For those Android users out there who have, since 2010, been watching their friends use their iPhone to capture old-school images with popular app Instagram, and have wondered when they’ll receive they’re own taste of retro, wannabe photography — the wait is all but over…
Recently, at the 2012 South by Southwest Conference, Instagram founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger unveiled that Instagram for Android is certainly on its way, and “in some ways” is “better” than its iOS counterpart.
Over the weekend, the Instagram team posted a live “sign-up” page for Android users who wish to be “the first in line” for the upcoming Android app. Interestingly, after providing your email address on said page, you are (as shown above) presented with the words “thanks for signing up! We’ll be in touch soon!”, and nothing more, so the exact details of the email that register-ees will receive remains a mystery.
Overall, what impact do you think the release of Instagram for Android will have on the Android user-community? What about iOS users? Will this reduce the appeal of Instagram, as it’s no longer a one-platform exclusive? Leave your opinion in the comments below.
