Apart from unveiling a bunch of new devices at Nokia World, the Finnish manufacturer also announced something many Windows Phone users have been waiting for: an official Instagram app is going to hit the Windows Store “in the coming few weeks”.

It’s been the biggest app missing on Windows Phone. There are alternatives like Fhotoroom and Itsdagram, but users would be heartened to know that the real thing will be on the platform soon.

“We’re looking forward to watching the Windows Phone community use Instagram to capture and share beautiful moments,” said Instagram CEO and co-founder Kevin Systrom. We recently wrote about Systrom’s incredible journey to making $1 billion in two years.


Apart from that, several new apps are either making their way to Windows Store soon or are already there. Here are some of the major ones.
