Hipsters and self-proclaimed smart phone photographers… Instagram for Android users is here!
A new version of the popular photo-sharing app, is now available for download at the Google Play store. According to Instagram, over 430,000 Android users [including yours truly] had signed up on for the app on the company’s waiting list a week and a half ago. Since its launch in 2010, the app has been an iOS exclusive, and today it’s finally up as a public download. The new Android will work on any “camera phone” with Android 2.2 or later, though it doesn’t work on any Android tablets. Visually, the new app is similar to the iOS app with the basic layout (home, popular, photo taking, personal, and your settings page), but you’ll see slight visual tweaks throughout that make it identifiably an Android app. All the filters and community features are the same across iOS and Android, and Instagram notes that the Android app doesn’t have any additional tools or features not available on iOS.
Since it’s launch in 2010, Instagram has been a major hit. In March they reported that over 27 million iPhone users had downloaded the app. Now, the company claims to have over 30 million registered users. That number will increase tremendously after Android users get their hands on the fun and addicting app.
