WLC Gram is a new Instagram client for Windows Phone users

0. phoneArena 28 Jul 2013, 00:28 posted on

Third party Instagram clients are a dime a dozen in the Windows Phone Store; actually, it costs more than that. The latest of the third party apps that bring Instagram functionality to Windows Phone is now available as WLC Gram is now here. The app will cost you 99 cents and there is a 9 hour free trial that you can try before you buy...

Ask Facebook since they own INstagram, not Nokia. Windows phone didnt even have an official app - the current 2 FB apps are both developed by MIcrosoft, not by Facebook, At least they are quite decent. The same thing goes for google-related apps like a native youtube app or other stuff, it's Google c0ckblocking the development of windows phone, seeing it as a potential threat, not that Microsoft and Nokia are not doing any work.

Yes, and like i said Google is partly responsible for it. Not all of them are Microsoft's fault, but Msoft should pick up the pace since Nokia is doing more than what Msoft does in the app department.

But i never use youtube on a phone (data drain - i would rather use the data to read websites, full webpages, not apps or mobile versions). Im a rather light smartphone user who treats his phone like a portable media player fpr music and web browsing instead of a phone (I make only 2 or less calls a day). Couldnt be bothered by all the missing apps that i dont even use.

Microsoft's FB app is pretty okay, but deserves more feature additions. Yes, many people care about Youtube, but not me. I was merely talking about what i need. I have long boycotted youtube, i never visited youtube voluntarily for over a year already (perhaps, already, 2 years), unless someone wants to show me something. The reason for it is long, i could type an essay.

Videos embedded on Phonearena here, i also dont click or watch them. Smartphone reviews, if i need to see some video, i head over to engadget, they host their own videos for reviews.

hmmm.. u probably just scrolled through the tiles or just did nothing ...first its called windows phone not windows mobile and 2nd calling it 2 years behind android and ios is a big troll ...(windows phone has nfc, mass storage ,bt file transfer ...and lots of other things that android has and ios doesn't have......some missing apps doesn't make it 2 years behind ), its not someone's problem that u don't know anything about wp ......and btw there's instance app for instagram which is free and a lot better than the official one on other platforms

Okay, autorotate, I'll give you.

when it comes to re-downloading games, Microsoft does that for you. I've switched through a few Windows Phones and I have to say it works 1000x better than any of my old Android phones did (all the way up through the One X.

There ARE notifications in Windows Phone, but there isn't a notification area. So, I don't know why you're saying "no notifications".

Disabling WiFi is a standard thing to do when going into power saver on just about any electronic device.

I use Bluetooth on my Windows Phone daily with no problems, so I don't know what Bluetooth issues of which you speak.

There are at least 3 other browsers, and that's just a quick search in the store.

I have downloaded songs directly from the browser, but I have to admit that I can't find a way to download videos from it. Then again, I'm not sure where you're downloading videos. If you REALLY need something, there are torrent clients you can install on your Windows Phone device.

Okay, so, again, how is it behind? I feel like you're finding random comments about WP from around the Internet, but haven't actually used one.

Also, just to clarify, I use Android on a daily as well. I have Android tablets and my gf has an android phone (that used to be mine, but she got it when I switched to WP). I have nothing against it, or any other mobile platform. I do have something against people spreading FUD in these comment sections. It's getting really annoying.

Is is pathetic how Android fanboys are attacking Windows Phone. Like little insecure kids. You can write whatever you want; still, it is a fact, that user satisfaction of Windows Phone is higher than that of Android Phones. So, go on trolling...

Why did Google give Nokiawp8 our beloved YouTube!
It's exclusive to Instagram for iOS and android not for that odd platform.
Nokia ms are begging and being going so low and cheap that self respect has died in humanity for them.

How dare Google provide YouTube...

Meh. It's a fun social network. I'm a professional photographer, but I love to post pics of my cat to Instagram, Facebook, G+, etc. That's all it comes down to.
