Instagram, which is a very popular app on Android, still doesn’t have an official app for Blackberry 10. However, it has been possible to use Instagram on your Blackberry. You can always install and use the Android APK on your Blackberry OS 10.2.1++. Though, Android apps run better on BB 10.3.1 . If you want a full feeling of Instagram on your BB 10 device and you’re not that comfortable with running the android version on your device, we now have Instagram clients built for Blackberry 10 available. I’ll be talking about the recently launched client which is inst10.
Inst10 is actually not new to some Blackberry users as we’ve seen the beta version before the official release. But here we are now, with the official release. If you don’t know about inst10, it is a Rich and full featured Instagram client built for the Blackberry 10. It lets you share photos, videos, and all you can on the normal Instagram app, and a lot more. Inst10 is beautiful and very much customizable. All features of Instagram you see on other platforms are available on inst10. See the screenshot below.
