App Watch: Metrogram Live

Nokia may be pushing Instagram to develop an official app for its Lumia smartphones, but fans of the social photo service can download this nifty little application for their Windows 8 devices.

One glance at Metrogram Live brings Tweetro to mind. Although this is an unofficial application, it brings so much to the table that pushes the bar incredibly high for the official one. More on that below, but before that a quick look at the official description:

“There is an app for everything! Introducing Metrogram Live, your own platform where you can experience the very best of Instagram that leverages the benefits of the crisp & fluidic design of Windows 8 platform.

Metrogram Live is an Instagram photo-viewer client app for Windows 8. It is beyond any traditional social app on the market in its class.”

Pinning is something that is prominent in Metrogram Live. The free app allows users to pin their favorite photos (or even favorite users) to the Start Screen. Commenting and liking images is included, as is simple, fast and effortless navigation — a must for a social app like this.

There are a hundred different features listed on the official page, but I’ll leave the exploration bit for you. The latest update, however, brought a number of new and impressive enhancements.

The app supports Windows 8 on all processors, making it a perfect choice for tablets with its touch-optimized interface and bold, beautiful design.
