Instagram lands on Windows Phone

Instagram started out as an iOS app, then migrated to Android. Now, it has a home on the Windows Phone.

The company announced Wednesday that there is now an app for Windows Phone 8 users.

Instagram blogged about the new app:

When we launched Instagram for Android in March of 2012, the community was 30 million strong and growing fast. The Instagram community is now more than 150 million people and reaches every corner of the globe.

In that past year, however, Instagram isn’t all that’s grown. We’ve also seen the rise of a new mobile platform as tens of millions of people around the world have taken to Windows Phones. Our mission is to give everyone the ability to capture and share the moments around them, so our team has been working hard to bring Instagram to Windows Phone users everywhere.

We wanted to make Instagram available to people with Windows Phones as quickly as possible, so we focused on creating an awesome experience with Instagram’s core features. We’re not finished, and our team will continue developing the Windows Phone app to keep releasing features and bringing you the best Instagram possible.

Instagram is a place where people come to be inspired and connect with others, and we’re thrilled to welcome Windows Phone users to the community. We can’t wait to see what you’ll create.

Wondering how Instagram is already performing? AppData has figures for iOS and Android, showing the app’s success. Instagram is the No. 3-rated free Android app and the No. 13 free iPhone app.
