Instagram for Android — Available Now.
Today, we’re excited to bring you Instagram for AndroidTM. We’ve already seen more than 30 million people join Instagram to create and share beautiful photos on their iOS devices, and now we’re thrilled to offer a way for Android users to join their iOS friends on Instagram to share their photos with the world.
We’ve been working tirelessly to make this new Android app a first-class mobile photo-sharing experience. We’ve been meticulous about translating the Instagram experience to the Android platform. The Android app offers an extremely familiar Instagram experience when compared to the iOS app. You’ll find all the same exact filters and community as our iOS version.
For the over 30 million people already using Instagram, this is a big step forward for the community as a whole. When we started working on Instagram, we tried to imagine what the world would be like if every single person on earth could share the world around them through the lens on their phones. With the release of Instagram for Android, we’re one step closer to making that goal a reality. Now, more of your friends and family can share their lives, and follow yours, through a series of beautiful images.
We’re so excited to welcome Android users to what has become an inspiring and thriving community. We’ve worked hard to bring you the best photo-sharing experience on Android, and look forward to seeing your photos and hearing your feedback. Enjoy!
Photo Tips: Android Photography Applications
We’ve researched applications available for Android that can help you enhance and improve your photographs. Here are a few apps for simple and quick image editing to get you started!
For basic image editing, Adobe Photoshop Express is a great application! It gives you the ability to alter exposure, saturation, tint, contrast & brightness quickly for simple image edits.
Combining Multiple Photos
Everyone loves combining multiple photos into one! A simple and easy to use application, Diptic, allows you to combine up to four images into one single frame. Be sure to check out this Photo Tips blog on combining images for some great tips!
Have you ever captured the perfect shot right when someone starts to walks through the frame? Or maybe you want to remove those unsightly wall plugs & switches in order to redirect focus to the decor. While happy accidents can create beautiful “right place, right time” photographs, the TouchRetouch application can help remove unwanted content from photos!

Photo Feature: Easter and Passover
Over the weekend, Instagrammers worldwide celebrated Passover and Easter with feasting, worshipping and hunting for eggs. Revelers brought their cameras along for the ride, and we loved browsing through all of the weekend’s great pictures:
Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes & hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a photo announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.
This weekend’s theme was #twoofakind, which asked participants to capture photographs of objects or people in pairs. Every Monday we feature some of our favorite submissions from the project, but be sure to check out the rest on Instagram here.
User Feature: Framed in Mexico City
It’s always fun to discover Instagrammers who stick with a theme. Rodolfo Fuentes (@donrodomarinero) does just that. He keeps his picture frame on-hand and uses it to frame his Instagram shots just right. Take a look at some of our favorites!
Since 1953, the Republic of Korea – not to be confused with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea – has been territorially defined as the land below below the 38th parallel on the Korean Peninsula.
