Itsdagram, the first fully featured Instagram client for Windows Phone 8, is now available!
Instagram, unofficially, has finally come to Windows Phone 8
It’s been a while in the making, but Itsdagram, a fully functional Instagram client, is now ready to be purchased (with a free trial, of course).
The app goes for $1.49 and is currently for Windows Phone 8 only (Windows Phone 7.x will come later). A free, ad supported version is due later next week but for now, you can try out and use version 1.1 of Itsdagram, which will allow you to upload photos directly to Instagram as well as create an account and view your friends’ photos.
From the app description:
"The only fully featured Instagram client on the market. Register, upload, comment, like, follow, find your facebook friends; All from Itsdagram!
What would an Instagram app be without filters!? Itsdagram filters can be updated daily without the need to update the app. You will never know when you've got a brand new filter waiting for you!"
- Double tap to like
- Tap and hold to swap between Timeline view and Grid view.
- See photos you've liked and have been tagged in on your profile page
- Change your profile picture and password there too!
- Pin your favorite hashtags and users to your homescreen to keep track of them.
- Free Trial will allow users that already have an account to upload 1 image to test. All other features are completely enabled. Commenting, Liking, Following, etc...
- Registering a new account with Instagram requires the full version of Itsdagram.
We’ve been very happy with Daniel Gary’s progress on this project over the last few weeks and we think you’d be silly to not at least give it a go. Let us know in comments what you think!
Update: There’s a problem with some European cultures that use commas instead of decimals (ie $1,49 instead of $1.49). It will be fixed in an update early next week.

However it crashes everytime I try to upload a picture to the site :( (which makes it pretty much useless).
Been reading reviews and it seems most people cant upload pictures. What do you guys say?
Looking forward to bug fixes so the app works as good as it looks!
Big plus for the live tiles :-)
i choose a photo, crop it, it correctly fade out to black moving the cropped pic to the bottom.. aaandd i'm on the homescreen :(
Just to record, I already bought your app.
I love the app and the way you've designed it but there's one thing that would be nice. Can you implement the ability to zoom out of a photo when framing? Thanks
The "communication" apps are a problem for me. I have Skype, WhatsApp, Viber and I deleted KiK as soon as they said "we have no plans for Windows Phone 8"...which was AFTER they posted some stats about how having a Windows Phone app, increased their userbase on all of their platforms. Now, they're dead to me!
However, I've had an issue with Facebook linking -- the app correctly redirects me to FB to authenticate, then I can assign permissions to Instagram... but after choosing whether or not to authorize Instagram to post on behalf of me I get sent to a white screen, and the permission never makes its way back to the app.
One question: I understand that the app uses undocumented API to publish to Instagram. Can Instagram block api requests coming from your application and render the app not working?
Just curious. I'm not even an Instagram user but paid the 1.99$ for your effort and it's totally worth it.
If you need the full features of Instagram, then Itsdagram would be the most likely choice for you however if you strictly need to upload a photo, Itsdagraph is perfect as well :D
Edit: Seems to work fine though using a .com email address instead of .co.uk.
(1) It wont find my Phone Or Facebook friends.
(2) Cant see my friends list of followers nor who they are following.
But right now it's useless, because I can't upload pictures. Well i still have Instagraph, so will have to use that until a fix is comming
Wish you couldve saved pics like the other clients out there, but then again the official app doesnt allow that on the other platforms.
Also took a year to post a comment of mine. not sure if it's just my data connection but everything other than posting worked fine
I think it would be nice if you could implement some things that WPGram offers. Like, the ability to save, pan & zoom and have a favorites tab, where you can see your favorite users and tags. That would be great.
The developer is already aware of this bug.
BUT IT'S WROOONG! CRASH EVERY F*KIN TIME AFTER CROPPING THE PHOTO!!! HTC8X
Anyone have any ideas?
After that, I had no issue reopening, viewing feeds and uploading a photo.
Daniel - what is the best way to submit bug reports to you?
On a photo that I posted, if I click on it, I see a friend's photo instead. And if I click my username, I go to her profile instead, too. I uploaded a profile photo, and it showed up when I did that, but it's not showing up next to my username.
I'm also seeing, under Followers, one friend listed twice.
You got it! Kind of like Flickr was but it focused on mobile, forced everyone to crop to square and added those filters. People went crazy for it :-)
1. Pics in timeline are dark and blurry( I have brightness set to high)
2.cant see the people friends are following or who follows them
3. A few more filters are needed
thank you for this app!!
don't get me wrong after using the app a while it's a very good app it's the instagram format i find disappointing!
