Comment (by xkon):

 Hey @iandunn , sorry for the late reply.

 Yes SandBox mode was added as Instagram denies 'public access' to the API
 if your application is still sandboxed and you can only retrieve your own
 accounts posts.

 At least that's what was happening as my application is actually on

 Basically for testing purposes OR if somebody wanted to just list his own
 posts he could turn on SandBox mode and retrieve his own account posts
 only. Please mind that this cancels out the #hashtag search and retrieves
 everything under the account token given.

 I will get back to it as soon as possible and re-check everything as I've
 read that the API might have changed again with Facebook and vice versa.

 Need to test everything again I suppose and see if there are changes to be

 Tell me if we want to keep the SandBox and rename it maybe to something
 more user-friendly or scrap it completely even :) .

 I'd prefer to keep it since most new API applications will be marked as
 SandBox so the users can at least set up their API tokens correctly.
