Android Photographers Rejoice: Instagram Comes to Google Play


iOS users have been enjoying creating and sharing stylized photos on their iPhones for quite some time–and now Android device users can finally get in on the action as Instagram has gone live on Google Play:

Instagram – A beautiful way to share your world. It’s fast, free and fun! 

Pick from one of several gorgeous filtered effects to breathe a new life into your mobile photos. Transform everyday moments into works of art you’ll want to share with friends and family.

Share your photos in a simple photo stream with friends to see – and follow your friends’ photos with the click of a single button. Every day you open up Instagram, you’ll see new photos from your closest friends, and creative people from around the world.


☆ 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

☆ And much much more…

Senior Editor Juan Carlos Bagnell will have his full review this Friday as his Android App of the Week–but in case you can’t wait, here’s the direct link to download Instagram on Google Play (…and yes–it’s still free!).
