    You mean third party client...

    And no, I'm not against it. These devs want to support the platform. Why should anyone be against it? Just because the apps they develop are not official? Well those official app devs are not interested. And well, these apps are actually legit full featured apps, unlike those App for XXX scams. So, I say we should just embrace these third party clients as their apps can only get better.

    I don't understand all these threads popping up asking why iGrann or Snap2Chat.

    If you don't like it, just don't use it. Why berate others about it? The devs worked really hard on the apps and they deserve some appreciation.

    Sad to say, some people are **** hurt that we can't get official apps. Instead of rejoicing that we have native 3rd party clients that perform just as well or better than the official apps, some people just complain. smfh

    Silly question. Yes, we want the clients.
    Who in their right mind wouldn't!?!?

    Erm, even official apps are just clients after all. No client, no service. 3rd party clients have a rather long tradition and are nothing new. They've been available for multiple services like Twitter, Facebook, ICQ, AIM, Live Messager, WordPress, Tumblr, Flickr, Dropbox and so on. Such clients are available for years on virtually every plattform.

    I really don't understand the "hate" or confusion which is currently turning up as apps like iGrann, Whine or Snap2Chat emerge to the public. On BB10 for example, we have multiple clients available for Twitter: The official one, Blaq, Neatly and Willow. Nobody ever complained once how developers even dare to create their own clients for the popular microblogging service.
    They also show why 3rd party apps can be such a great thing: They offer stuff the basic, official clients don't, especially on the UI front. Take Blaq for example, which has a radically different appearence in terms of UI compared to the default client. While some people fon't like Blaq, nobody is forced to use it and, more important, it has a large fanbase who are really preferring it over the default BB10 Twitter app.


    I heard on Windows Phone some of the 3rd party clients for Instagram are prefered over the available(?) beta client already, since they offer a different user experience which might appeal to more users. In any case, nobody is forced to use them. You simply get more choices to improve your experience and usability on your favourite services.
