It’s not just the devices which were raining at Nokia World in Abu Dhabi today. They were raining apps too. If you are a Windows Phone 8 user, there are lots of reason to smile. Stephen Elop announced that apps like Instagram and Vine are finally coming to the Windows Phone 8 in “coming weeks”.

As per some reports, the return rates of WP8 devices in US have been extremely high and that’s mostly because of people realizing late that their WP8 device doesn’t come with the official Instagram app. Well, not for long. Nokia announced that Instagram will be coming to Lumia and other WP8 devices in coming weeks.
