Instagram arrives on Windows Phone today


It’s been a long time coming, has spawned dozens of copycats, and now it’s finally almost here: Instagram for Windows Phone. Last month, when Nokia revealed its new hardware at the company’s Nokia World event, it also shared with the Windows Phone community that official ports of both Vine and Instagram were nearly ready to launch. In the weeks since, we’ve seen Vine surface for the platform, but that was over a week ago by now; where’s Instagram? Today we get our answer, with news that the app is hitting the Windows Phone Store later today.

Instagram shares the news on its blog, and while there’s no download link just yet, we’ve heard to expect it to become available at 2PM Eastern, so we really are into the home stretch here. When it’s finally ready to download, we’re hoping to bring you a hands-on look at what all this waiting ultimately got us.

While the release should be perfectly functional, Instagram is clear that it’s still got big plans for Windows Phone from here, and intends keep working on the app to add new features and further improve the user experience.

We got Vine. We got Instagram. What do you think is the next popular app Windows Phone users deserve to see ported their way?

Update: The download is now available.
