Well, sort of — it’s not an official version from Instagram, which is owned by Facebook. And you might not want to download it just yet.
A French developer has created an Instagram app called 6tag, which includes most of Instagram’s features, filters and sharing capabilities to Facebook, Twitter and so on. The free third-party app sounds like a sweet deal for Windows Phone users itching for Instagram, but according to Windows Phone developer Travis La Marr — and as posted to WithinWindows.com and spotted by The Verge — some major privacy concerns exist within the app. (Not to mention the chance that Facebook could pull integration at anytime.)
6tag has not yet responded to a request for comment.
6tag isn’t the only Instagram client for Windows Phone. Another app, dubbed Instance is also available for Windows Phone devices. It allows users to upload photos to Instagram and has a collection of filters. It also supports pinning users and hashtags to the Windows home screen. In our experience, Instance has remained a fairly stable app on a variety of Windows Phone devices.
Although Microsoft has reportedly already created an Instagram app for Windows Phone, it’s unknown when — or if — it will officially be approved by Facebook.
