Instagram is one of the most famous picture sharing service around the world. People all over the world uses this service on either Android or iOs operating system. But Instagram is not supported by Windows phone yet. I found out about this when i got myself, a windows phone 8 for my business. Don’t get me wrong, i still have Samsung Note for my personal use. Anyway, i don’t know why windows phone is still missing this wonderful app. Therefore i looked around and search for some apps that are alternates to Instagram.
If you are using Windows Phone 8, you can try one of these alternatives (Note: Instagram for windows phone is coming soon but there is no details on release date available)

EyeEm is a real time photo search engine, that means you can simply snap a shot and discover albums of topics, places and events.
InstaCam is a photo and social sharing app that lets you take pictures and apply filters. Connecting to Instagram’s service, you are able to access your account.

This app’s interface follows the theme set by Windows Phone 7 and scrolls through menus by swiping the screen. It is easy to use and pictures from your gallery or new pictures can be used.

There are quite a lot of them. This is a must try for windows phone users.
