Instagram promises Android app, again

Instagram says Android is in the cards soon - a promise the company has made before

Instagram is one of my favorite iPhone apps. You snap a photo, add a retro-looking filter (for better or worse) and it adds the photo neatly to your timeline within the app. If you're feeling inclined, you can have the photo posted to Twitter, Facebook, Foursquare or Tumblr. Sadly, Android users haven't been able to enjoy this app, but that might change soon.

At this year's Paris LeWeb Conference, Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom said that a team at Instagram is working on getting the app up and running for Android. Of course, it's a story we've already heard before, and to date Instagram is sorely missing from the Android market.

Instagram launched in October 2010, and in a year it has attracted over 50 million users. The fact that it is a photo-editing, photo-sharing and social networking app all in one accounts for its tremendous popularity. It's also very easy to use, so even the non-photographer can take halfway-decent looking photos.

If you own an iPhone and aren't using Instagram yet, you can download the app via this iTunes Link.
