We recently reported that the developers behind the popular YouTube apps for Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8, PrimeTube, had a new one in the works titled InstaPic. The app was to be the very first, native Instagram client for Windows 8 devices, allowing you to see all of your images, activity, share images and more importantly, post directly through the app from your photo library or device camera.
We’re happy to report that InstaPic is now live in the Store and ready to be downloaded to your Surface or Windows 8 machine. You can see in our video tour that a native app, as opposed to an inferior “web wrapper” app, provides a fast and fluid experience. Indeed the app is quite fun to use and for being a 1.0 release, it’s quite stable (we did occasionally have a loading issue here and there, but trivial).
Now of course many of you should know that Instagram has been monkeying with their posting-API this week, causing havoc with third party apps. InstaPic is no different, although we were able to successfully log into our account without a problem. Instagram of course could change their API again (or rather, reinstate it), which will once again cause posting issues. Fear not as the developers behind InstaPic have a fix on the way, which should ameliorate any potential future problems.
Regardless, the app is free and a joy to use if you’re an Instagram fan, so we recommend you give it a spin.
Head here to the Windows 8 Store to pick up InstaPic.
And if you do like this app, we’re happy to tease you with the knowledge that a Windows Phone 8 version is also in the works. More on that next week!
