The Wait Is Finally Over: Instagram Comes To Android

We knew it was the time was coming folks: Instagram has officially made it out to Android devices and is now available in the Google Play Store. We recently highlighted several alternatives to Instagram for Android devices which may have more bang for your buck and features than Instagram itself, but hey– the Android platform always gets the most popular and relevant stuff, just like our iOS-based bretheren. And just like iPhone users, you too will be able to get in on yet another means of filtering your precious moments and sharing them with your friends via a photo stream. Huzzah!

If you’re on an Android 2.2+ device— don’t delay. Hit the Play Store link or QR code below to see what all this hubbub is about and get in on the social photo filtering action.

    I just found an amazing feature that I don’t think iPhones can do! You can use your native camera app to take photos which gives you control over ISO, White balance, Exposure and much more. You can use it in instagram too instead of taking pics and importing them.
    To do this you have to click on your profile button on the bottom right corner, then click on settings on the top right corner. . Then click on camera settings, uncheck “use instagrams advanced camera”
    That’s it. Now when you are in instagram and you pull up the camera function, it uses your ICS or gingerbread camera!
