    Do photos on Instagram still have metadata on them that show what kind of device took the picture?

    EDIT: I checked Facebook and it doesn't show what kind of camera was used... Instagram probably strips that out too...

    Permission from Instagram is needed.

    Sign this if you haven't already. It's not whether you actually use it or not it's about having the option for the people that do. This is be huge for WP as a whole and should not be discarded even if you hate Instagram with a passion.

    At least this way we can say we tried and the people behind Instagram can't say they're not making an app bc there aren't enough users. It's something lol

    I think it's random, different petitions popped up for me.

    Other than the note on this FAQ page (FAQ • Instagram) Instagram seem to have been very quiet about WP. That FAQ refers to WP7 so presumably was written a while back.

    Took me a while to find it on their website but you can email them here: Email Us • Instagram Help Center - so it might be worth emailing them to request the app. The more interest they see the more likely they are to consider making it!

    (Not sure what you'd select as the Subject from that drop down list...maybe "Can't log in" since WP users can't log in!)

    I'd pick Business Enquiries myself, as it is to do with business (I.E. the business of accessing their services on Windows Phone)

    I emailed Stephen elop about it and he said they're trying really hard to get in on our platform. I wasn't expecting a response but it is reassuring

    Makes me wonder whether development has not even started or they are just keeping tight-lipped. Belfiore promised Pandora back at the WP8 launch ... it's still not here

    Like Max Black said, "Instagram, it's like Twitter for people who can't read".

    Belfiore promised Pandora "in early 2013" so they still have time to keep that promise.

    Well said! This is exactly the case with my gf. She's looking for a new phone and as soon as she found out there is no instagram she lost interest in WP.

    I can't believe after all that has been said about the issue that some people (on this board and all over the net) are continuing to blame Microsoft for the lack of an Instagram app. Do they think that MS is holding out on an Instagram app on purpose? How much can MS do if Instagram does not allow access to their services.

    The fact of the matter is that for whatever reason Instagram does not want to make an app for WP. It could be that they want money from Microsoft, they don't have the resources to make and support an app, they are waiting for WP to get a bigger market share, or some outside player is getting in Instagram's ear and telling them to avoid WP.

    I have read a lot of rumors that the head of Instagram isn't a fan of Microsoft so that could be an issue. I don't know how much truth there is to that but it is another possibility.

    Why don't people use the third party applications of instagram like metrogram and upload their photos via the instagram website on their desktop?

    I thought it was because BB can use the android marketplace now.... or maybe they can share apps with a line of code change or something. Not sure how that works though.

    3 posts in and all you've done is mock the community and trash WP. Let's just skip the warning and go straight to perman-banned.

    Oh wow sorry I lied, you can only view and make a account on the instagram website. BUT! You can download this Android emulator on your PC and upload your pictures that way. Here is a link to that.

    **** sake was just about to post about that myself. I'm using Bluestacks myself. Great workaround. Though had to ask my favourite artist for a bit of help with using it, and I'm a freaking tech *****! I should know everything about it!
