I feel the older version before 2.0 was better. Could upload photos, scroll down all notifications (which this one got cut by half compared to the last one), and worst of all, even on Wifi, eats my mobile data up too quickly. 1.9 was much better though videos can be uploaded from another app. I wish you could release 1.9 as an option giving people a choice between app versions preferred, especially for mobile data usage.

Love Instance! Easy to use, filters pulled right from Instance, and still allows for creating awesome posts and settings. Who needs Instagram? Just as good if not better. Paid the cash because I used the free version for awhile and loved it.

Looks great, uploads are fast, and posting to Twitter works quickly. Live tile is not functional and all settings for background updates are enabled. Other than that, awesome app. Update: dropped a star because there still isn't support for viewing videos. Updated account into and can't login at all anymore. 6tag is more efficient and is regularly updated while the paid version of Instance seems to get nothing.

Nice UI, easy to use, and offers a nice collection of filters. However, the app is not fully functional: Whenever I try to find friends via Facebook or Twitter the app crashes or draws a blank screen.

Great design and layout, fairly zippy performance. Love the Metro interface. Just fix the random crashes (especially when clicking on a profile, usually private) and we can call it perfect.

Closes itself after commenting, sometimes comments under pictures show up in big black blotches. Tends to crash more frequently when using cellular data. Otherwise, it's everything you need and looks beautiful. *UPDATE 6/6: Everything works fine now except for a few things; Stops showing comments after some use and stops successfully following new users after some time as well. *UPDATE 6/6 #2: Seems to either take forever (too impatient to wait) or just doesn't upload an image at all when the caption contains a lot of text. *UPDATE 6/13: Still just gives up trying to upload a picture with a lot of text in the caption. Is there a character limit? And the app closes itself after heavy use. *UPDATE 8/2: Doesn't seem to upload pictures with captions that include apostrophes.

For those of you having trouble with your log in, uninstall and reinstall corrected it for me. however, now my filters don't appear before I post and even without pictures, my images aren't being posted.

Guys, this is the best "instagram" you can get on Windows..at least for lumia 920. It has a really similar layout to instagram and it lets you perform all the actions the official application would. (like,comment, accept/decline requests, etc..) The only down side is uploading rectangular pics but if you have instagraph, just make as if you were going to upload it using that app but instead of uploading it just save it after customizing it. Then just go back to instance and upload it. Easy as that 😉

I sometimes have trouble loading the app and uploading photos and I think the lack of instagram video is a major gripe. Filters are a little bit lacking but I do have other apps for editing photos. And tagging in comments is a bit of a chore.
