Android Instagram Fervor — Over 1,000,000 Downloads in One Day

Like holding a live water hose shut and then letting it go, Instagram has just been flooded with Android users excited to get the colorful photo application.  With somewhere between 1,000,000 and 5,000,000 downloads in just one day and an average rating of 4.4 on 50,000+ reviews, the application just may become one of the fastest growing applications in Android history.

If there was ever a doubt as to the incentive for Apple developers to create for Android, that’s all gone now.  A million users in a day for an application that isn’t related to any big brand or promotion is a dream come true.  It sends the message to application developers that if you persevere with a strong idea and strong execution, your app will go just as viral on Android as it does on any iDevice.

We talked more about the application yesterday, and encourage you to head over and get the app here.
