    I agree that this app should be reported to Instagram... it violates their api... he is using server side tricks to fool IG. He is making a profit off of a free service. The "he has to pay for servers etc." Excuse is crap... once he makes enough money to fund the back end do you think he will stop the profits? This is just wrong.

    I'm not really comfortable with the server side stuff. First, I don't trust for a second that this dev isn't storing login credentials -- so if you use this, make sure your IG password is unique (and I don't say this because I think the dev will access your stuff, I say this because I have little/no faith in the security of the dev's server environment. Sorry, I just don't.).

    Second, I'm not sure why the original IG filters take place sever side. See, this is what will get the app banned. Not having stuff uploaded by another app, attempting to masquerade as an official IG filter when it's not.

    IG has become more ma on third party clients as long as they don't violate the naming/icon IP and as long as they don't put too much strain on the IG server. I talked to the head of platform/API of IG when some of the WP8 apps were having issues (he happened to be in our office that say with other IG members) and it really did seem like that was an error. Pre-FB acquisition, IG was anal as hell about apps using an unofficial API (and Kevin and Mike would both out the kibosh on that stuff), but 18 months later, they are more lax as long as you follow the ToS. Storing photos and misrepresenting filters is probably a no no.

    I'm excited to see a third party client. I'm disappointed that it seems to be built in a way that isn't necessarily best for users. I'm not comfortable testing it with my own account without first monitoring the network to see what data is transmitted/where and whether it's ssl or not.

    This app violates both Instagram's ToS and BlackBerry's vendor agreement, it shouldn't be in BlackBerry World in the first place, also the dev making money out of someone else's work(Instagram's) is just not cool.

    Whatever, I'm sure Instagram will block it anyway.

    Just to clarify, I'm not a BlackBerry hater, I'm a BlackBerry dev with several apps in BlackBerry World(one of them was featured by CB two times last month).

    The difference is the Window Phone OS ones don't charge money.
    Get angry with BlackBerry and not at the dev for giving people an instagram app.

    Yes... I know it's a third party app... a third party app the violates IG's terms of service... And provably BlackBerry Worlds as well. The dev is using servers to intercept your photos (!!!!!) and spoof IG into thinking the traffic is not coming from a paid mobile app. A paid app that IG is receiving no funds from...

    While I have been speaking to the Dev he said he's ready to refund via PayPal so just send him your PayPal emails if you want a refund
    He also said he's working on fixing the app and that he needs some time
    I personally prefer BlackGram because it's UI simply matches Instagrams UI more therefore making it look more original and giving it the same feel
    I feel reporting the app is pointless as we don't know when iGrann is coming out and since instagram isn't making an app right now, why mess with other devs? This actually shows Instagram how desperate we all are for an app that we even paid for an app we could side load

    Someone should tell Alec Saunders that so he stops looking like he has no clue what his job really is on twitter.

    I've wanted an Instagram account for some time so looking forward to when the devs servers aren't as loaded so I can use the app.

    Also, the app is way too cheap ! It needs to be $5. If people moan at $3 I'd let them moan at 5.

    Hats off to the dev for making the app, even if it has a temporary lifespan.

    Also for the native IG Index app which isn't yet on BlackBerry10 I'd paid lots just so I didn't have to use it on an Android or i-phone.

    The app was lacking polish anyway. Should have had boxes around number of followers, following etc.
