Instagram for Android now available for download

For close to two years, iOS users are the only ones enjoying Instagram, an easy to use photo capturing, editing, and sharing app deeply integrated to popular social networks out there.


That’s going to change as Instagram finally made its way to Google Play (previously Android Market) freely available for download to Android users that make up a big chunk of the smartphone market.

Instagram for Android seems to be just a ported app from iOS as it does not fully utilize the Android framework (menu button does nothing). The Tilt-Shift filter for some miniaturized photos is also missing.

Anyway, what you’ll get are the following features:

  • 100% free custom designed filters and borders
  • Lux works its magic by making your photos more vibrant and brings out details in your photos you couldn’t see before
  • Instant sharing to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Foursquare (Flickr coming very soon)
  • Interact with friends through giving & receiving likes and comments
  • Works with Android versions 2.2 and above that support OpenGL ES 2
  • Full front & back camera support

Indeed, Android users can now join in the Instagram fun and this app is going to be one hot download for the next few days.

    Yikes, dadami na mga instagramers lalo. mawawala ang exclusivity and appeal sa mga ios users. hehehe.

  • I already tried it on android and it was fun and easy. Nice! 😀

  • Hello, Neat post. There’s a problem along with your website in web explorer, would test this?
    IE still is the market chief and a big portion of folks
    will miss your fantastic writing because of this problem.

  • Your mode of telling the whole thing in this post is
    genuinely good, every one can easily know it, Thanks a lot.

  • If you think about the evolution of both, and even Google+, hese platforms are now gearing their
    services toward visualization. It will have its own unique advantages, including higher texture resolution and enhanced frame rate options.
    Don’t think that you should use evcery single social media
    platform (although I do, but it’s part of mmy business).

  • Magnificent web site. Plenty of useful information here.
    I'm sending it to some buddies ans also sharing in delicious.
    And certainly, thanks in your effort!
