One thing we've all been eagerly awaiting for is the release of Instagram for BlackBerry 10. If you had a chance to read through our BlackBerry 10 apps forum today you'll be pleased to know that one developer, Gaspertrix, has taken up the gauntlet of coding his own native version. 

As he says, this is not just a viewer for Instagram, but a full featured application with a variety of features so that we no longer have to side load the Android bar file. A full list of current capabilities and those that are planned are shown below.

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

What you can not do with this app:

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

While it is still a work in progress, the developer is currently working on the design via a simulator and is open to suggestions. He has even stated the application will be free upon launch. Based on the initial screenshots I for one am looking forward to using it. You can follow the progress and participate in the discussion at the link below. Also, be sure to let us know what you think in the comments.
