None of the apps are any good. I don’t understand why Facebook doesn’t release an iPad optimised version. It may be a lot of work to make the existing app universal but they can very well just do an iPad app on the side.

No way would it be a lot of work if they did even the bare minimum and upscaled their **** to iPad size.

It's madness that such a popular service doesn't have an iPad app. I use the web version or the blown up iPhone version. Neither are ideal.

Why would anyone in their right mind want or need to use Instagram on a 11” or 13” display ? Just asking I have a guess but yeah.

I upload my drawings to instagram, should I copy it to my phone when it’s ready? Why? Why don’t create a damn ipad PORT for this damn app?

I follow artists I like on Instagram. I would rather look at their work on the larger iPad. It just makes sense for there to be an iPad version of Instagram since it is popular with artists & photographers. There's an iPad verison of Tumblr.

Bc that’s the device we’re using. It’s not hard to figure out if you have half a brain. It’s a social network built around photography and art, so why WOULDN'T people want to view on their iPad?
 

Fireproof!

Agreed. It's really irritating. You'd think with FB's $$ and resources, they could carve out a minuscule bit and just get it done.

Insta was never meant for tablets. No one is taking photos with their tablets to upload to insta. I do agree, even though it started as a camera app, times have changed to where people edit photos/videos on tablets or macs/pc, transfer the content to their phones, then post. It would be easier if facebook optimized the app for ipad, it would be a convince for everyone.

I don’t think he devs want to spend time making a standalone app for ipad when they have their mobile division across several platforms to focus on, to appease a small groups out of their entire base
