Instagram for Android is available in the Google Play store. Go get it.
Cheers Keyan X, Adam, Justin and Mark!
as an android fan it’s painful to see these Instagram haters act so childish, even like iphone-ish users…give it a shot at least a day, if you dont like it then uninstall it and thats it. No body wants to know if your picasa or google+ apps does the same, so what! half of you haters act like this is a photography app when in reality its a social media app with a twish of photography, thats it!
For anyone having issue installing instagram, naturally the APK is up on XDA.
Because, why NOT take an amateurish picture on a phone camera and make it looks worse with Instagram filters!
Won’t download on my GNEX for some reason. Wanted to at least try it out. Also not compatible with TF101. Oh well…
The menu button doesn’t work. How can they call it an advance camera, when it’s less of a camera than the built-in camera. It takes square pictures, doesn’t let you select your focus point, should I go on.
Now that we finally got one of our friends to stop using the instagram filters on her iPhone to make the pictures worse, I can now do the same thing on Android.
Oh well, some people like this stuff.
If y’all cant get along I’m going to turn this blog around ….
So what are the great Android-specific features they touted?
There are none, it’s the same with a few features taken out because practically no one uses them.
z0mg1!!!!!!!1111 who cares?
Instagram is here, but after running it through it’s Few features, it has nothing on Pixlr-o-matic for Android. Pixlr has tons more filters and frames and can very easily be shared to more social sites and apps including Instagram.
My razr uses its own camera app for taking pictures and i cant turn on the flash/ my X uses the instagram camera full flash capabilities. ???
Hell yeah, have been waiting for this!!
And now for all who talks trash against Instagram…here’s some free advice: Don’t use it, then! And keep your opinions to yourself.
Why have to create ANOTHER social account to use this? Why not integrate with twitter or facebook? Seems like a horrible way to go here. Also, the app *feels* a little too much like iOS. WTH, did they just port this over from the iPhone without actually customizing it for Android users?
Uninstalling… now how to cancel account…..
someone already took my username.
I’ve never registered for something and they didn’t have my exact username available.
Probably the same jerk that keeps registering for stuff with my gmail account.
Why is this not compatible with my D2G? It has a camera…
What’s with all the posts about ICS camera app being better? You don’t get Instagram solely for taking pictures. It’s the social aspect of it. Just like you wouldn’t sign up for facebook just to post statuses for journaling purposes.
I like it… yes its a bit useless but if a lot of ppl u know are iphone users this is another way to interact with them… nothing more… its simple enough …
am i the only one underwhelmed (spelling?) with this app? Pixeler-o-matic or whatever it is has a ton more filters, plus you can choose pics you already took, plus you dont have to sign up for anything. just IMO…..uninstalling
Why are so many people complaining about this app? If you aren’t interested, simply don’t download it! Bitter much?
meh, now I can NOT use Instagram on purpose and not just because they were slow as hell releasing an Android app…I’m perfectly 100% happy having G+ auto-upload my pics to Picasa when I take them using my stock camera app, I have no desire for hipster-filters nor another site for my pics
I’m curious to see if all the iPhone haters who say Instagram is hipster-centric garbage will jump on this bandwagon now.
Even my buddy who has his certified i card and all, doesn’t even use it.
Still the dumbest application ever. I don’t care about lame, overused, and utterly useless photo filters. I can already do that on Android with the built-in image editor that’s part of Ice Cream Sandwich. Moving on…
Can all the folks who are not going to use this shut up? Seriously. “I’m old and can’t enjoy things in life. Let me poke fun at this while I have some time left here on earth.” Shut your face. If you enjoy your pre-existing apps and filters, use those, but for those of us who have been waiting for this let us enjoy it. Go back to knitting your socks and drinking coffee at Dairy Queen at 4 in the morning. Sheesh.
actually im 19 and i think this app is so pointless and overused… oh and i also happen to enjoy things in life.
Don’t talk to your elders like this you young facebook hipster! I’m going to go cut me an iSwitch from an apple tree and bust your arse right after I ground you from those filters and those social networks and what nots.
so when i tried the qr code supplied by another android blog, nothing…when i looked it up for myself on my phone, nothing…when i looked it up on play.google.com on my computer, nothing…but when i click “play link” here, it comes up…huh?
Me too. How’s that make any sense?
Hip hip… steray!
My OG Droid, G Nex, Thunderbolt, and Droid X are all compatible.
Incompatible with HTC Incredible 2
Isn’t compatible with my Transformer Prime.
Not compatible with the Xoom
Not into the filters AT ALL. But the social network behind seems interesting.
While that is very true, compared to today’s top tier devices it tends to fall short, just my personal opinion.
What is the point of this app? I have at least 5 others that do the same thing.
This is the app that actually has a user base around it. 30 million just on iOS; most of the Android ones have tiny usage at most.
Ooh…its an “i” thing…got it.
