My only argument is that people download instagram because their friend /friends "liked" it on facebook. I can't recall anyone making a fuss about filters in the past.
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 fhotoroom..im rambling, but I hope they bring it to WP soon.

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.
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.
Let’s face it. Not all of us own cars featuring fancy, … more
