Instago

Developer: dirksonguer

Beginner: No
Platform: Harmattan


Application Description:
Instago is an Instagram client for Meego / Harmattan. It lets you browse through the popular photos stream of Instagram, view photos in detail and take a look at the user pages.

As such it’s a simple viewer at the moment. Now obviously the intersting part of Instagram would actually be able to upload images. However I’m not going to reverse engineer posting images to Instagram nor will I try. Instead, here is what I’m going to do:

Step 1: Implement as much features as possible without actually authenticating myself (via OAuth). Test it, have a beta and then push it to the Nokia Store. This is the current state of the application (well, the beta part).

Step 2: Implement user authentication and have all the interactive features (like searching, friends, likes, news stream and so on). Test it, have a beta and push the update to the Nokia Store.

Step 3: Contact Instagram and beg to be approved for official upload support

I started developing the application from scratch about three weeks ago in my spare time. The progress is documented on my N9 blog here: http://n9development.tumblr.com/

Also I’m pushing the code to a Google Code project here: http://code.google.com/p/n9-developm...runk%2Finstago

Download Instructions:
You can download the current version of the application (v0.0.2) here: http://code.google.com/p/n9-developm....0.2_armel.deb

Other versions can be found in the download section: http://code.google.com/p/n9-developm...downloads/list

Please note that you have to allow installations from other sources than the Nokia Store. See details here: http://techprolonged.com/index.php/2...ego-harmattan/.
