Lets hope it is instagram
Daniel, this was the laugh that I needed. Not your actual post, but the sh*t show it started. Thanks for making my Tuesday a little less stressful.
OMG...instagram this instagram that...I starting to hate it without even using it yet.
Everyone Viber is now available! Go download it, I just did..
Just seen the walkthrough video mentioned above and there is another app supporting third party upload - Hipstamatic.http://www.gottabemobile.com/2012/03/21/hipstamatic-is-the-first-app-to-...
Instagram had a partnership to allow Hipstamatic users to upload straight to instagram so the upload APIs are definitely available, it seems - if on a case-by-case basis.
The question is, if this unknown developer of Instagraph can create an Instagram client app, why can't instagram themselves do it? a partnership with Apple or Google (perhaps both) stopping them from creating an app for the competing platform? This would mean a third party app is the only option they could provide to windows user currently, anyway.
This showed up on "Weave" app, it's a link to redit that shows how instagraph works. Be warned the video will not work on phones, unless you have your phone browser set.to PC; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lv9UQRYt2LM&feature=player_embedded
300 comments and still going strong
I think Dani is talking about this. :)
"Hello World" has 2 meanings. Developers first lesson is "Hello world" the clue is in the pic. It means someone has the official upload API and has built us something to use it. We'll have it tomorrow, or soon.
Instagraph walkthrough video posted on YouTubehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=lv9UQRYt2LM
And according to this, IT DOES support posting on Instagram.
Now since Instagram API does not officially support posting for third party apps, they either got a special agreement with Instagram OR they have found a way around it, if that’s the case it will only be a matter of time until they get blocked.

This app doesn't seem to be able to view photos on instagram which really sucks...
+1 ^ I dont even publish photos (because i dont have on my WP :( ), only to see them which is better.
He posted this at 1:00 am on April 2. Tomorrow is obviously April 3. Check back on Wednesday.
The picture shows us a title : "new instagram"
I'm going in on this Instagram once it becomes available to WP. I still have my iPhone 5. Can't wait till the 15th to get my 920!! Ughh
Clearly Daniel uploaded a picture and added a caption. Why is everyone confused or doubtful?
Nearly a Fact
By the time I get up...surely there will be more than 300 comments ...instagram
second page of comments, omg...
OMG ... I can't wait !!!
They have released the upload API I guess !!!
Wow they released the API
WHAT?! Please tell me its Instagram!
Woah! I like how he didn't even write much for the article lol. Hoping for the best today. :)
You people need a hobby its just a photo app
Instagram is our hobby. This 'photo app' will indeed be a game changer for the windows phone platform.
I'm not so sure a whole mass of iPhone and Android users are going to suddenly flock to WP b/c of an app. I'd love to be proven wrong, but I don't see it.
This is going to be huge for the platform, if and when it happens. I hope they link up with Notification.
It makes sense for Instagram to release the API, they're now owned by Facebook and Facebook is pretty open. It would also be cheaper for them to allow 3rd parties to develop apps for Windows Phone / Blackberry than to do it themselves. It wont be long until Instagram is fully integrated into Facebook anyway.
Instagram (just like Facebook, its owner) will rely on the collection of data from users as a way to generate income, and they can get that information just as efficiently from the official and unofficial apps.
So instead of an official app we'll now see tons of half-assed 3rd party apps? Sorry, I paid for my phone so I'd prefer an official, well made app.
You do realize that you should place the blame on Instagram for not allowing for disallowing 3rd party uploads because of its API and not Nokia or the Windows Phone team, right? I mean, surely you should at least know to point the finger at the right people.
Some 3rd party apps are really good.
Instagram isn't really a productivity app, it is a social networking app, and I am sure the 3rd party apps will deliver something like Instagram.
I bet if Nokia releases an App in the future, they'll probably go to Instagram (Facebook) and get permission to develop an "official" 3rd party app for Nokia Lumia customers and that will be what sets Nokia apart from other manufacturers that rely on the unofficial 3rd party apps that will be released.
You clearly must be an idiot. Some of the best apps I downloaded have been 3rd party apps. Until the official app is released it may be the best we have till then...
Let's not resort to name calling and abusing; that's not a game you'd wanna go up against me in.
And if you're even remotely familiar with how apps work, you'd know despite whatever APIs are available, a 3rd party app will always be limited in functionality. Some examples of these are 4th and Mayor, MetroTube, all 3rd party Twitter clients, Facebook. I'm not going to go into details of how these are limited. Do your own research.
