I've always been a big fan of Instagram because of the filters. Most people that got into Instagram use it for that reason. It got popular on iPhone because of how it made your photos look. I don't know anyone who uses Instagram just because someone liked an image. I DO know quite a few people who STARTED using it for that reason though, but use it regularly for the filters. I am one of those people.

Having used instagram on android, i'd say fhotoroom has way more functionality, but I end up throwing my pics in photoshop anyway before they go on instagram, plus I dont know anyone using rambling, but I hope they bring it to WP soon.

Microsoft owns 1.6% of Facebook

Although, it's not a huge percent. It is still a significant dollar value. Microsoft's share was valued at 1.36 Billion dollars when that website was last updated.

Not sure if that comes with any benefits from Facebook or companies that Facebook owns.

Well Fhotoroom on WP7 offers the same thing, but is not as popular as Instagram. I only care about the "quick photo edit" with filters and just upload it from pictures hub so it would show "uploaded via windows phone" on facebook, not instagram.

I think that Instagram is one of the most overrated apps ever, just because i "fashion".

So we have a lot of similar apps in the marketplace, wich do the same exact work and in most cases they do better.

One for all? Thumba photo editor.

Ok it hasn't god a dedicated social network, but as 90% of Instagram users just upload their pictures on facebook/twitter the problem doesn't exist.

If you're still concerned, try this:

Default The big problem... a closed api

We have already a lot of apps on Windows Phone with differents Vintage filters... but the popularity of Instagram is the social network around it. But, the objective behind Instagram is keep the popularity of they app over differents platforms, so, an open api? I don't think so.

i dont understand why the big companies do not support windows phone, although we have really good apps with filters and fx, i expect to be able to participate with other platforms on the social networks. I want to stay with windows phone because its unique. Microsoft is disappointing the users now, wp7 is going down slowly and is not seen as a serious competition anymore, so so sad ((

Calm down my friend, more and more apps are due to be released over summer and with the advent of Apollo there will be much hype and renewed interest in the platform. Maybe Microsoft could do more to entice the top 20 apps from Android/iOS over, there have been leaked Nokia slides recently that have shown there is an intention to do this.

ok i really hope they will do a huge step forward in apps, because they did all good in user interface etc. They shouldnt let us wait after the apollo update and bring all exclusive apps to the OS!
