It was teased over the weekend, and now the new and long promised Universal Instagram app for Windows 10 is available to download from the store.
The description reads:
Instagram is a simple way to capture and share the world’s moments. Transform your everyday photos and videos into works of art and share them with your family and friends. See the world through somebody else’s eyes by following not only the people you know, but inspirational Instagrammers, photographers, athletes, celebrities and fashion icons. Every time you open Instagram, you’ll see new photos and videos from your closest friends, plus breathtaking moments shared by creative people across the globe.
The app features:
- Edit photos and videos with free, custom-designed filters.
- Improve photos with 10 advanced creative tools to change brightness, contrast and saturation as well as shadows, highlights and perspective.
- Find people to follow based on the accounts and photos you already love.
- Connect with Instagrammers all over the world and keep up with their photos and videos.
- Send private photo and video messages directly to friends.
The app is believed to be a direct port from the iOS app using Facebook’s own native cross-platform tools, and is therefore pretty fully featured. Here are some screenshots:
The app is however pretty new still and has these known issues:
- Facebook login
- “Share to” functionality
- Crashes/stability in creation workflow
It does however have some interesting features, such as the 3D Touch menu from the iOS app, activated by long press on Windows Phone.
The app does not seem to be available for Windows 10 PCs yet. Find it for phones in the Windows Store here.
