Update to 0.4.2 and languages did not appear

Which translation do you want to use? Which system language do you use? Currently translations are loaded automatically when the app starts, depending on the system language.

It is able to port for MeeGo ???!!

forgrimm's picture

@soheyl98: should be easy to port. But currently I have my focus on pushing SailfishOS. Also I don't have experience in developing for MeeGo.

But maybe someone else wants to port it?

forgrimm's picture

Good news - There is already the first big update coming soon. Don't expect less then: video support, liking, user profiles and following users ;-)

forgrimm's picture

It's here - Version 0.2 landed. Enjoy. And yes, I'm happy to hear feedback! What's good so far, what's not so good?

Like answered on tjc, I like this icon, but sadly instagram says, it is not allowed to use their icons in an unofficial client (icon):

The icon should be somehow different to state clearly that the client is not a official one.

NathanDotIt's picture

I'm working on it. It's the first time that i make an icon. It's simple, without using instagram icon. Give me some hour. Where i could send you?

forgrimm's picture

Cool - My mail is
Thank you!

NathanDotIt's picture

I just send to you the icon to your mail. I create it with ShadoWalker.

Hope you like it!

TMavica's picture

Maybe you go IRC find somebody help you make a new one
