The popular photo-taking and photo-sharing app Instagram is now available for Android via Google Play for free.
Instagram lets people apply various filters to the photos they snap with their mobile devices. Some of these make the photos look as if they’ve been taken in the 1970s or on Polaroid cameras.
Photo apps such as Instagram are gaining popularity as mobile phone cameras continue to improve.
Instagram said in a blog post that the app for Google’s Android system will have the same look and feel as the application available on Apple Inc.’s iOS operating system.
Its not just a photo editor, Instagram is a lot more than just a free photo enhancement app for your phone. It connects its users to a photo-based social network that’s more than 30 million users strong. With this powerful social functionality, the app makes it incredibly easy to not just polish and share photos, but also to keep tabs on friends through the built-in Instagram photo stream.
Instagram for Android (download) is available for free or you can download it from Google Play as-well.
