Instagram competitor Molome teased by founder. Coming soon to Windows Phone?
There is an alternate universe out there where you’ve just uploaded a photo to Instagram from your Lumia 920 or HTC 8X – it was probably a picture of your brunch with a grungy filter, but that isn’t the case is it? Someday Instagram will come, but we might not really care if Molome beats them to the punch.
We first mentioned Molome on Windows Phone Central back in September. It’s similar to Instagram – in that it is a photo sharing app and social network, a point a lot of people seem to miss when they dismiss Instagram. But Molome also seems to bring some features to the table that are unique and fun, like badges and photo of the day. If you’re a Foursquare you’re probably very familiar with how badges work, basically little trophies/achievements that you unlocked for doing different things within the app. That gamification can help differentiate Molome from other photo sharing social sites.
So Molome is currently available to users on Symbian, Android, BlackBerry and MeeGo, but Windows Phone will be joining that list shortly. At least we’re fairly positive. We’ve got an image that leads us to believe the app is nearly completion. The founder of Molome, Sittiphol Phanvilai, recently shared a picture to this platform showing a teaser of what looks like a Windows Phone version of Molome. The giveaway being the Windows Phone panaroma view and the fact that he just had a meeting with Nokia CEO Stephen Elop.
We’ve reached out to Sittiphol Phanvilai and will update you guys if we learn anything else about the status and plans for Molome on Windows Phone.
