Third-Party Instagram Apps and Websites Cease to Work

InstagramLast November, Instagram announced much stricter rules for accessing its API, effectively putting an end to dozens of both legitimate and questionable third-party apps and websites that integrated with the photo sharing service on iPhone, iPad, Mac, and other devices.

Instagram began reviewing new and existing apps before granting full API access starting December 3, 2015, but the changes for apps created before November 17, 2015 only went into effect on Wednesday, rendering any remaining third-party apps that implemented photo feeds virtually useless.

Third-party websites that enabled users to search Instagram photos and hashtags, such as Gramfeed and Mixagram, also ceased functioning on June 1.

"Goodbye! As of June 1st 2016, Gramfeed will no longer function. To conform with the Instagram API Platform changes, Gramfeed had to be transitioned to a new service called Picodash and is focused on providing the search and social media management functionality to brands, publishers and journalists."

Instagram's new Platform Policy is available on its developer website.

Has Instagram given any good reason why they haven't created an iPad app?

It probably has to do with the iPad screen resolution being double than the pictures uploaded. It will look wierd.


How will it look weird? All the other Instagram apps on iPad look fine.