You loser...all you are capable of is whining...why the hell do you use WP then if all you can find in it are complaints?? If you want everything similar to android and iOS, then switch to one of them damnit .. Just Get lost and dont return.
"I paid for my phone"? Wow, I guess in a tantrum, all sense is lost. I researched my phone purchase and never saw Instagram mentioned or promised as a feature.
I also don't get this 3rd party-phobic attitude going around. Its as if people WANT to have some reason to fall to the floor gyrating and spewing tears and snot, as if the world will end if they don't get their "official" Instagrime app. If it has the same functionality and you still complain...you need help.
A +million for that dalydose...
Don't mind this guy since all he ever does is troll this site with his anti-Windows Phone nonsense. Not surprised he found something to bitch about again - this time third party apps.
0/10 Troll harder
Look at the pic. Now look at the link Daniel has given. It shows the same pic on instagram. Which by simple reasoning means that Daniel has used this app Instagraph to post an image to instagram. Simple as that. Likes and comments and other stuff I have no clue, but I'd be much pleased if the whiners stop their incessant rants.
Looks like they opened the API, venatasoft has tons of windowsphone pics from the stock gallery on his instagram
More instagram hype, whining, moaning, and complaining. Yawn... Let's get this app out of the way so WPCentral can move on to other things already.
It is now tomorrow in Australia, so where is the bloody app!
Unless I'm reading wrong the app says "Instagraph, powered by Aviary, share on Instagram". This would lead us to believe that the API for sharing is coming. I guess we'll know soon.
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
Does tomorrow mean Wednesday, or Tuesday? Since it was posted 1am EST. I'm so confused.
im trying to figure that out too.
Okay, speaking for Liquid Daffodil, if they get enough users to tweet it, they will create a beautiful Instagram client for free...start tweeting!
Good God man do it, do it now!, don't wait for tweets, i don't even have twitter!
I wil be like zombie all over the day waiting
There is a text "Share on Instagram" helll
Damn it. I will not sleep......
Its just stupid to not make an app for ALL platforms instead of just 2
Another interesting point, (or maybe I'm just trying to find a new line of argument) is that it says Share on Instagram (TM). This probably means that Instagram is only opening up the share option to a few 3rd party developers????
Yea i think thats it
<p>yes, adsolutely right! My app "InstaLove" that will be coming soon also enable users to upload photos on to instagram, browse, comment and like. Just like an Instagram app</p>
Jason, are you saying you are also creating an app called InstaLove, a 3rd party app for Instagram? If so, that’s amazing. Can you share more details like timing of release etc.
Metrogram is a great 3rd party Instagram especially since they're only allowed so much code access
Like today tomorrow or tomorrow tomorrow? Inquiring minds need to know...
So..what's going on here
Go see better. App called instagraph and not instagram!
I think that's an article that their writing for the new Instagram app that we don't have access to yet, only them and other people testing the app.
so is it wp8 only or a lumia exclusive?has be one of the two right :/
Oh god, ya'll are gonna shit a brick. I'm not onto the instagram craze, but it would be a big win for WP, unfortunately its an essential for most. Got my fingers and toes crossed.
In a couple years instagram will be a thing of the past. People will move on to something else
Yeah, we heard
Good, glad you heard TonyDick you virginal secretion. Look it up in the dictionary you virgin.
Someone forgot their meds today, lol.
Yeah and that's millions of people (i'm afraid) who'll get cheap Android's for the next 2 years. Doesn't matter how much of a fad Instagram is, it's things like that that sell phones these days.
Great, without Instagram maybe Windows Phone will be thing of the past too. =) Too bad, WP was great was it lasted.
King Daniel Rubio teasing us!
I am not worthy!
Im waiting for this announcements.
Agreed, its an official Instagram app or I couldn't care less.
So if it does the exact same thing and supports uploading, you won't use it because it's not "official"? Right. If you're Instacrying about it, I'm calling BS. You'll be posting square, filtered pics of you cat and begging everyone to follow you the first day you are able.
Anything other then the official Instagram app is just sad. So im not gonna celebrate. :-/
Some 3rd party apps are better then official apps so this shouldn't matter. Look at SBUX Card. That's better than iOS & Android Official app.
Picture is not Samsung ATIV as usual /s, it is Nokia Lumia exclusive?
Maybe we are getting an app that can let us post. I'm following Daniel on instagram now through instacam
Good morning Daniel. Time for that news. :)
The question is if Dani created his account and posted that pic using a windows phone device.
