How to get Instagram on Windows Phone – 6tag App Review

Instagram, is one of the most popular social networks around, but the app itself is only available on iOS and Android. 6tag, is an unofficial client for Windows Phone that allows you to do everything you can do in the official apps.

The app itself is quite quick. It loads pictures easily and video playback is supported and works well. The photos are laid out in a card interface that allows you to flip each card to like, comment, share and save the picture. Commenting and liking photos takes longer than on official apps, but that is expected as this is an unofficial app.

One of the big features of the app is that you can actually upload photos and videos to Instagram. You can record videos and take photos in the same way as iOS and Android as well as choosing an image from your albums.

Instagram’s features aren’t missing either. You can add a filter to a photo, rotate it, add a border, add a tilt-shift or even lux. You can share the photo on all of the major social networks and the photo or video shows up on your Instagram account so you can view it on the web, or the official iOS and Android apps.

If you want to access Instagram on your Windows Phone, then download 6tag. It’s unofficial, but works as it should and is simple to use. The app does take some time to load some features but the app isn’t from Instagram, so I can overlook that.
Update: It’s a free download from the Windows Store but it is ad supported and you can only upload 2 videos until you buy an upgrade.

    Good post, no mention about the app being ad-supported or payment needed for more than two video uploads. Just thought it might need to be mentioned! 🙂

    • Kind of a shame really, I’ll ask Purav to add it in 🙂

    Pretty cool app, Instagram is a must especially for that Lumia phone with the crazy camera. Nice

    • Yeah the camera is lovely and Instagram doesn’t degrade the quality at all!

    This is a great app! Instagram still needs to bring the app to the Lumia though. Hopefully it won’t take that long. The camera on the Lumia is great so I don’t know what is taking them so long! 😛 Anyway, good detailed article Purav. Keep them up! 🙂
