Windows Phone 8 has some of the best camera hardware available in mobile phones but its app market is lacking many of the most popular camera applications. Most notably absent from the Windows Store is Instagram.
Several months after Windows Phone 8 was released to developers, Instagram has still not released its app for Microsoft's mobile operating system. Nokia, the manufacturer of notable Windows Phone 8 devices like the Lumia 920, has decided to take things into its own hands by releasing an app where users can upload photos. The app, called #2InstaWithLove, automatically adds a sepia filter and Polaroid border, labeling the frame with the app's hashtag title.
Nokia asks users to send a belated Insta-Valentine:
Many of you have asked when Instagram will be coming to Windows Phone, and the #2InstaWithLove app was created as a way for you to have your voice heard.
The app allows you to take a photo using the classic polaroid filter and automatically adds the hashtag #2InstaWithLove. It's all about showing Instagram just how passionate the Windows Phone community is - so be creative, have fun and be sure to share your favorite photos with us using a social network of your choice.
The #2InstaWithLove app is free and allows users to share their image on Facebook, Twitter, and various email services. When saving an image, the app makes sure that the user understands that their photo "may be published in Nokia's online collection."
Windows Phone 8 users, would you use Instagram if it was available?
