iGrann Instagram client for BlackBerry 10 rolls out beta 2 release

If you've been beta testing iGrann on your BlackBerry 10 device, you'll want to go ahead and grab a USB cable and fire up your sideloading tools. Beta 2 has been made available for download and this release has quite a few bug fixes and new features implemented into it based on user feedback. As noted on the iGrann Twitter account, here's what has been fixed and added:

  • Fixed search function from Search page
  • Fixed some issues with uploads
  • Fixed forgot option
  • Login design changed
  • Loading more design changed
  • Fixed issue with long caption in modern UI
  • Profiles enabled
  • Ask for Upload Mode when Upload button is clicked
  • Bar is hidden now when you scroll in comments page (Q10)
  • Added locations
  • Added Location page
  • Username and Hashtag tapping working fine now
  • Added Likers page

​That's a pretty slick update all around if I say so myself. I've not yet had a chance to give it a go but it's there for testing should you decide to take it for a spin. I should note, that where this app is a beta there is almost surely to be some bugs so keep that in mind and don't be afraid to offer feedback if you encounter any.

Also of note, where this is not an official app there is the slight chance Instagram can disable access from the app, or at the very least, cause you to need to perform a password reset on your account. If you're not willing to risk that then best to pass this one up.

iGrann Instagram client for BlackBerry 10 rolls out beta 2 release

98 Comments

Great update! Hope the developer keeps going with more features and bug fixes. This is already my favorite client amongst the sideload, Blackgram, and Instago.

I'm going to use the regular side loaded android until this is not in beta. I bought blackgram when it came out and it's junk. I refuse to use an Instagram client that goes through a dev's personal servers. Major security flaw, and also potential capacity flaw in the future. Let alone that it doesn't work well. I got my refund from BlackBerry World and deleted it. With that being said, iGrann appears a lot more promising. I am looking forward to it being in BlackBerry World and hopefully ditching another sideload.

All non-official Instagram app MUST go through an intermediate server. This includes iGrann and BlackGram.

Forget this sideloading crap....lets go bb...get it together...just out it on bbworld already...and make sure it's free...just like every other android/apple offer

Posted via CB10

I'm also waiting on the official release although I've stayed up to date with the entire process! I SO cannot wait to delete my sideloaded IG! He's doing such an awesome job with listening to the community and giving us almost in stand feedback! Let's keep the good times rolling and continue to help make this app into perfection through betas before the official launch!! :D

This iGrann is far better than the Android version. It completely blows it out of the water. If you can sideload it, trust me, you won't regret it. Not for a second.

Blackgram= garbage

Posted via CB10

Have you used Blackgram? I bought it knowing I can get a refund from my carrier billing, safe to say it works. In my opinion it works well, lets me feel like I have instagram thats native. Will be trying this soon though

Posted via CB10

I have tried BlackGram and it keeps screwing up my login cred. Even after the most recent update. I will stick with the side loaded Instagram until something better comes out.

I don't like when it "opens a window" when I click to.see a video...it should just play in the same page

Well, for one, if the app needs to be deleted and/or reinstalled for some reason, it will be able to be done either from BlackBerry World or from a backup; no more need to sideload! And another thing is a more fluid and faster user experience. Also, less chance of draining the battery. I've noticed that a few of my sideloaded apps will suck my battery dry because they're constantly trying to contact the Google store or some other blocked API in the background; the two biggest culprits on my Z10 right now being "Pet Rescue Saga" and "Waze."

Great job on this!! Beta 2 rocks!

Have the first beta loaded on my Z10 and I love it. So much smoother than the sideloaded instagram. Definitely going to get this update tomorrow.

BIG thanks to the developer for making such a great app and making it for free!!

Please speed it up to bb world..ill wait for official..more secure.. moving faster blackberry..

Posted from my large Z30 with CB10

This is a great update. Fits the OS ui, loads quickly, lets you view profiles and likes and hashtags. When the filters and video editing comes in I'm thinking the sideload will be a thing of the past.

Just tried this, works fantastic. Great job by the dev. Highly recommend. Looking forward to it's arrival in BlackBerry World, with ability to upload videos coming soon.

Posted with my  Q10

@qbyrd21, unzip it. Unsure if all sideload need unzipping but this is a problem I had on Beta 1.

Posted via my CB Q10

Why pay 2.99 when you can get this beta version! The updates keep getting better and better!

Posted via CB10

Yes! We need more awesome developers like this. BlackBerry should have hired them months ago!! Instead of buying jets.

I can't wait for it to roll to bbworld

Thumbly posted from my Q10

The only thing I'm worried about is that people will become impatient and annoyed with sideloading and just download that BlackGram or whatever. This is an amazingly put together app that ANY and EVERYBODY Needs to be patient and pay attention to!! I just can't wait for the official launch!! :D I don't want to sideload another app tho so I'm following the forums and keeping up with the bugs that the Dev is working tirelessly on fixing!!! :D :D

Tried both of igranns betas and it keeps getting better. Had a few minor issues with the first probably user error on my part but the second beta is awesome and works great especially for a beta

Posted via CB10

Great so far! Love that it has the dark theme option baked in :)

This app kicks butt. THANKS for making it available. Beats Instagram sideload all to heck so far. I can finally comment without keyboard issues. :) Kudos to the devs for sure!

Uumm failure 533 Application-Requires-System: version forbidden, want (10, 2, 0, 0) have (10, 1, 0, 4633)
that's what I got when I tried to sideload it through the chrome extension...any suggestions?

When someone sends me a request to follow me on ig I'm not allowed to accept it on this...I still gotta open the sideloaded instagram....guess that wil be fixed in the nex update?

Posted via CB10

Nice work dev.

No problems at all, interface looks polished and best of all it is native!

Keep up the good work.

Posted via CB10

The developer is an insane genius! It's flawless! As soon as it's official, I'm sold. Already uninstalling official Android Instagram sideload.

I used my Z10 to create this CrackBerry madness!

Just as feedback : posting a picture with a comment while posting stops it with an error
