Print your Instagram photos at Walgreens with Printicular for Windows Phone

If there’s a Walgreens store nearby, you should check out the new Printicular app for Windows Phone 8. It lets you print Instagram, Facebook and camera photos with same day pick up at a Walgreens location or express delivery worldwide. If you choose pickup, the photos are ready in about an hour. No cables, no syncing. Just order prints directly from your Windows Phone. 

Head past the break to watch our hands on video and walkthrough.

When you open Printicular, it shows three sources where you can select photos to print. You can select photos from your camera, Facebook, or Instagram. You need to log in under the settings page to view photos from Facebook or Instagram. Unfortunately, the initial version is having trouble logging us in to Facebook. We hope that gets fixed in an update.

It takes a few seconds for the photos to load. When they’re all listed, tapping on a photo adds it to the cart. When you’re done selecting, clicking the checkout button displays your order info. From here, you can select the size and quantity. You can choose 4x4 ($0.39) or 8x8 ($3.99) for Instagram photos.

For a limited time, you can use the coupon code ‘MEAM’ to get 30% discount off your prints.

Before you can submit the order, Printicular asks which Walgreens you want to pick up the prints. It appears you can also pick up from Duane Reade stores. They only require your name, telephone number, and email address. No credit cards are required since payment is accepted at the store. Once you submit the order, you’ll receive an email confirmation. It includes the order number, pickup location, and operating hours.

We have placed an order for one of our Instagram photos and it was ready in about one hour. We were happy with the 8x8 print and would probably order some more in the future.

Printicular is a free download from the Windows Phone Store. It’s also available on Windows 8, Blackberry, iOS, and Android. Will you be using this photo printing service or do you use something else? Let us know in the comments!

Print your Instagram photos at Walgreens with Printicular for Windows Phone

My mistake Daniel. Than thanks printicular. Nope I am not getting involved on another debate. ;-).

See, had you read the article, you'd also know you can print photos from your Lumia's photo library or Facebook. I think 1020 owners would be interested ;) 

Yes, the Walgreens app will let you do multiple things like refill prescriptions... Plus allows you to order prints from phone, SkyDrive, Facebook and instagram. :)

He/she's got a point, dont you think? The quality of photos uploaded to Instagram sucks, and the size is limited to 612x612 pixel. Imagine how tiny the photos are when printed.

Well, maybe. I wouldn't use the Walgreens app for anything but photos, making this app more streamlined for that function.
