Instagram is one of the most popular photo sharing applications on Apple's (News - Alert) iOS, thanks to the many updates and upgrades it underwent over the last year. But now, Instagram is finally coming to Andoid, solidifying rumors earlier this month of its eventual arrival on the platform.
Instagram originally released to the Apple app store one of the most comprehensive photo sharing/editing tools available on mobile devices. Photos stored on Instagram are compatible with Flickr, Facebook and Twitter (News - Alert), and feature similar location and friend tagging abilities. Use with other devices is in the pipeline, though the company will continue to release updates as decisions are made.
The signup page now reflects its affiliation with Android (News - Alert), still pending an official application later this year. The page also provides a space to submit an email address, likely for early registration.
The application is already hugely popular, though the developers seem to be playing a somewhat dangerous game. Building excitement obviously works on one level, but creating a wait time on an application with only a few extra bells and whistles will probably not go over well. Much like Facebook’s (News - Alert) delay of their iOS application, the firm will inevitably see annoyed users. One can only their signup page means that in the next few weeks, those seeking the app will have it on their favorite Android devices very soon.
