Instagram app for Windows Phone

Instance for Windows Phone has always been miserable, but thankfully an independent developer Daniel Gary has come up with a full featured Instagram for Windows Phone app – Instance. This app would probably serve better than an official Instagram app which unfortunately lacks a few key features. Although, there are many free Instagram alternatives  available for Windows Phone.

It is not an official app, but it does it all including upload photos, share photos, apply filter effects to your photos, see other popular photos, view your dashboard, get notifications, comment and like the photos. In short, you can do everything with Instance, which you can do using Instagram. It is very simple, and productive app and the best part is that it doesn’t include delays when uploading photos.

Features of Instance

  • Easy to use– This is what made Instagram so popular and with a very simple user-interface Instance is also very easy to use. You can just click a picture, add some effects and share it with all your friends on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. You can do all directly without even switching to the gallery.
  • Presentation- This about Windows Phone app supports Grid view as well as Timeline presentation. You just need to sign in, and you can browse your timeline, like and comment on the pictures posted by other users. Furthermore, you can also pin your favorite hashtags with this app. The live tile presentation of Instance is very basic presently, but is expected to be better in the future.
  • Free/Paid– The app is promoted as Instance Free, but it actually costs around $1.49 (80 INR). However, you can go for the free trial offer with a limit of 1 image upload. You can use all other features except uploading in the free trial offer of Instance.
  • Notification– Instance supports notification. You will get a notification on the upper-right corner of your screen when someone follows you or comments any of your photos.
