There’s no official Instagram app available for BlackBerry 10 right now. Users have to make do with an Android port by sideloading the APK on their BB10 device. Time and again it has been said that the official app will probably not be coming soon. This was reiterated by BlackBerry’s VP of developer relations at the Jam Asia 2013 conference last week. He suggested that users find an “alternative.” A third party Instagram client for BlackBerry 10 will soon be making its way into the BlackBerry World, and it brings an impressive list of features.
iGrann is a full featured native Instagram client for BlackBerry 10. Users will be able to register, login, edit profile information, browse feeds and photos, explore the popular page, search for users and hashtags as well as share pictures through it. Not only that, they’ll also have the ability to upload photos, make comments and even like and unlike them. However, at launch, users won’t be able to apply filters to photos, browse or upload videos or receive push notification. The developer says that all of these features, except push notifications, are planned and will be made available in later versions. iGrann is said to be free at launch, though it is not said exactly when it will be appearing in the BlackBerry World.
