Please be aware that flipStagram is an Instagram browser, especially designed to bring the Instagram experience on tablet devices like the BlackBerry® PlayBook™. You can NOT upload pictures and you can NOT create new Instagram accounts with flipStagram. This is caused by the fact that the Instagram API, on which flipStagram is based on, simply doesn’t allow picture upload and account creation. So, please be kind and do not give flipStagram a bad rating for that. To create a new account or to upload pictures, you have to use the official Instagram app.
