Finally, Instagram Android Version is Available in Google Play

Sorry for my always bad memory but I still remember that I have been told everybody that Instagram for Android is coming several days before (Here: Instagram For Android Runs Better Than iOS ). And now, it is available in Google Play. What's more, only 2 days past, this app had reached over millions of downloads.

Launched in 2010, Instagram has been exclusive to the iPhone (and camera-enabled iPads) because Instagram's CEO Kevin Systrom wanted it to be perfect. Systrom was quoted as saying Instagram for Android is "one of the most amazing Android apps you'll ever see."

The Android version should be virtually identical to the iPhone experience with the exception that Tilt Shift/Blur, Share from Feed, Live Preview and Share to Flickr are absent till now.

In terms of functionality, the Android application itself is identical to its Apple iOS cousin, featuring simple flash controls and a camera-switch button to alternate between front-facing and rear-facing cameras with a single tap. Unfortunately, the application still lacks spot-focusing, cropping and zooming after a picture has already been taken.

As a newer in Android, Instagram still have some bugs need to be fixed. With so many Android phones available with all ranges of cameras surely this was a task that will probably take another update or two.

You can download it in Google Play: Instagram
