One of the biggest complants about Windows Phone will soon be put to rest as Instagram has confirmed that it will soon release an app for the third-place operating system. Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom confirmed the news today in a statement related to Nokia's recent push for new apps on Windows Phone. Systrom said:
"Our ultimate goal is to bring Instagram to everyone who wants to use it. We're looking forward to watching the Windows Phone community use Instagram to capture and share beautiful moments in the coming weeks."
Windows Phone users have long been in an unfortunate paradox of having smartphones built for enhanced mobile photography but unable to share those images on the most popular mobile app for photography. Users have until now relied on third-party alternatives that were buggy or limited the experience unless someone paid for a premium version. The 6tag app is the closest that someone has come to deliver a respectable Instagram experience. Soon, Windows Phone owners will be able to post and view photos straight from the source.
