One of the things that got some people going for iOS devices are the apps and one of the apps that people are flocking to is Instagram. After a long wait, Android users no need to envy further as the beloved photo sharing app is now available in the Google Play Store.
If youâ€™ve been living under a rock, Instagram is a photo sharing app that lets you capture images, apply cool effects then share it with other Instagram users. You can also view images uploaded by your followed friends, giving you a chance to like it or post a comment.
It was rumored that the Android version will be better than its iOS counterpart so I did a quick comparison.
Turns out, the Android version is missing a feature that its iOS brother has and that is the selective focus tool. With the filters, I managed to spot a difference and that is the X-Pro. Android has â€œX-Proâ€ while the iOS version has â€œX-Pro II.â€
The Instagram app for Android has been made available on April 3, 2012 and at the time of writing, already been rated by 8,000 users.
It’s in version 1.0.0 and requires Android version 2.2 and up. Searching the word â€œInstagramâ€ on the Play Store wonâ€™t quickly show you the app so to make it easier you can download it through this Play Store link.
Note: Android phone used is the Sony Xperia S.
