Instagram for Windows Phone updated with minor bug fix

It’s been nearly two weeks since Instagram updated their beta for Windows Phone. Today, version 0.3.2 went live in the Store and a brief comparison to a control device with the previous 0.3.1 did not reveal any new features.

However, we did notice that our profile picture and follower counts are now more accurate. Indeed, when we look at version 0.3.1, we see our profile info essentially frozen. But on today’s update, our profile view has our updated photo from a few days ago and the counts are more accurate. Of course, we're also willing to chalk that update to something just on our phones, so your experience may differ. Betas are fun like that.

Other than that, there could be the usual performance improvements and other bug fixes, though we’re remiss to do any benchmarks to prove it so.

We’re still hoping for a 0.4 update soon with some new features to bring the official app up to parity with other platforms. But for now, you can pick up 0.3.2 of Instagram beta for Windows Phone here in the Store.

Find something we missed? Let us know in comments!

Thanks, Kjell-Einar W., for the tip!

Instagram for Windows Phone updated with minor bug fix

58 Comments

Instagram has been good this far. She is maturing nicely. I just hope that WP users give her the same love back. Thanks Instagram.

First it was the app, now it's parity. We are in constant fight and struggle. But we will succeed in the end.

I prefer using official apps. Those aren't going to be pulled due to cease-and-desist orders. Paying for 3rd party knockoffs, only for them to be discontinued isn't good.

Well, that's not really the reason. 6tag does have more features than the official app, on any platform. That's just a fact. Whether or not it's reason to use them is a personal decision, but I wouldn't say people are 'on the bandwagon' when using 6tag. 

I already made the mistake of buying Twitter app Carbon and getting burned. I stick with official apps for big name stuff.

I also paid for Board Express Pro, only for Tapatalk to release free and better official app.

You are aware that 6tag is free? There's only IAP to remove ads (optional) or upload videos (also optional).

Since the official app doesn't do videos yet, I think it's alright to 'invest' $1.49. But to each their own. I think paying for exclusive features that you want now is the hallmark of the free market, so I can't begrudge the notion of 6tag.

Basic features like using the windows phone keyboard and dictionary to make editing words and hashtags easier are a must. 6tag has this the extra features that Daniel mentioned.

I am like you Laura. I like official apps. For many reasons you all ready named a few.
Why is the majority of Windows Phone users so hostile towards official apps?
The majority of the responses on these comments are negative. Thus, who in the world would want to develop for Windows Phone. I like Instagram and I really appreciate that they have consider Windows Phone.

I like offigial IG filters, these are more authentic on official client that on 6tag. so I'm constantly switching between these two... and its gonna stay that way until I see those advertised "cinematic" video filters for official IG, or shall Rudy be ahead of the company here too?!

 

its a bit embarrassing...

 

She's got a point. Instagram at any moment can decide to pull the plug on all 3rd party apps that access their service.

True true, just saying that 6tag might not be around forever. I use it for the location features and direct but that's about it.

If u didn't know... Instagram gave Rudy the thumbs up to make his 6tag app... There wont be a cease-and-desist order any time soon...

When you are listening to music, and you open 6tag, you can turn off auto-play videos...you cant have any sound played unless you manually press play on a video...unless you mean something else?

Well.. Its good to see that they are still sending out updates. I think it'll get the must-need features sooner or later. But until then I'll just stick to 6tag.

Sooo, its seams like we only will get the "full" Instagram experience in the WP8.1, just like FB with all the fixes needed, Whatsapp with so many new features, Flippboard and Skype fully functional....
MS likes to wait for big announcements for that. And I think that they are telling devs to hold on a little more to release news things like that.

Still doesnt fix the issue of  being unable to share on Twitter. Everytime I try to add my twitter account if comes up with a "OAuth Error"

No such issue on the offical Android and iOS app

I want so bad to by WP but when I see people always complaining about apps makes me think again.. But will wait for WP 8.1 release with the new phones (Hope updated 1020) and will decide after that :-)

it was draining battery and making the phone hot but after this update I think it somewhat alleviated that problem.

Dearest WPCentral, Flappy Bird (Clone) by IG Mobile was updated to version 1.0.0.2 It doesn't say any change log, but I can feel better tap improvement. Check it out, maybe post an update.

Hello, is it possible that this beta update block posting to Facebook? Or is problem somewhere else? I havent problem with this yet. 

Video autoplay is one thing different from the previous minor update... I haven't found anything else different...
