InPic for Windows Phone 8

Instagram client InstaPic now available for free on Windows Phone 8 as InPic

A few weeks ago we mentioned that InstaPic, a fully featured Instagram client, had been released for Windows 8. Over the weekend, the developer released the Windows Phone 8 version of InstaPic but with a slight name twist... InPic.  

The name change is likely in response to Instagram's request that unofficial client apps not use "insta" or "gram" in their titles.

InPic for Windows Phone 8 shares the same feature rich environment the Windows 8 version offers. InPic includes most of the features of Instagram including account log in, uploading photos (no videos), viewing videos, comment on photos, and follow other Instagram members.

InPic has main pages that cover your Instagram Timeline, popular photos from other members, and your profile summary. You can edit your profile from InPic.


Images can be uploaded from your Pictures Hub or by launching your camera and capturing fresh photos. InPic does have a nice selection of filters to fine tune your images prior to uploading them to Instagram. Photos from Instagram can be shared via your Social Networks (labeled as "Instagram photo by..."), emailed to friends, and saved to your Windows Phone.

In just using InPic for a short time this afternoon, it comes across as a nice Instagram client. It does lack video support and doesn't have a live tile. We also aren't sure if it has the hashtag issue, though we're leaning on that it does.

For now we'll say that InPic isn't too shabby of a Windows Phone 8 Instagram client. We'll take it out for a test drive over the next few days and see how it shakes out and get a review up on the site.

In the meantime, if you want to give InPic a try it is a free app for your Windows Phone 8 device that you can find here in the Windows Phone Store. For those wanting a Windows 8 solution, InstaPic can be picked up here in the Windows Store.

Thanks, zhoulhas, for the tip!

Better than 6tag?

jamzc92 says:

Did you really need to ask that question? Nothing will ever be as good as 6tag

6tag only better for video uploading both are great.

Adi21 says:

Plz tell how to sign in this app "Inpic".... There is no sign up option and I tried sign in with my Microsoft a/c and my Fb account but I am unable to sign in..... Plz help me regarding this........

rockstarzzz says:

I seem to automatically love apps that say "No ads". I admire selfless efforts like that :)

theroyboy44 says:

You realize they put time and money into these things. Would you spend hours and hours and hours on something and then just give it away......i don't think so. Its not like they are trying to billionaires they are supporting windows 8 but the only way they can afford to is by doing that

rockstarzzz says:

Wtf! When did I say I don't want to pay for apps? I said I love apps with no ads.

BK-one says:

Why don't you go to work for the next 6 months and tell your boss you don't want to get paid.

rockstarzzz says:

I would definitely choose to work for free vs sticking a label of KFC, McD, Apple and Gmail on each and every letter or client report I post. However, point being I said - I don't like ads. I didn't say I don't like paid apps. Probably have paid for more apps and games on WP since 2010 than these two commenters slating me combined.

fahdriyami says:


I agree. I always make sure to give them lots of praise for that in the app's review.

marky_yo says:

I am clueless on how to make an app or where to even start!  Even apps that are so so should get decent reviews! People are harsh!!  With that said, I buy apps if they are only .99 or $1.99, hell thats only a Pepsi!  I am going to lose sleep over it!  

rockstarzzz says:

But bad apps are like a warm can of Pepsi that's also gone flat. A wasted can. You don't do that daily do you?

RaphaelChaia says:

And what about the suspicious account problems, that was blacking hashtags? Does this app prevents it from happening?

Yeah, guess we should have wrote about in the ar...oh wait, look at that... ;) My guess is no, this does not have the proper image security on board.

RaphaelChaia says:

Although english is not my native language, it is good to clarify that it was a retorical question: the app DOES block you, since I was blocked, myself, after using the Windows 8 version a few weeks ago. Best regards.

the_icon12 says:

Read the article.

jlynnm350z says:

You've been Daniel Rubinoed!!

hsn97 says:

Will try this only because 6tag crashes so often.

silverbladex says:

Try uninstalling and reinstalling it. My hasn't crashed at all

hsn97 says:

That may be because you didn't surfed the app for a long time continuosly, but it crashes for me and even makes the phone lag after crashing. Several other people have also mentioned this on the reviews.

Josh Harman says:

Never crashed or lagged for me either.

RaRa85 says:

Never crashed once.

That's Rudy's way of telling you to get a life.

xratola says:

It crashes here continously too... I think it is related to bad network coverage while surfing the app

hsn97 says:

No it can't be bad network, there's something wrong with the app, my connection was fine everytime it crashed.

om3wuc says:

6tag is unusable on Lumia 720, crashes and crashes. The app is not working good on 512 MB devices. Seems the InPic is working good.

hsn97 says:

Oh yeah, that might be the reason cause i own a Lumia 620

Vistaus says:

6Tag works perfect and crash and lag free on my Lumia 720.

mgkeath says:

I've had a few crashes, but nothing I would call, continuously. Funny thing is, the beta never crashed on me

marky_yo says:

Agree never crashes

taymur says:

Crashes a lot!

marky_yo says:

Ya, reinstall it, mine never crashes, actually it literally hasn't!

