Features of Instagram
An easy to use application, Instagram allows you to capture and share the world’s moments. The app helps you to edit and add special effects to your click making them further more captivating and interesting. More like a social media, Instagram also helps you in sharing these photographs on your instagram page as well as other social medias like facebook, twitter, tumblr, etc. Along with photos, the app also helps you to edit and share your personal videos. With instagram you get features like:

Soon after the android and iPhone users received the good news of BBM availability for Android and iOS, Windows Phone users would now be blessed with Instagram app. It definitely seems to be a smarter step by Microsoft and Nokia to push up their market share in the right direction. Otherwise what would have been the use of their newly launched 41 megapixel Nokia Lumia 1020.