That is the question! And if you look at his profile on instagram, it sure does look like it.
This aticle shows the picture BEFORE he posted it. At the bottom, you can see the "send/post" button. If you look at the picture on his profile, it's the same, with the same caption. (i.e after he uploaded it)
la la la la
Interesting. Let's hear it then Danny bhoy!
It would probably take Instagram devs a few weeks at most to develop an official app, yet they refuse to do so. Bunch of pricks.
This. Instagram is already starting to get Facebook-ized. People are already looking for the next thing.. And no it's not "Photoplay"
HOLY CRAP! that guy on twitter who everyone said was a fake that said the ly would release instagram, real racing 3 and temple run 2 maybe wasn't lying
Its InstagrPH by the way.
No, it's Instagraph
WHY DO YOU PUNISH US SO?!
Dan , You are worse than Rockstar Games when it comes to teasing !
Anyone following Rockstar Games' reveal of GTA V box art know what i mean ! Lol
I looked up what Aviary is and it's a photo-editing SDK. The Aviary service allows you to plug the SDK into HTML5 and cross-platform apps for iOS, Android, and Windows Phone.
There is a section on the homepage listing companies partnered with Aviary but Instagram isn't in the huuuuge list U_U I guess we'll hear more about it soon.
More Instagram teasing.... Love it!!! :D
*Adjust the computer time to add one more day*
It is now tomorrow. Out with it now!
I hope it's an official instagram app :-)
the instagram dev page says: "However, in the future we may give whitelist access to individual apps on a case by case basis". I hope that it means they can give an access for uploading to some apps that they would be interested
I'm into Photoplay now. Instagram is so 2012.
I too like photoplay
Photoplay is nice only problem is no one I know uses it or has even heard of it for that matter, so there really no point for me using it becuz I mostly use it for social reasons :/
I like photoplay if only there are less bikini clad women and more ryan gosling look alikes posting their pictures.
Photoplay is lame. Never gets my location right, not even within 1,500 miles. EXTREMELY slow and even lamer filters than instagram. I prefer fhotoroom & do use instagram, but had to uninstall photoplay.
Dan don't do this man. You know we will loose our cool.
Whats dat?? Empty post??
Nup cool, still waiting for FRIKIN VIBERRR!!!!!! ARGH ITS BEEN A WEEK (almost) since it was submitted to the store, where the fuck is it viber!!! Patience is wearing veeerrry thin!!
You did not just do that.
This better not be a joke, Daniel.
And I think Aviary got first hands-on with the open API.
This story broke my WPCentral live tile! All I see is a black tile with the text "Anything" laid out vertically.
I hope Nokia will inherit this to their SophieLens and Creative Studio. God! I love those apps!
Who really cares? Love my 920 and I have few android tabs with instagram and have never used it. I really don't care if it comes or not
But you should care - because it is the one thing which keeps many people from switching to Windows phone, and that I quess you would like (more people on wp).
Again, I don't think loads of iPhone and android users are waiting for this to jump ship
Every head counts I say. We have small user base.
You obviously cared enough to comment in a post about Instagram.
I wish Instagram would just release their freakin' app and get it over with!
That's all I ever read about on WPcentral anymore..
Maybe he use Reverse Engineering ;)
If you look at the api it does support upload if you have instagram app installed. So ios only:(
As long as the app is good and its for 7.8 to then were good but other then that id rather have an official one!
I think he just used Instagraph to read (readonly api right?) his post on Instagram so he would not show the real application. What you say?
If it doesnt come with a lense - it sucks
As I learnt very young that tomorrow never comes. :D
That sounds like a James bond trailer lol.
Damnit tomorrow is my first day of school after break! Thanks for letting me sleep (not.)
Could this be real? I hope so!
When I wake up I will see what this is all about, im ready for anything.
What a tease you are, shame on you. I'm not going to sleep all night. . .
I don't care about Instagram whatsoever. However, I just woke up in the middle of the night and saw this. I started chuckling out loud and saying "their heads are going to explode." After the whole joke from the Windows Phone site from Sunday/Monday, I expect that there are at least 25 people who have seen this and peed themselves.
This better be good news...aviary is sometimes way to slow for me. And I want a lens integration please.
I know couple friends who want to switch from Android to WP8. But not going to until WP8 gets instagram.
I'm Hawaii its still April first so do u guys mean tomorrow as in April 2nd or the mainlands tomorrow as in April 3rd?