Z3MN says:

Never crashed since day 1

My doubt is: did they implement the truly logout request??

theroyboy44 says:

Read article then read comments before yours......ppl

RaphaelChaia says:

No, they did not.

Lil Nas says:

WP7.8!!!!!!! Please

LaNiQuE says:

Go buy a 520 or 521 it will change your WP experience not getting apps will just keep annoying you

Duduosf says:

Haha so true!!

Want to buy a Lumia 520 for me? ;)

clappenings says:

Nice to have a few options. Props to the devs

Lewis Wilson says:

31mb? Day-yum son.

Josh Harman says:

Really, what's up with that?

xratola says:

Isn't it too much for a basic instagram app... It seems that he is a early developer who has made mistakes in the code or he hasn't compressed it ._.

ricbon says:

gonna try it

Wow, that's actually great app

xankazo says:

It's good to see more options, but 6tag got me covered. Now, it could be the client I need for Windows 8, if it's confirmed it doesn't have the hashtag issue (and yes Daniel, I read the article). :)

maxfrix says:

I have looked for something that works on my ASUS Vivotab Smart and nothing, no 6tag, instance, will this work for the TAB?

enzom09 says:

yea i use this on my yoga all the time. it's great for posting from computer

theroyboy44 says:

So after the great instagram drought, we are suddenly flooded with instagram apps. I'm just wondering when the official snapchat will come out. Or at least flooding of snapchat apps

Josh Harman says:

You won't see any snapchat apps until the official as we have already had 3rd party apps that were forced to be removed from the store.

theroyboy44 says:

True but it sucks cuz it was reported to be coming out last month I believe, but obviously things change so I'm like restless lol.

LaNiQuE says:

Going to try it out but the number of instagram apps are becoming like twitter I brought like 5 and decided to use the official app now

Josh Harman says:

No reason to get any instagram client other than 6tag until they incorporate video & security features.

Lewis Wilson says:

Yep. But if you're like me and still blocked from hasgtags give it a go. Lol

sip1995 says:

6tag is definitely better.

horbeme says:

whats the name and where cani get that case,  can that fit on my 928

rudyhuyn says:

I already received 10 mails, so I need to prevent.
Careful, inPic doesn't manage hashtag security, you can test it but create a new account before test it, else, your acount will be flagged as suspicious

hsn97 says:

But you should look ahead to fix 6tag crashes mainly on 512MB Windows Phones.

rudyhuyn says:

I work on that ;)

hsn97 says:

Thanks Rudy! :)

rudyhuyn says:

to be honest I received my first 512Mb device some day ago, it's my principal priority now

hsn97 says:

Haha, now that's a good news for 512MB WP owners! ;)

TechFreak1 says:

Indeed it is :).

badagaio says:

Same here, it just seems random. Took photo, edit it, wrote the description and then got distracted and let the phone went into lock . After that it didnt came back from that state, with a black screen and receiving mails (sound notification), I needed to do a soft reset to bring it back to normal. Lumia 720 here

andrebilha says:

And the issue of notifications that do not work there any plans to fix this bug? Only update the Live Tile when I'm followed by someone.

rudyhuyn says:

Notifications are not included in 6tag cause impossible technically to have real time notifications, instagram sends only ios and android notification format, no WP

Paola1993 says:

Let's just test them all ;)

With 'insta' in name?

So they renamed that InPic.

Inpic & instance not publish picture upload, private picture by server API instagram because ilegal. Just 6tag better & the best publish share picture to instagram & Legal

RobinPaul says:

Still prefer 6tag :)

Chill510 says:

I actually like the design of this app. Its only version 1.0 but I can see this with future updates being better. I mainly am looking for real notifications and live tiles that work....and right now 6Tag is the only one that works

tone84 says:

Im buying a brand new unlocked LG l9 for 120$ im over this whole windows experience! It lacks everything I enjoy.. Other than a great camera I don't see the need

Spedez says:

How can instacrap "own" the names for "insta" and "gram". They are so childish and evil.

neo158 says:

Anything is possible though, Apple have a patent on rectangles with rounded corners!!!!

numetheus says:

No video? Is there a reason to even get this when we have 6tag?

neo158 says:

Not really, but it's nice to have a choice.

Chris Yahya says:

I've scared because my suspicious tag at my account never revoked -,-

channing0214 says:

Off topic a little, does anyone know where I could get this phone case and who the maker is?

DinoMagic says:

Can this App actually upload a profile pic? Because 6tag can't? And there's literally no other way to upload a default pic short of logging onto someone else's non-winpho mobile device. So now you're just that creepy guy without a profile pic. Awesome.
