BlackBerry Instagram app shoot-out: BlackGram vs. iGrann vs. Instagram for Android

Which one should you install on your BlackBerry 10 phone?

Now that we can load up the honest-to-goodness Android version of Instagram onto BlackBerry with a bare minimum of hassle, it's time to put it up against the native apps that have come to BlackBerry World as a stopgap: iGrann and BlackGram.

We've got instructions on how to install Instagram for Android on BlackBerry using the latest methods, but you're probably wondering if it's worth the switch if you're already comfortable with the apps purpose-built for BlackBerry. We're going to run through the nitty-gritty of each app help you figure out which of these Instagram apps you should be using. 

 

Editing

Editing Instagram pictures on BlackBerry

For editing, BlackGram provides a shortcut to the native photo editing app, and rotation in-app, along with access to all of the classic Instagram filters, though you can't get a live preview of what the filter actually looks like on your photo. iGrann doesn't offer access to the Instagram filters at all, and jumps right to the native photo editor, which is probably just as well.

The Android version of Instagram offers live preview of the classic filters and the usual editing tools that you won't find on BlackBerry, such as tilt-shift. The only real downside I've found on this front is that it uses the Android file picker for preexisting photos, which is hardly a deal-breaker. The official Instagram app might win this one by a hair, though it's a bit moot if you do your editing elsewhere before uploading anyway.

 

Features

Settings for Instagram apps for BlackBerry

Obviously the Android version of Instagram is going to be loaded up with all of the latest features, since it's coming right from the source. The biggies here are direct messaging, video uploads, and the picture map. It trickles down into smaller stuff too, like tagging people's faces in pictures and sharing out to smaller social networks like Tumblr, Foursquare, and Flickr. There are a few things the native BlackBerry apps can do that the official Instagram app doesn't, though. Namely, there's an easy mechanism to save images and videos, if so desired. iGrann even has a unique ReGrann feature, which replicates and posts someone else's update. 

iGrann and BlackGram still offer all of the major features though, like finding and following new users, viewing videos in the timeline, and leaving comments and likes. BlackGram is missing out on a few fronts, such as being able to share new photos to Facebook, full profile editing, and not populating the Explore tab with popular public images. In any case, the Android version of Instagram wins out here, hands-down.

 

Native integration

Instagram for BlackBerry apps

iGrann wins as far as feeling like a BlackBerry app goes. Instagram for Android and BlackGram do not make any use of the Hub, while iGrann lets you know when you get new followers. Unfortunately, that doesn't extend to notifications of new comments, which is sorely missing from every app. BlackGram loses a major point for not plugging into the native Share menu, while iGrann and even the Android port of Instagram do. 

Despite the inclusion of direct messages with the Android version, it's still not where it needs to be since you aren't getting notifications of new private messages in the Hub, even if the app is open. Smaller touches, like offering a shortcut to the native BBM smileys in the Instagram comment section and proper Active Frame previews from your news feed, really cements iGrann's BlackBerry feel. 

 

Performance and presentation

Instagram for BlackBerry app news feeds

In terms of sheer smoothness of navigation, it's a close race. BlackGram smartly loads lower-resolution versions of images in your news feed, and bumps them up to high resolution afterwards. This makes scrolling very smooth. By contrast, BlackGram's comment section is very choppy loading and hiding, while iGrann has no problems at all. iGrann also loaded the fastest out of the three, while Instagram for Android took the longest. 

iGrann lacks a bit of gloss for animations. Double-tapping a picture favorites it, but doesn't have the smooth animation found in BlackGram and Instagram for Android. BlackGram also enjoys nice loading animations and image pop-ups when viewing an individual user. On the flip side, the bottom icons in iGrann are sharper and smaller than BlackGram's.

Even though the Android port doesn't strictly follow the BlackBerry UI look and feel, it's not using the usual Android Holo standards, and actually looks closer to a BB10 app as is. There are even some nice touches that the native alternatives don't have, such as floating usernames that follow you as you scroll down through your news feed. It's a little bewildering that Instagram for Android and BlackGram both use a static refresh button in the top-right, while iGrann uses a much more elegant pull-to-refresh mechanic.

