Instagram Launches on Android

After a big wait, Instagram has finally launched their Android application, so Google fanboys and fangirls around the world will be celebrating their ability to take beautiful photographs with Instagram’s famed filters.  The news was posted on the Instagram blog and it should be a big win for Instagram.

 

You can download the app here and try it out.  It has the features of the iPhone application.  For those of you who haven’t used it before, it will let you take a photo easily and add effects.  A lot of the charm of the application is how easily the user interface invites the user in.

The service also has a social network element, where it allows users to upload their pictures online and share it with others.  There are tons of famous users such as Rihanna who use the service to share their, ahem, wilder exploits.
