Hey everyone.
I am working on releasing a simple mobile app that pulls a feed of the Instagram photos being taking around your current location. Its almost ready for BETA but I keep getting inconsistent responses from Instagram's APIs. When the API responds it works great but every once in a while it gets stuck where it responds over and over again with the following:

Array ( [meta] => Array ( [error_type] => APIError [code] => 400 [error_message] => Media search error. Please try again shortly ) )

Here are some links that might be useful:

A link to the Android app on google play:

Any Ideas?
