The Windows Phone community finally has an Instagram application to call its own, as the Facebook-owned photo-sharing network announced in a post on the Instagram blog that Instagram for Windows Phone was introduced Wednesday and will be available for download via the Windows Phone Store.
Instagram said in the blog post:
When we launched Instagram for Android in March 2012, the community was 30 million strong and growing fast. The Instagram community is now more than 150 million people and reaches every corner of the globe.
In that past year, however, Instagram isn’t all that’s grown. We’ve also seen the rise of a new mobile platform, as tens of millions of people around the world have taken to Windows Phones. Our mission is to give everyone the ability to capture and share the moments around them, so our team has been working hard to bring Instagram to Windows Phone users everywhere.
We wanted to make Instagram available to people with Windows Phones as quickly as possible, so we focused on creating an awesome experience with Instagram’s core features. We’re not finished, and our team will continue developing the Windows Phone app to keep releasing features and bringing you the best Instagram possible.
