Instagram Finally Arrives on Android
By on April 3rd, 2012

The wait is finally over. Instagram, which was named by Apple as the “App of the Year” for 2011, is now available in the Android Market. In less than two years since its release, the free photo sharing app has managed to pull in over 30 million users who have already uploaded more than a billion photos.

Instagram is undoubtedly among the most anticipated apps for Android. More than 430 thousand users signed up for the beta testing program, which was announced a few days back. Instagram makes it dead simple to take great looking pictures and share them with your friends through Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr. While the quality of the picture depends greatly on the quality of the camera, smart filters ensure that the results are almost always eye catching.

Instagram for Android looks and feels like its iOS counterpart, which is of course a good thing as its simplicity and intuitiveness is what made it so popular in the first place. Instagram should work with all Android handsets running FroYo (Android 2.2) or above (with support for OpenGL ES 2). Unfortunately, tablets aren’t yet supported. The Android app is also a bit behind its iPhone counterpart with respect to functionality. Tilt shift/blur, share from feed, live preview and share to Flickr features are currently not available in the Android version, but all of them will find their way into the app in the near future.
