This is messed up! Instagram shuts down access for app that lets you ‘be’ other users

    After had gained over 40,000 members in just 8 eight days and hitting #1 in the apple store at one point, Instagram revokes the app's API privileges by the name of 'being' where you were basically able to view your Instagram friends/celebrities newsfeed through their point of view. Pretty messed up when your app's functionality was based off an API, lol.

    What's your opinion on this?

    That's actually a pretty cool idea from the developer.

    Too bad it's gone now.
