Stop the presses as original Instagram app Instance, version 2.0, finally arrives

Stop the presses as original Instagram app Instance, version 2.0, finally arrives

If you go way back to the start of Instagram apps on Windows Phone, Instance (previously known as Itsdagram) was one of the first apps to link straight to the service for direct photo uploads. It was a huge win at the time for Windows Phone as it gave the first, native like experience for the service. Later, 6tag came onto the scene and Instance faded. Although beta 2.0 was previewed...

Instance v2 Beta: the first Windows Phone app with direct uploads to Instagram returns with a new UI, video support and more

Guess what, Android and iOS may have official versions of Instagram, but they don’t have choices. On Windows Phone we have two solid apps to go with right now, 6tag and Instance. 6tag is the newcomer to the scene, while Instance has been around for quite a bit longer. Instance was the first app to bring direct uploads to Instagram on Windows Phone. Daniel Gary, the developer, has been...

Instagram makes more changes, restores Windows Phone third-party app posting privileges, for now

Instagram makes more changes, restores Windows Phone third-party app posting privileges, for now

Instagram has evidently made one more change, hopefully the last, to their API for publishing photos to the service. We can now confirm that users can upload to the network using third party apps like Instance, and that those photos are public (unlike the last change). That’s an improvement from yesterday, where posting was blocked only to return later, but with photos marked as ‘...

Instagram reverses course on security measures? Instance working again but with a limitation

Instagram reverses course on security measures? Instance working again but with a limitation

Instagram has reportedly altered their security measures one more time today as users are now reporting that posts are sticking via third-party Windows Phone app Instance. Indeed, we can confirm via our own account that the third party app is working, but there is a catch: images are posted as private and not public. Why the sudden change? We have no idea, though possibly there was some...

Instagram actively seeking and destroying photos published through third party apps [Update]

Instagram actively seeking and destroying photos published through third party apps [Update]

Those of us attempting to use Instagram on our Windows Phones are left with no alternative but to utilise third party solutions. These apps are solid offerings in place of an official app from Instagram, but of course we're essentially going through back doors to get our content published. All was well for a short while with uploads presently available for viewing, but Instagram has...

PSA: Your Instagram time sink is on hold, Instance down for everyone (Update: It works!)

PSA: Your Instagram time sink is on hold, Instance down for everyone (Update: It works!)

If you want to have a somewhat coherent Instagram experience on Windows Phone the app to get has been Instance. It was one of the first apps (and most polished) that allowed users to upload pictures to the social network. However, we’re getting reports that the app isn’t working. Instance was notable because it didn’t require a server in the middle to upload to Instagram. How did it do...

Unofficial Instagram client, Instance goes on sale to celebrate response from community

Unofficial Instagram client, Instance goes on sale to celebrate response from community

Instance is the popular unofficial Instagram client for Windows Phone 8. We've previously followed the development of the app (back when it was known as Itsdagram) and provided you all with a say on what the new name should be. Now we're returning to Instance to celebrate a temporary price drop, which is in response to the positive reception both the app and developer have witnessed...