Overall, BlackGram's interface remains stark in a few places, while both iGrann and Instagram for Android 

 

​Instagram for Android

Pros
  • Direct message, video upload, and picture map support
  • Original Instagram filters with previews
  • Full social network sharing options
Cons
  • Long boot-up time
  • Requires installation over Snap

iGrann

Pros
  • Tight integration with Hub and share menu
  • Native look and feel
Cons
  • No access to Instagram filters
  • No video uploading

BlackGram

Pros
  • Fast scrolling
  • Smooth animations
Cons
  • Doesn't plug into Share menu
  • Missing Facebook sharing
  • Costs $1.99
Bottom line

Instagram for Android is going to offer the most fully-featured experience no matter how much the other two play catch-up. There may be a few inconsistencies in the Android version (not to mention requiring a sideload, which can be too much of a pain for novice users), and iGrann and BlackGram might feel like they belong on BlackBerry more, but the Android runtime is robust enough to to offer all the features you need to stay up to date with the official version of Instagram. iGrann and BlackGram certainly deserve a high-five for stepping up to the plate and making something when Instagram couldn't be bothered to make an officially-supported version for BB10, but ultimately shoehorning the Android version in is good enough. 

If you want something that feels like it belongs on a BlackBerry or couldn't be asked to go through the trouble of getting the Android version on there, I'd pick iGrann over BlackGram, especially since iGrann is donation-supported, but that's just me. Where do you guys stand? Which method of following Instagram do you prefer?

iGrann, considering video uploading, headless notifications, IG direct and IG filters are already planned for future updates.

I like seeing a good app grow even better over time, and I feel like I should not support IG official for taking the lazy way out.

BlackBerry 10 signed.

I agree. Support the native developer and send him a little cash. BBW first and well if you have too Google store second.

bbmtna

I'm with this guy. Well not really with him you know, I agree with his Instagram views and those of Igrann.

To recap, not with Glenn, sure he may be nice, but not with him, I agree with the use of Igrann

once that happens, it's over...

for me, just barely; Instagram > iGrann >>> BlackGram...

I have both installed, and use iGrann when I want to explore cuz the pull refresh is way better, I also use it when I need to make comments so I don't have to cut and paste, but regular IG when I'm doing mostly everything else for now...

I wasn't either until I downloaded iGrann...I'm not the most active user but I like the app, it functions smoothly but using the Q10 I tend to have to use the space bar to scroll through pis or the page will skip on me or maybe I'm improperly instagraming.

Chanlion

IGrann, you can't beat the speed.

celalagrili

Prefer Igrann. Dark theme is perfect ;)

vishalsheth83

I think a couple of missing points (unless i missed them, and if i did, i apologize) for iGrann is the ability to save images and videos to your device, as well as ReGrann a post. I know those things aren't native for Instagram, but those inclusions are pretty great. Those should definitely be added in the "Pro" list.

Simon Sage

Good points! BlackGram can save items too, though it's a bit more roundabout for saving videos. 

Anik91

You don't need Snap to get Instagram for Android, if you're on 10.2.1 of course.

Posted via CB10

BerryRipe

I didn't realize iGrann did all that nor did I look into settings to know about the dark theme.

iGrann for the win!

Igrann is the best. Downloading, regranning, zoomin in on photos, dark theme and it will have video hub integration, IG direct and the IG filters

The best because it's made for blackberry?

J09GTSGraphite

I never had Instagram before I downloaded IGrann. I like IGrann.

My question lies within that say an update for Instagram for Android becomes available, does the android app notify you of that update available, where in BlackBerry World, it would notify that there's an update available for IGrann.

Posted via CB10

scalemaster34

If you use one of the App Store or SNAP, from within those applications you can check for updates. But no you will not get a notification.

ryanlrobinson

I've never really used my Instagram account, but have tried both iGrann and Blackgram. Blackgram kept forgetting my password for some reason so that's the main reason I gave up on it, but iGrann might convince me to actually use my account.

Taigatrommel

While I still don't use Instagram at all, I think a short sidenote about QWERTY compatibility in terms of UI and presentation would've been nice for all Q10/Q5 users out there! AFAIK, the Android sideload always had some displaying trouble on the keyboard devices, while iGrann on the other side has been built from scratch to make everything look nice on those.

