No more ‘insta’ or ‘gram’ names for 3rd-party Instagram apps

Dieter Bohn at The Verge:

Instagram has sent an email to an app developer who utilizes its APIs, telling Luxogram that it will need to change its brand name so that it does not include either “insta” or “gram.”

Not great news for services like Statigram, Luxogram, Webstagram, Gramfeed, Instadrop, Instagallery & heaps more.

Guys, download my new app for popular photo sharing service [redacted]! I call it er… Unstagrom. Coming soon to South Africa.
