Itsdagram beta now available for Windows Phone (Updated)

Itsdagram

We've been following the development of Itsdagram for a while now with the developer throwing out numerous updates for the private beta. The app has finally made it to the Windows Phone Store and now consumers can enjoy the Instagram experience. 

If you're not up-to-date with what Itsdagram features in terms of functionality, here's what's on the table:

  • Notifications – Lockscreen (icon and detailed info), Toast and Live Tile for comments and likes
  • Social integration – You can now login with Twitter and Facebook accounts for auto-sharing
  • Delete photos
  • Create new account
  • Search for friends – Go through your contacts to find and follow people you know
  • Full commenting, following, liking enabled
  • Activity screen – Single list-view of all notifications (new follows, likes and comments)

Sounds pretty good, right? We'd definitely recommend checking it out. Do note that Itsdagram is currently in beta and problems could occur, so be sure to be cautious if purchasing today. You can download Itsdagram from the Windows Phone for $1.49 (Windows Phone 8 only - WP7 version in the works).

Update: We just received word from the developer that due to a few missing features and bugs, Itsdagram was pulled.  Nothing nefarious, just a few beta issues to be ironed out.

This is for everyone that doesn't read it first before commenting.

It's allready pulled, probably Instagram had their cease and desist letter ready and the finger on the send button.. As expected
 
But maybe it's just a glitch allthough I doubt it.. we'll see

It is still avaiable here. I doubt it has been pulled, more likely it isn't available in your country yet (the store takes a little while to propagate).

Someone leaked it!? I hope they are found and strung up! Undermining your hard work like that sucks. Keep up the hard work Daniel. Look forward to the official release.

Wow...shame on them!! Oh well, we will continue to wait until it officially comes out! (Crossing fingers-hope it's soon)

I'm glad I got the chance to buy your app before you pulled it. I know that its your choice, but I think it would have been better to leave it on the store. I know that its not 100% ready, but we've been waiting for so long for a great instagram experience and your app delivers. Just look at the reviews! Also, I'd love to join your beta, it that's an option.

Wow! Well I was hoping yo get it, but I certainly can wait until you decide its ready. Sorry you've been hassled by someone leaking your hard work before its ready. We love our WP Devs and certainly don't want anyone to discourage you. Think of it as a sign of how in demand your App will be once YOU think its ready to go!

Great work so far. I'm one of the early people who bought the app. Does this mean if the app officially is published to the store, I would have to buy it again?

You will NOT have to purchase the app again, I assure you.  Please follow @danielgary on Twitter for updates about Itsdagram's status. 

Glad I got it while I could then. Love the app. Sure it needs some improvements, which I can email you some suggestions, but I am definitely keeping the app.

That's sucks. I managed to get it.

Gutted that I'll lose my money on this, but while I wait for full release I'm happy to use

Dude you should've never pulled it. It clearly stated beta. You had good reviews on the market. If instagram releases with the 928 this week your dead in the water.

Why are site owners allowed to prevent people using their api to develop apps , it should not be allowed, that is unless they actually devlop an app within six months of a new OS being released,If Microsoft had stopped anyone developing a site that worked in IE these sites would have been the first to complain. if they think an OS like windows phone 8 is not worth devloping for then give microsoft a chance and let microsoft benefit from the ad revenue if it does succeed. This is why i hardly use most of these type of apps the site owners are just using their popularity to stop microsft becoming as popular as we all know it is going to become. If anyone knows an OS that is going to go places we all know it is windows 8 phone. Just look at the inrease in sales over the intitial six months it has been available and that is with only three OEM's. wait until everyone else gets on the gravy triain.
 
As with YOUtube Microsoft has designed somethign here that instagram will cry about but they brought this on themselves and they are in no way going to be able to block windows phones as if they do Microsoft could conveniently make their sites not work on IE. And although IE is not the best it is still the browser with the most users.

This seems like a much better deal than Instagraph just because it's a full featured client instead of only an uploader. Not to mention the lower price tag.

Is this US only? Not available for my device...Ativ S UK. Curious to see what all this Instagram fuss is about

... are you stupid? Chill the fuck out it will come to your country... Also: you won't spend your money on it when it's not available to you? REALLY? Gosh tell me more about it, please!

LoL I got it in the UK before it was pulled and it's great! We'll see if they'll block it tough.

Looks like its been removed or there making the switch to non beta version (the guy said he just wanted to see if it passed the store)
Is it worth buying, rumour has it the real thing is getting announced at the Nokia event this week??!!

Strange it says "Diese Anwendung ist nicht mehr erhältlich." which translate into "This application is now longer available."
Has it already been pulled?

 

Its not available for me either. Lumia 920 NYC. Maybe instagram is being announced for windows phone this week by Nokia.

