer these two app UI. I don't want a iOs or androids clone. Itsdagram is a great looking app, it works, hasn't crashed on me but I want that full fledged metro look. No trace of Android,iOs.

TJWINS says:

I can't imagine anything more metro than Itsdagram. It doesn't come close to resembling neither the iOS nor the Android versions.

Jean80 says:

It sure looks Metro to me. I use the iOS and Android apps extensively and it looks like neither!

Will this be free? 

Sam Sabri says:

Not sure yet, but it shouldn't. The devs should receive compensation for their hard work. 

Dexterrino says:

With the powers combine, i give you... Metrograph.

eduardopl says:

We don't have an official instagram app, but WP is the first Os with two full instagram clients xD

Zulfigar says:

Welcome to Windows Phone, the world of first's that even Facebook had to follow suite (Facebook phone being about the people sounded too familiar).

C4llian says:

Itsdagram is all Windows Phone need I think.

until instagram shuts it down,remember instagraph is still the only legal way to upload to instagram from wp.

xyronaut says:

Just tried itsdagram & here's my take: 1.checking timeline, much faster & not as buggy as metrogram. But unable to view photo comments like metrogram. 2.uploading photo, taking way too long & it's still uploading after 15 mins. Don't have experience in uploading with instagraph yet.

Jean80 says:

You can view comments on Itsdagram. Tap on picture to bring you to comments.

xyronaut says:

Hmmm still not working. R u using lumia? Im using samsung ativ s btw.

mottle says:

It's funny that there are now more possibilities to uploade to instagram than on any other platform.

Great app, but I dont see any filters. There is only "pure". :S

xdarude says:

If I think well the instagraph will link the metrogram, but we have to install both? Or It is going to be only one app... I don't understand this.

bassrebel says:

call me weird (really, don't) but I'm dying to try Instagraph + Metrogram... After trying both instagraph and itsdagram, I keep coming back to instagraph, despite the lag in uploading pictures.  Why, must you ask? just because I can create borders in the app zooming out, instead of transferring it to my android tablet, using instasize and sending it back to my phone. 
Right now I'm using instagraph to post, and itsdagram to comment on pictures... pretty sweet =)

TechnoTim says:

How is combining 2 apps to 1 competition. Its the opposite.
