Instagram for Windows Phone Twitter account goes live, real? We say no
So is it real or is it keeping-it-real-fake? Obviously if it is the real deal then that could only mean that an official Instagram for Windows Phone app is on the way very soon.
Of course, if it is fake then we have a hearty band of jokers or a lone actor looking for their 15 minutes of fame. The account’s only tweet, “Good things come to those who wait! :),” obviously gets the enthusiasts excited. However, in no time, folks responded with calls out that it was all a farce and understandably so.
What is our take on this? If we end up being wrong, we will take the heat, but we are going to call this fake all the way and we have several reasons to draw that conclusion (though we are going to follow the feed just in case).
We will follow this to see if anything comes of it, but we do not want to get your hopes up, so take with a grain of salt.
Finally, Nokia went out of its way to announce the arrival of Hipstamatic to the Windows Phone platform, a nice achievement given that it is not even available on Android yet. Plus, that app has the ability to tie into Instagram anyway. We could squeeze out a few more reasons, such as the lack of a native Facebook application for Windows Phone, but think our point is made pretty succinctly. If we end up being wrong, we will beg forgiveness and rejoice with the rest of you Windows Phone fans. We just do not want you passing out from holding your breath.

this update could have been released before july but remember they asked google to give them 6 months to implement CalDAV and CardDAV just to support google users, yes google slowed them down.
and remember all GDR's are minor updates

I understand the need for Instagram on our platform but I'm tired of the back and forth and infinite rumors. Plus I share my pictures on Facebook where half the picture doesn't have to get cut off due to the square format of Instagram. It'd be nice to have it but I don't want it if we have to beg and plead for it. It will not be the end of the world. Users should do as I have done and not put all their eggs in on OS. I use my iPod Touch to close the app gap and enjoy Imstagram and WatchESPN all the time.
