In August, we made a list of the top 10 apps missing on Windows Phone. Today, we are happy to announce that many of the popular applications already available on Android and iOS are coming to our platform. Moreover, Nokia has announced its own unique apps that will undoubtedly make Windows Phone more appealing than ever. Here are a number of great apps either available or on the way.

Instagram – It seems the wait is almost over. Instagram, the mega popular photo and video sharing app was announced at the Nokia World event in Abu Dhabi. Kevin Systrom, company ‘s CEO revealed that Instagram will be available in the “coming weeks”, allowing the Windows Phone users to capture and share their best moments.

Vine – It is a very popular service owned by Twitter. Vine enables you to record and share short video clips (up to 6 seconds). At the moment, the Windows Phone users are using different third-party apps including 6sec. Not much is known of the possible release date now, but Vine is likely to arrive before year’s end.

Nokia Storyteller – Storyteller is developed by Nokia. It offers you a dynamic and interactive way to relive your memories. The app integrates your pictures with the location service HERE. Then, all your journeys and memories are displayed on your timeline and on a map.
