    Rumors are that it's coming, initially as a Nokia exclusive. Story started after an ad for a 620 was spotted with an Instagram tile.

    Never caught on to why people use Instagram...it makes all your photos look like sh!t.

    I don't think it's about photo quality as much as its utility in quickly satisfying your inclinations in being an attention *.

    @Harlequin: I don't get what the appeal of split-tone food is.

    It appeals to a certain demographic, just as do all social-media services. Teens in particular seem to love it, and so it's a big deal if MS (and Nokia) wants to sell phones into that market.

    And to some people, it gives them a feeling of "memory".

    It's more than a photography app, it's a social network. Like Flickr, but for people who are less pretentious.

    As for the quality, think of your average awful cellphone photo, pretty awful, no? Now add vignetting or some of the other stock filters, and suddenly it looks less awful and has a moody feel to it. Hence the appeal. It's Lomatography all over again.

    I'm guilty of this - except I use the stock camera app. I do it when I'm eating out, so I can remember what I had, what the occasion was, who I was with, everything - photographing the food is just a part of it.
