Conclusion:

Metrogram Plus is a nice and well designed Instagram client for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 devices. The app makes sure that you can access all the basic functionality of Instagram on your Windows 8 device through it, and the only drawback that I felt about the app is that it doesn’t allow you to post images to Instagram. Apart from that, it’s a pretty neat and nice little app to have on your Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 device.

I rate it a 4 out of 5!

Get Metrogram Plus.
