So as many people know, I carry a Windows Phone among the many mobile devices I carry. Its an HTC 8X, and before that I had a Samsung Focus. I like the phone, works good for many things, but one of its drawbacks is its apps selection. One of the last major missing applications is Instagram. I use Instagram daily. I was surprised a couple of weeks back when my CIO posted a picture to Instagram of a tall ship. He carries a Samsung ATIV so I was wondering how he did that (cause he loves the phone and couldn’t see him carrying an android or iPhone) and he told me he used an application called Instance. Off to the Windows Phone Store I went looking for the application.
Instance is a Windows Phone 8 application that will connect to Instagram and allow you to post pictures. There are plenty of apps that will let you browse Instagram but this was the first I saw that allowed you to post pictures. It hasn’t been updated for allow for video yet, but I am sure that will come. It has pretty decent UI and you can scroll through pictures, double tap to like. I posted a picture of my son using it and it looks great. I don’t know if we’ll ever see an official application from Facebook for Instagram on Windows Phone but this is a pretty decent replacement.
Here is the link to the app in the Windows Phone Store
