Instagram pushes out a rapid fix for their Windows Phone beta app

56

Although Instagram updated their beta app for Windows Phone earlier in the week, it appears there were some stability issues. At least, that’s what we’re inferring from today’s minor 0.0.1 update, which is now live in the Store.
