Good news for you Instagram users on Itsdagram—an app you should be quite familiar with by now. Version 1.2 was rushed through the approval process and is now available in the Store. Coming out faster than we anticipated, 1.2 is actually quite a nice update and brings a lot of fixes and improvements.
More on that and the Changelog below.
Free version will be out soon too
Besides the updated paid version, the free is also supposed to go live today (it has been cleared). It's essentially the same app but with some ads at the bottom, as to be expected. So in case you don't use Instagram that often or don't have the ability to pay a $1.49, you can now join in on the fun as well.
We'll do a separate post when that goes live. Stay tuned, though it should be here today.
So what's new in 1.2?
Back to version 1.2 of the paid app, this has been one in the works for quite some time as many beta testers can attest to, meaning this isn’t just a slight bump. Here are the changes:
- No more black background on comments
- New Live Tile design (iconic)
- Find friends should work now
- Registration should be smoother
- See your following/follower count in your profile
- Private profiles and approve/deny requests
- Refined UI
- Notifications should not repeat
- Save images to your phone
- Direct feedback page removed
The refined Live Tile is interesting as it gives the app more personality and doesn’t scream “Trademark Infringement” like the previous version (which used Instagram’s logo). We have a feeling that was done to not give Instagram an angle for using their likeness should a cease & desist be filed (even so, Gary says he has “contingencies”).
Added bonus? It's certainly more Metro/Modern UI and dare we say it looks way better.
The rest of the improvements should go a long way in making the user experience much better for those having problems.
You can pick up Itsdagram version 1.2 here in the Store. Windows Phone 8 only (A version for 7.x is still planned but there is no ETA on it).
UPDATE: The free version of Itsdagram is now available too. Read our coverage here.
