We knew it was coming, but today is the day that Instagram has finally landed on Windows Phone. The app, which applies filters to photos and allows you to easily share them with your social network, has been heavily requested and rumored for some time. Seeing that the app has been released, it should appease those who are on Windows Phone and have wanted a native application and quiet the critics who claim the Windows Store was incomplete because it was missing this key app.

Sure, you could have used one of the third party alternatives to use Instagram but having an official app, makes the Windows Store seem a bit more mature. Of course, now that there is an official Instagram app, we expect the tens of dozens of people who claimed that they only reason they weren’t using Windows Phone was because of Instagram was missing, to switch.

For Instagram fans, it can be downloaded from here.

For what it is worth, the unofficial 3rd party app 6tag is still better than any official/unofficial Instagram app on WP/iOS/Android.
