Instagram: 1-year since Windows Phone update, still no iPad app

It's also been a year and a day since the last time the official Instagram app was updated for Windows Phone devices. After the app garnered enough popularity for Microsoft to create their own bootleg Instagram app, the team behind Instagram were encouraged to make their own - one that they've not updated for a whopping 12 months.
