The app gap is closing between Windows Phone and other platforms, but there is still some work to be done. For those apps that aren’t yet available for Windows Phone we have to rely on 3rd-party developers. Lucky for us Windows Phone has some of the best devs out there, as we saw in Developer Appreciation Month.
One app that isn’t available yet is Instagram, the enormously popular photo sharing service. One app that attempts to fill the void is InstaCam.
InstaCam can do everything you would expect an Instagram app to do except one big thing: uploading photos. You can see your feed, like and comment on photos, search tags, see what’s popular, and even apply filters to existing photos. Unfortunately that’s as far as you can go, and it’s not looking like Instagram will open things up any time soon.
Other than the obvious lack of functionality this is a great app. If you have a lot of friends that use Instagram, or perhaps you use it on an iPad or Android device you can still see what’s going on with your Windows Phone. Check out my video above for a full rundown of what InstaCam has to offer.
InstaCam is free in the Marketplace.
