This is Instagram for Android. It’s one of the best-designed Android apps out there, and does exactly what it is supposed to do: allow the user to take photos and add filters to create even more beautiful images, which can then be shared on a variety of popular social networks. Also, now that the Instagram app is no longer an iOS exclusive, a massive influx of users to the platform will emerge.
Just like the iOS version, the app is designed to have five categories — home, popular, shoot, news, and profile. These five do the exact some things as the iOS version, and mostly all the buttons and animations are tailored (with taste) to fit Android, but again, still is very sharp; the quintessential of Android app design. In my side-by-side comparisons of the app with the iOS version, the Android version does tend to lag by a second or so when applying filters or publishing an edited photo, but to a native Android user, that would be virtually unnoticeable. It seems that as a whole, the only thing the app is missing from the iOS version is tilt-shift and vignetting (which can easily be added with an update).
And of course, I wholeheartedly recommend Instagram for Android to anyone, and everyone. It’s fantastic.