I keep seeing that Instagram for Android has to be sideloaded via Snap but I didn't have to sideload. It works great though.

Elis Boci

I don't think you need to sideload Instagram. At least I didn't. I downloaded it directly from the 1mobile app store. It is definitely the most feature rich of the three but it does have a few bugs.

When I comment on a post using the Instagram port it frequently tends to fail and requires me to "try again" two or three times before it succeeds.

I have to agree with the majority of people here though that iGrann is the better choice between the two. Hub integration, light and dark theme and the speed make up for not having all the features of the port.

Ohh.. got you. So far, I haven't seen that bug yet. I downloaded from apk train. Thanks

I found none of the apps integrate with the share menu well. When I share a pic with Igrann or IG app it just opens the app, it doesn't even load the pic or the editing page. I've been using both. I also hate using file picker or Android gallery to select pics. So cumbersome.

I bought blackgram when it first came out, since it was first on BBW... thought it would be better than igrann... then the problems I found, every time I tried to post a comment it asked me for my IG password, and seconds later an email from IG asking me to change the password. Then often I was logging in every time even when I select the "remember me" option in the app. When I downloaded the beta4 of igrann it totally blew me up, I love it since then... now blackgram is out of my app grid and donate the same 3$ to the igrann developer and I'm totally happy with that. Waiting for future updates!

when I can finally record a video with an IG client and directly upload it,, that one wins for me. Until such a time comes I cannot say which is better, well free is always better. Take from tht what you will.

natalee123

so i definitely choose igrann as a native app, a big hand goes out to the developer but android instagram is a bit more complete with notifications and video viewing!

also won't instagram developers be a little bothered by this unofficial (igrann or blackgram) app that where using?

I have had instagram side loaded on my Z10 for months now. However, I am not a power user. I was curious as everyone in the forums was lamenting the lack of instagram for BB10. I have uploaded some pictures and follow some friends. I loaded Igrann right after loading up the official 10.2.1 OS. I must say I love it more than the side load. I have deleted the side load, and will now use Igrann exclusively. I support devs who create for blackberry.

Igrann and Blackgram best. For one reason alone these developers are wise to support BlackBerry. We will support the developers.

When official Instagram comes they have lot catching up to do. Their CEO says they do not support NEW OS until it's 1 to 2 years in market. Ridiculous answer!!! BlackBerry is now in 2nd year!

In the future IGrann may take the throne. It looks like APP that will uphold "Made to Work" Legacy of a BlackBerry. Competition is good. May the best developer win.

I like iGrann as it was a native app for BlackBerry 10 but I used Instagram more as my iGrann failed to link well with my Facebook for BlackBerry but every thing goes well with Instagram...

Hopefully the iGrann dev will fix this bugs ASAP so I can stick with it as I feel we should used our BlackBerry with apps that builds for BlackBerry 10

Just my 2cents

Have any of you that are using instagram and igrann getting your accounts disabled for breaching instagram terms? I've had two accounts disabled after only 3 photos
.. my dog my friends and a family photo. I figure it has to be instagram sensing a log in from a different server and flagging it as spam.

If any of you are using both without issue I'd appreciate knowing how. Are you logging out of one before using the other? I just don't want another account disabled.

If you had to chose only one which one would it be?

Thanks for helping an instagram newb out.

With the same advance system that we see in igrann

I was not on Instagram before, now I am, via iGrann. Tried it, liked it. Think I will enjoy using it and watching how it develops.

Igrann is actually cool, I just don't know how to search for people

I tried Blackgram because it was first and it was very awkward with no updates offered in the few months I had it. It also queues the uploads and often fails at posting for whatever reason. I have just downloaded Igrann (I was following the developer for a while waiting) and I am happy to see it works much more smoothly. I have only sideloaded onto my Playbook so I'm glad I didn't have to get back into that can of worms.

ps - complaining about an app that costs two bucks is ridiculous. If two bucks is a game-changer for you it's time to start questioning your life decisions. Like how did you even afford this phone?
