Instagram app finally coming to Android

By on 12 March 2012

At SXSW, the announcement was finally made! Instagram’s Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger announced that the Android version of the wildly anticipated app will be coming to Android “really soon”.

This after years of Android users sitting in the bleachers watching iPhone users living it up with their fancy photo filters and exclusive social community! But not only will Android users get to join the party, but in the words of  Systrom himself, “in some ways, it’s better than our iPhone app.”Still in beta, Instagram is testing it privately.

While i’ve acquired many apps to toy and share pictures with on my Android(s), Instagram is one of those apps that I see as a barrier to switching. It’s absence on Android probably made it difficult for some to leave the walled garden that is the iPhone and iOS.
