One of the main questions people often ask me when I talk (fondly) about Nokia Lumia devices, or Windows Phone devices is about the availability of apps on them. Instagram was one such app, which has made its fans wait for a few months (feels like years, doesn’t it!) for it.
However, WP users need wait no more. The app is finally available, and it is free to download. Head to the following link if you’d like to add it to your list of apps:
The biggest feature that the Instagram app features is obviously the fact that you can apply numerous filters on your images, making them look anything from vintage to retro!
Simply select a picture from your Photos hub, choose a filter to change its look and feel, and then you can post it instantly to Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Foursquare and Instagram itself.
The app comes with a variety of free, custom filters designed to make it easy to put the ‘art’ into ‘smartphone’. Enjoy experimenting with XPro-II, Earlybird, Rise, Amaro, Hudson, Lo-fi, Sutro, Toaster, Brannan, Inkwell, Walden, Hefe, Nashville, 1977, and others. There are other treatments and effects you can apply, too, such as Linear and Radial Tilt-shift blur, allowing you to add extra depth of field to your pictures.
The app can also be used to view your friends’ images as well.
