He also said that Instagram “would like to build an iPad app”, but they haven’t come around to do that.
Comments aren’t very friendly for that post, I’ll tell you that much. Instagram is by far a mobile-oriented activity and it’s one of the rare cases of the software modifying hardware, not the other way around.
