Instagram, the uber popular iOS photography app that uses filters to replicate 1970′s-like photos, is slated to finally make its way to Android devices. Reports show that Instagram’s user base is around 14-15 million, and is expected to double with a release for the Android Market. “We have two people working on Android now,” says Instagram CEO, Kevin Systrom, at LeWeb in Paris. “I’m excited to be able to see our numbers today nearly double.”
Currently there are no details on when the app will be released for us Android users, Systrom says they are still focusing primarily on increasing membership. During Le Web, the company also said it plans to include ads in the near future which would require appealing to many advertisers. “Obviously, we didn’t start a business to not make money,” Systrom says. “Our focus now is on growing the network. You really need to build up the network, or no advertisers care.”
Anybody looking forward to seeing the Instagram photo app become available to Android?
