Tell people that you’ve got a Windows Phone and, if they’re of the right kind of bent, they’ll wince and say something along the lines of “ooh you can’t get Instagram on that can you?” No, you can’t and it’s seriously annoying.
So annoying in fact that Nokia has been moved to create a campaign with a companion app, in a bid to get Instagram to build an app for the platform.
Called #2Instawithlove, the campaign urges Windows Phone users to download the app of the same name, which comes with a selection of Polaroid photos. The idea is that the photos taken using the app will be spread across social networks, showing Instagram just how passionate Windows Phone users are about getting the service on their devices.
According to the app’s description on the Windows Phone store:
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.
Unfortunately, the app is only available on Nokia devices at the moment.
