That means that they are not supporting WP yet, or any third party app for uploading.
The new API allows adding relationships, comments, likes, and subscriptions. It does not enable adding media, tags, or locations.
I cant handle this anymore!
Android's version is pathetic though , it's a sad dumbed port of iOS's app !
I had it in my Atrix (before I sold it for an 8X) & I have it my Xoom .
If this is a prelude to an Instagram announcement (or the API being released...) ...hallelujah.
* I just noticed the date of this post. Sorry guys.
Uh! Can't wait for tomorrow.
Sure, you guys know how to tease!
That's all I ever read about on WPcentral anymore..
It is now tomorrow. Out with it now!
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)

I am not worthy!
Im waiting for this announcements.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
