6tag for Windows Phone is the closest thing to having Instagram on Windows Phone 8
A new third party Instagram client has appeared in the Windows Phone Store that offers Windows Phone 8 users a complete Instagram experience, including video uploads. 6tag, formerly known as 6tagram, is the first 100% API compliant Instagram app for Windows Phone 8 devices. Other third party apps had to either specialize in uploading pictures, while others could only view Instagram member's sites. Then when Instagram added video to the mix, it created another wave of limited third party apps.
6tag, which will eventually be available for Windows Phone 7.x models, offers original filters like XPro-II, Earlybird, Rise, Amaro, Hudson, Lo-fi, Sutro, Toaster, Brannan, Inkwell, Walden, Hefe, Nashville, 1977, and more. You can record video and cut scenes with unlimited picture uploads and sharing to social sites like Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr and Foursquare. Yes, you can hand out "Likes" and make comments while geotagging your posts. You can even use the back and front camera on your phone. 6tag has just added NFC sharing which allows users of the app to share Instagram pictures to Windows Phone or Android users via NFC.
6tag is free to download although it will take a $1.29 in-app purchase to eliminate ads while an in-app purchase of $1.49 lets you upload video. Everyone gets one free video upload to test out the app. You can find the app in the Windows Phone Store.

It works like a charm! I love it! It's way better than Instance!

Agree! I stopped using Instance because there were too many upload issues.

What are the advantages of using instagram instead of Facebook or twitter? I tried instagram back when I tried an android, and found it redundant, especially since I didn't know anyone that used (or uses) it that doesn't upload the same photos to Facebook or twitter.

This app is really good, and we are getting NFC capabilities also inside this app :)

Hmmmm, at last I see a reasonable comment on this instagram-wp8 madness. Some people are just social freaks. You are on Facebook, twitter, Google+, friendster, badoo, twoo, intagram, picasa, and is still waiting for the next big thing. I wonder if such people actually have a life, the real one.

If you sit around wondering, and pondering, about why other people like certain things, or choose to do certain things,, then maybe you should question yourself about whether you have a life or not..

I feel.the same way. I found instagram redundant (twitter for illiterates who like crummy filters), and the only reason I use twitter is for giveaways and contests. I didn't use MySpace back when because I have Facebook, and nearly I i know is on Facebook.

The new app is great. So far so good it has not closed me out in under 10 minutes of using it. Instance keeps closing me out.

Seems like developers are spending more time constructing a like app instead of making the real app. Also seems like WP users are trying to convince themselves that they don't need this app by having a knockoff. Quit kidding yourselves folks and stop settling for less.

its aint a knock off coz it got full time instagram features. and even got the certified instagram filters. instagram aided the developer to make 6tag - while instagram is also not promoting it

WP should just come up with an Android Apps Player ala Blackberry and just run everything from Google Play.
