Instagram Is Finally On Windows Phone!

Instagram officially lands on Windows Phone devices later today along with another popular app already on Android and iPhone called Waze. (Waze is a mapping application that's now owned by Google). It'll be available in the Windows Phone app store later this afternoon.

The Instagram app available through the Windows Phone Marketplace claims to be a beta of the app so it is likely that the Facebook-owned photo-sharing platform will issue updates to the app soon.

"While our global market share is around 4%, it's still the fastest growing," said Todd Brix, the general manager of the Windows app store.

Nokia, the biggest maker of Windows Phones, continues to report increasing shipments of its Windows Phones quarter over quarter. Microsoft's next challenge isn't necessarily to get the current library of hot apps on Windows Phone, it's to make sure developers think of making stuff for Windows Phone.
