BlackBerry 10 will not be getting native Instagram app

BlackBerry 10 will not be getting native Instagram app According to new reports, BlackBerry 10 users will not be getting a native Instagram app.
While the large smartphone ecosystem does have native apps for majors like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, Instagram is reaching that level of mainstream and the news, if accurate, is a blow to the fledgling platform.

Say the sources: "There will be no [native] Instagram for BB10 for now. Frankly, I'm not sure there will ever be."

For BB users, the company is simply working on porting its Android version, but that will not offer the same experience as an app built on BlackBerry's "Cascades" SDK.

When asked, BlackBerry had little to say. "We have a strong partnership and are actively engaged around Instagram support for BB10 but we do not have an availability date at this point."

Just got my BB Z10 last week. I luv it. It does everything i need it to do without having to deal with itunes or google play; without even having to jailbreak it...lol. Best investment I ever made... there's just so much flexibility with this device.

No I don't work for BB. I just prefer a little freedom with my toys. Sure, the BB store isn't anything to write home about but everything on this phone is fast and zippy. The new predictive keyboard rocks...sending messages is a breeze once the device learns you patterns. The miniHDMI port allows me allows me to project my screen, in full HD, onto a big screen...lol; luv that.

There are no apps, but everything on the phone is fast and zippy. LOL

Everything is "fast and zippy" on an iPhone or a decent Android device.

LOL. Where do you see there are no apps. This Phone has a ton pre-loaded. The store has more, no not quite as large a selection as iOS or Android but it's decent. I can't believe someone would say there are no apps...lol HA HA HA. You must be 12 to think they would ship the phone with no apps...lol

Wow, are you dumb. YOU must be 12.

Just the way you're talking about all the features of the phone I can tell you don't have a clue what you're talking about.

Enjoy your FailPhone.

Hey, it's your money. Flush it however you please.

Windows phone? Bwaa Haa Haa.

If they're lucky, maybe Crapberry and Windows Phone can corner 5% of the market - combined.
