    Default Instagram for BB10

    I just wanted to let the CrackBerry Nation know that Instagram has submitted their first beta of the app for BB10 for testing by RIM employees courtesy of @BlackBerryScoop on twitter who is most likely is a RIM employee.

    THAT is GREAT news for BB10.

    It will be interesting to see how BB10 users receive it, after all the debate as to how useless it is.

    I will get it.

    It will be one of the top downloads in App World as soon as it's available.

    LOL. With all the negative publicity Instagram has received in the past couple days I find this amusing. How many subs will Instagram lose before BB10 launches? I'm seeing tweets of people posting pics to Instagram and linking them Twitter the past couple days basically telling Instagram to sell photos of them flipping Instagram the bird! Glad the app will be there for the app centric people out there who require tons of social networks to survive and/or feel relevant, but between the recent Twitter integration changes on Instagram and ToS changes they aren't hitting a lot of home runs lately with the user base from what I'm seeing. Good news for BB10 at least and one less app for people to whine about not being there hopefully at launch.

    Interesting little sentence there.

    I require water, food, sleep, shelter, and personal protection to survive. I don't need a BB nor any software it might or might not have.
    I do not gain my sense of relevancy from a piece of plastic nor the software surrounding it. I get my sense of relevancy from my impact on those I love.

    However.....since today's technical advances offer me the ability to share aspects of my life with people of my choosing in a manner that is faster and less cumbersome than mailing packages full of pictures to physical addresses all over the country and across the pond, I like to take advantage of those advances.

    In my opinion, it dovetails the BB is a tool/iPhone and Androids are toys mentality. Facts are that the line between the so called tools/toys is blurring. Additionally, one of BB's weaknesses is the lack of apps, and this is one weakness that has put them in the single digits in marketshare.

    If BB10 is going to gain back those end users who have left, then it needs to offer a reason to do so. One of the way to do that is to remedy the weaknesses that caused its dramatic erosion in marketshare. And the way to do that is to offer apps in a manner approaching iPhone and Android.

    Or we could all just stay as we are. And there won't be a "new RIM" but rather an newer "old RIM."

    Yeah - kind of reminds me when ANGRY BIRDS wasn't available. People swore up and down that it's a stupid, pointless, needless game. Then it came to PlayBook and became the top selling app on any BlackBerry, even though the PlayBook userbase was much smaller.

    It is a positive sign that Instagram will be available on BB10! This is one of those apps that users across the most popular platforms (iOS and Android) love. Having instagram will be appealing to any potential BB10 buyers out there. It certainly lends a sense of relevancy to the new BB10 platform. When I get my BB10 phone, Instagram will be one of the apps I download.

    It's just the classic fable of the fox and the grapes. Things are are on other platforms but not on Blackberry are irrelevant or useless, but that magically changes when they come to Blackberry.

    Totally agree. People say it so confidently that if I didn't have friends who used Android and Apple devices, I would have easily believed. For me, "iPhone and Androids are toys" is #1 in "silly things people say on crackberry" followed by "I don't need that app. I can do the same by opening the browser and typing the website URL (so what if your toy can show the information few minutes earlier?)"

    Some here don't mind making ignorant comments but get seriously upset when blogs and tech websites post equally ignorant stuff about RIM.

    Though this sounds interesting, such things don't really work. Took part in few petitions for PlayBook. They will make an app for BB10 only if it makes sense for them financially.

    I ascribed to that line of thinking. That is the truth.
    Then I started using devices that offered apps.
    True example....last June I needed to go to get my car tags. I carried (as I always do) my BB and a non - BB phone....at that time it was the Skyrocket. I had forgotten to bring my insurance cards with me. When I was at the window, I asked if I could just send her the cards from the Geico app I had on my BB and my Skyrocket. She said yes, so I immediately went to my BB first. It could not load the card in order for me to send to her. I could see the info, but not load the card. I took out my Skyrocket, called up the insurance card, took a screenshot of it, and sent it to the woman behind the counter. She took it.
    That was one in a list of instances where my Skyrocket functioned to assist me through apps that were either non existent or sub par on the 9900.

    True story.

    My devices are there to serve me in the most expedient manner possible. Why call up a browser and go into a .com and then search for a card OR attempt to access it via a sub par app.

    BB *needs* to COMPETE by RISING to the challenge, not finding workarounds around its weaknesses.

    And before I give the wrong impression....I LOVE MY BB. But I am not blind to its deficiencies when compared to my SGIII or my iPhone. Lack of apps is a deficiency.

    ohhh.....and don't underestimate the sheer wonder of being able to order a hand tossed deep dish pizza with extra cheese and no meat via your iPhone or SGIII...Nirvana.....necessary? Absolutely not. Does it validate me as a human being??? Of course not. Convenient? Yah.. Do I choose devices in part to make things convenient? Ya betcha.

    I've used it and I'm not a fan. It will not even be considered on my BB10 device. I try to stay as far away from FaceBook as possible.

    I am the only one I know that doesn't use FaceBook. lol. All of my family and friends use it. I have 100+ people that bug me about it. It is never going to happen.

    I do know a lot of people that are ready to delete their FaceBook though, and lots that got rid of Instagram too.

    I maintain that few apps are intrinsically that valuable, but their AVAILABILITY can be a huge factor when users decide which platform to buy. Generally, in a sales situation a customer is constantly looking for a reason to say "no" to the sales rep, and "I can't possibly pick [generic device] because [generic app] isn't available" is a customer objection that's hard to counter.

    So, yes, I'm glad to see semi-concrete proof that Instagram is coming. I'll try it, though I don't expect to use it much, but I'm glad it's coming.
