So I started to use Instagram for the past two weeks, and it's been fine, but the thing that gets me is not uploading photos via my PC. I have thousands of photos I'd like to upload but Instagram doesn't let you upload it because their API doesn't allow it. Why don't they? Are they trying to be exclusive to the mobile devices? All of my photos take up all of my space on my phone and Instagram would probably crash at the 1,509 photos I have.

well more devices in future are gonna be mobile, even computers with windows 8 touch pc's, they all have cameras, front facing on tablets so very nice move by fb to acquire this application, instagram is a mobile "camera" app and if they allow photo upload just like zillion other sites on web what difference it ll be for them? they ll lost identity!
