You heard correctly! Popular photo sharing app, Instagram is finally coming to the Windows Phone platform in the coming weeks. Instagram CEO, Kevin Systrom, has confirmed today at a Nokia event that an official Instagram client is on the way. Systrom said “We’re looking forward to watching the Windows Phone community use Instagram to capture and share beautiful moments in the coming weeks.” This is a fantastic addition to the Windows Phone ecosystem with a big name app finally making an official client.
As we know, there has been a very popular 3rd party client, 6tag which has been praised by many users. The app has been continually downloaded by Windows Phone users and is heavily liked across the board. Of course, while it’s fantastic news that an official client is on the way, 3rd party clients often have more features or user requested features such as the new collage option in 6tag which isn’t present in the official Instagram apps.
