    Like what really do we have to do to get Instagram app to MSW. I didn't think of this before I sent my Android back. I did my research but I just automatically assumed (like the first three letters) that of course Instagram is an offered app in their Marketplace. But it is not. Sucks as$ totally. I love the phone but if the majority of my friends are on a social networking site using both Android and Apple so they are on Instagram, now I have to just say ... nah I can't use Instagram on my phone yet ... they laugh at me. You have at super smart phone and Instagram isn't offered!? I've very tech savvy so that also is another reason I like the phone but I'm really thinking hard about all the apps I'm losing out of without Droid. Anyway I have been searching here and low for some sort of starting or possible date or at least word from Windows or Instagram but nothing.....hopefully soon someone will think it is worth it. :mad:

    Straight from Joe Belfiore...
    @peltidelphia @salem_albargi No instagram yet, sadly. Send FB message to Zuck and Systrom and tell them you want it! yes to Yelp though.

    Thanks. I voted. Hopefully it works. It seems folks have been waiting for a long time. I'm so tempted to just give up and go back to my Galaxy. I gave up on a nice phone to try something new that doesn't have one of the main apps I used socally that is. Sucks but thanks a lot.

    If a lack of Instagram and other apps is causing your friends to laugh at you, you should probably go back to Android. No phone is worth that.

    Instagram is overrated and lately it's a spam box. When I was on IP5 and used it all I got were likes and replies from people trying to sell me more followers or sell me a product and IG does nothing about it. Great idea, worst app ever.

    Setting up a private account would solve any future spam issues. Blocking current spammers would solve current spam problems. Great social site, great app on Android and iOS.

    You should try MetroAM. It allows you to log in into your instagram account, comment on photos, like photos, and follow/unfollow people. You can't upload your own photos, but that's due to instagram rules. It's a nice app.

    Private accounts defeat the purpose. You said it's a great social site, hard to be social when no one can see your photos and your hashtags go into a black hole.

    Yes only so people will shut up about it being missing. Otherwise, I could care less.

    I have many followers. But only allow people I choose. Same with twitter. Social doesn't mean let the flood gates open. If I go to a bar, I don't yuck it up with everyone in the bar, just those I choose.

    Wait so you can do everything you can do on Instagram but upload pictures ?I returned my lumia 920 for couple of (minor) reasons but not having Instagram what made my decision easier to return it...But if metroam does the same thing as Instagram but upload pics (which I have an iPad and gs2 to upload from) then I'm gonna look for a used lumia 920 on eBay or Craigslist ...

    Yep. There's another app that does the same thing too. But I like MetroAM better. It's a very nice app. http://windowsphone.com/s?appid=fabd...5-1d254937e8ea

    Nice! I didn't come across this app when I had the lumia, I only came across one that let's you see what's popular on Instagram and bunch of filters apps... Thank you very much for the heads up.. The hunt for a lumia 920 begins now haha

    Or just get new friends...

    So many instagram posts recently. Reminds me of when my Facebook friends insisted on using SocialCam to share videos (just use YouTube people). I bet my GF (new to Windows Phone) is raging about the lack of this app as well. I asked her why she felt the need to use Instagram instead of just using FB. The only reason she could give is "It lets me edit the photos to make them look cool". Yes, they look very cool indeed... Those Sephia tones are brilliant.

    That is honestly a problematic mentality in the world. Instagram refuses to play ball with Windows Phone, so you leave Windows Phone to cater to Instagram? What kind of crazy message is being sent when you tell companies "abuse me, because I'll follow you anyway?" It's how you get a 2011 iPhone without 2010 LTE and a 2012 iPhone without an HD screen (no iPhone's ever had one) or 2010 NFC.

    People REALLY need to learn to speak with their wallets. Stick with Windows Phone, and then complain to Instagram (which I guess means Facebook now). If they see their usage rate drop because people are on Windows Phone and not accessing it on iOS or Android, they'll cater to the customers. It's crazy how often the customers, who have ALL of the power, refuse to exercise it, instead preferring to be treated so poorly.

    Yeah, that kind of stuff is weird. I mean, you can edit pictures with Windows Phone apps now, no? It's like we have Facebook, then we have a site for status updates from Facebook (Twitter), then we have a site for picture sharing on Facebook (Instagram). Oh, and don't forget the location-based tagging on Facebook, which we get with ANOTHER site (LinkedIn, from what I hear it is for). I would understand the use of these sites if people bailed on Facebook for selling personal information, but when you're STILL on a site to handle all of these tasks, why are you a registered user on 3 other sites to duplicate that functionality?

    I'm making some cynical posts, but I really don't understand.

    But then how will we share all our awesome photos? You expect us to use Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, email, a website? Please! That is sooo 2011!

    I don't see how not having a WP app will effect their usage rate.

    LinkedIn is professional networking NOT location-based tagging.
    Foursquare is what you mean?

    Please make instagram and snapchat on Lumia 920! I got a twin brother, he got the iphone 5, i like my phone better...
    ACCEPT THE LACK OF GOOD AND POPULAR APPS.
    So please get more social networks (like snapchat and
    instagram) and other popular apps on the WP8

    I hope Twitter over runs Instagram I really do. Instagream should open their API allow clients to upload problem fixed.

    Keith Wallace is right.

    As more people get WP8 the less people will use Instagram. The growth of WP8 will lower Instagram's user rate; we all want wp8 to succeed.
    Anyways wp8 needs instagram to succeed; which is sad because there are many other options. What is more sad, to me at least, is the addiction to social sites like instagram to the point of giving up an item they like. This all means that you let a company control you.

    Flood Facebook's/Instagram's support email box, or at least create new thread here and demand people to do it.
