Windows Phone version of Instagram gets update
While a number of third party Instagram apps appeared in the Windows Phone Store, nothing compares to the original Instagram app. And now that the beta version of it is available for Windows Phone users, there has been an update to version 0.2. This update brings the ability to tag people in photos and when uploading content to the site, you can use the names of friends and followers. The update also allows you to add photos to maps.
If you're a Windows Phone user, keep in mind that updates like this one will eventually bring the app to parity with the iOS and Android version of it. And of course there is the usual bug fixes and performance enhancements. Go ahead and take some time off to make sure that you've updated Instagram on your handset.

6tag kicks its ass.

I get why some people want to go with the OFFICIAL APP. But ON ANY PLATFORM, I think sometimes third party apps are FAR better than the official applications. Sometimes larger groups of developers cannot pay attention to detail... But sometimes official apps are better (more resources at their disposal.)

True for example look at the official Facebook App for Android, even though I use the browser for Facebook I wouldn't download their official app because it's been too buggy for the past nearly 2 years. So I uninstalled and haven't used it since.

6tag is the best Instagram app on WP... Are the same haters that post negative comments about WP, and obviously have never touched one,, the same people who work for PA❔

This app is terrible compared to 6tag. The only people that are going to care about it are those who have no clue 6tag exists and have been waiting for the one named "Instagram".
