iGrann Will Bring a Native Instagram Client to BlackBerry 10

iGrann_Splash_720x720We have all been patiently waiting for Instagram to give us a native client, so we can eliminate sideloading the Android ports.  But, that is a far cry from reality.  Well today Gaspertrix posted a post on the CrackBerry forums, stating that he is working on a native Instagram client for the BlackBerry 10 platform called iGrann.  One thing I noticed is that there will be a Q version released, that will help for the lack of functionality due to screen size using the ports available right now.

Here is what Gaspertrix had to say:

Well, I was going to post this the opening day of the BB Jam Asia, but I had an exam.

The first full native and free Instagram client for BlackBerry 10 is here.
It is not just an Instagram viewer, it is a full featured app.

What you can do with this app:

  • Register
  • Login
  • Recover Password
  • Edit Profile Information
  • Browse Feed
  • Browse Photos
  • Explore Popular
  • Search Users
  • Search Hashtags
  • View News
  • Upload Photos
  • Comment
  • Like / Unlike
  • Follow / Unfollow
  • Browse Profiles
  • Share
  • etc

What you can not do with this app:

  • Apply filters to photos (planned)
  • Browse Videos (planned)
  • Upload Videos (planned)
  • Receive push notifications

I am still finishing the design of some pages and will upload photos when they are finished.
I am testing the app using the simulator because I do not have a BB phone. When I get one to test, will upload a video.

In Login screen, last logged in user is saved, and when you touch on avatar, username is auto-filled and password is focussed for fast login.

I am open to opinions and suggestions.

And here are some screenshots of the progress:

  1. Very cool. I have the sideload but native would be sweet.

  2. With no Public API to post to the network, I wonder how much time it will take Facebook to shut down the app… unless they’ve whitelisted an unknown dev who simply asked?
