Anybody who has been hoping for an iPad app for Instagram simply had their hopes dashed.
Right now, Marques Brownlee shot out a tweet saying “The 12 months is 2022 and there is nonetheless no correct Instagram app for iPad.” To a lot shock, Adam Mosseri, the Head of Instagram, responded to the tweet saying that “it is nonetheless simply not a large enough group of individuals to be a precedence.”
Yup, we get this one so much. It is nonetheless simply not a large enough group of individuals to be a precedence. Hoping to get to it in some unspecified time in the future, however proper now we’re very heads down on different issues.
When Brownlee pressed the difficulty, saying that they could have a large enough group within the app if it really existed, Mosseri defined that plenty of points stood in between their staff and an iPad app:
1/ every floor provides overhead; we help iOS, Android, www, and IG Lite, and Android is the biggest
2/ TikTok and YouTube are behemoths, folks share extra in messages than they do to Tales or Feed, so we have to adapt
3/ we’re leaner than you suppose
Whereas all of Mosseri’s causes are completely legitimate, it’s turning into much less and fewer acceptable that Instagram lacks an iPad app, particularly when virtually each different main social media app has one.
After all, Instagram has sufficient market share and affect that it does not actually need to construct one – it is doing simply high quality with out it.
