Published by at

I reported on Winsta UWP, the unofficial Instagram client for Windows 10 Mobile, many times in 2018, including the initial reviewfirst big update, and most recent update. And it keeps getting better and better, for Windows 10 phones, tablets and laptops. v1.4.2 here adds multi-account support and a whole heap more.

Here's what's new, for v1.4.2, since the last time we featured Winsta UWP, back in March:

  • Added Waveform for Voice messages in directs
  • Added Multi-Account support
  • Fixed scrolling bug on touch screens
  • fixed explore bug
  • Fixed a bug in logout that cause not deleting session and added migrator for new update.
  • Fixed a null reference bug on stories without slider,question and etc.
  • Fixed a bug on not loading stories, user info, and more
  • Fixed a bug keep playing video stories on watching story viewers
  • Fixed an issue that cause failing on save posts
  • Fixed an issue causing white hamburger menu on dark them in battery saver mode.
  • Fixed crash at launch issue on new installs
  • Added option to send direct from User profile page
  • Added support for PNG format
  • Added support for adding poll to stories
  • Added support for viewing polls result
  • Added support for scroll to top by tapping on Winsta Logo in feeds, explore and some other pages
  • Fixed scaling issue for posting images in stories in original size
  • Fix for unavailable shared stories
  • minor improvements to directs
  • Fixed an issue in marking stories as seen
  • Fixed an issue in Live player that prevent from clicking back
  • Bug-fixes to story view and Live player view
  • Little UI improvements

To recap, that's all just in the last month, Winsta UWP has a very active developer and Insider user community here on Telegram. (Access the latter through Unigram UWP!)


On the translucent hamburger menu, there's now a 'Switch Account' function - ideal if you want to manage/use more than one Instagram account; (right) here's how voice messages appear (here quoted in the Winsta Insiders group)...


You can now, among several other new features, message other Instagram users directly from their profile page. Tip: follow 'rafeblandford' to see what Rafe is up to!

As I stated before, Winsta UWP is highly recommended. There's a lot to like about Winsta's speed and UI, it's a breath of fresh air - you can directly encourage the developer by buying Winsta, since it's a couple of quid in the Microsoft Store (and on offer at the moment). Go on, if you want to see this updated further, buy the developer a cup of coffee in this way...
