Nokia launches #2InstaWithLove app in effort to bring Instagram to Windows Phone
Is Instagram ever coming to Windows Phone? The sad truth is that nobody knows for sure. What we do know, however, is that many a WP user wish the popular photo editing and sharing app was available on their platform of choice. And someone has to do something about it.

That someone, apparently, would be Nokia itself. The company just released a new Windows Phone application called "#2InstaWithLove", the purpose of which is to grab the attention of Instagram developers. Simply put, the app adds an Instagram-like filter on a photo one shares through it on a social network and adds the aforementioned hashtag to the post. The application can be applied as a Nokia Lens or used on its own. 

Assuming enough momentum is built through #2InstaWithLove, the guys at Instagram might finally respond to the plea of those Windows Phone users and launch a client for Microsoft's OS as well. And who knows, they might be actually working on it already, although that information is far from confirmed at this time. You can take a look at Nokia's #2InstaWithLove app right here.

Pixlr Express is way better than Instagram. I would really like to see Pixlr Express on WP and Symbian :D

lol yea, i think WP should be given to Nokia, since Nokia is doing all the hard work to push the WP OS, while Microsoft as SleepingOz said is busy with other things, more than it's own mobile OS there's a quote in arabic that says, "the one who have a house made of glass, shouldn't throw stones on people" i don't know what it means in english, but i think u'll understand what i mean lol and Microsoft is that one, they must stop what their doing, and focus on their things first

This is why my next phone will be a Nokia or a google built phone. There's support in so many ways.

I somehow feel that this is just a marketing hype done by Nokia to make Lumia/WP owners excited and at the same time, share. In my opinion, an Instagram app for Lumia phones are probably in the works/completed. All that's left is the build-up. If that is true, this is a great PR stunt by both Nokia and Instagram. If the app shows up soon, Nokia will look like they have succeeded in giving what some Lumia users have wanted all this time and this will also reflect well on Instagram. Just my two cents.
