Instagram for Android gets 5 million downloads in one week

Guess what: Android users really, really like Instagram. Or perhaps it's more accurate to say that lots and lots of people like Instagram, and a lot of them use Android phones and tablets. At least 5 million, to be precise - today the download ticker in the Google Play Store was upgraded to "5-10 million", meaning that at this precise moment it's probably at around 5.1 million total downloads.  For an app that came out exactly one week ago, that's an astounding number... though we've got to point out that they'd be doing a lot better if they hadn't waited a year and a half before releasing a proper Android port.

Instagram for Android Review

It's finally here! Instagram has launched for Android today, and all you amateur photographers and social media fanatics should be plenty happy to give it a try. The hugely popular photo filter and tweaking app for iOS is finally available for the Android masses, and we're taking a hands-on look below for your viewing pleasure, and compare it to ICS.

Instagram for Android finally lands in the Google Play Store

The day has finally arrived, shutterbugs: Instagram is up on the Google Play Store and ready for download. The much-anticipated photo and sharing service had been an iOS exclusive since its debut way back in 2010, but the company has been teasing hundreds of millions of Android users with the release for months. The app is free, though you'll need a free Instagram account to use it, and any Android device running 2.2 or later is welcome at the party.

Instagram opens Android pre-registration page – still doesn’t give a date

If there's on iOS app that's more anticipated by Android users than the long-delayed Temple Run (yes, yes, we know, put down your pitchforks) it's Instagram. The smash hit social photo sharing service is the choice of Twitterati, hipsters and housewives everywhere, but only for those whose devices have a shiny apple on the back. The publisher has been hinting that its Android app is close to release for months now, and has finally opened up a pre-registration page for excited Android users. Alas, there's still no word on when the app will actually become available.

HTC Golf revealed via photo sample

HTC made a commitment to a "hero" strategy for phones in 2012, culminating in the One X, One S and One V models. But it would appear that these aren't the only ones they've got up their sleeve: PocketNow spotted a test photo from something called the "HTC Golf" in the EXIF data. The three-megapixel photo isn't much t ogo one, just showing a teal background of some kind, but they've also got some alleged specifications to go along with it. There's still room for the very bottom of the low-end in HTC's new lineup (the sort of niche formerly filled by the Wildfire S) though we're still a little surprised to see yet another entry so soon.

Instagram for Android due “very soon” say developers

Hipsters and iOS converts rejoice: your long period of expressionless suffering is almost over. The photo app that's taken the Internet by storm and inspired dozens of beatings towards wannabe Ansel Adams of the world (unconfirmed) is coming to Android "very soon", said Instagram executive Kevin Systrom. Android users have been clamoring for an official Android app since the photo sharing service began to surge in popularity last summer. There still isn't any concrete date for the app's release, though it was shown running on a Galaxy Nexus at SXSW in Autsin.
