UPDATED: Somebody Needs to Fix Instagram Posts On BlackBerry Browsers

Comments

UPDATE: Nice! This has been fixed.

We’ve known about the Facebook acquisition of Instagram for some time now and yesterday, the company acknoledged the acqusiiton on its corporate news section with a post titled “Welcoming Instagram to Facebook“. In the post, Facebook says, “We also can’t wait to work with the talented Instagram team to improve the mobile experience.” Now, we’ve talked before on the site how the Instagram experience on Facebook for iOS is beautiful and lacking on BlackBerry, but what about the simple fact that the service is basically incompatible with the BlackBerry Browser? Instagram seems to have a beef with BlackBerry that makes their service look terrible on BlackBerry Browsers, but maybe now with Facebook behind them, they might take the small amount of effort required to make their service compatible with BlackBerry Browsers.

The article highlights some of the elements that make Facebook for BlackBerry such a bad app. After having brought this up countless times with some of the people at RIM, the real conclusion is that perhaps Facebook should never have been made by RIM.

Because the app is built by RIM, the company has to wait on Facebook releasing APIs that support critical features such as Event Management. Ideally, RIM wouldn’t have to wait on this and would be given source code under NDA, but this isn’t the case. Considering all the bad PR around RIM and the fact that the company is downsizing to buckle down for BlackBerry 10, it doesn’t look like the OS 5-7 version of Facebook for BlackBerry is going to get up to par with the iOS version any time soon.
