The Instagram app is broken, and now you have to figure out how to fix it.
In an interview with TechCrunch, Instagram co-founder and CEO Kevin Systrom says that the app is so broken that users will spend hours in search of a fix and even pay for an upgrade if they can’t find it on their own.
The problem stems from Instagram’s lack of support for plugins, a feature Systrom is now pushing for the company to address in the next update.
Systrom said that he believes Instagram’s developers have missed a chance to integrate plugins, but he wants the app to get there.
He said that developers can use the plugin support to provide a simple API that allows users to create custom extensions for Instagram.
Instagram developers will also be able to add plugins to Instagram’s main app for free.
As an added bonus, Systrom said, the plugin integration will enable users to “see what’s in the feed,” and that the feed will show up on your phone, desktop, and iPad as an image or video.
There’s also a chance that users may not be able add plugins because Instagram will only let users sign in if they’re signed into a Facebook account.
“When we look at this, we don’t want to be in a situation where we have an Instagram that’s only for people that have a Facebook and a Twitter account,” Systrom told TechCrunch.
However, Symson says that this is “not a deal-breaker.”
“We’re not looking at it as a problem for Facebook or Twitter.
It’s really about adding the best possible experience for our users,” he said.