Instagraph is the only one fully compliant with Instagram ToS.
We chose the "longer but right way" not simply sniffing and illegally calling their private api...
We think it should be not correct to sell an app that could be immediately removed by Instagram.
We don t expect to receive a C&D, nor Instagraph to be pulled from the Store.

Read the comments, the developer sais it was pulled from the store because it was not ready and someone leaked it.

The developer said he only wanted to see if itsdagram would go through the store and if it did, he priced it even though it was still beta because it was meant to still be private. Source: he commented in the wmpoweruser post

"This app is no longer published".

Not sure if the developer pulled it or if Instagram forced the pulling of the App. Either way, sorry for all you who desperately want an Instagram App. Be patient. 

I snatched it up immediately. Does as advertised. No filters. But there are a ton load of apps available to accomplish filtering, if you choose.

RICH...... Please edit/update article with something up top to help all those confused by not seeing devs comment explaining what happened.

There won't be filters in this app but the developer says there are plenty of apps around if you want to edit your pics.

its not in the official press release. Unless something has changed, the developer in the original video said there would not be filters. 'There are already filter apps out there.'

To dev, I apologize for downloading the app and using it if it wasn't ready. Had no clue til I saw this posting that it was published in error.

Hey, no worries and no need to apologize.  The money comes to me either way, I just hate that you did not get the full app I hoped to release to you guys.

I'm not an instagram user, but, do support those who write apps to fill voids where big companies overlook our platform. When this one is posted, I'll buy it. Who knows it may actually turn me into an Instagram user.

To the people who are saying they can't download it after about 12:22pm on May 12, 2012, just give me your credit card info and I'll download it for you. Also, send me your social security number and bank information. :]

Yes I downloaded before I learned it was a mistake. This beta is 100 times better than instagraph STILL is. What a piece of garbage that is. Don't buy it. Wait for this

Just look forward to it being released, it is truly awesome! I've been trying the private beta for some days, and so far it's great. Great work Daniel!

Downloaded before it was pulled. Sucks that it was leaked but it looks good. I can't get the Facebook to connect but its just a early beta. Looking forward to the official release!

Hey Daniel, I purchased it this morning, and I am also having problems with the Facebook connect as well as searching my phone for contacts. If I can help you in any way, let me know! I suppose I'll forward this to you as well via email.

Give it some time. Once I added facebook/twitter, it updated instagram and twitter instantly, but it took facebook about 30 mins to get the picture.

My experience also.  it works fine.  Just has a small delay.  For me it was about 10 minutes.  Obviously there is still some middleware doing something to make the connection with Instagram.  No problem.  It's still 100 times better than Instagraph which came out a few weeks ago and is till clunky and offers few features besides uploading.  Plus there is a 3 picture limit with Instagraph still eventhough they said it was just until they could do some load balancing, etc.   Their whole rollout was a joke and a fiasco also.
 
Bottom line, don't by Instagraph or Winstagram.  Wait on this product to be released.  It's cheaper and much better.  Only thing it's missing is filters but I hear that will be added soon.  Maybe even in time for the release on Friday
 

I agree; this app is the best out there. 
However, my Facebook issue remains.  It won't let me get past the log in process so I think it is more than just waiting for the connection to be established.
I am more than happy to wait for the official release as I am sure it will be fixed.

Something might be wrong locally with your phone or account.  It could be a bug in their system but it's not affecting me or others so that's odd.  I assume you rebooted the phone

Normally, I would have rebooted it but since the app was a BETA I assumed it was the app.  I did a reboot and still get the same results.  I will wait for his update and see if I am still having issues.  Thanks!

Since there had to be so much a#$ kissing to get them to come over to windows phone...I'll stick with one of the full featured third party apps...whatever instagram!... Thanks lomogram..

The bigger question is, Why hasn't Rich and/or someone on the WPCentral staff updated the headline to advise that the app is No Longer Available?

There is a image uploader for WP7.8 users like me. It is winstagram. I tried, and all my 7 pics from my instagram/marcusasdrubal is from it.

This for black people?? Dis is da insdagram. Think there running out of syllables to put at the end of insta.

I agree. It has some small flaws but its less quirky than Microsoft's new FB Beat and they have millions to invest in dev and testing. It's certainly a lot better than that POS Instagraph that came out a few weeks ago and fell flat on its face out of the gate :/

Beta is currently in the works for wp7 devices. Please read article and then re-read it before you post..

My experience so far shows that it works great.  Just has a small delay transferring to FB.  For me it was about 10 minutes.  Obviously there is still some middleware doing something to make the connection with Instagram.  No problem.  It's still 100 times better than Instagraph which came out a few weeks ago and is till clunky and offers few features besides uploading.  Plus there is a 3 picture limit with Instagraph still eventhough they said it was just until they could do some load balancing, etc.   Their whole rollout was a joke and a fiasco also.
