    They never released a date but it was supposed to be before the end of the year.

    When it's done

    I tweeted Joe Belfiore about it, and he replied that we need to get on the devs to let them know we want it. If we want our favorite apps on our (new) favorite phone, we need to look beyond the forums.

    In the meantime, check out lomogram. It's a holdover from wp7, but it has the same types of filters and effects that instagram does, but with more flexibility. It's more usable than many of the android clones I used to use. pretty much snap, crop, pick a filter, pick a frame and share, including to fb, twitter, tumblr, and flickr. If you're looking for the social side of instagram, that will have to wait, but the picture taking side is already here.

    Don't believe the "soon" or "before the new year" comments, no one at Miscrosoft ever mentioned Instagram. There are apps with the same functionality indeed but Instagram is more about the social aspect than the actual filters so you can't really replace it. We have to hope facebook and Microsoft come to an agreement about it.

    The best thing to do is complain to Instagram directly with as many people as possible, hopefully they will see that the third ecosystem needs a app as well.

    People saying "oh you don't need instagram, there's some random app that no one uses but has filters too!" are missing the point. Instagram is a social network. It's like having a phone without Facebook but then saying it's fine because there's Google plus...... Personally I don't use it that much (and I have an iPad in case I do need it) but a lot of people do. Not having fundamental apps like this is really going to hurt WP....

    soon i hope. I hate having to email photos to my iPhone from my lumia 920 just to post on instagram!

    wasnt instagram saying they loved windows phone 8 because of the minimum requirements that android doesnt have or something? and the potential for greatness yada yada and so forth..

    or maybe it was a vivid dream, someone help!

    WP8 has been out for 2 weeks ........

    Apps need time to be updated and then have to go through the certification process. It's just a matter of time.

    Instagram didn't even have a 7.x app, so what is there to be 'updated'?

    But instagram was part of the 49/50 most popular apps coming to WP8

    Until I see it in writing or on the app store, I just don't believe it's coming. MS would have said "Everyone Instagram is coming to WP8!" They didn't, they did mention Pandora and a few other titles but never released a list of all the apps (at least from my searching) that said Instagram was coming.

    Every couple of days, I hop on to my Twitter account and post the following:

    @instagram @instagramapp @instagramhelp PLEASE make a @windowsphone app. Or allow posting pics from 3rd party apps. PLEASE.

    Think it would make a statement if every WP user with a Twitter account did the same thing? That same message coming from all of us? Hmm...

    Just keep hitting them up via email, Facebook and Twitter. If they don't feel like it's worth the effort they won't develop it. People need to keep speaking up.

    The Verge said they had heard about Microsoft making the app for Instagram using the APIs but that was later refuted by Instagram. And there was certainly no mention of this year. Do you really think they wouldn't have made a big deal about it when they launched the OS? Pandora gets a big slide but not Instagram? Doesn't make sense.

    If you need Instagram or Google+ then I'm afraid you've been misled. Not coming to WP. Look at the sorry state of the Facebook app, "nuff said.
