Ok, this is annoying!
It seems that Instagram is actively monitoring and deleting images uploaded from the excellent 3rd party Instagram app for Windows Phone.
The developer of Instance is at a bit of a loss as to how Instagram are tracking the images, as can be see from his tweet here, so doesn’t look like he will come up with a fix anytime soon either.
Windows Phone does not have an official Instagram app of course, and the “will they/won’t they” build one saga shows no signs of getting an answer yet, so this is a major blow for Windows Phone users.
This is such a shame, as Instance is a truly excellent Instagram app, which had kept lots of Windows Phone users happily Instagraming and it would be a big loss if this continues.
It’s also pretty bad form of Facebook – surely their energies would be better spent on building an official app, not crippling existing ones. In fact the whole Instagram/Windows Phone saga is rather puzzling, given Microsoft own a chunk of Facebook and Facebook use Bing.
So come on Facebook & Microsoft – sort it out!!!
