Like throwing a Real Housewives cast party without any wine, Instagram today released a version for Windows Phones that is devoid of any useful features.

First, the newly released app doesn't let users snap pictures, rather they have to be uploaded from the phone's camera roll. Another key feature missing is the ability to upload videos, so we're just going to have imagine what your slowly disappearing piece of french toast looks like. The Verge notes that users can't tag people or view that little-used map of your geotagged pictures.

But for the two dozen Windows Phone users, the app does let you view pictures of people with real phones and it's also going to take a bit longer when uploading that sunset photo. Basically, it's very annoying. A blog post from the Facebook-owned company explained that the app isn't complete. 

We’re not finished, and our team will continue developing the Windows Phone app to keep releasing features and bringing you the best Instagram possible.

This doesn't bode well for the Blackberry version, huh?
