Unofficial Instagram app released for Windows Phone 8
While Instagram is busy avoiding Windows Phone 8's constant #2instawithlove flirting, a third party app has stepped up to provide the Instagram experience on Windows Phone 8. Called Itsdagram, the free app allows users to register for an Instagram name, post photos, comment, like, follow, and even find Facebook friends. Check out the app's details in the Windows Phone 8 Store.
Google asks Microsoft to remove YouTube app
Windows Phone 8 was thrilled to announce an official YouTube app last week. The excitement quickly turned to panic as Google demanded the removal of the new app from the Windows Store, citing a lack of ads. Google claimed that the YouTube app for Windows Phone 8 undermines the content creator's ability to collect revenue (and, lets be real, Google collects cash from the YouTube ads, too.) Microsoft has since responded to Google, saying it is "more than happy" to include ads. For all the juicy details and bland legal jargon, go to The Verge.
