Posted by Arne Hess - at 10:49 CET under 02 - Windows Mobile News

When Nokia announced its new Windows Phone camera-hero, the Nokia Lumia 1020, Nokia also announced that support for Instagram will hit Windows Phones soon and now it's available. Not from Instagram - or better Facebook - itself but from Hipstamatic which just released Hipstamatic Oggl: "A Community For Creative People To Capture & Curate Their Lives Through Photography". Oggl is described to be a "capture-first" shooting experience using Hipstamatic's beautiful lenses and films, which comes with 5 "Favorites" pre-loaded for situational shooting: Landscape, Food, Portrait, Nightlife and Sunset. Oggl edited photos can be either shared via Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, but also shared to the Oggl profile to curate the users personal story. While Oggl is available free of charge, it will come with the 5 predefined filters - called lenses only.

I already wrote last week about the expected release of InstaWeatherPro for Windows Phone and as it turned out now, the app is already available on Microsoft's Windows Phone Marketplace. InstaWeather, which was initially launched for iOS only but which got Android support earlier this year too, is one of these famous and successful photo apps which allows users to overlay photos with current weather information; giving users the possibility to add weather reports and forecasts. Overlaid photos can be then shared through Facebook, E-Mail, WhatApp or whatever allows to share images - pretty popular is sharing through Instagram which is still not available for Windows Phone.
