Instagram may already be available for iOS and Android, but Windows Phone users have so far been left out on having a similar opportunity to ruin stylistically enhance their photos. We’ve heard rumors about a Windows Phone version for some time now, and now it looks like Nokia’s really trying to turn up the heat, creating a #2InstaWithLove app as some sort of campaign to encourage the development of a native Windows Phone Instagram port.
The discovery of this app follows rumors that Nokia could already be planning on bringing Instagram to Lumia users itself, and while this now makes it look like those claims could be off, it does seem clear that Nokia’s got some serious interest in seeing an official Instagram app released for Windows Phone. Certainly, as the OEM with some of the best cameras around, and rumors looking to a 41-megapixel PureView Lumia, Nokia has a vested interest in encouraging Windows Phone photography.
The app is designed to let users create Polaroid-style pictures and share them with the #2InstaWithLove hashtag, supposedly demonstrating to Instagram just how creative Windows Phone users are, and how deserving they might be of their own Instagram app. All told, it’s a bit odd, but we suppose a little publicity couldn’t hurt Instagram’s chances of coming to the platform.