I think he means the 2nd... it's really considered late night
at least that is what i'm hoping he meant =)
Um Hawaii isn't that far behind. He means the 2nd.
What the hells going on here?
Past somebody's bedtime I see....
Late April fools joke?
Instagram onslaught continues. Good if they opened the APIs, but I would love to see them being implemented ASAP.
Uh! Can't wait for tomorrow.
Sure, you guys know how to tease!
This post is giving me diarrhea..
Weiner twitched slightly
I guess someone finally reversed engineered the android version of the app and made the upload possible
i dont think thats possible without the api
that why I said there is a case of reverse engineering here. Because the api still does not allow for uploads or will ever allow for uploads
They've already allowed an app on IOS to share/upload photos to Instagram and said they'll be releasing it to all. So you're wrong, fortunately for us!
If they release the api for more apps then that's good. I hope this to be the case
It should be illegal, Instagram will ask Ms to delete the App from Store after 5 minutes. Instagraph is 100% legal.
Yet they don't use the API :)). Hmmm I don't think you can prove in court that the method is ilegal. Sure it can still go down
it sure made a buzz :D
Just to ruin the surprise, it does appear that Instagram is experimenting with opening up an upload API.http://www.macstories.net/news/instagrams-new-experiment-open-up-the-api-for-third-party-uploads/
* I just noticed the date of this post. Sorry guys.
May be so, but that link is over 1 year old.
All that does on iOS is launch the instagram app to do the uploading. The uploading isn't done via the third party app.
Wait....wait wait....so many questions lol
ok that is just cruel. i've never used instagram but thought i'd click on the instagram link to see what the photo was and ewww the instagram site has a iOS app gui feel to it.... i soooooooo wanna vomit.
And let's all start following each other :) http://instagram.com/samsabri
Oh come on Sam. Quit making it worse. :P haha
Follow me :-)
Sam this post is almost as bad as paying for twitter followers ;)
If "anything is possible" then I want to be able to fly like Superman. Instagram? Pffffft....
Agreed ! To hell with Instagram, i wanna floor it in a Veyron or a P1 in the Autobahn !
Hope for the best. still ready to be gonged on the spot.
Instagram....guaranteed to get your comments section over 100 post, lol.
+1 That's a true fact...
True dat !!!!
That many people already posted to this huh?? Can't wait for tomorrow.
Woo I don't care if its not the official app as long as I can post insta pics from my windows phone ill be stoked ^.^
Left my account after switching to WP for way too long to start again.
The only thing I can deduce from the picture is that this app, Instagraph, uses Aviary photo filters and let's you post them on Instagram. Now, we need to know who's behind it, when it's gonna be released, etc.
Dan, I hope you're hating to be that guy... Making us wait and stuff.
Da Faq is this?
Just a late April Fools joke...
At this time, uploading via the API is not possible. We made a conscious choice not to add this for the following reasons:
Never really understood this seeing as people post some stuff bordering on spam and low quality anyways (that includes people I know).
LOL everyone thinks they are a professional photographer on Instagram
I probably wouldn't generalize that far. I think most know what the deal is. However, there are in fact some professionals, and beyond average enthusiasts who post their work on Instagram
Are you serious? 90% of insta photos come from teenager who snaps themselves in front of a mirror. C'mon iphone users arent able to use even their aged phone, insta users arent so "super photographers", believe me :D
In front of a mirror * lol
Even if they get to upload, they won't care because it isn't the "official" one. Hopefully WPGram will update their app with uploading.
I disagree some 3rd party apps are better than official apps. We don't have official Starbucks app but why would we need it when we have SBUX Card. Compared to iOS or Android official app its way better.
+1 for WPGram
I read the topic title... and can only think of Kevin Garnett screaming it outloud on National TV back in '08.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wcz_kDCBTBkIf this is a prelude to an Instagram announcement (or the API being released...) ...hallelujah.
Haha agreed on KG
AANNNNNNNNNYTHING IISSSSS POSSSSSILBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBBLE
Its a third party app with instragam release of API......hope it works like the real app....otherwise we will hear and see the complains everywhere...what happened to Microsoft's big surprise
Is Instagram really important or just the app fad of the day that will be abandoned by the time WP gets it? I still remember how people wouldn't shut up about how important Draw Something was. I can't see myself ever looking at Instagram photos. Filters are not that interesting to look at and they ruin good photos. I really don't get this one.
Yes its important because instagram is essentially a social network. Some people use instagram instead of fb to view their friends pics.
