As the most popularphoto-filtering and sharing app on the iPhone, Instagram finally comes to Android sooner.
Co-founder Kevin Systrom announced at SXSW Sunday that the long-awaited Android version of Instagram is nearly here. He teased the version on stage, but didn�t provide a demo. The Android version is currently being tested in private beta and will be released “very soon”.
�In some ways, it�s better than our iOS app. It�s crazy,� Systrom said. Running on a Galaxy Nexus, the Instagram app apparently looks great on larger-screened devices, which makes perfect sense to use considering the app�s content is gorgeous photos. The iPhone�s screen sometimes feels a little too constrained for Instagram, and more real-estate can only be a good thing.
Instagram for Android has been a long time coming, and while the wait isn�t quite over yet, the fact that the social network is talking it up at SXSW give us hope that we may not have to wait too much longer. While others have tried to replicate Instagram for Android users, they have failed to capture the essence of an app and a network that has made Instagram one of the most used apps on iPhones.
Whatever, before Instagram for Android release, we still have other great camera apps on Android to enrich our life. You can check the Top 5 camera apps for android in 2012.
