Users can enjoy unlimited uploads and will have the ability to like and comment on other people's photos and videos.
Waze has also come to Windows Phone 8 today. Waze makes it possible to join forces with other drivers and crowd source real time road conditions, saving time and gas money.
Instagram and Waze are just the latest in a wave of popular apps to arrive in recent weeks. Others include Vine, Asphalt 8: Airborne, and Angry Birds Star Wars II.