Because facebook, Twitter, and Google + aren’t enough? I don’t know if you ever perused the Instagram “social network”, but it’s all crappy photographers seeking validation from other crappy photographers. And every one of them worshiping at the altar of Sepia.
why the hell can i never find new applications just by going into the android market (i know, i know) and searching for them? i always need a direct link. you’d think on the day it’s released, google would know i’m looking for the actual official app and not the list of garbage it gives me when searching. the market’s such a damn mess half the time.. ugh.
Yeah, now all of us Gnex users have a way to disguise how horrible our cameras are!
It’s still leaps and bounds better than my old OG Droids camera
Downloaded. Guess I will try it out for a few days before making a judgement. So far it feels like Tumblr lite.
No support for Bionic. WTF?!
are you rooted?
I’m rooted on a Droid2Global and it’s supported, not that I even bothered downloading it…I have CameraZoomFX Pro and I don’t use that either and it’s much better if you really want to ruin your pics on your phone before posting em
it’s supported on the OG droid, and the Droid X, i can’t imagine the bionic isnt supported
Works on my rooted Bionic!
+1 me too
Ok, so I admit it. I installed it to see what all the fuss was about. It is free after all, may as well see if it’ll change my life.
I played with it for a couple minutes and uninstalled it. I guess I’m not cool enough. I don’t need a slow camera app that requires I make an account. The ICS camera app already has a bunch of effects that I don’t use.
i’m with you on this, why do i need to make an account to take pictures? i’ll stick with HDR+
If I really need a camera, I grab my SLR … this willnot make crappy home shoots look great, but you can make your home shoots look like 70′s porn stills ….
oh boy! more professional photographers!
Why is it every time I hear of a new app I go to search on the play store on my phone and it doesn’t pop up? I’m glad you post the links. But more the links take me too the desk to sure instead of the suite on my phone. Weird
“But more the links take me too the desk to sure instead of the suite on my phone.”
I want to know what he was trying to say, too. What? Lol
i think he meant to hit a p in there “but more links take me to the desk top instead of the the suite on my phone”? maybe?
Some reference to a hotel I think. He’s getting sent to the front desk instead of his suite. It’s tragic, really.
Finally, now I can be cool and artistic!
I dont want it.
Now I’ll be bursting with artistic talent like all those iPhone users! I can’t wait to change my profile photo to something that looks like it was taken on a 1965 Polaroid, and take photos of important events like weddings and funerals and kids’ soccer games and stuff; and they’ll all look like I took them with a camera I found discarded in the gutter. So artsy! Bursting with talent!
oh i get it! instagram is the apple version of retro camera?
More like Retro Camera is an Android version of Instagram.
either way, my point is made…same app, different name
Don’t forget food. People love to take pics of what they’re eating and slap a filter on it to make it look cool.
Look out, Facebook wall; here comes me eating lunch! So hip!
i laughed because i did exactly this….
you should take an “artsy” instagram photo of your post-processed food dry-docked and post it to facebook.
When you say post-processed. Do mean after I took the browns to the super bowl or my package of zebra cakes that I might pick up?
lol shut up. this app isn’t about trying to be an artsy photographer, it’s about sharing pictures you’ve taken with your friends while having the ability to add filters/edit them if you want. of course someone would try to be a douche and talk bad about it. i’d like to see you go and make an app as successful as this one. keep your dumb remarks to yourself.
I don’t want it now. Muhaawwaahaa!
Ever since I rooted my Bionic, apps that were compatible aren’t any longer! WTH?
Woo! . . . wait no smart comments Kellex? . . . Can’t wait for your opinion.
Incompatible with Transformer Prime
I can finally be a hipster! Oh wait…..my G-Nex already has most of these filters…
But your Gnex …and Mine doesn’t have a Social network built around it… Just download the app and try to enjoy the damn thing
You can’t explain anything to these young bucks. They think that since it was on iPhone first for over a year that they have to shun it. Typical fanboy retardation.
Says the guy with a Meme as his avi….
What does a meme have to do with people being fanboys? Do meme’s have something to do with a rival platform that I am unaware of?
PS: It would be ava, my AVATAR isn’t a movie file.
I don’t care if it was on iPhone first… there are plenty of apps that were there first that I was glad they came to Android.
But I’m sick of this app. I’m sick of people on facebook that put a filter on every single picture they upload. Its cool on some but on most it makes the picture look worse. It is just was overused I think and that makes me not give a rats behind that it is finally on Android.
yes its does its called share to g+
So much for registering to have it early…
lol…ya what was the point of that?
To gauge the interest in the application, and get their testing done. This is a common practice.
For the people that aren’t around the computer all day and have lives… that said, I was reading Droid Life in class when it was posted. I actually got the email fairly quickly compared to other companies that send them out the day after.
Did you actually get an email? I haven’t gotten one…
I got mine hours after I read it here and installed it. :]
Collect our emails for resell. They all do it then just say our system got hacked.
Luckily I didn’t register because I have no idea what this is and I don’t have any care for it, still not going to dl it. I am sure I have apps that are better and smoother and way more designed for Android with the same features already.
Just like a lamb to the slaughter I signed up, and got nothing. Nice marketing ploy.
I got an email from Instagram last night O.o
Damn I was 6 min late to report it
