Popular Instagram App Now Available For Android

Instagram, the popular photo modification and sharing application previously available only to iPhone users, is now available for download on Android phones.

Instagram for Android features a intuitive interface and all the filters found on Instagram for iPhone. The app is used to share images directly to Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, and Foursquare as well as through other services or apps.

Instagram, started by two Stanford graduates in 2010, has become the primary method by which amateur photographers using mobile phone cameras are filtering pictures.

In the press release announcing the availability of Instagram for Android, the company also pushed its InstaMeet and photowalk networking ideas, in which Instagram users meet others to discuss favorite filter methods and photo techniques.

"We also encourage new members of the Instagram family to get involved with Instameets and photowalks happening in their area. It's a fantastic way to meet other great photographers, and to get the most out of Instagram's greatest feature: our users!"

Users of Android 2.2 or newer may download Instagram at Google Play.
