Instagram for Android screenshots

Today's a good day for all of you shutterbugs on Android, as the official Instagram app has finally made its way onto Google Play. The app allows users to apply filters to their photographs and upload them for others to see, and has been available to the iOS crowd for some time now. Instagram for Android is a free download and supports phones running Android 2.2 and up that support OpenGL ES 2. The app can use either the front or rear camera on a device and allows uploading to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Foursquare, and support for uploading to Flickr is said to be coming soon.

The Instagram for Android app is something that fans of Google's green robot have been clamoring for for a while now, so it's good to see that Android users can now download the official app and vintage-ify their photos to their heart's content. What's better is that the Instagram folks are saying that they're working to provide a consistent experience across Android and iOS, and although there are a few features found in the iOS app that aren't currently available on Android (like tilt-shift/blur and live preview), upcoming versions of the app are expected to unite the two versions. Can't wait any longer to begin snapping photos? Hit up the Google Play link below and get to downloading. Just don't forget to rest your trigger finger for a minute or two and stop by the comments to let us know what you think of the app.

Kirk Ngo I download it and it sucked so no
Keith Ainsley I do now.
RockinRose Wolf Donnell I don't really know what all it is or does but I have pic say pro. I downloaded it to see what it was but immediately uninstalled it cause of the size and no move to sd card option.
Stian Grøtåsen Instagram is just another stupid hype thing. All you do is taking a picture and add a filter and share it. What's new about that? BTW picsay pro is way better.
??? I don't really like Instagram for Android... On my HTC Sensation at least.
Patrick Rhodes Mobli for the win!
Yeo Salolin Waste of time
Daniel Cuadrado Why would I want an app that makes my photos look crappy???
KC Kalahasthi No Tilt-shift...!
Steve C Trevino It's ok.. my htc Rezound camera stock app does just as good.
Eric Quach instagram = instahipster
Justin Charles Reback Instagram seems pointless to me. It'll probably be something that Apple and Google copy in their own camera apps in the future and totally negate the purpose of Insta.
Robert Madsen HTC sensation XE<33

Derrell Prevost No it's annoying. I know how to use photoshop and light room like a big boy.

Paul H Nguyen so why isn't it working?
Michael Buchko Jr. It's not showing up when I do a search for it on my phone or on market.android.com on my computer, I had to go to instare.am/android and click the "Google Play" button to get to the page.
CeeGii Borels pixlr-o-matic kicks instagram's ass 24/7

Ayoub Hage What's the go? Is it a social photo Site?
Camille Phillys Best Darn it! Just when I thought Instagram was the one thing we could have to ourselves.....
Jason Dickman I don't get what the big deal is! You can make pix look hip and share them with friends. What's so different than using a different app and uploading it to Facebook where you've already got an account and friends. I'm gonna make an app where you can do statuses and everyone can like your status and comment on it.... I'm giving instagram a trial period.
DeMonte Greene My evo isnt compatible
Jose Perez Nooooooooooo Android is going to pollute instagram
Kanoe Fairley Doesn't matter that it doesn't make us a professional. I'm using it because I like it. Its a cool app to use and its free. Most of my friends are using it and they also like it.
Eric Butler Only can download it from your web browser > > > https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.instagram.android
Ricardo Santos Yup I use it
Jason Choo its more than decent app for me, but those hipsters are a big turnoff (for the reason mentioned above)
