In what can only be described as example of extreme out of the box thinking, Nokia’s gone ahead and released a #2InstaWithLove app. The app adds a filter and turns your photo into a Polaroid with the hashtag #2InstaWithLove imprinted, this photo can then be shared on social networks. Instagram has for long been one of the most demanded apps for Windows Phone, and one would have expected Microsoft and Nokia to have engaged the Facebook owned company behind the scenes to get them to do a Windows Phone app, but things seem to have moved into the public domain now.
The App’s description states:
Many of you have asked when Instagram will be coming to Windows Phone, and the #2InstaWithLove app was created as a way for you to have your voice heard.
The app allows you to take a photo using the classic polaroid filter and automatically adds the hashtag #2InstaWithLove. It’s all about showing Instagram just how passionate the Windows Phone community is – so be creative, have fun and be sure to share your favorite photos with us using a social network of your choice.
Nokia really wants users to put the pressure on Instagram. Does this mean that back room negotiations have failed to yield any result? Or this is a clever lead up to the release of Instagram for Windows Phone? Even if this is a hail merry to get Instagram to Windows Phone, you can’t fault Nokia for not trying.
While you can see the app on the Windows Phone Store, it doesn’t seem to let us download the app yet. At least I had no luck on my Lumia 920. There is even a 2instawithlove.com website that’s hosting content from users. It isn’t accessible directly, but works if you like a link to a photo – such as this.
